The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe only using 6 panels. By Bea Park
By Bea Park
The narrator (who definitely isn't crazy) and his wife lived happily with their many pets, specifically their black cat, Pluto. The narrator had a close bond with Pluto, although that would soon change.
Here kitty kitty...
The narrator developed a drinking problem and his disposition changed. One night, the narrator came home drunk, and thought he saw Pluto avoiding him. In a rage, he gouged out one of Pluto's eyes.
No! What are you doing?!!
Pluto's one eye bothered him, so the narrator went to their garden and hung the cat from a noose in a tree. After, he missed Pluto and wanted another cat.
I swear I'm not guilty!!!
At the bar, the narrator saw a black cat who looked identical to Pluto, except for the white marking on his chest that resembled gallows. He took the cat home, and the cat became extremely affectionate towards the narrator.
Frustrated with the cat's never-ending affection, the narrator attempted to kill Pluto, but his wife stopped him. So, the narrator murdered his wife without a second thought and hid her behind the wall.
The police came to inspect the narrator's house, and they didn't notice anything until he tapped on the cellar wall and a cat screeched. The police dug out the wall and found that the cat had eaten the wife, and the narrator was guilty.
