First released in a series of eight volumes, collecting the entire run of Frankenstein, from its beginnings as a humorous strip (as it is here) to the deadly serious horror comic it became in the 1950s. But...due to the lack of availability of the rare early Prize Comics, the series is jumping straight to Volume 3, which collects the very appropriate issues #1-5 of Frankenstein, 64-pages each, from 1945 and 1946. An excellent place to begin!
Slapstick stories include "Frankenstein's Creation," "Frankenstein's Wife," "The Mananimals," "How I Rehabilitated Maladjusted Ghosts" (Issue #5 is narrated entirely in the first person by Frank himself!), "How I Became a Genii in a Bottle," "Awful Annie," "The Terrible Werewolf," "The Time Machine," "Frankenstein's Ark," and many, many more.
Roy Thomas introduces this volume, then turns over the reins to renowned horror writer Don Glut, who provides a wide-ranging, illustrated preface that looks at the many manifestations of Frankenstein in comic books and films. Since he was first created in the early 1800s, the character was in public domain. Thus, anyone could (and did) come up with their own take on the character, from Classics Illustrated, to appearances as bad guys in Golden Age titles like Marvel's The Blonde Phantom, DC's Batman, and as an entire series, in issues #5-12, of ACG's Adventures Into the Unknown.
