This 144 Paged graphic novel was probably one of the best I have read. It consists of a bundle of short horror stories. The stories are mainly of the classic rather than the scary for example, "The Monkey's Paw". Based on horror standards today, you feel that these stories are not scary but back then people would have thought of these as.... Just plain messed up.

The artwork itself was plain and simple. the only colours were black and white and I thought that it added to not only the classical af

I am not a big fan of the horror genre, so I read this to get a glimpse into some authors and themes I may not get from my regular reading. For a variety of different, entertaining, and thought-provoking stories I think this book contains what you need.

There are some authors in this graphic collection that are synonymous with horror such as H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe. The two stories by these authors truly symbolize the horror genre. There are also story selections from older writers who

Fantastic collection of popular and not so well-known horror tales from the 1800s. Starting with a wonderful tale from Lovecraft "The Thing on the Doorstep", my favourite in the entire collection. Michael Manning's art was superb and for some reason his portrayal of the main character really captured me. I have to say I've only read Lovecraft in anthologies and so far to date have not had any luck with him but this tale has made me see why he is so beloved by many. A brilliant story wonderfully ...more
Horror Classics is a graphic novel compiled and edited by Tom Pomplun, consisting of illustrated adaptations of many classic horror stories. It contains 11 famous stories written by various authors, including Edgar Allan Poe, H.P Lovecraft, Jack London and W.W Jacobs.
Of all the stories, my favorite was “The Thing on the Doorstep” by H.P Lovecraft. It tells the story of a young man, Daniel Upton, who in the end of the story is forced to kill his best friend, Edward Derby. Derby marries a girl nam
BOTTOM LINE: Really nicely drawn (but ruthlessly edited) versions of several classic horror stories in large paperback form. I much prefer the - full - originals, though.

My imagination being rather, um, wild (grin) the pictures those classic words call up in my head whilst reading are far more horrific than any depicted here, and thus this large graphic book was a disappointment to me. And the fact that each story was heavily (although fairly well-) edited was extremely annoying for me. I wante
The stories are very good in adaption to graphic novel genre. The only flaw I think for myself was the drawings for The Monkey's Paw, they were not as clear as I would have liked. I think the essense best for conveying emotion in the characters would have been if there was a little less repeated lines over the drawings. Otherwise the book brought a refreshed experience at the reading of these tales.
This was a really fun read. The artwork was a bit of a mixed bag, but overall it was quite nice. It makes me want to delve into some of the featured writers and their stories. Saki's The Open Window and The Monkey's Paw in particular were outstanding.
This was a fun, quick read. I think the graphic aspect made many of the stories easier to read and enjoy than if I'd picked up the actual story. It's a perfect pick for those times when you want something slightly spooky, slightly silly, and light.
A collection of 12 classic horror stories adapted into comic format. Some work better than others. "The Thing on the Doorstep" and "The Monkey's Paw" were my personal favorites--deliciously creepy and effective in this format.
My favorites from this volume include:

The Monkey's Paw, by W.W. Jacobs
The Open Window, by Saki
