    What makes Madame Frankenstein (which I feel should really be titled Mademoiselle Frankenstein, but it's a minor gripe) such an engrossing read is Rich's characterization. This issue focuses on the rivalry between protagonist Vincent Krall and Henry Lean, the well-to-do son of the rich man his family served for years. Henry's cruel bullying and sense of ownership of Vincent makes it easy to root for the latter, but what's more interesting is the fact that Vincent directs the same sort of behavior toward his late object of his affection and newly resurrected creation. Just as Henry uses Vincent to elevate himself, so does Vincent treat as a means to his ends. Vincent is both the hero and the villain of the story, and that dichotomous approach in the storytelling keeps pulling the reader in different directions. Read Full Review

    Madame Frankenstein #3 is an important step in telling the bigger story of Courtney and Vincent. Backstory is important and we get it in a big dose here. With gorgeous, atmospheric art, this is not a mini series to be missed. Read Full Review

    Despite my criticisms, I'm rooting for "Madame Frankenstein." There's a lot to like, and more importantly, a lot to build on going forward. This looks like one of those series that'll get motoring after the halfway point -- I'd recommend staying on board for when it does. Read Full Review

    Great art, and a genuinely deep story that gets more involved with each new revelation. The concept may be old as sci-fi itself but never feels tired in this title.
