Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few works by comic-book artists have earned the universal acclaim and reverence that Bernie Wrightson's illustrated version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein was met with upon its original release in 1983. Twenty-five years later, this magnificent pairing of art and literature is still considered to be one of the greatest achievements made by any artist in the field. Now, Wrightson and Dark Horse Books are collaborating on a beautiful new hardcover edition of the book, published in a larger 9" x 12" format intended to show off the exquisitely detailed line art of one of the greatest living artists in comics today. This book includes the complete text of the original ground-breaking novel, and the original forty-seven full-page illustrations that stunned the world with their monumental beauty and uniqueness.

The original edition of this book is nearly impossible to find. Don't miss your chance to enjoy one of the most talked-about books of the last twenty-five years, Bernie Wrightson's Frankenstein.

Mary Shelley (née Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, 1797 – 1851) was an eighteenth-century British writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights, best known for her Gothic novel Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus (1818).

Bernie Wrightson has been creating horror art for over forty years. Born October 27, 1948, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, he is an American artist known for his horror illustrations and comic books. He co-created (with writer Len Wein) the comic character Swamp Thing, and definitively illustrated Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Bernie has also collaborated regularly with author Stephen King, having illustrated The Stand, Cycle of the Werewolf, and Dark Tower V.
