There have been many monsters in fiction but none has grabbed the public's attention like the character of Frankenstein. The classic tale of a creature brought to life by a mad scientist has chilled every generation since it was first put into print by Mary Shelley in 1818.
The classic Boris Karloff role.
Eventually every literarary classic makes it into the comic books.

As if one freak wasn't enough.
Frankie makes another cover.
Marvel's take on the Frankenstein franchise.

The transformation is complete. The once fearful ceature is now a comic book superhero.
