Review by: Decapitated Dan Royer (puyaybusto)
Our thoughts: Electric Frankenstein is a fun Monster/Humor comic. It follows our man Frank as he deals with the crises of his bride wanting to have...CHILDREN! The only way to solve the problem is to find the Doctor and have him create them they same way he made Frank. What lies within these pages is a nice fun read that reminds me of the Elvira style books Claypool put out.
Artwork: 4.5 out of 5
Now it might be because I am becoming a big Mike Hoffman fan but his artwork just makes me want to read his books. This one is no exception. The story flows nicely. Facial expressions tend to be a bit obscure here and there but the scene in general reads right. Not to mention the eye candy presented with his renditions of the Bride. Overall great art.
Story: 4 out of 5
While the story follows a steady path I wanted more. A book like this makes me want a collection of funny Frank stories, rather than just one. But it is solid overall. I went with a 4 on it only because it's not thought provoking but it left me just satisfied and I would read more if it were offered.
Dying Breath: 4 out of 5
Mike Hoffman tells a solid story here with artwork that matches the style. Adams Family and Munsters fans, a book like this is right up your alley. It takes a step aside from the normal Frankenstein is going to kill you routine and delivers. So if your looking for that fun book that not everyone else is creating this one is worth taking a look at.
