While Hollywood sits on its hands and continues to contemplate whether or not to give Dean Koontz’s fan favorite “FRANKENSTEIN” the big screen treatment, Chuck Dixon and the gang over at Dynamite Publishing are hard at work on the next installment of the illustrated adaptation of the novels with the second volume slated to drop this July. The title will mark the second arc in the series, and boasts some serious star power as it features art from none other than “HACK/SLASH” creator and “WILD CATS” artist, Tim Seeley. Inside you can find all the details on the project as well as a first look at the cover. Read on for the skinny. “Set in present day New Orleans, the series follows the activities of Victor Frankenstein, now known as Helios, as he continues to create new life forms for his own purposes. Opposed to his activities are a pair of homicide detectives and Frankenstein’s original monster, now known as Deucalion.”
“Dean Koontz’s hit series returns! Detectives O’Conner and Maddison delve deeper into the mysterious life of Victor Helios, trying to uncover his ultimate goal, while members of Victor’s “New Race” begin to show they are not as perfect as he assumed. Randall Six continues his quest to escape from Hands of Mercy, as Officer Harker descends further into madness. And Erika Helios discovers some of her husbands’ unfinished creations.”
