Tom Stone stepped into Seward High and into Maria McBride's life like a bolt of lightning. He's the perfect guy for Maria--nice, smart, and well-built. There's just one problem: his family. Tom's father is the town's new funeral director, and business is booming. The bodies are piling up thick and fast in Persephone Falls, Alaska, so Dr. Stone keeps Tom up late at night working in the funeral home. And it's clear that Dr. Stone and his creepy assistant, Graves, don't want Maria around. Maria knows Tom was made for her. She's determined to find out what Dr. Stone has against her. When Tom refuses to stand up to his father, Maria begins to stitch together the clues...and finds out that the Stones are into recycling in ways she never could have imagined.
The cleverness continues in My Boyfriend Is A Monster #2: Made for Each Other. I wasn't anticipating an entirely different story. I was kind of hoping to find out of Dicey and Jack from part one survived the zombie apocalypse. But I was pleasantly surprised by this continuation of the Frankenstein story.
What happens when Frankenstein's monster starts making his own creations. Apparently he makes a thoughtful, compassionate, handsome young man named Tom. He also makes some other crazy, psycho creatures that weren't given a moral compass, so you know what that means. Lots of bloodshed and intrigue.
I never really got into the Frankenstein monster, besides the wonderful "Frank" in 1987s Monster Squad..."bogus". But this was a fun take on the story. The artwork is fantastic, and the stories are fun. What more can you ask for in monsters and comics?
