Could have been more to it. A very short read and it just sort of stops rather then ends. Art work is great.

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.

While Niles has done much credible work in the past, it's a sign of the dearth of fresh ideas in Hollywood that this flimsy adaptation has (evidently) been optioned for a movie. As has been noted here previously, nothing Niles has put together here contributes anything whatever to the ripe field of artificial resurrection, and the ending has all the feeling of an uninspired, lazy tack-on. Chee's art has some fine features, particularly his arterial sprays, but all in all this reads like a rush job w/out characterization, plot, theme or denouement. Disappointing.
