The Devil's Dictionary and Other Works by Ambrose Bierce


The Devil's Dictionary and Other Works by Ambrose Bierce

Ambrose Bierce's 1911 satire is blended with the surreal and macabre art of Gahan Wilson, creating a funny yet poignant comics adaptation. Switching seamlessly from illustration to full comic panels and back again, Wilson brings his signature dark humor to Bierce's work. The Devil's Dictionary is still popular to this day, and has spawned numerous imitations, most recently The Computer Contradictionary making it a perfect selection for Classics Illustrated.
