Frankenstein Alive, Alive is one of the best projects to come out in the last few years of comics, done by artist icon Bernie Wrightson. The hyper-detailed art, the grey washes, the deep blacks. All of it made for a compelling read, that is for sure. One of the best horror comics you can pick up, there is not a ton of artwork from the books floating around available at the moment. However, one page is. Currently on auction at Heritage, part of Dallas Lot #7234, is Frankenstein Alive, Alive #2, page 1. An amazing splash page, it currently sits at $6,000 with bids continuing for the next 24 hours or so. Check out the page below.
Frankenstein & Wrightson Are A Match Made In Heaven
"Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein Alive, Alive #2 Splash Page 1 Original Art (IDW, 2012). Incredible opening splash page featuring the hyper-detailed artwork Wrightson is known for — revisiting one of the most acclaimed properties he contributed to — Frankenstein's Monster! Here an enormous sarcophagus is uncovered, later revealed to be housing the huge homunculus. Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image size of 10.5" x 15.75".

One of the all-time best horror artists, Wrightson and Frankenstein's Monster go together beautifully. It would be a dream to own any pages from this project, let alone a splash page.
