Universal Monsters hit the books
#1
Did anyone else see the Sci-Fi Wire bit about Dark Horse Press (Dark Horse Comics' book division) 'reviving' the Universal monsters for new books?

Apparently they're starting out with a Wolfman novel and a Dracula one, then will expand with Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, The Mummy, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

I wonder if the books will maintain the atmosphere of the first film in the series' (which tended to be more serious, there's nothing cheesy about Lugosi's Dracula, save some dated effects), or go with the more campy reputation they've acquired over time, due to shoddy, low budget remakes that had little to do with the original stories.

I wonder if they'll ever do an Invisible Man one? That'd be cool, too. My favourite Universal 'monster,' other than Dracula.

Could be interesting, never heard of the authors listed though. it would have to be done well.

Hmmm. who would you want to write these novels if you could pick an author?

#1 Neil Gaiman probably.

or umm... I don't know. Who else out f living authors could do something really creepy?

King of course
