Overview

Presenting a faithful adaptation of the classic novel from Mary Shelley. Based on the original story itself rather than the various cinematic films, this is a rendition of Frankenstein, the haunting and sophisticated tale that you may not have seen before. Frankenstein (the name of the doctor and not of the monster itself!) is truly one of the great tragedies in written literature.

Shunned by his creator, the monster is forced to find acceptance in a world that is both confusing and frightening to him. The monster becomes enraged at the treatment that he receives and seeks revenge against mankind which has rejected and tormented him merely because he is different. And the focus of his rage? His creator. Join writer Eric Jackson and artist Charles Yates as they delve into the psychological horror that is Frankenstein.
