    Frankenstein Alive, Alive! #2 is another beautiful installment in this series. The six months between releases seems so long, but when looking at the love and care put into the writing and the art it's understandable. Although the story may be a bit slow and reads like an 18th century novel, it is an exceptional read coupled with phenomenal art. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - thorverine Nov 21, 2012

    Niles and Wrightson deliver a story worthy of being the next chapter in Shelley's work. The start of her immortal story is serialized in the back of this issue, compared to the interview with Wrightson in the first one. Niles does a great job with the story, but this issue is all about the art. This is an absolute must have 5/5 Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Nov 21, 2012

    Overall, a truly great comic for longtime fans of the monster. It's a rather simple story about a creature whom has awakened realizing his plot to destroy himself had failed, but finding he is in good company. Of course, things just can't work out for this guy, as you'll see in the ending. So go ahead fans of Universal Monster movies, the book, or if you're looking to read about Frankensteinwithout having readthe old book, give Alive, Alive! #2 a read. Read Full Review
