*** I finally found this graphic novel in my library on digital format and it is still a really great graphic novel! Review To Come Soon! ***

I had read Volume One of the graphic novels, but overlooked Volume Two when it was originally published. There are some different artist working on the two projects and thus some different styles in the two books. Overall, this is an enjoyable re-telling. I especially like that Michael is showcased wearing different Hawaiian Shirts, as depicted in Dean's writing.

Here are some favorite phrases:
Monsters among us, masquerading as people - it's the oldest paranoia.

an audio version of what was [is] a graphic novel - i didn't know! also - book 2 -- not having read the first! oh well - it was OK - current day New Orleans - the Monster is still alive - and so is his maker - and the Good Doctor is making thousands of freaky double hearted super beings to infiltrate humanity and take over. add a detective duo with a murder mystery and it is messy -

This book is just even better than the last, what a great story and a wonderful way of telling it.

Much better than the first book, which is not difficult, but it still suffers from a number of problems. If you have time to kill, and don’t hate yourself too much after reading the first book to continue with the story, it won’t be as much of a disappointment.

The story came out a great deal more believable, with a number of good characterizations of supporting characters. The main characters fleshed out more, and it became less stilted from pointless exhaustive monologues about greater beings a

I've read tons of Dean Koontz books through the years, but so far, I've only the 1st the book in his Frankenstein series. I had no idea that there were graphic novel adaptations to the that book I've read until I just happened to stumble upon the first graphic in a used book store over a year ago. I kept looking for another book in the series, but never could find one anywhere. The last time I got a $5 gift card for Amazon, I looked around on there and found this book for a penny + shipping & ...more

Well, it was okay, but I kind of have to wonder at the artists' attentiveness. Specifically, their attentiveness to what the text is actually saying. For example, in one scene a character makes specific reference to the fact that there are no books in the room; but what do we see in that very same panel, peeking up out of the corner like a mischievous child ready to refute those same words? A bookshelf! With books on it! Admittedly, it's only two shelves high--but those are two shelves packed f ...more

I'm not normally one to go for graphic novels, but I saw this one posted on Net Galley and it caught my attention. This upcoming release is the second installment in Koontz' Frankenstein series, which I didn't realize at first. Even though I haven't read the rest of the series, I was instantly drawn (no pun intended) into the story. It read like a great novel and had the illustrations that add to the story.

Having been my first exposure to graphic novels, I didn't know exactly what to expect. I r

Well, I am still quite intrigued with the story, but when I first opened the book, I wasn't even sure it was the second volume because everything had changed so much. New characters, new focus, and it didn't look quite right. Now you just don't go changing artists on a girl, especially when the artist was Brett Booth!! Oh well, that's the industry. Eventually the old characters resurfaced and it started to make sense and no disrespect to Brett Booth, I'll definitely be looking out for Volume 3.

Frankenstein’s monster is a changed man, he is trying to save us from his evil maker, Victor, in New Orleans, raising up new fledglings. Victor made himself a women to please himself, Erika. There is a creepy hand wondering around leading to a horrifying spectacular find. There is unrest in the Doctors lab. The doctor is a monster and the monster is a ?
Beautiful drawings and coloring. The detail the artist put into the work is amazing. New Orleans character comes alive.

I liked the Koontz twist on the classic tale of Frankenstein. The artwork was powerful, beautiful, and so inspiring. If I could draw a graphic novel that awesome, I'd be truly amazed. How does an ordinary Schmoe like me make something that cool? Oh Lord, please guide my hands and imagination to bear witness to your love. #one

Though I enjoy Dean Koontz's novels, I think they're not good materials for a comic. They don't fit at all because they are too complex. The comic version lacks of clarity and seems very confused.
I'm rather disappointed.

The chapter book is better. It's either the wrong person wrote this comic or it shouldn't have been made.

I love the way Koontz tells a story. He can really paint a scene and a character. This new Frankenstein is fantastic.
