Review: I absolutely loved this manga! I know I usually post fiction reviews but I have to admit I like my manga too. My inner nerd was screaming out to me when it saw manga and Poe in one book. I felt like this book was the perfect modernized creation of Poe possible. The artwork was beautiful and the stories had me on the edge of my seat turning pages. Who knew Poe could be so much fun? I think this book is great for students, so they can learn the work of Poe without all that out of date language. Students and other young people will be able to get the same great feel and thrill that Poe gives us, it would just be delivered in an more modernized and artistic fashion.
