Frankenstein Alive, Alive!

After too long an absence from comic books horror artist Bernie Wrightson is back, along with writer Steve Niles, with a follow-up series culled from Bernie’s earlier work.

Frankenstein Alive, Alive! from IDW continues the story of Frankenstein’s monster.

The monster is content living and working amongst circus freaks. It’s a good life with friends, food, shelter and solitude.

As the story progresses readers learn of the monster’s fate after it attempted to kill itself, first in ice and then under a volcanic landslide. As always Bernie’s art is spectacular and Steve Niles’ story is ripe with mystery and suspense. Welcome back Bernie-it’s been too long!
