Abstract:

Graphic Novel. 'Cursed be the hands that formed you!' True to the original novel (rather than the square-headed Boris Karloff image from the films!), Declan Shalvey's naturally gothic artistic style is a perfect match for this epic tale. Frankenstein is such a well known title, yet the films strayed so far beyond the original novel that many people today don't realise how this classic horror tale deals with such timeless subjects as alienation, empathy and understanding beyond appearance. Another great story, beautifully crafted into a superb graphic novel. This is the original text edition.
