[Solicitations] Frankenstein, Alive, Alive returns in January

IDW Publishing has announced the final issue of Steve Niles and the late Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein, Alive, Alive will arrive in January 2018.

“Bernie was more than a brilliant artist and collaborator to me,” said writer Steve Niles, “he was a dear friend. I am so happy to see this final issue finished by Kelley, an artist whose work Bernie greatly respected.”

Prior to his tragic passing, Wrightson had completed several pages and laid out the entire fourth issue. Acclaimed artist Kelley Jones, a lifelong Wrightson devotee, has agreed to step in and work from the layouts to finish the project.

“When Bernie realized he wouldn’t be able to complete the series we began discussing his options, and his first choice was to have Kelley jump in,” said Liz Wrightson. “Bernie felt that Kelley’s style would mesh with his own seamlessly, and it was important to him that the arc be finished and that all four issues form a visually coherent whole. He’d have been so gratified to see this issue published at last.”

“Finishing Bernie’s work is like having a last, wonderful conversation with him,” added Jones. “Thank God it will be about Frankenstein, something we both love so much.”
