A groovy Frankenstein cover from Curt Purcell’s superlative Groovy Age of Horror blog. This image is one of several Frankenstein fumetti magazine covers posted there, along with links to Purcell’s previous posts on the subject. Fascinating, eye-popping stuff.
Please be aware, NSFW content awaits you. Purcell explores the outer reaches of horror pop culture, and the illustrated nudes depicted above are very tame compared to some of the material regularly posted on Groovy Age.
By the way, Curt Purcell is interviewed on the Eerie Books Blog, a feature of the Eerie Books website, home of the Wylie, Texas store devoted to horror books, movies and collectibles. Eerie Books recently posted a list of 42 Frankenstein Movies to See Before You Die. Every title links to a different website, with Son of Frankenstein linking to Frankensteinia. Thanks for the shoutout!
Much thanks also to writer Mike Segretto for including Frankensteinia on his Frankenstein A to Z list posted in May on his blog, Psychobabble, which is devoted to classic horror and Rock n’Roll. A nice mix, if you ask me. Mike’s A to Z goes all the way from Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein to Zacherley’s Frank and Drac Are Back, with stuff like The New York Dolls, Frankenhooker and Remco toys in between.
