Covers of Frankenstein : Tales from the Harbor, Volume Four

This one should be painted on velvet!

The classic monsters put on their best poker faces in Calgary-based illustrator and comic book artist Fiona Staples’ wraparound cover for the anthology title Tales From The Harbor, Volume Four.

I can take the surface any which way, but whatever it's painted on, it should be on my wall!

Very funny, but also a little unnerving somehow to see the Creature wearing a shirt. I always knew that he was a smoker though.

Oh, that is all kinds of awesome.

Is The Bride off in the kitchen making sandwhiches?

That's really a wonderful piece. I wish she sold prints of it.

Well, you can't accuse him of not dressing for the occasion, anyway. :) I'm surprised to see the Monster workin' the sophisticated pipe. I was led to believe he was a cigar man.

This is fantastic! Now if someone would just do a comparable "Last Supper" homage, the museum could open!
