Story Origin: Edgar Allan Poe poem, “The Raven”.
Synopsis: A classical (third!) rerun of old story by Edgar Allan Poe. Raven comes in and thus quoth the raven, “nevermore”. The third adaptation is as bloody as the other story in the book.
Comment: This is not the first time Mr. Corben reruns his old comic stories. A new version contains same details: same house, same guy with sideburn, but the interpretation is fresh and new. Even raven is more modern than in the first version.
Special: The story appeared first time for Warren, “Raven”, and after that in B&W for Haunt of Horror by Max Comics (Marvel), “Raven [II]”.
