    The Snifter of Terror series has a lot of potential for telling some fun tales of horror and the macabre as it progresses " especially if it continues to bring in talent like it does here. Both of the main stories here are entertaining while the extras included in the book bring a little more charm and horror as well. I think the second story resonated with me more with the lighter and more humorous approach and I also really liked what we got from the opening of the first story with Poe there. Fans of this kind of material will definitely enjoy having something fresh and new out there to engage with and I'm hopeful this book has a decent run to explore more of the genre. Read Full Review

    While one more story might have truly sealed the deal, there really is a lot to like about Edgar Allan Poe's Snifter of Terror. Many comics hit the wall of establishing their own voice, but with an anthology, there's really more of a question of setting a coherent tone amongst your stories " and thus far, Snifter really hits that perfect cocktail of horror and humor in a way that really stands out among the pack.

    It's smart and executed well enough, especially Mark Russell's piece. But with each story being so short and self contained, I can't see this being something I'd read ongoing.
