Previews pluk for januar 2015

Jeg skal nok lade være med at skælde ud på DC i denne måned, det kan også blive for trivielt, og de kommer forhåbentlig på bedre tanker, hvad angår deres bagkatalog, som nu er slemt forsømt. I stedet vil jeg rette blikket mod USA’s første horror serie fra Prize Comics #7, december 1940, “Frankenstein”, af Dick Briefer, en af giganterne i Golden Age. Der har været adskillige genoptryk af hans hhv. big foot og realistiske skræk serie med “Monstret”, som Shelley selvfølgelig aldrig navngav “Frankenstein”, det var jo den gale videnskabsmand Victor Frankenstein, som ønskede at skabe et levende menneske af døde. Der har i nyere tid både været genoptryk i sh hæfter, tp’er, og siden også hc’er. Idea Men Productions var ude med en tp helt tilbage i 2006, og sidenhen fik vi Craig Yoe’s flotte antologi i Library of Horror Comics fra IDW, samt et forsøg på at udgive den samlede serie i hc’er på PS Artbooks. Sidstnævnte har dog ikke haft held med at fremskaffe de første hæfter i Prize Comics serien, og derfor er deres første to bind i serien endnu ikke udkommet. Det råder de driftige folk på Dark Horse nu bod på, med en fed hc med de tissesjældne første hæfter i Prize Comics!

It turns out that some of the early issues of Dick Briefer’s wonderful creation are harder to find than a perfectly square piece of sand on your local beach. And then some. In addition to our resident Skip Tracer, Roy ‘Bring ’em back alive Thomas, we’ve had lots of fantastic helpers looking for issues of Prize Comics containing the start of the Briefer run but, so far, with only limited success. So we figured, instead of holding up the proceedings, we’d start out with volume 3 which contains issues 1 through 5 of the actual Frankenstein book. The earlier yarns for volumes 1 and 2 will come along as soon we get our greasy mitts on ’em.

amazon.com review:

It’s alive! It’s alive! Not exactly what Mary Shelley had in mind, Frankenstein: The Mad Science of Dick Briefer reanimates the most unusual Frankenstein take of all. What began as a horror feature in 1940s Prize Comics morphed after World War II into a comedic tale of a Frankenstein “who, like Fernando the Bull, would rather pluck flowers than pluck off people’s heads.” Briefer’s Frankenstein mixes screwball comedy with canny observation of postwar America into a creation that would shock the original monster senseless!
