Frankenstein : Original Text Paperback
Edited by Jason Cobley
Illustrated by Declan Shalvey, Jason Cardy, Kat Nicholson, Mike Collins, David Roach, James Offredi
The classic novel brought to life in full color! 'Cursed be the hands that formed you'! True to the original novel, Declan Shalvey's naturally gothic artistic style is a perfect match for this epic tale. "Frankenstein" is such a well known title, yet the films strayed so far beyond the original novel that many people today don't realize how this classic horror tale deals with such timeless subjects as alienation, empathy and understanding beyond appearance.
This is another great story, beautifully crafted into a superb graphic novel.

Frankenstein like you've never read it before. The graphic novel contains the original text and brings it to live with fantastic and stunning artwork.
Review by andyray
I gave the original-text novel already in my library a four-star, but these English publishers brought that up to a five-star? Why? Because the graphics are absorbing and can be viewed again and again. They change some in differently lighted places. Their editions are also offered in a precised original (Reader's Digest style), a modern language style. (One shudders to think). It's the best use of graphics I have hyet seen.
