Although Goodreads has this as just Frankenstein by Junji Ito, this is actually volume 16 of his Horror Comic Collection. It's also the first tale I've ever seen where Ito has adapted a European/Western horror tale instead of the usual eastern folklore. It's a relatively faithful adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel instead of the classic Universal monster film. It is however a little on the short side when compared to Shelley's novel, and many of the rich details of her book are left out in this adaptation. That being said, all of the key players are in tact, the setting is accurate both in time and place, and Frankenstein's monster is as complex and tortured as his novel counterpart.
While the dialogue is good, it can feel flat at times. Some of the conversations seem to be transcribed straight from the novel, and although I should give Ito props for that, it doesn't always work out within the limited span of manga text bubbles. His artwork has very detailed scenery, realistic character proportions, and a is generally beautiful to look at. It is always the hallmark of his titles and this is no exception. The monster is so grotesquely drawn, but it is his face that reveals the most horror as the creature struggles to find acceptance from humans. His eye depict pure woe and pain that is more hideous than all the corpses dug up and sewn together. It's the emotion in the art of the monster that separates this Frankenstein from most adaptations of the classic novel. While this isn't the best Ito work by far, or even the ultimate rendition of Frankenstein (just go read the actual novel if you wanted that), it is a very good, well drawn one-shot horror manga that fit in perfectly in my first week of October horror mania. 4 out of 5.

Read information about the authorJunji Itō (伊藤 潤二) Born in Gifu Prefecture in 1963, he was inspired from a young age by his older sister's drawing and Kazuo Umezu's comics and thus took an interest in drawing horror comics himself. Nevertheless, upon graduation he trained as a dental technician, and until the early 1990s he juggled his dental career with his increasingly successful hobby — even after being selected as the winner of the prestigious Umezu prize for horror manga.
The most common obsessions are with beauty, long hair, and beautiful girls, especially in his Tomie and Flesh-Colored Horror comic collections. For example: A girl's hair rebels against being cut off and runs off with her head; Girls deliberately catch a disease that makes them beautiful but then murder each other; a woman treats her skin with lotion so she can take it off and look at her muscles, but the skin dissolves and she tries to steal her sister's skin, etc.
Ito's universe is also very cruel and capricious; his characters often find themselves victims of malevolent unnatural circumstances for no discernible reason or punished out of proportion for minor infractions against an unknown and incomprehensible natural order.
His longest work, the three-volume Uzumaki, is about a town's obsession with spirals: people become variously fascinated with, terrified of, and consumed by the countless occurrences of the spiral in nature. Apart from the ghastly, convincingly-drawn deaths, the book projects an effective atmosphere of creeping fear as the town's inhabitants become less and less human, and more and more bizarre things begin to happen.
Before Uzumaki, Ito was best known for Tomie, a comic series about a beautiful, teasing and eternally youthful high school girl who inspires her stricken admirers to murder each other in fits of jealous rage. Eventually, unable to cope with her coy flirtation and their desire to possess Tomie completely, they are inevitably compelled to kill her — only to discover that, regardless of the method they chose to dispose of her body, her body will always regenerate.
In 1998, during the horror boom that followed the success of Ringu, Tomie was adapted into a movie. Since Tomie, many of his works have been adapted for TV and the cinema.
