IDW Publishing has announced an all-new horror series with acclaimed creators Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson. Frankenstein Alive, Alive will launch in 2012, picking up right where Mary Shelley’s classic tale ends.
“This is an idea that’s been rattling around somewhere in the back of my mind for a good many years,” said Wrightson. “I mentioned it to Steve, and we started talking. In about two minutes I realized that not only were we on the same page, we shared a vision. I’m very excited to see this finally happening. It’s going to be lot of fun.”
A lifelong Frankenstein fan, Wrightson’s work on this monster has garnered universal praise for over 25 years. Now, Wrightson and Niles are collaborating on the next chapter in the life of Frankenstein’s monster. Frankenstein Alive, Alive turns this classic tale around by telling the story from Frankenstein’s perspective in this 13-issue series.
“The fact that I grew up worshipping Wrightson’s Frankenstein and now I’m working on a sequel with him is mind-blowing,” said Niles. “This is the project of a lifetime for me.”
