Dean Koontz' Frankenstein : Prodigal Son
Release Date 31st May 2011
I've read the books, except the last one, and I love that this series is getting adapted to a comic. I'm not actually a huge Dean Koontz fan but I really liked his take on the Frankenstein legend. The artwork is good, if a little square for my liking. I think they've done well with the imagery of Deucalion, he's big and scary looking, just like the illustator has drawn.
I'm not normally a big comic or graphic novel reader but there are a lot of books being adapted to comics. Is this the new in thing? To be fair, they'll work better than a movie adaptation, which normally upset me. At least there's no casting to be done that can ruin your perception.
I haven't read the book in a while but this had put me in the mood to start the series anew and, hopefully, get the new one while I'm at it.
