Edgar Allan Poe just lost everything. His dead wife is haunting him in his dreams, his latest book has bombed, and the imagination that fueled his stories has become a curse. His prayer to never dream again is answered one evening as he falls asleep in an outhouse. His discarded creativity takes the form of his dream child, Edgar Allan Poo, who must now undergo a strange odyssey through the poet's troubled mind.
This August, Shadowline presents a twisted glimpse into the dreamlife of America's greatest fantasist in Dwight L. MacPherson & Thomas Boatright's unusual epic The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo!

But here's what this solicit doesn't tell you:
1. The graphic novel features the "8 Lost Pages of Poo." These pages will appear exclusively in the book and will not be available on the webcomic site.
2. "96 Pages" means 96 pages of story. No fillers here, my friends. From the moment you open the front cover, till you contentedly close the rear cover--you will encounter nothing by story!
3. The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo will be a beautiful, over-sized book. The dimensions of this surreal graphic novel will be 10.7 x 8.3 x 0.4 inches--the same highly-acclaimed format as Image's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Graphic Novel!
Other books may give you a five page preview, but not us! Oh, no! We are offering a FREE 19 PAGE PREVIEW in the form of a webcomic! So be sure to bookmark the page and read it at your own leisure. And it's a weekly webcomic, so be sure to check back every Saturday for another brand new page!
