THE START OF A UNIQUE KING RELEASE.
It's because of this edition that Stephen King comissioned Bernie Wrightson to produce the unique artwork that was featured in the 1990 edition of THE STAND: COMPLETE AND UNCUT.
Few works by comic book artists have earned the universal acclaim and reverence that Bernie Wrightson’s illustrated version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein was met with upon its original release in 1983. A generation later, this magnificent pairing of art and literature is still considered to be one of the greatest achievements made by any artist in the field. This book includes the complete text of the original groundbreaking novel, and approximately fifty original full-page illustrations by Bernie Wrightson—created over a period of seven years—that continue to stun the world with their monumental beauty and uniqueness.
