Based on the original story itself rather than the various cinematic films, this is a rendition of Frankenstein, the haunting and sophisticated tale that you have not seen before. Frankenstein (the name of the doctor and not of the monster itself!) is truly one of the great tragedies of literature.

    This was one of more accurate graphic novel adaptations of Frankenstein, based directly on the original novel rather than any of the various lore Hollywood and others have added over the years. The art was a little primitive, but it was obvious the creative team had an affinity for the source material and really put forth some effort.

    I like graphic novels based on classic literature, so I didn’t understand why this graphic novel got only mediocre reviews. After reading it, this is why: CONS: -The novel jumps around when Frankenstein’s creation recounts his story... after being created to learning to speak as a man and then finding Frankenstein for his request. If you haven’t read the book, this is very confusing. Basically, the middle of the book needs to be edited to follow a chronological order so that new readers can unders I like graphic novels based on classic literature, so I didn’t understand why this graphic novel got only mediocre reviews.

If you haven’t read the book, this is very confusing. Basically, the middle of the book needs to be edited to follow a chronological order so that new readers can understand. -It feels like a page or two are missing or maybe the panel transitions are terrible. PROS: -The graphic novel tries to stay true to the story. No additional baggage. -The artwork/lettering are good. Not exactly DC Comics or Classics Illustrated level but good for independent graphic artists/writers with such a small production team. As a side note, I am not sure why Goodreads have so many versions of this same book, which throws off the ratings. This version (51 pages) is both #1 beginning (28 pages) and #2 ending (28 pages). Unfortunately, both versions have the same choppy storyline.

    Not great The Frankenstein story is a true classic, literature and movies, Graphic novelization of these types of classics can be difficult...this one was a miss...but not by much....story and art could've been better.
