Dr. Herbert West
I was thrilled when I saw that Dynamite Entertainment’s new Reanimator was basing the Herbert West character more on the mad scientist from the original H.P. Lovecraft stories. The first issue was a fun introduction, sticking close to the characterization while also bringing Dr. West into modern times. Is the second issue as fresh or does it need a jolt of life?
