THE MONSTER RELAXES... 
THESE HUMBLE, 50FT- 
SPOKEN PEOPLE WHO PEED 
HIM SEEM TO 8E HIS 
PPIENDS, NOT ENEMIES . . . 




OUR ENEMIES ARE IN MANY 
SHAPES. ONE OF OUR MOST 
POWERFUL ENEMIES IS MOK 
THE CROCODILE . HE IS THE 
FIRST THAT MUST BE KILL EC?/ 




SUDDENLY, THERE BEFORE THEM, IS MOK/

OUR UNDYING GRATITUDE-- 
YET --THERE IS STILL 
ANOTHER TREACHEROUS

ONCC A^AiN THE MEN ARC AGHAST AT TH* 
POWER Of THIS EVIL Thing THAT IS AMQH&ST 
THEM . THERE IS NOTHING TO DO BUT FEAST 
Hl/V\ AS A FRIEND AND PLAN THE NEXT 
METHOD OF DESTRUCTION . . , 




NEXT DAY, UNMOLESTED, THE 
MONSTER INVESTIGATES Thf. 
LAND. 



AT THE FOOT OF THE 
MOUNTAIN, HE PAUSES, 
FOR HE HEARS A CRY.. 



HE STARTS UP THE SLOPE TO SEE 
WHAT IS ON TOP. 




AND THERE, AT THE TOP, ARE TWO CHAINED PRISONERS. 




IF YOU ARE GOING TO KILL US , 
DO IT NOW.' IT'S SETTER THAN 
BEING CHAINED IN THIS BROILING 
SUN WAITING FOR THIS VOLCANO 
TO BLOW ITS TOP '

SEA IN OUR LIFE BOAT. THEN 
WE CAME TO THIS LAND. SINCE 
THEN WE HAVE BEEN HELP 
CAPTIVE. ANP THEY INTEND 
TO SACRIFICE US TO 
THIS VOLCANO.. 




FOR A MOMENT THE MONSTER HESITATES, 
THEN HE LABORIOUSLY THINKS BACK TO 
THE WAY THE ISLANDERS ATTACKED HIM ON 
THE BEACH... ANP HE WONDERS WHY 
THEY COULDN'T KILL THE CROCODILE ANP 
THE LION, INSTEAD QF SENDING HIM 
IN TO BATTLE THEM... AND HE DECIDES 
TO TAKE A CHANCE ON THESE TWO 
PRISONERS... 




DOWN/ DOWN THIS SIDE OF THE 
VOLCANO? OUR BOAT Mk»HT STILL BE 



WHERE WE LEFT IT. 



CAREFULLY, WITH AS MUCH SPEEP AS THEY 
CAN, THE THREE MAKE THEIR WAY POWN

LOOKING UP, THE GIANT KNOWS 
THAT TO THE TWO PEOPLE IN THE 
BOAT THIS PLANE MEANS SAFETY 
AND LIFE... BUT TO HIM... IT 
MEANS HE WILL BE FOUND ANO 
HUNTED AND TORTURED AGAIN ... 




QUIETLY THE MONSTER SLIPS OUT OF THE BOAT. 
AND AS THE PLANE LANDS UPON THE WATER. 

HE SUBMERGES HIMSELF SO THEY SHOULDN'T 
SEE HIM. 



THE SURVIVORS ARE RESCUED. THEY ARE 
TAKEN ABOARD THE PLANE, AND THEIR. 
LITTLE LIFEBOAT IS LEFT TO THE MERC/ 
OF THE SEA ... 




...AND ONLY WHEN THE PLANE SOARS OFF 
INTO THE SKY DOES THE FRANKENSTEIN

SOON THERE WILL BE NO PLACE TO TAKE 
COVER, ANC THE SIGHT OF BLAZING TORCHES 
STRIKES TERROR IN HIM/ THERE IS A BUILDING 
NEAR HIAA,AND> WRENCHING OUT THE DOOR. 
KNOB ANO LOCK, HE ENTERS... 




THE ROOM IS FILLED WITH TABLES WITH SMEE1 
COVERED FORMS ON EACH/ THERE IS NO TIME 
"TO INVESTIGATE THE SURROUNDINGS, BUT AT 
LEAST FOR HIS OWN PROTECTION THE 

GIANT MUST KNOW WHAT IS UNPER THE 

SHEETS... 



LIFFING ONE COVER, HE SEES... 




BUT NOW THERE IS NO 
TIME TO LOSE/ THE SOUND 
OF THE SEARCHING, 
INFURIATED MOB COMES 
CLOSER UNTIL IT IS OUT- 
SIOE THE BUILPING... 



...ANO THE MONSTER QUICKLY GETS 
ON A TABLE ANO PULLS A COVER 
OVER HIM- 1 IP THEY FIND HIM, HE 
MUST FIGHT... BUT THOSE FLAMING 
TORCHES/ 




. IT WAS ALL VERY EASY. FOR AS THE MONSTER 
LIE5 THERE, HE HEARS THE CZOWP /MOVING 
AWAY IN THE OISTANCE / 



HE IS SAFE/ THERE IS SILENCE, ANO THE MUTE 
FORMS LIE OUITE STILL/ THE MONSTER SITS UP, 
THE SHEET SUPPING SILENTLY TO THE FLOOR... 




