Comics artists love Frankenstein’s Bride

Arthur Adams

Saturday was the birthday of actress Elsa Lanchester, so to celebrate, John Rozum posted an amazing gallery of art inspired by her most famous role, the Bride of Frankenstein. A ton of comics artists are included and you can see many of them below the break. Be sure to visit Rozum’s site for even more, including additional pieces by Mike Mignola, Kevin Nowlan and Bruce Timm, as well as art by Basil Gogos, William Stout, and Mike McKone.

There’s another role I thought Lanchester did a good job with: the Miss Marple analogue Ms. Jessica Marbles in Neil Simon’s “Murder by Death” (1976)–it’s an absolutely hilarious send-up.

Thanks, Jamie!

@Acer: I’m also partial to her in Blackbeard’s Ghost. :)
