    I've always loved Hellboy, the idea of something that 'bumps back' is something I wish the six year old me that was scared of the dark had known about and I now love that Frankenstein is now a part of the Mignolaverse. Read Full Review

    Frankenstein Underground #4 may not be the flashiest monster book on shelves right now, but it most certainly is the most satisfying and as the lore gets deeper, so will audience's enjoyment. Read Full Review

    Just when you think a book revolving around a reanimated corpse of patchwork parts can't get any weirder, Mike Mignola finds a way. His latest issue is steeped with creature feature mythology, the writer deftly entwining the Monster's dark past with his own broader universe. Read Full Review

    Frankenstein Underground really is an odd book, and I mean that in a good way. At first it seems like it's at the periphery of the Hellboy Universe, but it's actually tangled up in the foundation of its mythology. With only one issue to go I'm very curious to see where it goes next. With all this set-up, it feels like it must be something quite grand in scope. Read Full Review

    This series is strange, but really awesome in its own Hellboy-esque way. However, you do not need to be a pro at the Hellboy universe facts in order to understand this series. I can’t wait to see where this goes next, and if there’s something big coming. Read Full Review
