Dick Briefer's Frankenstein

When I was a teenager a few decades back there were two non-superhero comics I fell head over heels for as soon as I stumbled upon an issue of each. One was Sheldon Mayer's Scribbly (for which I still hold out hope that there will be a collected Archive Edition) and the other was Dick Briefer's Frankenstein. Both of these titles consist of unabashed and unadulterated FUN.

A couple of years back there was a Craig Yoe hardcover of the Briefer Frankensteins but it was a random selection of stories, not what an archivist is really looking for. Hats off to Dark Horse Comics for upping the ante and publishing a volume collecting the entirety of the first six issues of Mr. Briefer's Frankenstein as originally published by Prize Comics in the mid-1940s.

If you like fun comics but are unfamiliar with this series, you are in for a treat when you get this great book!