THE BEAST IS NOT READY 
TO VENTURE PORTH YET/ 
HE MUST GIVE THE CROWD 
TIME TO DISPERSE/ SO 
HE WAITS, LIFTING THE. 
5HEETS AND LOOKING 
AT THE FIGURES UNDER 
THEM... 




...THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATURE 
HE HAS EVER SEEN/ THE CHASE 
AND HIS PREDlC A/WENT ARE FOR- 
GOTTEN.. .HE MUST TAKE THIS 
BEAUTIFUL THING WITH HIM / 




SO HE DOES/ WITH THE SHROUDED FIGURE 
IN HIS ARMS, HE STEALS OUT AND HEADS 
FOR THE PLACE THAT IS HOME TO HIM AT 

PRESENT/ 



...AN OLD ABANDONED HOUSE DEEP IN THE 
WOODS, OUT OF SIGHT OF INQUISITIVE 
PEOPLE / 




THERE, IN THE COLD PARLOR, THE MONSTER 
SETS UP THIS LOVELV PRIZE OF HIS/ 




ONCE HE HAD FALLEN IN LOVE WITH A STATUE 
OF STONE... BUT THAT HAD BEEN PAR LESS 
BEAUTIFUL AND WARM THAN THIS NEW FIGURE 
OF WAX/ WHY, THIS ONE LOOKED ALIVE, 
WITH REAL HAIR, AND GLOWING PINK SKIN... 




ONE NIGHT WHEN THE PRANKENSTEJN MONSTER 
15 OUT THE PRIVACY OF H»5 HOME IS INVADED 
AS TWO MEN, SEEKING SHELTER, POOP. AND 
SOME VALUABLES, FIND THE HOUSE IN THE 
WOODS AND ENTER IT/ 



NO LIGHTS ANY- 
WHERE /NOBOpy 
SEEMS TO BE 
AROUND. 



THIS PLACE IS FALLING 
APART/ HOW COULD 
ANYBODY LIVE IN IT? 
THERE WON'T BE ANY- 
THING HERE FOR 




IN THE PARK , COLP PARLOR, THEY SUPPENLY 
COME ACROSS THE MANNiKiN ... 



SHH/ SOMESOPY'S 
HERE/ A WOMAN/ 




PON'T MOVE,LAPY, 
OR YOU WON'T LIVE 
LONG ENOUGH TO 
REGRET IT IF YOU 
DO/ 




THERE/ A BIG FIREPLACE, A BlG J SHE ISN'T 
FIRE/ THIS PLACE WILL BE / TALKING/ 
PRETTY COMFORTABLE ^*S LETS SEE. 

AFTER ALL/ HOW DOES T"^ IF SHE'LL SIT 
OUR GIRL FRIENP } POWN WITH US 

LIKE THE HEAT 7 J IN FRONT OF 

THE FIRE / 



fJr M\ 



w 



AWVV, LOOK WHAT'S 

HAPPENING/ SHE'S 

STARTING TO 

MELT/ 



HERE WE MEET THE 
PERFECT WOMAN WHO 
WON'T TALK OR NAG/ 
ANP SHE HAS TO GO, 
ANP START MELTING/ 





ALTHOUSH THE MEN ARE ENJOYING 
THE SI6HT OF THE MELTING MANNI 
KIN, OTHER EVES LOOK ON IN 
ANGUJSH AND FURY/ 



INTRUDING UPON THE MONSTERS 
PRIVACY 15 8AD ENOUGH, BUT 
THE VISION OF THE FAST MELT- 
INS FIGURE IS TOO MUCH FOR 
THE MONSTER... 





THERE ARE SOME STIFLED CRIES 
FROM THE VICTIMS, ALONG WITH 
THE SOUND OF SNAPPING, 
CRACKING BONES... 



FIRE DESTROYED HIS LOVELY 
MANNIKIN PRE WILL DESTROY 
HER DESTROYERS/ 




IT WAS ONLY A LITTLE THING ■• 
KEEPING THE BEAUTIFUL MANMIK1M 
IN HIS HOUSE SO HE COULD 
LOOK AT IT AND ENJOY IT AS 
NORMAL PEOPLE ENJOY A 
PAINTING OR A WORK OF ART... 
BUT THAT IS GONE NOW... 




SOME TIME LATER, THE MON5TER IS OUT fORA*lNfr 
RDR FOOD. TODAY HE 15 NOT 50 LUCKY-- THE 
ONLY ANIMALS HE HAS SEEM HAVE MANA^eD" 
TO ELUDE Hf<V\... 




..but there, atop a polb, o a lame *rd. ht 
must try to set it... 



HE HAS REACHED THE TOP, 
AND STILL THE BIRD HAS NOT 
FLOWN AWAY. HE PUTS OUT 
HIS HAND... 



