Inspired by Mary Shelley's immortal gothic horror tale, Frankenstein Alive, Alive brings new life to the Promethean monster, courtesy of Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and Bernie Wrightson (Frankenstein, Swamp Thing). Victor Frankenstein's cobbled together creature continues his adventures, embarking on a journey to discover his own humanity. Bonus 18-page gallery section of never-before-seen layouts and pencils by Wrightson, some with the original text, all scanned from the original art. All-new Introduction by Steve Niles, a tribute to his friend Bernie.

Additional art is supplied in the final chapter by Kelley Jones (at Wrightson's request), who stepped in to complete the series upon the comic book legend's untimely passing.

Originally issued in a comic series that was at first uncompleted, then collected in a trade paperback with just the three stories, and a fourth comic book finale. Now all in one volume, and a very handsome package.

Superb work by Wrightson. Niles in his introduction talks about working closely with Bernie on many projects, aided by the fact they were neighbors and and also dinner and scrabble buddies along with their wives. But he goes on to explain how this book was Bernie's special project, "It was amazing to watch. It was like he just shifted gears and started turning out some of the most amazing comic pages I'd ever seen."

Bernie knew he could not complete this project, so he hand-picked Kelly Jones to finish it, from Bernie's thumb nails and layouts. "As the pages [from Kelley] started to come in, Liz [Bernie's wife] and I were mesmerized at the skill and care Kelley put into them...It is a testament to Bernie's incredible love for Mary Shelley's immortal creature that he devoted so much of his remarkable career to celebrating it."
