Edgar Allen Poe's Snifter Of Terror Gets a Second Season With Hunt Emerson, in Ahoy Comics' October 2019 Solicits

I have loved Hunt Emerson's comics since I was a small child. His album covers for The Goons was probably my first experience, and discovering Firkin The Cat as a teenager was… instructive. He has worked widely, from the extremes of Outrageous Tales Of The Old Testament and Lady Chatterley's Lover to the all-ages Little Plum for the Beano. His recent Bloke's Progress from longstanding is pretty damn amazing and now he's making another move for the US market, returning to Ahoy Comics' comedy anthology Edgar Allan Poe's Snifter Of Terror, out in October, alongside Dean R. Motter, Alex Ogle, and sitting prettily alongside Ahoy's October 2019 solicitations with Mark Russell and Richard Pace's Second Coming #4…

A selection of horrific prose and pictures rounds out the issue. Painted cover by Richard Williams (MAD).
