Introduces young adult readers to a literary classic  Nov 7, 2004
Getting young adult readers to pick up a literary classic like Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" is a hard call these days. Give them a book like Steve Nile's "Wake the Dead" and you won't get it back off them.

Steve Niles modernizes the tale, and the artwork in this graphic novel is suprerb. It brings to life all the horrific and gory details of assembling a human body from evicerated car crash victims. Though the concept isn't new (it wasn't even in Mary Shelley's day, with the concept of a golem pre-dating her work) it does bring the story to life for a modern audience.
Rehash  Nov 1, 2004
This is little more than a transplantation of the original Frankenstein to a modern setting. It moves way too fast; no time is spent on narrative or character development. It really adds nothing to Mary Shelley's work, and is deeply lacking in comparison.
I am becoming a fan of Steve Niles. "30 Days of Night" and his adaptation of "I Am Legend" were inspired; this is a big step backwards for him.

The art is competent, but it adopts the convention that human flesh is apparently a soft clay that shreds at the slightest trauma. Teeth have a very hard time staying in place, as they also seem eager to pop out. The art nearly made me nauseous; I suppose some people will take that as an endorsement.

I recently heard someone say that body without soul does not equal life. This story reanimates the body of Shelley's classic novel, but it possesses none of its soul.
