Graphic Novel Review of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein by Pete Katz

Read for: Graphic Novel Challenge & Favorite book adaptation
Synopsis: An illustrated and abridged adaptation of Mary Shelley's original novel of Frankenstein.
My Review: I have long avoided any of the graphic novel adaptations of my all time favorite book because I don't think the art ever really captures what I imagine the creature to look like, well that was until I stumbled across this version by Pete Katz online. I ordered it hoping for the best based on the cover and was not disappointed! The art in this graphic novel really captures the dark, gothic theme of the book but also the beauty of it. The condensing of the story is also great, you don't feel like you are loosing anything out of the original story. This is really the best version of Frankenstein that I have come across (besides the original of course), illustrated or even movie!
My Rating: Finally someone who pictures the Creature the way I have and was able to illustrate it! I am so happy to have found this book and I highly recommend it as the GN version of Frankenstein to add to your shelf!  I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!


  1. I'm super wary of adaptions of this book too. I'm glad this one didn't disappoint you.

    1. This was the best I have seen, I really am glad I took the chance on it!
