Dick Breifer's Frankenstein by Craig Yoe is both a critical look at the comics series which went thru a radical shift in tone from it's inception in Prize Comics to it's own title.
This large-format book lovingly reproduces a (dare we say?) monstrous number of stories from the original 1940s and '50s comic books, supplemented by an insightful introduction with rare photos of the artist, original art, letters from Dick Briefer, drawings by Alex Toth inspired by Briefer's Frankenstein-and much more!
Interestingly, the book was originally going to have a cover featuring the earlier humorous version of the character...
We recently covered the character's comics run on this blog.
And, we love Briefer's work so much, we've given it major play at Atomic Kommie Comics™!
He has his own section in Lost Heroes of the Golden Age of Comics™ with a plethora of goodies including a 12-Month Calendar (which includes a dozen covers from both the humorous and horror incarnations of the comic), t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, iPad/messenger bags and much more!
