Book Review: Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein > Craig Yoe
Be afraid. BE VERY… AFRAID!
Then… just turn the page and be hysterical. That is the magic of Craig Yoe’s latest classic comics book. A 148-page compilation of the incredible, Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein, horror and humor extravaganza! And just in time for Halloween!!!
I can’t remember where I first saw Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein. Definitely on a comics blog, though. I was an instant fan. Dick Briefer’s wonderfully loose brush work reminded me of George Lichty. Briefer also has a wonderful cast of supporting characters and a knack for expressions that fill them with instant personality. I was hooked. I had to have more and scoured the internet for more examples of Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein. Like this one.
Now like any good monster should, Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein has his dark side and Craig Yoe makes sure to give you a generous helping of both sides of Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein. But for me, I LOVE Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein’s lighter side.
Now, in typical Craig Yoe fashion, he has asked a number of his fellow comic bloggers to participate in this Frightful Frankenstein Friday! So now you, fortunate reader, have the luxury of reading more of Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein without having to google search. Check the links below for more great stories from both sides of that lovable zipper-neck, Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein!
