Part 2 of The House of Slaughter story arc is here.

Matt Fraction is back with Terry Dodson to bring us an action/adventure story right out of the 1940s… er, wait. No, the modern era. Well, the first issue of this rollicking, fun time splits the difference.

I was thrilled to see a new Nailbiter title in the queue from Image Comics. If you don’t know, Nailbiter is the absolutely epic, three-volume tale about a town, Buckaroo, Oregon, that has a dark past of being the birthplace of sixteen infamous serial killers, the Buckaroo Butchers. The most well known of those serial killers is the Nailbiter. The mythology that our hero police officers and FBI agents dug into throughout the first series was just as deep and complex as the characters themselves.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was about the ambition of science, about playing god, and about how humans are more monsters than the monsters they create. These themes have resided comfortably in fiction ever since, from Blade Runner to just about every zombie story ever written. Mike Mignola’s Hellboy has always been about fitting in, the monsters we have within us, and the internal and external fight against those monsters. Frankenstein Undone is the border between these two worlds, the crossing of these themes, and a conversation between creators and it fits like a glove. #StoriesMatter because they allow us to feed off previous stories and reflect on what matters to us in new stories.

The team of Evan Dorkin and Veronica and Andy Fish are spinning a tale with multiple threads that inevitably will continue after next issue’s conclusion. There are just too many things at play, and they are all wonderful. I would hate to see any of them get short shrift.
