Summary
Dr. Frankenstein learns the secret to giving life to inanimate matter. To test his theories, he collects bones from the tombs to construct a "human" being and then gives it life. The creature, endowed with supernatural size and strength, is revolting to look at, and frightens all who see it. Lonely and miserable, it comes to hate its creator. This tale of terror has been a world favorite since it was first published in 1818. Mary Shelley's original novel is not only a masterwork of horror, but it's also considered to be one of the earliest science fiction stories ever written. Beautifully illustrated, this classic, comic graphic novel captures the imagination of readers of all ages
