“The Living Corpse makes a desperate jump into limbo in search of sanctuary and finds… Frankenstein’s monster?!? What connection does the reanimated creature have in common with our own undead hero? Can the Living Corpse stand on the sidelines when the monster’s plan involves werewolves?

Alright so I decided to just jump past reading issues 1-4 and dive into 5 and 6 to present you with this frightful review. I will admit that I was a little bit out of the loop skipping those issues for now, but it these two were self contained and well written.

Artwork: 4.5 out of 5
This is what stands out above anything else in this book. These guys know what is going on! I can’t not get over how great the visuals are. From the Wicked looking werewolves to beautiful bride it’s all top notch work. The colors just make it that much better. Oh and did I mention the sweet covers to choose from. It is an all around win in my opinion.

Story: 4.0 out of 5
Granted I missed 6 issues (there was a #o and #1/2) but I felt the story was easily accessible. It was a lot of fun and humor. There was good interaction between the characters as well. It contains all the characters I love with some new ideas behind them. I mean come on, who would think to bring back the Bride of Frankenstein with some Werewolf serum? Just an overall nice job within the two issues.

Dying Breath: 4.3 out of 5
Overall the two issues contain a good story with great art. The guys behind it know what they are doing and I was far from disappointed. I can not wait to go back and see how the story progressed to get to this point. The Modern Prometheus Story arc is great and because of it I have yet another new title on my pull list.
