This week the gang discusses the comic I, Frankenstein: Genesis by Kevin Grevioux as well as the motion comic and the film adaptation starring Aaron Eckhart. While they applaud the trans-media attempt, they aren’t sure that the film stands up well on it’s own.
What do you think? Have a listen and then tell us your own thoughts on the comic and film in the comments!
For similar adaptations, check out our episodes on Frankenstein/Frankenweenie, Thor: The Dark World, RIPD, Carrie, Kick-Ass 2, and The Wolverine.
