    Comic Bastards - Kevin Beckham May 10, 2012

    You don’t have to be a horror fan or a Frankenstein lover to enjoy this book. It’s just good simple story telling and that’s all you need and there is nothing wrong with that. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene May 14, 2012

    The ending is guaranteed to make you come back for next month's issue. I know that is what comics are supposed to do and the good guy is always able to MacGyver their way out. Bunn has created a situation that truly has me scratching my head because I have no idea how Wolverine is going to get out of this situation. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lan Pitts May 8, 2012

    This is obviously a labor of love for the two creators. I'm interested to see where they can take or possibly evolve the Monster's mythos and legend from here as it could go anywhere knowing the minds at work. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Andrenn May 17, 2012

    Frankenstein Alive, Alive #1 is a good start to what has all the potential to be a worthy sequel to the classic that started it all. It is created by two titans of horror comics that know what they're doing and know how to deliver a great story and excellent horror. If you are a fan of Frankenstein or Bernie Wrightson you absolutely should buy this issue. If you have ever wanted to check out Wrightson's work, here is the perfect start. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Jun 3, 2012

    Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson are a match made in classic horror heaven. Don't expect a ton of gore that has been in Nile's other works like Pieces for Mom. If you read Frankenstein Alive, Alive #1 you get great artwork with only small touches of color in all the right places and an age-old story with no huge twist, but an enjoyable final classic.

    IGN - Poet Mase May 9, 2012

    Don't buy this book if you think it's going to be terrifying or if you think, for some reason, that you're obliged to. Definitely don't buy it if you think that its silky smooth cover will someday be worth more than it is now. Buy it if you're into the horror genre and its history. Pick up a copy if you appreciate the visual storytelling of the old cinema. Take one home if you don't mind the effort of looking for subtext in a book that promises a new take on an old favorite. This one's not for everyone, but those in the target audience will enjoy it a great deal. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Brett Monro May 14, 2012

    I have always liked the Modern Prometheus (part of which is included at the back of the comic), and consider Frankenstein one of the great monsters of all-time. This book is a worthy addition to the legacy, with strong writing and fantastic art. My only concern is how they will tread the line between new and old. They have thirteen issues to stay true to the core of the character, while still placing him in new, fitting situations. A very good start… Read Full Review
