THE TELL-TALE HEART by EDGAR ALLAN POE

You think I’m crazy, don’t you?

Well, I’m not! I just hear and see things that others don’t. Like the death watch beetles scurrying behind the walls. Or the beating of the Old Man’s heart as he sleeps. And his eye…… That wretched, pale blue eye burns into my very soul. That’s me. So you see, I have to kill him. I have no choice. 

In this graphic novel adaptation, Edgar Allan Poe’s classic short story is transformed into a heart-pounding, visual experience portraying one man’s journey into the dizzying depths of madness!
