    Frankenstein Alive, Alive is a story fans of the dark and grim will love, though it may take some time to get your fix. Whether you hold off and wait until it's complete, or read it whenever it comes out, this is one series that demands your attention. The third time took a while, but it's still a charm.

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Apr 16, 2014

    If youre still not convinced, all that can be said is that youre really missing out on something special if you dont read this book. IDW has made it even easier for you to catch up on previous issues, but FAA #3 can easily stand alone as an independent read. Steve Niles passion for and understanding of the classic story of the monster that struggles with morality is unparalleled in any medium and this is tremendously clear in Frankenstein Alive, Alive! Aside from this, Bernie Wrightson is a living legend who continues to amaze in this series. This is a perfect book that demands everybodys attention. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Frank Lanza Apr 16, 2014

    I really like this series, and this issue in particular, for it's insight into the heart of Frankenstein's Monster and how he's in constant battle with his nature. Also, it drives home the point of how man, in his arrogance, could create and belittle a creature that proves to have more integrity and compassion than we do. Good stuff indeed. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Apr 23, 2014

    Frankenstein, Alive, Alive! is a brilliant character study providing a take on someone that has been labeled a monster for decades.  Instead of telling the same old story of this creature mindlessly rampaging at villagers with torches, Niles and Wrightson are providing an emotional look at a misunderstood beast that is searching for his true place in the world.  Despite his appearance, humanity is the real monster, considering they brought him back to life and have brought him face to face with this new situation.

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Apr 17, 2014

    How can a book so long-delayed be so worthy of the wait? The next issue can be delayed for another year if they like. I don't mind. If it's anywhere near as good as this issue then I'll be happy to wait. Frankenstein Alive, Alive #3 is a work of heartbreaking, melancholic art. Dripping with emotion, gorgeously illustrated and lovingly created from beginning to end, this is the very definition of a must buy book. Forget everything else this week. King Bernie has returned. Comic books simply don't get any better than this. Read Full Review

    If you are a fan of Frankenstein, or of just exquisite artwork in your comic books I highly recommend picking up this series, if not in single-issue form definitely pick up the trade when it comes out and stare in awe at each page as you flip through! Read Full Review
