Rick Magyar inked my pencils for TOPPS comics adaptation of the Frank Darabont scripted, Kenneth Branagh directed and Francis Ford Coppola produced FRANKENSTEIN.
This was done during the time I was inking CHIAROSCURO for Vertigo and still pencilling CONAN THE ADVENTURER.
Drank lots of coffee back in those days.
I think Rick did a great job on the inks. I only had about three pages of slides to work from and there was no online database to grab any screencaps or concept art so I was winging much of it. I didn't know how the finished film would look since I was already on the fourth issue when it finally hit the theaters.
Roy Thomas on the script and it's always a breeze working with Roy.
The film wasn't critically received but it had its moments and I still enjoy DeNiro's take on the monster.
Another plus was that John Bolton and Tim Bradstreet did some exceptional covers at the time for the comic series.
