A double take story with the second issue of Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Blood! The story at first starts off with a twisted version of monster cereal creations. There are two people dead on the floor from an apparent vampire bite as a man is letting the town know. Then we are taken to the home of the vampire and his undead bride as they host a breakfast fest with some well known characters in the cereal world. One guest though stayed even after everyone left and this leprechaun isn’t your typical one. The story reveals that this leprechaun is a king but lost his kingdom to another monster cereal. The leprechaun wants to take revenge but the vampires are hesitant. The story is to be continued after a wild few pages that you must read!

The next story is a writers hangout as Edgar and friends are sitting back and relaxing. We read as Edgar doesn’t want to take another drink of booze yet his friends don’t believe him. He then starts a discussion of his latest writing of a story he is working on titled The Book of Amontillado. His friends are not impressed as they don’t want to talk about work but Edgar gives them an insight of the story anyway. The story is told by Edgar and gives them a soul shaking experience.

I enjoyed this second issue of Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Blood as it’s a fun read. The cereal monsters story is a very creative story that I can’t wait hear about the ending. This gives you a dose of horror by Edgar but a slight weird affect that is generally common in his stories. All in All, this is a fantastic read for any comic book reader that enjoys a story that will get your creative juices going. This will keep you entertained and will want to reread as well.
