Lists with This Book. This is without a doubt my favorite edition of this book. To me, Frankenstein the novel does have its flaws, but the concept itself is just so great and it works on so many levels the good outweighs the bad to the point the flaws are overlooked.
In this case, Wrightson’s illustrations more than make up for any perceived flaw in the story.

As I have said before, Wrightson is probably my all time favorite comic book artist, and as this volume proves, he seems to have been born to draw Frankenstein.
His illustrations just add so much atmosphere to an already atmospheric novel that it takes things to a whole I wont say much about the novel itself since I’m sure everyone has the basics down.
I will say I prefer the arctic ending of the novel to the villagers ending of the movie, and while both the movie and novel were great, I think the storyline of the novel was superior.

The edition we look franknestein is an illustrated version published by Dark Horse Books in Mary Shelley travelled through Europe instopping in Gernsheim in Germany, which is just ten miles away from Frankenstein Castle, where two centuries before, an alchemist was engaged in experiments. Later Shelly stayed in Geneva in Switzerland where much of the story takes place. The weather was terrible that summer so it was suggested they all write horror stories to pass the time.
The result for Mary was Frankenstein based on a dream she had about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made. Little did she know that her novel would still resonate today almost two hundreds years from its first publication and inspire hundreds of adaptations across stage, TV, film and radio, with countless fictional spin offs.
But just why is the story about a student scientist with good intentions who creates a creature so appealing and enduring? Ken takes frankenxtein detailed look in this Bottled Imp Halloween special.
