    Review quote
    The Writer's Journey(blog) "Basic and Sumberac do an extraordinary job of reinterpreting the story without changing a single word. The madness of the creator and the terror of the creature are on full display in the illustrations, a grand marriage between Mary Shelley's writing and the imagination of the artists." Asbury Park Press "Sometimes, you want to stop traffic. You want people to nudge you and ask: "What the heck is that you're reading?" It may be the cover art or just the title that arrests their attention. ... Just a few moments leafing through the pages of the classic story, illustrated by Zdenko Basic and Manuel Sumberac, will make you wonder what took them so long to get "Frank" to the Steampunk genre. A perfect mating." San Francisco Book Review "Frankenstein goes quite well with the steampunk style. With its gritty post-industrial imagery, the dark ambiance of these illustrations does a wonderful job helping readers visualize the story... the photoshop-esque style of these particular pictures support the story fantastically. Between the pictures and the generous double-spaced layout of the text, this is one edition of the story that is meant to be lingered over, enjoyed languidly and thoroughly. A beautiful version of a classic story; this is a must-have for any steampunk fan's library." SanFranciscoBookReview.com "Frankenstein goes quite well with the steampunk style.

Dark Faerie Tales blog "The illustrations of this book are what set it apart from other editions of Frankenstein. ...Basic and Sumberac's uses of stark colors invites the reader further into the world of Frankenstein and his foleys. Most of the scenes chosen to be drawn are key to the novel itself, giving the reader yet another avenue to fuel their imagination. ...This particular version is well worth the money. Not only do you get a great story, you also get great visual renditions of captivating scenes along the way."
