'CREEPY COMIX' - 'Frankie Stein' Frankenstein


For your viewing pleasure here is a great peice of art from the popular comicstrip 'Frankie Stein', this image is almost on first viewing gives a look of a peice of art from a serious comicstrip, very filmic Frankenstein inspired. These panals are from 'Whoopee and Shiver and Shake' 12th October 1974.

Wow! That's a really great find and looks like Nixon at his best in black and white.

I think it's probably an improvement on the original version but perhaps that's something best left to the beholder:

I only heard about Ken Reid's role long after I'd stopped reading the comics.

They were both modern Masters!!!

Nixon's art on Frankie Stein is neat and tell's the story and l like it...but it has sanitised and Disneyfied Ken's Kreation.
