I bought Edgar Allan Poe's Morella and the Murders in the Rue Morgue from Dark Horse this week and it strengthened a view that I've had for awhile. That view is that Richard Corben is the best artist today when it comes to comic book adaptions of the works of Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft.

I've absolutely loved all of Corben's work on any comic book adaption of those two writers that I've read. His style just seems to fit the atmosphere of their stories better than any other artist I've ever seen. The one thing I would complain about this issue was that it was coloured. Corben is one of the few artists whose work looks better in black and white.

I've been dismissive of Corben's work for a while now (tired of penises in every other panel). But based on your recommendation and my love for Poe & Lovecraft, I'll check it out.

Yeah, I'm not huge fan of his other work, but his art just seems to shine and just fits like a glove when he's doing stuff based on one of those two writers. I tend to avoid what he does when that isn't the case.
