The cover and the first six pages of Madame Frankenstein #6, going on sale tomorrow from Image Comics. Full details here.

The issue is written by me, drawn by Megan Levens, and lettered by Crank! The cover is by Joëlle Jones and Nick Filardi, the art team on Brides of Helheim, who also release their new issue tomorrow.

Coming Up Comics gave us a 10/10 and had this to say:

You just don’t get stories like this every day. When you do, read them, and then read them again. When they’re this good, this deep, and this enjoyable, you don’t want to skip a moment of enjoying them. Issue by issue, more of the story has been given to us and these characters are more complicated than we had imagined. It’s truly a study on how there is no such thing as being completely bad or completely good, but human. We’ve become accustomed to having our heroes only do right, and our villains only do bad, that it’s a shock to the system when a narrative reminds us that the same person can do both.

Thank you to cullenbunn for always being generous with his time and his talent. Brides of Helheim is out October 1, so read the interview, and if it sounds interesting, seriously, go pick it up. Also order Helheim while you’re at it.

I admire the almost crazy amount of ambition possessed by the people over at Locust Moon Comics, and this is coming from an artist who decided it would be a good idea to spend a year and a half illustrating every single page of Moby-Dick.

As he caught her into his arms, she gave a sob that went through him like a knife. But as the minutes passed and she half lay in his arms in the shadow of the cab’s awning, he loved her so much and felt so close to her that he couldn’t believe anything could really have gone wrong.
