Anyone heard of it? I ran across a teaser trailer for it on Youtube while doing research on Flash. The artwork instantly floored me, a gorgeous combination of American comics and 1980s anime. And the fact that it was based on a short story by Poe was a huge plus.

So, I went to check out the site. The site's interface alone blew me away. I clicked to read the story, and it's this...animated graphic novel format? You click through to animate it.

The story's 10 chapters long, and just concluded in September. The first chapter confused me, but after that? I was completely hooked. So hooked I sat at the computer six hours straight because I COULDN'T STOP READING.

I could sit here and try to describe the story to you, but there's no way I could. Really, the whole atmosphere screams Poe, but...modernized, with a big dose of eroticism.

That being said, if you're weak of heart or stomach, you might want to avoid it. It's very explicit sexually in all ways possible, pretty much. And it winds up getting pretty damn gorey, too.

But if that doesn't bother you, you enjoy Poe-esque horror, stories about mortality and immortality, about love, about the highs and lows of human nature... you might want to check it out.
