Product Description

Ambrose Bierce’s 1911 satire is illustrated with the surreal and macabre art of famed New Yorker cartoonist Gahan Wilson, creating a funny yet poignant presentation. Switching seamlessly from illustration to full-color comics to adapt “The Boarded Window,” “Dead,” and “An Imperfect Conflagration,” Wilson brings his signature dark humor to Bierce’s work.
