"Grimly enlivens the prose while retaining its power to both frighten and engage sympathy for the monster-creator Victor Frankenstein. This is a richly morose nightmare of a book, a primer for young readers on the pleasures and dangers of decadent languidness."—New York Times Book Review

Gris Grimly's Frankenstein is a twisted, fresh, and utterly original full-length, full-color graphic-novel adaptation of Mary Shelley's original text, brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Gris Grimly. The first fully illustrated version to use the original 1818 text, this handsome volume is destined to capture the imagination of those new to the story as well as those who know it well.

New York Times bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly has long considered Frankenstein to be one of his chief inspirations. From the bones and flesh of the original, he has cut and stitched Mary Shelley's text to his own artwork, creating something entirely new: a stunningly original remix, both classic and contemporary, sinister and seductive, heart-stopping and heartbreaking.

Inside My Sketchbook: How Frankenstein Became Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein.

From the Back Cover:

I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with an uneasy, half vital motion.

Thus did Mary Shelley describe the vision that inspired her to compose Frankenstein on a trip to Geneva in the summer of 1816. A tale of science and morality, of love and loss, of hope and despair, the account of Victor Frankenstein's terrifying experiments into the very nature of life and death still echoes two hundred years after its original composition—an enduring reminder of man's ability to create and his ability to destroy. It has inspired generations of writers, artists, and filmmakers, and has borne countless adaptations—in print, on the stage, and on the screen.

But nothing quite like this.

Gris Grimly, another student of unhallowed arts and master of gothic horror, has long considered Frankenstein to be one of his chief inspirations. From the bones and flesh of the original, he has cut and stitched Mary Shelley's text to his own artwork, creating something entirely new: a stunningly original remix both classic and contemporary, sinister and seductive, heartstopping and heartbreaking. It is the first fully illustrated version to use the original 1818 text and is destined to capture the imagination of those new to the story as well as those who know it well.

Beautifully terrifying and terrifyingly beautiful, this is Frankenstein as you've never seen it before.
