    Doctor Victoria Frankenstein makes her case to Mary Shelley about the future of womankind. Will Shelley join her? The story is deliciously Gothic, the characters are fun, and the art is gorgeously grand and gory. This is horror to savor. Recommended. Read Full Review

    I was intrigued with the first issue and this one ups that all the more, though I still want to see more of the bigger plan before getting fully on board. I like the ideas that the creative have put into play with Victoria and how Mary is drawn into it but mostly I'm still just enjoying dreamily flipping from page to page to take in all these gorgeous visuals. There's a lot of great detail and attention to expressions here that makes it rich combined with costume and setting design. The book has plenty of places that it can go and it's opened up in all the right ways here. I'm eager to see more to see if it can achieve its potential. Read Full Review
