A horrifying tale brought to visual clarity, this retelling stays fairly true to the original story with little variation, although it is in a briefer form. Irving's portrayal of the monster's desiccated flesh and pitiable attitude convey the story swiftly to the reader. This is a good edition as a quick re-reading of the tale, the black and white illustrations increasing the gothic feel of the story. I would not, however, recommend this as an initial introduction to M. Shelley, since there are many deeper story themes that may be lost by a reader with only a perfunctory knowledge of the story.

Decent retelling of the story, but pictures are just so-so. Many characters have big heads or hands. One character looks the same in every graphic he's in. ( )

A graphic novel adaptation of the great horror story. From the beginning of the book the artwork and simple sentence structure tells both viewpoints of Victor Frankenstein, the creator, and Frankenstein, the monster. Both perceive themselves both as victims and monsters. Reluctant readers as well as accomplished readers will appreciate the story ending in two people living lives of regret and shame. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142404071, Paperback)

Victor Frankenstein, a Swiss scientist, has a great ambition: to create intelligent life. But when his creature first stirs, he realizes he has constructed a monster. Abandoned by its maker and shunned by everyone who sees it, the monster turns on its creator and haunts Dr. Frankenstein with murder and horrors to the very ends of the earth. Artist Frazer Irving’s cinematic and moving portrayal of the doctor and his creation is sympathetic and powerful.
