News and Notes
Before there was a comics code authority, Dick Briefer wrote and drew a violent comic book based on Mary Shelley's famous fictional creation. Once Frankenstein had vanquished the Nazis, the series became a good-natured, supernatural comedy -- and that's when it really came alive. Reprints are hard to come by, but Pure Excitement Comics has posted two classic stories online (see issues 18 and 23) that will delight horror-comedy fans of all ages.
