Mary Shelley’s compelling story of a scientist horrified by his own creation—and the monster’s revenge—is now vividly illustrated and faithfully retold in graphic-novel form!
Stunned by his mother’s tragic death, Victor Frankenstein becomes obsessed with discovering the deepest mysteries of creation—and the secret of bringing dead matter to life. Gathering materials from graveyards and slaughterhouses, he successfully fashions a giant of superhuman strength. But, horrified at the monster he has brought into existence, he flees, leaving it to fend for itself. How will the creature react to being abandoned by its creator? Mary Shelley's groundbreaking horror story will captivate readers in this spectacular graphic-novel retelling.
In addition to the novel, this edition includes a biography of Mary Shelley, scientific discoveries at the time the original novel was written, a listing of Frankenstein movies, and footnotes to explain difficult words and ideas.

Fiona Macdonald studied history at Cambridge University and at the University of East Anglia in England. She has taught in schools and colleges and has written numerous books for children, including others in the Graffex series.
Penko Gelev graduated from the National Art School in Sofia, Bulgaria. He is a film and children’s television producer, and also finds time to draw comics and illustrations.
