By far, the most successful Frankenstein of the comics was Prize Publications' version, created by Dick Briefer! Sometimes he was portrayed as a serious monster, and sometimes he was played for laughs (not at the same time, mind you!). I think it started out seriously, and then went to humor, and then back to horror again.
The best coverage of Dick Briefer's Frankenstein was a chapter in "The Great Comic-Book Book," which you can order below:
I'll be featuring more of this version of Frankenstein here and there in the future!
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.

I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
