*"Frankenstein: The Graphic Novel: Quick Text." ISBN 978-1-906332-50-1.
*"Frankenstein: The Graphic Novel: Original Text." ISBN 978-1-906332-49-5.
illus. by Declan Shalvey.
While remaining true to the spirit of Shelley's famous work, this adaptation allows readers to have it their way, savoring this horror classic with either the "Original Text," or the "Quick Text," a simplified abridgement. More than a straightforward retelling, this edition invites readers to explore important social issues such as alienation, the consequences and ethics of scientific studies, as well as the nature of creation and destruction. Rich and lustrous artwork remains the same in both versions. Bucolic mountainsides and charming villages are rendered in a classical European painting style. In stark contrast, horrific elements are depicted with grotesque angular figures in monochromatic tones. Excellent lettering enhances the narrative without distracting from the images. An especially nice feat

An especially nice feature is the use of boldface to highlight key words and phrases. A table of contents, based on the original three-volume edition, helps readers follow the story's progression. Back matter includes a biography of Shelley, a description of the novel's origin and history, and a clear description of comic-page creation for this remarkable edition. Reluctant readers who start with the "Quick Text" will probably be enticed to try the "Original Text" and continue to explore this exquisite rendition of a gothic classic.

Buchbeschreibung Classical Comics, Singapore, 2011. Hardback. Zustand: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. Conceived by Mary Shelley (wife of the famous poet Percy Shelley) on the banks of Lake Geneva in 1816, Frankenstein is today regarded as a classic piece of 19th century literature. The book includes an illustrated Character List (like a Dramatis Personae), 124 pages of story artwork, and fascinating support material that details the remarkable and tragic life of Mary Shelley - all beautifully presented in color. Designed to encourage readers to enjoy classical literature, titles in the Classical Comics range stay true to the original vision of the authors.This title has been moderately and sympathetically abridged from the original text to fit within the graphic novel format. Despite that, all of the events of the book are represented, and all the captions and dialogue is taken from teh Shelley original prose novel. The story begins with the journey of an adventurer, Robert Walton, who stumbles across a man in trouble at the North Pole, saving his life. That man is Victor Frankenstein, who tells Walton all about his experiments with the creation of life and how he came to be at the North Pole in the first place. Through this plot structure, Mary Shelley was able to deal with serious real-world issues, such as the need for acceptance, tolerance, and understanding despite differences, as well as the need for companionship and love among our basic human needs. The novel was of course, the inspiration and basis for the classic Boris Karloff movies, and more recently, the Frankenstein novels by Dean Koontz - however this Classical Comics publication, like all of their titles, remains true to the original novel. Frankenstein is one of Classical Comics best selling titles, and now this edition presents it into a library binding. To support the use of this title in the classroom, photocopiable teachers resources are available that offer lesson plans and activities from 6th grade and up: ISBN 978-1-906332-56-3.
