Warren Ellis has masterfully created graphic novels from every genre. But in perhaps one of his most under appreciated visions he delivers a stark horror masterpiece that invokes the very best of Gothic storytelling. Frankenstein’s Womb returns to 1816 where a young Marry Wollstonecraft Godwin encounters a mysteriously disfigured man in the abandoned Castle Frankenstein.
What follows is a brilliant ghost story that creates comparisons between the birth of a literary giant and an unearthly abomination. This is Ellis at his best deconstructing and building mythos on every page. For the fan of Penny Dreadful and Hammer Horror, this is a must read. And for the Ellis enthusiast, it is like finding a long lost manuscript that has never been appreciated. You can master the horror at your local comic shop or on Amazon today with Frankenstein’s Womb GN.
