Wrier Tom Peyer and artist Greg Scott turn Poe’s apocalyptic poem into a fast-paced sci-fi medical thriller. Letterer Rob Steen focuses on the witty and romantic banter between lovebirds, Donna and Serena. The vivid colors by Lee Loughridge heighten the destruction of the city as the giant worm knocks down tall buildings.  

4)The Leprechaun King!

Writer Mark Russell and artist Peter Snejbjerg do a great job combining folklore with Poe’s sense of dramatic irony. Letterer Rob Steen emphasizes the moral of the story, how absolute power can corrupt anyone with a single touch.

Writer/artist Hunt Emerson depicts a fun sense quirky of humor in the comedic short segment. The hilarious narrative reminds me of those wordless Spy vs. Spy comic strips.
