    Word Of The Nerd - Samantha Cross May 23, 2014

    Monster & Madman is a beautiful rumination on what makes a man and what makes a monster. In just three issues Steve Niles manages to keep those thoughts present throughout the narrative without hitting you over the head with the message. It's a terse mini comic, relying more on the art to tell the story at times and Damien Worm's work is the type that sticks in your brain long after you've put the book down. His creature is as mangled and horrifying as he is sympathetic. We feel his pain and longing because Worm makes sure everything from the composition of the page to the color palette reflects his mood. And those final pages just hit you where you live. The collaboration between Niles and Worm on this piece has me chomping at the bit for their next project, October Faction. Read Full Review

    I will miss this mini series and I do wish it would have kept going. I would have loved to have seen where Frankenstein's monster's "life" would have gone. All in all, this is a must read. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II May 22, 2014

    I really did enjoy this one a lot, lettering aside. The ending here is disturbing, yet it feels "right" to me. It puts a nice (and morbid) finishing touch to a good mini. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Lonnie Nadler May 23, 2014

    Theoretically, this comic is outstanding. The concept of mixing fictions greatest horror icon with realitys greatest horror mystery is absolutely superb. It wasnt until this final issue, however, that I saw how the execution of this plot was just as outstanding as the theoretical concept. Its not just about mixing fiction and reality. Its about using fiction to explain reality. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Blair Stevenson May 20, 2014

    It is when this story read all together the true quality of both the writing and art in this book becomes apparent. A strong outing from IDW. It would appear the highly successful Niles/IDW relationship isnt going anywhere anytime soon! good. Read Full Review
