This title originally started off as "The Monster of Frankenstein," and then renamed to this, although I believe the entire run of the comic, the indicia referred to it simply as "Frankenstein." Here's issue 16, by which time the Monster was brought to the present!
This title was one of Marvel's reprint comic books by this point, reprinting stories from their 1950 monster books... I believe this predated their Frankenstein series. If I recall correctly, this story had an interesting take on the Frankenstein lecture, but I won't spoil it for you here!
Marvel Comics already had their own Frankenstein Monster comic series, but when they started producing Marvel Classic Comics (a modern-day version of "Classics Illustrated"), they decided to cover Frankenstein there, too!
I told you Dell turned the Monster into a Superhero! Here's issues 2, 3 and 4 of the title (issue 1 was the comic I showed you yesterday, even though it wasn't issue #1 of any title... there was a fifth issue, I believe, but it just reprinted issue 2).
This is a nifty game that happen to own myself, although I have yet to play it... basically, as you play it, the Monster gets constructed, and the players can send the Monster after the others... or something like that!
Well, that's one year down... care to place bets on how many years I can keep this blog up? I'm guessing at least another year and a half before I possibly start running short on items to post, but we'll see!
The item you see in the second photo above was a greeting card/record combo item, and I don't know if it would have a specific name on the record or not. Wish someone would rip these (for there were a couple different ones) and post them online somewhere!
The Blog of Frankenstein is your daily destination for vintage Frankenstein-related goodies, including posters, lobby cards, stills, toys, and other coolness! And yes, I know that Frankenstein was the doctor, and not the monster... but the term has become such common use thanks to toys and the like over the years that I don't have a problem sometimes using "Frankenstein" to refer to the monster.
