ABOUT THE BOOK
The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe is a reimagined version of the Harvey and Eagle Award-nominated graphic novels from Image Comics which features revised scripts and eye-popping new art by the artist of the Bram Stoker Award-winning Kolchak the Night Stalker: The Forgotten Lore of Edgar Allan Poe, Luis Czerniawski. It also features sensuous colors by newcomer, Andrea Messi, and letters and design by the super-talented Simon Robins. This issue features a cover by talented newcomer, Pablo Fernandez, who will be taking over the art chores as of issue 6! And trust me: he doesn’t miss a beat.
Edgar Allan Poe has lost everyone he ever loved and now he is losing his mind. Haunted by his wife’s ghost and his many literary failures, the poet tumbles into a fantastical world created by his genius…and his madness. This world called Terra Somnium is a nightmare region that merges his macabre literary creations and Norse, Greek, and Egyptian mythological gods and monsters of old, all hell-bent on stopping him from escaping the land of dreams.
WHAT IS IT SIMILAR TO?
I’ve often described this story as “Alice in Wonderland meets The Lord of the Rings.” You will also see shades of Homer’s The Odyssey,Dante’s Divine Comedy,and the novels of Poe’s friend, Charles Dickens.

Risks and challenges
The books are complete, except for the special back matter which we will be completing during the campaign, so the risks are extremely small. We’ve already completed four successful Kickstarter campaigns, so we will do what we say we will do. We have had several packages destroyed or lost by postal workers and we’ve replaced them out of pocket. If you’ve had issues with your local post office, you may want to try the digital option.
