And to learn more about Frankensteinfilms.com and the Frankenstein myth read our 
MONSTER-SIZE HULK # 1, just recently published by Marvel features a stunning short story, in which Hulk Bruce Banner helps Victoria Frankenstein to re-awaken her grandfather's monster. "It's alive! Alive!!!" features artwork by Gabriel Hardman and draws obvious parallels between the Frankenstein monster and Hulk.

Burlyman Entertainment, the Wachowski Brothers' publishing house, has recently published the 6th issue in its ongoing DOC FRANKENSTEIN series, written by Andy and Larry Wachowski and beautifully drawn by Steve Skroce, which sees the Frankenstein monster battle Wild West werewolves, the Nazis, Yetis and the Vatican. An absolut must-read, it is just a pity that new issues are published on an irregular basis.

Frankenstein movie news

Frankenstein DVD news

The recent wave of ultra-gory Japanese low-budget splatterfests has spawned VAMIRE GIRL VS FRANKENSTEIN GIRL, a blood-drenched flick about teenage girls with superpowers. One of them is a vamire, the other is a Frankenstein-like creature and both are in love with the same boy. The ensuing mayhem, based on a manga, will surely delight fans of Japanese trash. Mary Shelley, however, would surely not approve of such a subtle adaptation of her classic novel. This masterpiece was released on UK R2 DVD on 15 March 2010 by AriasUK. Enjoy the trailer on youtube.com

In other movie news it seems as if Universal are getting a remake/reboot of BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN ready. It is set to be directed by Neil Burger, writer and director of The Illusionist. Obviously Universal Studios once again are trying to milk their old franchises, since a Wolf Man remake starring Benicio del Toro is already finished.

Someone had the glorious idea to make a movie about IGOR, Frankenstein's lab assistant, who was first featured alongside Boris Karloff in James Whale's 1931 Frankenstein (where he was called Fritz).
Director Anthony Leondis has produced an animated family feature centering on an Igor who wants to create his own evil monster instead of assisting another mad scientist.
Distributed by the Weinstein Company and featuring the voice talents of John Cusack, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese and Christian Slater, IGOR is out on DVD now.
In the meantime you can watch the trailer on the official IGOR website.

In director Blaxwell Smart's FRANKENHOOD a reanimated African-American corpse supports the local posse on their way into a street basketball tournament. Apart from the fact that a corpse is reanimated, FRANKENHOOD bares no resemblance with Shelley's novel or any other Frnakenstein movie. The R1 DVD was released on May 5, 2009.

Finally Marvel has done fans of their 1970s comic books a big favour by releasing a paperback collecting all issues of THE MONSTER OF FRANKENSTEIN. Additionally, the collection includes all appearances of the monster in Monsters Unleashed and Giant-Sized Werewolf. So, read our extensive review of this groundbreaking comic book series and then get the 496 pages of this horror classic. The only downside of ESSENTIAL MONSTER OF FRANKENSTEIN VOL.1 is that the collection is in black and white only, whereas the original comic books were in full color.
