“Every time I get an issue of these beautiful comics based on my Frankenstein novels, my bone structure changes, my body morphs, the lines smooth out of my face, and I am a kid again, full of glee and wonder and expectations of spooky thrills.”–Dean Koontz
“I’m so pleased that I can bring this graphic novel adaptation to its shocking, violent and grisly conclusion,” says co-writer Chuck Dixon. “It’s alive! As much as I love the horror genre, this part of the story moves into an area I’ve more expertise at. Mainly, wild and crazy action with lots of guns and derring-do.”
“I’m really looking forward to getting my hands dirty on Frankenstein with a master at the horror craft,” says artist Scott Cohn. “And my liver. And my spleen.”
