31 Days of Halloween - Day 8
Roy Thomas Presents Frankenstein - The Classic Series Written and Drawn by Dick Briefer Volume 3
PS Publishing. 2014.
Cartoonist Dick Briefer had previously crafted a comic book series starring a gruesome and often violent version of the Frankenstein Monster, but this volume (the first actually published in this series of collected reprints) presents a less horrifying, friendly, gentle monster who serves as the occasional protector of the town of Mippyville from an assortment of weird and malicious supernatural foes and criminals. While this is a humor book, there are some pretty dark images and character designs and some gruesome deaths. This is a very entertaining collection of stories.
