Ever get tired of the good guys always getting the best of the monsters?
So does Frank.
Of course, he’s not going to let that stand in the way of the fat paycheque he’s been promised to appear in Hollywood’s latest monster-slayer epic alongside all his old friends: the Count, the Mummy and the Wolfman.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Frank is short for Frankenstein’s Monster, long past his terrifying beast days and now just trying to make ends meet.
Screamland, from the minds of writer Harold Sipe and artist Héctor Casanova, is a wonderfully biting satire along with a melancholy remembrance of a lost era all in one great package.
