Lightning splits the sky, as bone rattling thunder echoes through the lab. This image captured on Retro51’s newest literary Halloween Horror Popper is inspired by one of the most classic Gothic tales, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Therefore, the new Retro 51 Tornado Popper Frankenstein Rollerball is sure to rattle your bones as you’re inspired to write.
First of all, did you know that the Retro 51 Tornado Popper Frankenstein Rollerball is a limited edition? In other words, only 1031 of these rollerballs exist. If you like to write in the dark, this pen is for you. It’s got a neon glow in the dark yellow-green lacquer with two tone gloss black printing. The Frankenstein pen is even adorned with stealth black trim for extra spookiness. Above all, there’s a Frankenstein hand on the top disc. This way, as you reach for the pen, it also reaches back for you. Each one is packed in a matching graphic tube.
“It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the outward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed to the metaphysical, or in its highest sense, the physical secrets of the world.” – Victor Frankenstein
Notably, in the story, Victor Frankenstein’s obsessive pursuit of knowledge and his desire to uncover the mysteries of life ultimately bring about the “hideous creation” in the novel from 1818. In addition, this unchecked ambition eventually leads to tragic consequences for both the scientist and his creation. Similarly, the latest Tornado Popper stitches together events from Frankenstein and the Creature’s lives: the creation and creator, the pursuit of love turned rage and the Creature retreating from the humanity that rejected him.
