Poe, Lovecraft, and the Inspiration of Young Readers!

June

16 hours to go on our Kickstarter campaign, and we are already starting promotion on issue 4! We are pleased to announce that comics superstar Jonboy Meyers is our cover artist for The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe issue 4! If you’ve been reading Marvel or DC Comics, you will surely recognize his name! We will reveal his stunning cover on May 1 at 10AM (EST), and we can’t wait to show you this amazing piece of art which is out-of-this-world fantastic! To say we are excited to see him cover a book featuring our Little Poe and Irving is an understatement! Jonboy is a great friend and we are huge fans of his work!
