BONUS! The great underground/alternative artist is interviewed by Bill Baker about his Haunt of Horror project for Marvel, which adapts Poe and Lovecraft.

I feel that much of Poe’s works deals directly with that most basic of all human feelings, fear, and its more extreme state, horror. He speaks directly to me because I am a very fearful guy. And he expresses these feelings in an artful way, which to me makes them more palatable. Lovecraft also deals with fear and horror but in a very different way. Poe gets close to his characters, even inside them. The fears that Lovecraft deals with are usually strange, alien, even cosmic, definitely from the outside.
