Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

Dean Koontz's Frankenstein, Volume 1: Prodigal Son - Chuck Dixon, Brett Booth I had heard of the book (the novel this is based on), but I did not give it much thought, figuring it was just another Frankenstein remake or such. I picked up the graphic novel on a whim, and I am glad I did. This is not just a remake, but a very thoughtful look at the classic in a new way. It is framed as a mystery/detective story, but it has a lot more. Who are the detectives really chasing? The homicidal serial killer, or the doctor who made him? And what does Deucalion, the mysterious tattooed man with a long past have to do with everything? This book is engaging. It catches you from the start, and it does not let go. I read this in one sitting. I have not found the second part yet, but I will certainly pick it up when I do. Definitely a very good graphic novel. Who knows? I may go back and pick up the novel as well.
