Elizabeth Cleve is an apprentice to the brilliant, extreme surgeon James Frankenstein. He's shown her his secret world of forbidden medical experiments. And how their mutual attraction has reached fever pitch. How far will she allow herself to go? A twisted horror/romance that walks a fine line between attraction and fear.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 29, 2021

    Modern Frankenstein #2 continues to be fascinating. Cornell brilliantly tells a story that centres mostly around two characters and the dynamic between them. The writers exploration of power and intimate connections are overpoweringly intense at times, but it makes the reader want to keep reading. As Drs Frankenstein and Cleve's experiments get bigger and their relationship gets closer, the pressure will only increase. The art team displays the chemistry between the main characters superbly.

    The Modern Frankenstein #2 gives us an escalation of things in many ways. There's a dance about the comic as Cleve and Frankenstein orbit each other in numerous ways. It's a solid new take on the classic story that adds a sexiness and danger about it all while keeping the horror always present. Read Full Review
