"EDGAR ALLAN POE mangles classic tales and brand new stories in this cross between Drunk History and Tales from the Crypt! A comedic collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s sickest stories, adapted by comics’ snarkiest talents, and original stories―all introduced by Poe at his drunkest. Collecting all of the comics from the 6-issue AHOY Comics series, plus prose, a puzzle, and poetry."

"AHOY Comics is led by Publisher Hart Seely, an award-winning reporter whose humor and satire has appeared in The New York Times and on National Public Radio; editor-in-chief Tom Peyer, a veteran of DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint; Stuart Moore, who handles something called "Ops"; and Chief Creative Officer Frank Cammuso. Since its debut in September of 2018, AHOY Comics has pledged for readers to “expect more” from its line of comic book magazines and graphic novels with full length comic book stories, accompanied by “extras” including short prose fiction, the occasional recipes, and even a crossword puzzle."
