Alive, Alive!

Heads up! Artist Bernie Wrightson returns to Frankenstein, with scripts by horror-writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), in the new ongoing series Frankenstein Alive, Alive! arriving in comic shops this week.

First published in 1983, Wrightson’s astounding illustrations for Mary Shelley’s novel are legendary. Now, 30 years on, Wrightson is creating a sequel to the classic tale, in comic book form. The long-cherished project finally crystallized when Steve Niles came aboard as writer. The combined talents make Frankenstein Alive, Alive! an important, must-see addition to the Frankenstein canon.

Steve Niles has posted a fascinating conversation with Bernie Wrightson.

Just saw this on another blog and have tentative plans to seek out a copy and snag it today.

How this project escaped my attention all this time is a mystery, but thanks to the internets I'm now aware and will take proper measures!

Thanks for the tip.
