    I don’t get the character design on the cover or Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein. He’s got all the stitches to imply that he’s been pieced together (i guess), but the abs and other musculature in perfectly in line, so maybe he’d been cut into perfect portions and then sewn back together without and ragged bits, and why must his outfit be sewn together in dozens of locations? I’d be fine if he had newer clothes that he could have been dressed in or could have stolen off a line (if those still exist), or tattered clothes that he found in the trash or somewhere. Unless upon reanimation he was given sewing powers like Stallone with the knitting in Demolition Man and he sewed himself together a pair of pants and a jacket that had a bunch of razor slits all over it.
