Wrightson & Niles’ FRANKENSTEIN ALIVE, ALIVE! Nears Completion

The final chapter looms.

Bernie Wrightson’s last Frankenstein project was a painstaking labor of love.

Frankenstein Alive, Alive! — a four-issue series from IDW written with collaborator Steve Niles — started in 2012 but was never completed due to Wrightson’s ill health. Before his death, however, Wrightson hand-picked Kelley Jones to finish the art. That issue is almost here: Alive, Alive! #4 is scheduled for a 3/4 release and we’ll have more on that down the line.

But it’s been about four years since the previous installment came out, so IDW has put together Frankenstein Alive, Alive! Trio to get you up to speed. It collects the first three issues and is available 1/24.

Just check out Wrighton’s brilliance in this sequel to his 1983 Marvel masterpiece adapting Mary Shelley’s classic novel:

Frankenstein Alive, Alive! Trio is 64 pages and lists for $7.99. It’s due 1/24.
