The Cask of Amontillado - Creepy #6 (December, 1965)
Adapted by Archie Goodwin & Reed Crandall- 8 pages
I was a huge Poe fan as an adolescent, so I was delighted when I later discovered the Poe adaptations scattered throughout various Warren magazine. Being buried alive is certainly a terrifying concept, but the thought of being slowly 'bricked in' really rattles me. Reed Crandall's artwork is simply gorgeous, and Goodwin is able to make Poe's prose more accessible for a 20th century crowd. He does, however, append an ECish epilogue that really doesn't do much for the story, and is the culprit for this one not being higher up my list. This was has been reprinted a few times in later mags.
