Read full description of the books:
In Hellboy: House of the Living Dead, Hellboy fought Frankenstein in 1956 Mexico - this book picks up Frankenstein’s story directly afterwards while continuing to incorrectly call him by his creator’s name! Frankie stumbles into an underground kingdom ruled by a demon-possessed sorcerer who’s enslaved innocent ghosts - Frankenstein to the rescue!
Frankenstein Underground is an ok book. Anyone can pick it up and understand what’s going on but long-time fans of Mike Mignola will also notice the Easter Eggs he’s throwing in. Besides House of the Living Dead, there are references to the BPRD books Hollow Earth, The Universal Machine (amazing - highly recommended), and the Hell on Earth series.
I just wish there was more complexity to Mignola’s stories. They always seem to be about a strong man character who punches some monsters before listening to the villain’s lengthy expository speech and then punching him - the end. The formula is too noticeable at this point, at least to someone who’s been reading Mignola for years - newer readers might not be as bothered.
Nevertheless, Frankenstein Underground is certainly readable and Ben Stenbeck’s art is fantastic though it’s not the most compelling read if you’re familiar with Mignola’s storytelling style.

Read information about the authorMike Mignola was born September 16, 1960 in Berkeley, California and grew up in nearby Oakland. His fascination with ghosts and monsters began at an early age (he doesn't remember why) and reading Dracula at age 13 introduced him to Victorian literature and folklore from which he has never recovered.
In 1982, hoping to find a way to draw monsters for a living, he moved to New York City and began working for Marvel Comics, first as a (very terrible) inker and then as an artist on comics like Rocket Raccoon, Alpha Flight and The Hulk. By the late 80s he had begun to develop his signature style (thin lines, clunky shapes and lots of black) and moved onto higher profile commercial projects like Cosmic Odyssey (1988) and Gotham by Gaslight (1989) for DC Comics, and the not-so-commercial Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser (1990) for Marvel. In 1992, he drew the comic book adaptation of the film Bram Stoker's Dracula for Topps Comics.
In 1993, Mike moved to Dark Horse comics and created Hellboy, a half-demon occult detective who may or may not be the Beast of the Apocalypse. While the first story line (Seed of Destruction, 1994) was co-written by John Byrne, Mike has continued writing the series himself. There are, at this moment, 13 Hellboy graphic novel collections (with more on the way), several spin-off titles (B.P.R.D., Lobster Johnson, Abe Sapien and Witchfinder), three anthologies of prose stories, several novels, two animated films and two live-action films staring Ron Perlman. Hellboy has earned numerous comic industry awards and is published in a great many countries.
Mike also created the award-winning comic book The Amazing Screw-on Head and has co-written two novels (Baltimore, or, the Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire and Joe Golem and the Drowning City) with best-selling author Christopher Golden.
Mike worked (very briefly) with Francis Ford Coppola on his film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), was a production designer on the Disney film Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) and was visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). He lives somewhere in Southern California with his wife, daughter, a lot of books and a cat.
