Frankenstein’s monster through the ages!  At the top, we have the iconic Boris Karloff version of the abhorred monster from our 1931 Universal Photoplay edition of Frankenstein.  A century earlier, we have our cherished sexy and confused nude monster!  He is so tormented and buff!  Lastly, we have moody and grotesque illustrations courtesy of artist Barry Moser’s 1983 edition.  The amputated limb clothing line is  pretty groovy!
