Read for: Graphic Novel Challenge & Frankenstein!
As a note: I have the trio bind up and #4 single issue but there is a complete bind up out there.
Synopsis: "A grand treat of Victorian horror featuring the further adventures of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's classic monster, as ghoulishly illustrated by Bernie Wrightson, the true master of the macabre!"
Review of Trio: As you probably know, I am obsessed with Frankenstein and really enjoy checking out retelling and adaptations, but am often disappointed. Frankenstein Alive did not disappoint! I loved the art style, it added to the dark and depressing tone of the story and the depiction of Frankenstein's monster is spot on in my opinion. I love how this followed the creature after Victor Frankenstein's death and how his torment of Victor and by Victor did not end with his death. We follow the creature and he attempts to find solstice and peace in the world, and constantly questioning the morals of life. This is great for fans of the original or new fans to get a taste of Frankenstein and his creation.
Review of #4: I really enjoyed this conclusion to the Frankenstein Alive story arc. I love the questions that are presented and Frankenstein's creature has to decide up on his own moral standing and path. The ending is also left open for more, but you will have to decide for yourself what happens to the creature.
My Rating: This was a fantastic adaptation of the Frankenstein story, I love how it follows the creature after the conclusion of the original story, it give the creature the opportunity to do things differently. I give this one a rating of Four Paws and I will be tracking down a complete bind up!
