Image Introduces Frankenstein Mobster
By Brian Jacks
Monster and mafia fans rejoice, for your two favorite genres are about to get rolled into one. Image Comics has announced the bi-monthly FRANKENSTEIN MOBSTER #0, written and drawn by Mark Wheatley.
Welcome to Monstros City, a port-of-entry like many others for immigrants from around the world. As elsewhere, these newcomers are searching for a new life in the Land of the Free, and cultures mix to produce a lively, active, exciting place. This town, though, has one class of immigrant not found in other burgs…
They like to be called "Exceptionals,” but many people just call them Monsters.
Mummies, Vampires, Ghouls, Trolls, Giants, Werefolk and Changelings. Like the English, European, Mediterranean, Asian and African "normals" who came before them, the "Exceptionals" wanted a land to call their own, where they could escape persecution and their children could find a better life. Instead they became second-class citizens, living in the slums known as the Dead End. These so-called Monsters are preyed on by mobsters and suspected by the police. They've waited for someone who would protect them against the criminals, someone who would champion their cause to the Law.
What they're about to get is the Frankenstein Mobster.
