Frankenstein Alive, Alive -- Still!


I was exceedingly happy to stumble across the third installment of Bernie Wrightson's Frankenstein Alive, Alive! series. This  "sequel" to the original Mary Shelley story began with a bang two years ago then limped along for a second chapter months later and then disappeared with a whimper. I don't know what the frequency of these will be, but hopefully more often than once every few years. It's good stuff though, vivid Wrightson on arguably and ironically his most vivid characterization.

  1. I only read Mary Shelley's novel for the first time in February as an e-book and it was interesting to see how Frankenstein comes across as a totally selfish jerk while the monster is a sensitive and sympathetic creature who only kills because he's hated and rejected by society - the finale in the Arctic when he decides to commit suicide by building himself a funeral pyre was really poignant.
