Graphic Novel Spotlight - Monster Motors

Monster Motors by Brian Lynch

While retelling classic monster stories with cars wouldn't be my first choice, it plays out well in graphic novel format. The illustrations are stylized, allowing the monster cars to have personality and menace instead of holding rigidly to representing reality. Lynch also blends several classic monster stories, Dracula and Frankenstein being the major elements. There is a heavy dose of humor, keeping the story from becoming maudlin. A good choice for teen graphic novel fan looking for a mildly spooky story for Halloween.
