Cartoonist and animator Doug Gray keeps a lively blog called The Greatest Ape where he posts classic humor comics by the likes of Carl Barks, Walt Kelly and Harvey Kurtzman. Gray is currently showing some of Dick Briefer’s lighthearted Frankenstein stories.
There are classic strips here, like Frankenstein and The Mummies, and Frankenstein and The Terrible Werewolf. Check out the insane Frankenstein and The Time Machine where our hero and Professor Goniph careen through time, forwards and backwards, colliding with martian invaders along the way. Briefer dresses The Merry Monster in a futuristic costume and as a musketeer, and there’s even a “it’s a bird, it’s a plane” joke thrown in.
It’s fabulous, wigged-out stuff and the scans are gorgeous, the colors really pop. You'll come away just shaking your head at how brilliant Dick Briefer was.
