What people are saying about FRANKENSTEIN’S MONSTER:

Legendary creator Mike Mignola has already told his own chapter of the Frankenstein story with Frankstein Underground. Now, Mignola returns for a new story that covers the space between his own story and Mary Shelley’s original tale. Frankenstein Undone follows the creature immediately after the death of his creator, as the creature is taken “out of Mary Shelley’s novel and into the world of Hellboy.” Featuring an all-star creative team including Mignola, Scott Allie, Ben Stenbeck, Brennan Wagner, and Clem Robins.


Following Victor Frankentein’s death, his legendary monster is left to wander the world in search of a new reason to go on living. For a time, it seems as if the monsters’s found a new home where he can live in peace, but things take a turn for the even stranger when a sudden attack puts the monster squarely in the world of Hellboy.”
