Q&A with Gris Grimly about his graphic novel Frankenstein

by Rachel Baker on August 23, 2013

There’s a good interview over at Publisher’s Weekly with Gris Grimly who has done the illustrations for Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

The illustrations for Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein by Mary Shelley took so long to do and were so tantalizing a prospect for his fans that Grimly blogged the whole project, faithfully posting new artwork every week and confessing to frustration when the going got rough. It was an open-hearted gesture for an artist whose mysterious pen name and edgy horror-punk projects have in the past kept admirers at a distance.

According to the Amazon Page: Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein is a twisted, fresh, and utterly original full-length, full-color graphic-novel adaptation of Mary Shelley’s original text, brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Gris Grimly.

This is the first fully illustrated version to use the original 1818 text and is destined to capture the imagination of those new to the story as well as those who know it well.

New York Times bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly has long considered Frankenstein to be one of his chief inspirations. From the bones and flesh of the original, he has cut and stitched Mary Shelley’s text to his own artwork, creating something entirely new: a stunningly original remix, both classic and contemporary, sinister and seductive, heart-stopping and heartbreaking.

Perfect for fans of Edgar Allan Poe and Neil Gaiman’s Coraline.

Gris Grimly’s Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is available on August 27, 2013; and is available for Pre-Order now.
