  1. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 4 Slipcased

    Regular Price: $69.99

    Sale Price $21.99

    Dick Briefer's Frankenstein character, created for Prize Comics, was comic's first ongoing horror series. But unlike every other adaptation, Briefer made the "monster" the star of a comedy strip, with friends who are witches, mummies and strange beings...it's a spoof on horror stories. In later issues Frankenstein became a true monster, meting out violent justice with nary a second thought. But in these early stories, it's all good clean fun as the monster tries to cope with a crazy, surreal world that he doesn't quite understand. Learn More

  3. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 3 Slipcased

    Regular Price: $79.99

    Sale Price $19.99

    Writer/artist Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein for Prize Comics is widely regarded as being America’s first ongoing horror series. Indeed, it was Briefer’s work that probably caused the creature to be actually identified as Frankenstein instead of the nameless monstrosity from Mary Shelley’s novel. Splitting the stories between two schools—humor and horror—Briefer’s tales are absorbing and unsettling in equal parts. Some of the humorous material has already been reprinted, though not necessarily in order nor in total. Until now! Learn More
  4. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 7

    Regular Price: $48.00

    Sale Price $14.95

    While earlier issues were pure humor, with these issues Frankenstein takes a dark, sinister turn into pure horror. Each issue also includes two back-up stories, horror tales typical of the horror comics genre before the code came along. There's work by artists Mort Meskin, Marvin Stein (several), and lots of unknowns. Poor Frankenstein, when he's not killing well-deserving bad guys, he also encounters mummy creatures, a wolfman, is frozen alive, is taken aboard a whaling ship, inadvertently makes friends with a grave-robbing ghoul, and finds an equally horrible mate, who of course he loses to a gun-toting mob.

  5. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 6

    Regular Price: $48.00

    Sale Price $14.95

    With issue #18, the stories took on a far darker tone and became straight horror, in keeping with the boom in horror comics at this time. Poor Frankenstein was once again the tragic figure, and watch out folks if you mistreated him or what few sympathetic acquaintances he came across. Death and destruction was the payback from our boy, and lots of it. Stories include "World of Monsters," "Satan and the Sailor," "Tomb of the Living Dead," and "Tomb of Death!" Also includes backup horror stories by Mort Meskin and others. Learn More

  7. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 8

    Regular Price: $48.00

    Sale Price $14.95

    While earlier issues were pure humor, here Frankenstein continues, and in fact concludes the complete run. It's now entirely a dark, sinister turn into pure horror. I particularly like these stories, as the mute monster relentlessly deals out harsh, final justice to anyone who wishes him ill. He also became a silent judge-and-jury when he finds others persecuted or wronged, and never hesitates to mete out violent justice! He's the man! Learn More
  8. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 6 Slipcased

    Regular Price: $64.99

    Sale Price $19.99

    Alright--now we get to the stories I like best. With issue #18, Frankenstein took a swing to the dark side. No more humor, it was now time for dark, gothic stories of mayhem and murder. Franky spares no one if he's po'ed or trying to protect anything from dumb critters to little girls, and the bad guys get done in in lovely pre-code fashion. Dick Briefer tightens up his artwork to work in this pure horror vein, and these issues from now on are twisted and fun. Learn More
  9. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 7 Slipcased

    Regular Price: $64.99

    Sale Price $21.99

    Now it's all horror all the time and Frank takes a dark, pre-code horror turn. Each issue also includes two back-up horror tales by artists Mort Meskin, Marvin Stein (several), and lots of unknowns. Poor Frankenstein, when he's not killing well-deserving bad guys, he also encounters mummy creatures and a wolfman, is frozen alive, is taken aboard a whaling ship, inadvertently makes friends with a grave-robbing ghoul, and finds an equally horrible mate, who of course he loses to a gun-toting mob.

  10. ROY THOMAS PRESENTS FRANKENSTEIN Volume 5 Slipcased

    Regular Price: $64.99

    Sale Price $21.99

    Frankenstein in Prize Comics is widely regarded as being America's first ongoing horror series. Our hero meets man-eating plants, green mold that comes to life, darkly sinister babes, crooks and hoodlums, and even actor Boris Karloff in an offbeat story. These are entirely looney storytelling, and it's really pretty fun stuff from the Golden Age of Comics. Indeed, it was Briefer's work that probably caused the creature to be actually referred to as Frankenstein instead of the nameless monstrosity from Shelley's novel. Learn More
