Frankenstein Alive, Alive #4 Sells Out, Gets 2nd Printing with New Bernie Wrightson Cover

IDW Publishing is pleased to announce that Frankenstein Alive, Alive! #4 has sold out at the distributor level after arriving in stores Wednesday, March 7th. In order to meet fan demand, a second printing of the title will go back to print immediately, and fans can expect them in stores May 2nd.

Frankenstein Alive, Alive! was meant to be a 4 issue mini-series by Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson to explore the further adventures of Mary Shelley’s monster. Prior to his tragic passing, Wrightson had completed several pages and laid out the entire final issue. Acclaimed artist Kelley Jones agreed to come on board, work from the layouts, and help complete the series. Issue #4 contains the final pages that Wrightson was able to draw along with Jones’ contribution, and the result flew off the shelves! The second printing will feature a new cover (shown above), showcasing an interior double-page spread pencil layout by Wrightson.
