Reading Room: CLASSIC COMICS Frankenstein Conclusion

Original art for the cover by Norm Saunders
Victor Frankenstein is insane!
With his wife strangled by his own creation and his father dead from shock, the scientist collapses from exhaustion and is placed in an asylum.
This adaptation was a change of pace for writer Ruth Roche, who served as an editor for the Iger Comics Studios and Ajax/Farrell Comics as well as (probably) writing almost all the Fox-Ajax/Farrell Phantom Lady stories during the Golden Age.
She also penned the Classics Comics version of Lorna Doone.

As a bonus, here's a bio about the novel's author...

For a double-dose of classic horror check out Atomic Kommie Comics™, where we're presenting the first comic adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula!
