Lovestruck


The third incarnation of Dick Briefer’s Frankenstein often found itself entangled in unlikely love scenarios, probably because everyone loves a good “Beauty And The Beast” tale and the cartoonist was admittedly a bit low on inspiration at the time.

Of course, none of these tales end happily … mostly because the monster isn’t really capable of much except destruction. That’s part of the character’s tragedy, I suppose, and once again a marked difference from the original malcontent that declared war against humanity in those early issues of Prize Comics.

The Time Bullet’s Three Faces Of Frankenstein week concludes with “Entranced,” one of Briefer’s better anti-romance comics. The story originally appeared in Frankenstein Comics #29 (Prize, Februrary-March 1954).

As if it needs to be pointed out, the script and art are by Briefer.
