Frankenstein Meets Santa Claus

As Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein ends, The Monster is last seen jumping from Walton’s ship “upon the ice raft which lay close to the vessel. He was soon borne away by the waves and lost in darkness and distance.”

Many writers have conjectured on The Monster’s fate as he disappeared into the merciless Arctic night. Turns out, according to Paul Dini, writer-producer of numerous animated TV series including Batman and Justice League, that the Big Guy ended up as a doll maker at Santa’s North Pole Workshop.

That’s the kick off to Santa Claus Vs. Frankenstein, a one-shot, 32-page Holiday comic starring Santa’s brat of a teenage daughter, Jingle Belle. Stephanie Gladden provides the art. The issue, in comic stores December 4, launches the Dinitoons imprint at Top Cow comics.

Writer Paul Dini interviewed on Newsarama.

Hah, that sounds like a good little story. I love Dini's character designs, and who doesn't love a little monster in their egg nog?
