May 2 Wednesday May 9th, 2012 from 4:00 – 7:00pm!
Wrightson’s illustrated version of Mary Shelley’s novel first chilled us in 1983. Now he’s returning to Frankenstein along with frequent collaborator and fellow horror master Steve Niles. We’re anxious to see Wrightson once again illustrate the troubled creation in his engraving-like style.
