EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR’s debut issue features the ultimate Poe mashup!

Hunt Emerson offers another slapstick “Poe and the Black Cat.” A selection of horrific prose and pictures rounds out the issue.

What people are saying about Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror:

“Poe’s legacy is only getting weirder these days with Ahoy Comics and its comics magazine series Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror, an admirably bizarre concoction that is equal parts Tales from the Crypt and Drunk History. The boozy author retells his tales of horror and mystery and things get (you guessed it) pretty weird.”
— DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD

“A zany look at horror through the weird interpretive lens of a drunk
Edgar Allan Poe as your guide through classic tales of the macabre.”
— io9

“Snifter of Terror is the EC Comics-meets-Mad
Magazine book you’ll want to read.”
—  PC MAG

A “tantalizing new collection of frightful stories ….. It’s a refreshing
measure of the macabre from some of the genre’s top talent,
with a unique twist on the source material.”
— SYFYWIRE

“What do you get when you mix Edgar Allan Poe, syphilis, breakfast cereal, and a barnacle? Sounds like a joke with a terrible punchline, but in this case, the result is splendid. Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror #1 provides the world with all of that and so much more.”
— FANBASE PRESS

“Exploring hilariously dark tales of suspense, shock and horror,
this is one ghoulishly excellent comic you won’t want to miss!”
— IMPULSE GAMER

“A great, fun read.”
— COMICON

“Fun and creepy in all the right ways.”
— FANDOM POST

“Absolutely hysterical.”
— READING WITH A FLIGHT RING

Publisher – AHOY Comics

AHOY Comics debuted in the fall of 2018 with the bold promise for readers to expect more from its line of comic book magazines, featuring comic book stories, poetry, prose fiction, and cartoons. The independent, Syracuse-based company is the brainchild of Publisher Hart Seely, an award-winning reporter whose humor and satire has appeared in The New York Times and on National Public Radio. AHOY’s Editor-in-Chief Tom Peyer is committed to publishing comics with a (dark) sense of humor with titles like the superhero parody THE WRONG EARTH, the religious satire HIGH HEAVEN, the sci fi spoof CAPTAIN GINGER, the time travel tales PLANET OF THE NERDS and BRONZE AGE BOOGIE, HASHTAG: DANGER and the anthology series EDGAR ALLAN POE’S SNIFTER OF TERROR. This summer, the company will publish the highly anticipated SECOND COMING, the satirical comic book series by Mark Russell and Richard Pace in which Jesus Christ resumes His Holy Mission.
