The first volume in Yoe Book’s thrilling new series, “The Masters of Horror Comic Book Library,” fittingly features the first and foremost maniacal monster of all time… Frankenstein! Dick Briefer is one of the seminal artists who worked with Will Eisner on some of the very first comic books. If you like the comic-book weirdness of cartoonists Fletcher Hanks, Basil Wolverton, and Boody Rogers, you’re sure to thrill over Dick Briefer’s creation of Frankenstein. The large-format book lovingly reproduces a monstrous number of stories from the original 1940s and ’50s comic books. The stories are fascinatingly 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!
