Scott Bukatman turns his attention to how the interiority of Frankenstein’s monster is expressed in comics, which has implications, he argues, for the way readers engage with the story and the monster’s place within it. The multiple modes of narration that comics offer—dialogue, ‘voice-over’ narrational captions, thought balloons, or the eschewal of any presentation of a character’s thoughts—make it a particularly apropos medium for the adaptation (or continuation) of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, a novel narrated by multiple figures, including both Victor Frankenstein and his misbegotten creation.
