Has anyone here read "Fantomestein" on Tumblr at all?

I've become quite obsessed with it, personally.

It's a crossover between "The Phantom of the Opera" (the novel) and "Frankenstein" (the novel), based on the idea that the monster goes off to become the notorious "Opera Ghost, after the end of "Frankenstein", which...

Actually makes a lot of sense.

As someone who loves the Gaston Leroux "Phantom" book, I know the source material quite well. And Erik in that is actually somewhat described looking like Victor's creation.

Furthermore, Erik/The Phantom makes the curious comment about how he accidentally ended up with the name Erik, and that it wasn't actually given to him--something I could see if he was originally the creation;)

There's also Erik's excitement about Christine promising to be his "living bride" at the end of the story (really, he was just glad that this meant Christine wouldn't try to kill herself, as she had attempted to earlier and had thought about a lot), but if you're imaginative, you can take that to mean something else entirely.

Now, do I really think that these two characters were meant to be one in the same (or that I think the author thinks that)?

No. But it's still a fun and unique idea to read about, I find!

And this comic just has such a nice voice and style. And blends the novel events together seamlessly, with the writer/artist's own ideas, and I... I just love it so much.

It's also become quite famous, I guess. It was featured in some sort of magazine, and I think it's even on TV Tropes now.

The creator, Beka, also wants to publish it someday, so here's hoping:D

For anyone curious, here are links to all the pages of it thus far (it's updated every Friday):

And here's today's update, which I really enjoy.

It's getting into the meat of things more than the last two were (though I understand why they had to happen). It's also more colorful, which is also nice!

...Though now I'm sort of regretting making this thread. I feel like this comic's really too obscure for anyone to know/care about.

If any of the mods are seeing this, and feel that way, go ahead and close this forum page. I'd understand:D
