Here’s what Jean had to say about its creation:
The challenge of creating a distinctive and singular image for Teen Frankenstein was the ubiquitous number of images associated with the name. The classic Shelley novel–of which there are multiple versions and the many television/movies old and new. So how to set yourself apart? What I love about the cover our Creative Director, Rich Deas, has come up with is that it’s simple and sinister. It takes a minute to know what you’re looking at. You’re drawn closer.. And then you see the profile, the lightening, the staples. Ah, there he is–Teen Frankenstein. Grim, but beautiful.

Thus begins a twisty, turn-y take on a familiar tale, set in the town of Hollow Pines, Texas, where high school is truly horrifying.
