3 stars – I liked it

Frankenstein’s monster has been on the run since he was created. After years of running he finds himself underground and eventually in the lost world of Hyperborea. 

This was an interesting take on Frankenstein’s monster’s life. He fights a demon-possessed sorcerer, makes friends with ghosts, and continues living his life in the center of the world. It was a good story and one that anyone can pick up and understand. You don’t have to read any of Mignola’s other books before reading this one. 

The artwork is fantastic, like all of Ben Stenbeck’s work in the Mignolaverse. I do wish this story had a bit more depth than it had. It definitely felt like a repeat of previous stories of a strong character who is just beating up evil without much depth to it. I still liked it though.
