    • This volume is a very interesting collection of Golden Age Horror comics, specifically the Frankenstein series by Dick Briefer. You also get to see the evolution of an artist in Dick Briefer. Basically the story starts out as a horror comic featuring Frankenstein. Not an accurate retelling of the Mary Shelley story, but a new origin for the character. Then you see the comic shift to a humor comic, and Briefer switches his art style to a more fitting style for the new funny tales. Then, you see t [...]


    • (and ) have the various collections of Briefer's Frankenstein work listed as different editions of the same book but they are not and each is a very different collection. So for each review I'm dropping in this note which will hopefully help folksIS VOLUME is IDW's The Chilling Archive of Horror Comics: Dick Briefer's Frankenstein gives the best over view of Briefer's humorous and horrific takes on the Monster, with selections of both. All selections are in color, printed on flat comic paper. Fe [...]


    • Continuing the early 21st century trend of repackaging largely forgotten comic book classics in affordable handsome editions, historian Craig Yoe re-introduces Dick Briefer's horror-cum-comedy-cum-horror-again Frankenstein. Briefer's tale of a monster's revenge against his maker initially appeared in Prize #7 (1940), spawning the first ongoing series of horror comics. This incarnation of Shelley's creation proved to be very popular, largely thanks to Briefer's intelligent scripts and ghastly ill [...]


    • Briefer had an ongoing relationship with the Frankenstein creature across his career. This volume selecte stories from three distinct periods--if you dind't know it was all one guy, you'd swear each set of stories was by different hands. The earliest stories are relatively crude and follow most closely (which still isn't very closely) the Frankenstein mythos. They're fiarly macabre horror, with an ongoing motif of the creature committing evil acts to torture Frankenstein. The second phase offers [...]


    • Before horror comics were banned in the mid-1950's, Richard (Dick) Briefer produced the first continuing series of horror comics based on Frankenstein's monster. Sometimes horrific and sometimes comedic, both versions of Briefer's incarnation are brilliant and memorable. The introduction provides an informative overview of the life of a master craftsman and his work and then the rest of the book reprints a selection of tales that appeared in various issues of Prize Comics and Frankenstein, datin [...]


    • This is a great collection of comics featuring the Frankenstein monster, written and drawn by Dick Briefer and originally published in the 1940s and 1950s.Briefer took different approaches to the monster at various times in his career. The earliest comics are played straight story-wise, yet have touches of humor plus cartoonish looking artwork. The middle period is played strictly as comedy and I must admit this is my favorite period; Briefer came up with some wonderfully goofy stories!The last [...]


    • The three star review is me being generous, but I don't know how to give two and a half. Editor Craig Yoe claims these are the best of Dick Briefer's Frankenstein stories. They are not. The best are all in the first 17 (I think) issues of his own title when Briefer make the character a wacky innocent trying to have a good life. These stories are just wonderful. I can well understand why it was hard to resist reprinting the first story, the origin story, from the early horror period of the charac [...]


    • Great compilation of Forties and Fifties comics, the Frankenstein legend told with more gusto and verve than anyone by Dick Briefer. There are three different incarnations of The Monster told here: the first where Dr. Frankenstein hunts his creature through the streets of Manhattan, one showdown taking place at The Statue of Liberty and one in Coney Island! The second version is a Jack Cole-styled wacky version, unanimously touted as the best and most original, and the third as an EC-comics styl [...]


    • Craig Yoe does it again! A great sampling of Dick Briefer's fantastic Golden Age comic book tales of Frankenstein (focus on the monster's adventures) from the gruesome early 40's version, to the kid friendly funny version, and then back again to the vicious horrors of the later 50's version. Gorgeously designed with eyes cut out of the cover and doubling as a mask. A highly recommended introduction to Frankenstein, Dick Briefer (and even Craig Yoe) for those who could somehow still remain unawar [...]


    • This book was too short for me, but everything that was in it was perfect, it just left me wanting more. Collecting some of Briefer's best Frankenstein strips from the 40's & 50's. Full color and including both the horror strips and comedy strips. I wish they would have reproduced the covers as well though. I grew up reading Dick Briefer's Frankenstein from a few old comics and the strips that ran in Cracked Magazine. It had an influence on me. I think every drawing I ever did of Frankenstei [...]


    • There are two types of stories in here. Some of the issues are played for laughs and some are played for scares. Briefer's writing for both works pretty well, as does his art. When he transitions from horror to comedy and back again, Frankenstein's body structure and face change to fit the mood. Much more enjoyable than I expected.
