  1. Hello Callum. I enjoyed Frankenstein very much and pictures out of it are still in my head although it’s a long time since I read it. I can see the monster lumbering through snow. As for Poe – The Tell-tale Heart gave me sleepless nights for a long time!

  2. Frankenstein seems like it would lend itself well to a visual medium like this. And this is a good reminder that I need to read more of Poe. He’s one of those authors who I know a lot about and know the stories but have actual read very little of.

  4. Great reviews! Always nice to see fresh adaptations with the power to bring new life (or at least new audiences) to the classics- these both look like good places for new readers to start with Poe or Shelley, and still a fun read for those already familiar. I’ve not yet read any graphic novel classics but would love to give it a go at some point!

    • Thank you! Yeah, I think adaptations like these definitely make the classics feel less daunting for some people, which is great. The publisher that worked on the Frankenstein one has done quite a few others so I’ll definitely be checking out more of them at some point 😊
