A twisted, fresh, and utterly original graphic adaptation of the classic work of gothic horror, brought to life by none other than gothic horror's modern master: Gris Grimly. You know the story, but you've never seen it like this! Gris Grimly has long considered Mary Shelley's classic tale of terror to be one of his greatest inspirations. Using an abridged version of the original text, Gris adorns each page with illustrations, creating a world inside a book that is part graphic novel, part prose novel, and all vintage Gris Grimly. The result is a version of the tale unlike any that has ever been seen before, on the page or in the theater -- a frightfully fresh version of the tale that is at once classic and contemporary, and one that could only be experienced in this form.
