Lenore, the Cute Little Dead Girl is a fictional character created by Roman Dirge, inspired by the poem "Lenore," by Edgar Allan Poe. The comic tells of the adventures of Lenore, and her variety of friends. The primary focus of the graphic novel is dark humor, with many of the stories having amusing twist endings. Common themes are the reinvention of children's songs, games, and nursery rhymes to something more macabre, and subverting all sorts of pop culture icons and cultural figures in to topics of dark comedy. In one story, for instance, Lenore accidentally kills the Easter Bunny. While Lenore's actions often result in the death or injury to those around her, and in various forms of chaos, she is not a malicious character, and often thinks she is doing good.

The poem was first published as part of an early collection in 1831 under the title “A Pæan”. This early version was only 11 quatrains and the lines were spoken by a bereaved husband. The name “Lenore” was not included; it was not added until it was published as “Lenore” in February 1843 in The Pioneer, a periodical published by the poet and critic James Russell Lowell. Poe was paid $10 for this publication. The poem had many revisions in Poe's lifetime. Its final form was published in the August 16, 1845, issue of the Broadway Journal while Poe was its editor. The original version of the poem is so dissimilar from “Lenore” that it is often considered an entirely different poem. Both are usually collected separately in anthologies.