...BUT HIS ARM COMES IN 
CONTACT WITH A HICH TENSION 
WIRE... 



THE PURSUED BIRO STIU. SITS 
PEK.CHEO ATOP THE POLE AS 
THE MONSTER FA1X3... 




ANO IT IS NOT TOO LON& THAT SOME PEOPLE 
DISCOVER THE ELECTROCUTED BODY OP THE 
FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER. 



ONCE A6AIN. THE MONSTER IS LYING ON 
A TABLE, A SHEET COVERING, HIS HUGE, 
OEAD FORM. 




then, in t«e park of nismt, 
something happens. the 

5fieeT-COVER£D FIGURES LYING 
ON THE TABLES ARE SILENT- - 
ALL EXCEPT ONE... 




THE ELECTRIC SHOCK 
KNOCKEP HIM OOT, BUT 
PIP NOT KILL HIM.' HE 
6ET5 OFF THE TABLE. THE 
PLACE SEEMS FAMILIAR •• 
ME REMEMBERS BEING- 
THERE BEFORE, WITH A 
SHEET OVER HIM... 




ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL FIGURE. ..AS BEAUTIFUL AS 
THE FIRST ONE.' HE WILL TAKE IT HOME/ 




THIS ONE, HE THINK5, WILL ALWAYS BE BEAUTI- 
FUL-NO ONE WILL COME TO DESTROY OR. 
MUTILATE IT. HE WILL GUARD IT TOO WELL' 




THIS ONE DOESN'T STAND UP AS WELL AS THE 
OTHER, SO THE MONSTER SEATS HER IN A 
CHAIR. YES, SHE IS AS BEAUTIFUL AS THE 
OTHER -- PERHAPS MORE SO... 



A LONG TIME AGO THE MONSTER HAD FOUND A 
BOX OF JEWELS IN A HIDDEN WALL SAFE . NOW 
HE HAS A USE FOR THOSE JEWELS -- TO 
ENHANCE THE BEAUTY OF HIS COMPANION... 




THE MONSTER MAS BEDECKED HER WiTH ALL 
TME JEWELS HE MAO STORED AWAY IN THE 
MOUSE. 8UT TMAT iS NOT ENOUGH-- HE 
MUST FIND MORE... AND SOME BEAUTIFUL 
CtOTHES. 



MC MUST ©O OUT AND LOOK FOR TMffM. U 
MEANS ME MUST LEAVE MER UNPROTECTED 
FOR A WHILE, BUT HE WILL- TAKE THE 
CHANCE. OUT HE GOES, HEADED FOR TOWN ... 




BUT THERE IN TOWN HE IS SPOTTED By SOME 
PEOPLE WHO GIVE CHASE. AND ONCE 
AGAIN THE MONSTER IS PURSUED THROUGH 
THE STREETS. 



ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN. A FREIGHT TRAIN 
IS GATHERING SPEED. FOR A MINUTE THE 
FRANKENSTEIN MONSTER ELUDES HIS CHASERS. 




. AND UNSEEN BY ANYONE, HE LEAPS INTO THE 
OPEN FREIGHT CAR. 




THE TRAIN IS RACING ALONG. AND THE 
MONSTER FEARS JUMPING OFF. tT IS 
QUITE SOME TIME AND QUITE SOME 
DISTANCE BEFORE THE TRAIN SLOWS 
DOWN ENOUGH FOR HIM TO LEAP TO 
THE GROUND... 




NOW TO GET BACK • - BUT MOW 7 EVEN FOLLOWING 
THE TRACK DOESN'T HELP, FOR THERE ARE 
SWITCHES THAT 'CONFUSE THE MONSTER... 



SOWETIMES Hl5 TRAVEL IS HELD UP --HE CANNOT 
GO THROUGH A TOWN IN THE DAYTIME— EVEN 
AT NIGHT HE RUNS A RISK. HE BACKTRACKS 
AND FOLLOWS THE OTHER SWITCH- OFF... 




AND FINALLY, HE SIGHTS FAMILIAR LANDMARKS, 
AND AT LAST HE COMES TO HIS HOUSE •- THE 
HOUSE IN WHICH HIS BEAUTY WAITS FOR HIM. 




as he rushes to the farlor to see her 
once again, he pictures her beauty 
that he his not seen for a while- 
but the monster is not aware of the 
length of time he has been away'" 
he does not realize that he has been 
away, searching- for his mouse. for 
months/ months-- in which time great 
changes can take place... ' 




HORROR REGISTEREP ON A 
HORRIBLE FACE IS AN AWFUL, 
HIDEOUS SIGHT... 




HIS VISION OF LOVELINESS IS NO MORE. HE HAS BEEN 
AWAY TOO LONG, BUT EVEN HAD HE STAYED, HE COULD NOT 
HAVE PREVENTED THE INEVITABLE DECOMPOSITION AND ROT 
THAT SET IN TO DESTROY THE BODY ME STOLE FROM THE 
MORGUE/ ». >w
