Displeased with her first attempt at creating man, Victoria prepares to end the creature's life mere moments after it began. Horrified, Mary convinces Victoria to allow her to educate Ad-am-as she names him-before making any rash decisions. Though the results of Mary's work are astounding, the events that follow lead her to wish she had just let him die...
Brought to life by Adam Glass (ROUGH RIDERS, THE NORMALS, THE LOLLIPOP KIDS) and Olivia Cuartero-Briggs (TV's The Arrangement) with art by Hayden Sherman (COLD WAR, The Few, Wasted Space), MARY SHELLEY: MONSTER HUNTER is historical fiction at its most (Af-ter)shocking!

    The creature is brought back to life. What could possibly go wrong? Great twist in the classic tale, with Mary Shelley directly involved in Adam's birth. I love the antagonist that appears in the final three pages and what this character brings to the book. The visuals are dark and glorious, though every element of the visuals can be seen in this tale. Even the letters, with Adam's horrific speech, add to the foreshadowing of doom. This is a must-buy for all fans of horror and the doctor's iconic creation. Even if one hasn't purchased the previous issues, you could start here and fully enjoy the horror. Read Full Review

    I'm really enjoying this series and the spin on Mary herself as we get some really fun stuff with Adam and Victoria. But it's not just one thing that clicks here but all things, from the dynamic of all the people residing in the house and how they interact to the careful stitching and creation of Adam. Adding in the educational period, the surprises when it comes to Harriet, and just how quickly everything changes at the end means this is a book that you keep reading without being quite sure exactly what will come next but being excited by every turn of the page.
