Frankenstein's Womb and new movie
It's been hard, but I've been doing pretty good about staying on-topic since limiting the blog's subject matter. Frankenstein's a trump card though, so interesting Monster news will sneak in from time to time. Like Warren Ellis' posting the cover to a graphic novella called Frankenstein's Womb coming this winter.
Or the announcement that Guillermo del Toro's planning a new Frankenstein movie. It sounds waaaay off in the future, but also perfect for del Toro. First though, he has to make The Hobbit, it's likely sequel, and an adaptation of Dan Simmons' Drood.
Simmons' novel is a fictionalized account of Charles Dickens' final years. I suspect and hope it offers an intriguing theory about the inspiration behind Dickens' unfinished, last novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
