Frankenstein Now and Forever

Alex Baladi
Alex Baladi

This much anticipated English debut of Baladi's masterpiece transposes one of the best-loved characters from the horror genre into modern day Geneva. Highly repscted throughout Europe as a true innovator of the comics form, this is considered by many to be one of Baladi's best works. When first published in French in 2001 this graphic album won acclaim and awards from around the world; this new translation promises to introduce Baladi's work to a new and winer audience. This edition has been completely re-lettered by the artist.

Baladi’s comics are reminiscent of a number of contemporary post-underground cartoonists whose work is influenced by dreams, although in many ways I think he is quickly surpassing his most obvious influences in terms of quality. Baladi’s stuff is sparsely and occasionally primitively drawn, but it is also incredibly sophisticated in terms of transitions and design. Ultimately Baladi takes more risks and strives to achieve more than many of his contemporaries, and that is what makes his work so exciting when it works. One might ignorantly dismiss Baladi as a sum of his influences, but his work in Frankenstein, Encore et Toujours demonstrates that he is one of the most challenging cartoonists on the scene today.” Bart Beatty in The Comics Journal.
