    Elements evoking the Karloff movie, such as fades to black or movie-set dungeons, mix with societal clashes right out of Fitzgerald as this period horror piece continues to breathe new life into Shelley's story. Read Full Review

    Backwards Compatible - Paul Fiander Jun 1, 2014

    Madame Frankenstein has done a lot by itself to allay my fears, the use of the supernatural along with scientific endeavour makes sense now and that was probably my main fear for the plot This is not an all action read but instead the ideas are really well presented and point towards a deepening narrative, it may not be for all but at its core it’s a throwback to storytelling with a meaning.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 5, 2014

    Madame Frankenstein continues its journey through Vincent Krall's fractured psyche.  What's scary about this comic is not that he brought a woman back to life, but how normal Rich makes it seem.  There's this glimmer of hope that maybe everything will be okay for these two crazy kids.  They'll have a great story to tell their grandkids one day.  I'm dying to find out what's going on with these fairies though.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Eric Bridges Jun 3, 2014

    Jamie Rich has a way of crafting a story that allows for some previous mythology but adds a new dynamic to something that has been done a million times before. I was worried that it was going to be staying the same path of Frankenstein but it is has diverged greatly and has new emotions to bring to the table. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jun 9, 2014

    Two issues in, Rich and Levens' "Madame Frankenstein" mini-series is more interesting than I would have expected as it blends together some disparate ideas and genres to make a more fascinating whole. Still, as a reader, I yearn for some agency for Courtney/Gail and suspect the book will become more layered once it reaches that point. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Joe Morrison Jun 4, 2014

    A weird stitching together of revenge, romance, monster movies and My Fair Lady this is a strange beast. The parts are all there, it just needs a little bit more spark to really bring it to life. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Cody Mudge Jun 4, 2014

    I really dont want to run Madame Frankenstein through the mud because it isnt a terrible comic. The most frustrating aspect of this series is that is isnt remarkable in any way while also avoiding being outright bad. The book has been mediocre so far and thats going to lead to soft sales. This team needed to have a much stronger lead for this series to be a successful mini from Image Comics. Read Full Review
