"I think this is the 5th or 6th time I've used the Frankenstein Monster in a story. I've always been fascinated with Mary Shelley's creation and I've found the creature lends himself to all sorts of new stories. There were eleven White Chapel Murders. Only five of them were attributed to Jack the Ripper. I became obsessed with the idea of a ‘what if’ situation where these two monsters crossed paths." -- Steve Niles

Bernie Wrightson passed after only completing five pages of this issue. Before he died, he made arrangements with Kelley Jones to finish illustrating the comic based on his layouts.

As you will see it's not the most seamless of transitions but it's not too jarring either. As disappointing it is that the series was cut short as it was, I think everyone deserves credit for coming together and bringing forth some semblance of a conclusion as opposed to leaving it unfinished in limbo.

On a final note if you liked these posts the entire series is on sale at Comixology for 99 cents an issue (with the first three issues available in a one-shot) here.

For those who don't know, Bernie Wrightson once did illustrations for the novel Frankenstein and it's widely considered to be his definitive work. In my opinion it's the best visual depiction of the monster.

In 2012 he started what was going to be a 13-issue miniseries with Steve Niles that served as a 'sequel' to the original novel. The second issue was delayed by a few months and the third issue by two years. Bernie Wrightson passed away in 2017 but before he died he selected Kelley Jones to finish the fourth and final issue.

Given that Wrightson is sadly no longer able to draw I imagine that it will never be completed (I suppose they can find another artist but Wrightson was clearly the main selling point.)

So without further ado here is a glimpse at what might have been with the first issue.

Note: Only one issue has come out so far, however this issue came out months ago and the second issue has been delayed. As such, I am posting seven pages.

So if you're a fan of the original novel (or just Berni Wrightson's art) you should definitely pick yourself up a copy. Hopefully future issues will come out in time; this came out in May.

My contribution to horror week. Nice juicy scans of five of the illustrations Berni Wrightson did for FRANKENSTEIN.
Along with "the Black Cat," this is the apex of his career, for me.
