    Word Of The Nerd - Samantha Cross Apr 2, 2014

    While the previous issue placed more emphasis on the blurred line between men and monsters through a creature that is a walking representation of such a line, in this chapter of Monster & Madman, Steve Niles explores the common thread shared between Frankenstein's Monster and the people he's so curious about: loneliness.

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Apr 2, 2014

    Artist Damien Worm is a sick man indeed. Sick, and extremely talented. What a fantastic job he has done here, creating an atmosphere of gothic gloom that's perfect suited for the story that is being told. That story has been fully established now, and the only complaint I have is that this book is going to be concluded next month. How can that possibly be? I want more, a lot more. There's so much pathos here, so much more angles to explore. My hope is that this book will be recognised as the triumph that it is, and that writer Steve Niles and the wonderful Mr. Worm will team up again on a regular basis and give us more of the wonderfully depressing, awfully melancholic, gorgeously gothic world that they have created. How can you create something so fascinating and then just leave it be? I demand more. Please sirs, can I have some more? Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Blair Stevenson Apr 1, 2014

    What really makes this book stand out is the artwork. The gothic and often abstract artwork strikes a fantastic connection to the story. The art of Issue #2 is even stronger this that of last months #1 due to the increased use of full-page sized artwork. Both variations of the covers are also suitably beautifully disturbing.

    Capeless Crusader - tattoogirlreads Apr 1, 2014

    Frank doesn't set out to intentionally harm people. He even runs away when the city people attack him and call him names. But Jack shows him kindness while dissecting women and makes sure Frank is well cared for when he goes out to hunt new victims. So I ask you again: who really is the monster? Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Apr 3, 2014

    From what I have read of Steve Niles' stories, be is real good at throwing the reader off balance. With only one issue remaining here, I am eagerly awaiting to see where things will go. Like the two characters themselves, the future is mysterious. We shall see. Read Full Review
