AHOY Comics' snarky anthology/desecration of Edgar Allan Poe returns for a new season-beginning with the ultimate Poe mashup! In Dean Motter's "The Tell-Tale Black Cask of Usher," the drink-addled writer falls prey to his own horrific imagination. Hunt Emerson offers another slapstick "Poe and the Black Cat." A selection of horrific prose and pictures rounds out the issue. Painted cover by Richard Williams (MAD).

    Motter does a great job both writing and illustrating this story. There are even a few amusing essays in the back. Ahoy Comics had proven once again that they are one of best new publishers in comics. Read Full Review

    This is a must-buy book for fans of Edgar Allan Poe or a good laugh. Motter's tale is clever, funny, and an absolute joy to read. I didn't enjoy the poems, but the short story by Mallory is fun, and Emerson's two pages are a delight. If you want fun and horror, you want Edgar Allan Poe's Snifter of Terror, Season Two. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Its a fun idea that is executed well story wise but the interior art is ok at best and the cover is misleading. Still worth a read though, so check it out. Read Full Review

    Edgar Allan Poe stories work due to the tension that builds towards a terrifying release. Unfortunately, this comic does not deliver on this promise, nor does its deliver much on the promise of anthology-style comics. Read Full Review
