    Frankenstein Undone #2 is almost mystic in the approach to storytelling, making wonderful use of classic literature and mythology to tell a story that is both insightful and entertaining. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Mark Tweedale May 27, 2020

    "Frankenstein Undone" sits between a classic piece of the literature canon and one of Mignola's best comics, and yet somehow it isn't dwarfed by either. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 27, 2020

    While it may not be a book for everyone, there is a lot to like. It is a well written and well illustrated comic book that may be currently flying under the radar. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald May 30, 2020

    It feels early on in the series to tell where Frankensteins' story will go. As a collected edition it will no doubt read a little more focused and enjoyable, but not a bad comic by any means. The art from Stenbeck and colours from Wagner is one of the highlights of the comic. Frankenstein undone promises to be another important chapter in the larger Mignolaverse which fans won’t want to miss. Read Full Review

    This installment might be a step down from its debut issue due to its expository nature, putting necessary figures on their own trajectories, though this is the necessity of the ambitious story that still has a lot to love. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 28, 2020

    This book s enjoyable for a number of reasons. Granted, Mignola has a lot of credit with me; if I was being honest, I didn't quite get the last Frankenstein series. Maybe Mignola and Allie realised that for the monster to have context that there had to be more than just him wondering the world. Ironically, for a prequel book, this series feels more open than what is yet to come. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens May 27, 2020

    This issue struggles. But it primarily struggles because this is an incredible creative team who's first issue was fantastic. This issue, however, feels rushed and like a general abandonment of the tone and arc that the first issue promised. But, with three more issues to go, there is plenty of time for this team to steady the ship. Read Full Review
