Image of the Day: Penny Dreadful's Dr. Frankenstein is ready to operate

Showtime's released a new promo poster for this summer's Penny Dreadful. The series features iconic literary figures including those from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. In the following photo, we're introduced to the novel's title character.

This is the man responsible for creating "the monster" that's haunted us for centuries. In the show, Dr. Frankenstein is played by Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), who looks more like a patient than a doctor. His bloodshot eyes prove nothing gets in the way of his work, not even his own sanity.

Penny Dreadful premieres May 11 on Showtime.
