BERNIE WRIGHTSONS ILLUSTRATED FRANKENSTEIN.
By Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.
Introduction by Stephen King.
Again in an Exclusive Hardcover !
OVERVIEW: Few works by comic-book artists have earned the universal acclaim and reverence that Bernie Wrightsons illustrated version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelleys Frankenstein was met with upon its original release in 1983. Twenty-five years later, this magnificent pairing of art and literature is still considered to be one of the greatest achievements made by any artist in the field.
Now, Wrightson and Dark Horse Books have collaborated on a beautiful new hardcover edition of the book, published in a larger 9 x 12 format intended to show off the exquisitely detailed line art of one of the greatest living artists in comics today. This book includes the complete text of the original groundbreaking novel, and the original forty-seven full-page illustrations that stunned the world with their monumental beauty and uniqueness.
FYI: For Stephen King it was this book that aroused his interest in Wrightson becoming the artist for THE STANDs updated edition. A beautiful work and if youve never seen it before, a rare opportunity to own a distingishing volume of the story and art.
