These are authors from the awesome web serie the Poe Party by @shipwreckedcomedy ! I wish I could drew more of the cast, especially the cop duo which were so much fun to watch. So if you didn’t  watch this show yet, i don’t know what you are waiting for. LIT JOKES EVERYWHERE.

And again sorry for the RGB conversion. tumblr, whyyyyyyyyy 

Which Classics Author Should You Fight?
  • Charles Dickens: The Victorian equivalent of a white male tumblr meninist. Fight his past newspaper blogger ass, though the guy does write about his own "tragic experiences", so be warned that a caricature of you will probably be appearing in his next novel.
  • The Brontes: idk they're from Yorkshire I wouldn't risk it
  • Dante Aligheri: Yess he spends all his time in his room writing self-insert Bible fanfic and never goes outside, 10/10 would fight this nerd. You will win. Easily.
  • Mary Shelley: Why would you want to fight Mary Shelley???? She's nice and bad things happened to her and she invented scifi! Go reevaluate your life choices.
  • Victor Hugo: Don't. He will kill you otp viciously and then spend 38 pages describing someone's hat.
  • Jonathon Swift: It's 50/50 you'll win, but you might fall asleep from his long-winded prose before you land a punch.
  • William Shakespeare: Little is known about him, other than the fact that he had free access to bears and swords and a penchant for revenge and mass murder as plot devices. If you're gonna fight him, watch your back.
  • C.S. Lewis: Whiny and allergic to adjectives and allegorical and super racist. Fight Him. So long as your childhood can take it.
  • J.R.R Tolkien: Shakespeare's biggest fan, so a total dork. Also old and shell shocked. Your call.
  • William Thackeray: Him and his friends will get drunk and gang up on you. Not advisable.
  • Alexandre Dumas: He was once described as "the most generous, large-hearted being in the world" and had extensive military training. Just... don't.
  • Harper Lee: Still alive, so she's got a foot up on the rest of them.
  • George Orwell: Total fuckin' politics nerd. Will keep a diary of the fight.
  • Jane Austen: You'd feel too mean, it'd be like punching some harmless lana del-ray book club chic. Fight her if you want but be aware of the emotional consequences.
  • Mark Twain: Constantly angry looking. Just look at that mustache. You want to fight him already, don't you?
  • Oscar Wilde: The sassiest little shit ever. Be prepared for cane wielding sassmeister. You'll probably lose, but it'll be worth it.

POE PARTY VALENTINES!

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we thought you might want some Poe Party Valentines to express your literary love. Perfect to share with that guy or gal down the street who never appreciates all the poems you write about them and all the ravens you send their way.

Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party NOW ON KICKSTARTER!

  • HG: If you bite it and you die; its poisonous. If it bites you and you die; it's venomous.
  • Louisa: What if it bites me and it dies?
  • Charlotte: That means you're poisonous. Jesus Christ, Louisa, learn to listen.
  • George: What if it bites itself and I die?
  • Lenore: It's voodoo.
  • Annabel: What if it bites me and someone else dies?
  • Mary: That's correlation, not causation.
  • Oscar: What if we bite each other and neither of us die?
  • Ernest: That's kinky.
  • Edgar: Oh my god.
  • Ernest: So. Who broke it? I’m not mad. I just want to know.
  • Annabel: I did. I broke it...
  • Ernest: No. No, you didn’t. Poe?
  • Edgar: Don’t look at me. Look at Lenore.
  • Lenore: What?! I didn’t break it.
  • Edgar: Huh. That’s weird. How did you even know it was broken?
  • Lenore: Because it’s sitting right in front of us and it’s broken!
  • Edgar: Suspicious.
  • Lenore: No, it’s not!
  • George: If it matters, probably not... Mary was the last one to use it.
  • Mary: Liar! I don’t even drink that crap!
  • George: Oh really? Then what were you doing in the kitchen earlier?
  • Mary: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that, George!
  • Annabel: Alright let’s not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it, Ernest.
  • Ernest: No. Who broke it?
  • Oscar: [whispering] Ernest, Charlotte's been awfully quiet…
  • Charlotte: Really?!
  • Oscar: Yeah, really!
  • ...
  • Ernest: I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict ten minutes from now, they’ll be at each other’s throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.

“i wrote 360 in a period of my life where i felt pretty vulnerable. there were a bunch of people being nice to my face, but behind my back things were different. i think everyone experiences it, but it didn’t actually stop for me until i learned to draw the line. and essentially, i think that’s what this song is about; being able to have the confidence to stick up for yourself and.. be yourself.”  —  George Shelley, 360 Introduction
