A new comic book site, Coming Up Comics, ran two Madame Frankenstein features today.
First, a lengthy interview with yours truly, conducted by Timothy Merritt. Click on the excerpt to read the whole thing.
Though I should say, first and foremost, we also just wanted to be creepy. We wanted to make a story that was intriguing and scary like Shelley or the Universal Monster movies, to create a mood and atmosphere that would hopefully unsettle the reader even as he or she engaged emotionally with what was going on. Madame Frankenstein, just like the original Frankenstein, is first and foremost a horror story. The rest is only there if you really want it.
And then their reviewer David Melton gave us 8.8 out of 10.
Done in black-and-white, Madame Frankenstein is beautifully drawn and takes on a movie-style feel to it. Megan does a great job at making sure your focus is on exactly what she wants it to be; for instance, on the first page when Vincent and Courtney are introduced, we are not looking at all three characters as they speak to each other, just like Vincent we are focused solely on Courtney. It’s an effective technique and one I would expect from someone who’s been in the business for quite a while.
Thanks to everyone over there for such great coverage! We are only six days away for the comic being on stands!
