I liked this issue featuring Poe's works. Rich Margopoulos did take a bit of literary liberty with "Man Of The Crowd" since Poe didn't say why the man in question sought crowds, but Margopoulous's concept of a psychic vampire is as good as any explanation.

The last tale, Cask of Amontillado, while good, left out some of the finer points of the story (Montressor's family Crest, the trowel revealed to show Montressor was a 'mason') but a fine rendition of the story nonetheless.

Thanks for the Poe 'Poest'.
