Safely tucked away inside the hollow earth where humanity survived after Ragna Rok, precocious young Lilja receives visions of a new darkness taking root on the surface. Defying her elders, Lilja awakens the timeless oracle--once known as Frankenstein--to investigate the warnings and, perhaps, even explore the new world above.

Frankenstein: New World, from Mike Mignola, Thomas Sniegoski, Christopher Golden, and artist Peter Bergting, explores a new chapter in the world of Hellboy!

    Multiversity Comics - James Dowling Aug 3, 2022

    "Frankenstein: New World #1 is both quintessentially a Hellboy Universe book, and yet like nothing else we've seen before in the Hellboy Universe before. Bergting's art truly transports us into a new world, while embellishing it with compositions and pacing that tap into a Mignola-esque mood. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 3, 2022

    With the Mignola name getting me in the door but also intrigued by both Golden and Sniegoski's involvement, I'm really curious as to what this will be. Coming in with no real knowledge of the past appearances of the character, this works well in being very accessible to someone new and hopefully with enough to make existing fans happy as well. I really like the way it eases us into the familiar concept and story but with its own unique twists and trappings. It has a lot of good stuff going on and some gorgeous artwork with a great color design that makes this feel like the kind of strange world of the future that we expect. I'm excited to see what's to come with it. Read Full Review
