Frankenstein - Collected Works
Writer/Artist Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein for Prize Comics is widely regarded as being America’s first ongoing horror series. Indeed, it was Briefer’s work that probably caused the creature to be actually named as Frankenstein instead of the nameless monstrosity from Shelley’s novel. Splitting the stories between two stools—humor and horror—Briefer’s tales are absorbing and unsettling in equal parts. Some of the humorous material has already been reprinted, though not necessarily in order nor in total. Until now, of course!

Frankenstein - Volume Three

Slipcase Edition

It turns out that some of the early issues of Dick Briefer's wonderful creation are harder to find than a perfectly square piece of sand on your local beach. And then some. In addition to our resident Skip Tracer, Roy 'Bring 'em back alive Thomas, we've had lots of fantastic helpers looking for issues of Prize Comics containing the start of the Briefer run but, so far, with only limited success. So we figured, instead of holding up the proceedings, we'd start out with volume 3 which contains issues 1 through 5 of the actual Frankenstein book..

Collects issues 1-5 (1945 and November / December) of the original titles from Prize Comics.

Frankenstein - Volumes 1 & 2

WE NEED YOUR HELP IN COMPLETING THESE VOLUMES...

It turns out that some of the early issues of Dick Briefer's wonderful creation are harder to find than a perfectly square piece of sand on your local beach. And then some. In addition to our resident Skip Tracer, Roy 'Bring 'em back alive Thomas, we've had lots of fantastic helpers looking for issues of Prize Comics containing the start of the Briefer run but, so far, with only limited success. So we figured, instead of holding up the proceedings, we'd start out with volume 3 which contains issues 1 through 5 of the actual Frankenstein book. The earlier yarns for Volumes 1 and 2 will come along as soon as we get our greasy mitts on 'em.
