Need more Wrightson? From IDW Publishing, check out Bernie’s latest comic book series collaboration with Steve Niles entitled Dead, She Said. Synopsis: Detective Coogan knows well that there are some pretty shady freaks out there in the big city… but he doesn’t know that some of those freaks ain’t human. Issue #1 is out now and so far it’s off to a great gory start!

BERNIE'S FRANKENSTEIN IS A TRUE CLASSIC, ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS IN MY ENTIRE COLLECTION.

I'LL DEFINITELY CHECK OUT THESE OTHER RELEASES TOO.......... BECOMING A FAN OF NILES RECENTLY WITH THE CAL MCDONALD COMICS AND 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, GREAT STUFF!

I like Niles alot too, he adds a great sense of hardboiled noir to the horror which you don't see alot of these days. I will say though that his stuff does seem to kind of be the same-ish occasionally, but at least it's all consistantly entertaining. His re-invention of DC's The Creeper a few years ago was pretty good too.

I actually bought the Wrightson Frankenstein from my comic shop when it came out first run.
