GOTHAM CITY MONSTERS #1 (of 6)

Leviathan has dismantled S.H.A.D.E.-and that means Frankenstein is once again a free agent! Now he can set his sights on his former mentor, Melmoth, the one evil that got away. With bad things happening all across the Multiverse, this may be Frankenstein’s last shot at setting things right. Of course, Melmoth has his own agenda, and it’s going to take more than a lone monster to take him down. So Frankenstein heads to Gotham City in search of allies and recruits Killer Croc, Lady Clayface, Orca and vampire Andrew Bennett. But will even these dread creatures be enough to save humanity before the entire cosmos collapses in on itself?

INGRID: Ronin Island is such a terrific concept, and a great setting for telling a story where ideals run face-first into the pragmatism of reality. Hana and Kenichi are smart, likable young people who boldly navigate through this hostile world they’ve found themselves dragged into. Truly this is magnificent book!
