    I hope everyone picked up Frankenstein Undone #2 today. Comics are back!

    I had a lot of fun reviewing this one.

    While I liked the issue on an artistic level I didn't care for this one as much plot-wise. The visual, subtextual journey from creature to man was well done but the actual journey seemed to lack a real sense of motivation and seemed to happen more as a convenience to quickly get Frankenstein from point A to point B because B is where the story really is than in a natural progression. And the interactions with the crew really highlighted that, here's a giant, misshapen guy in a wolf's pelt wandering out of the frozen wastes and not a single soul recoils in fear? Why isn't there any mistrust? The answer? Because that would slow things down and we wouldn't have gotten to Hyperboria in time for issue three.
    I'm really hoping issue three goes back to the beauty of issue one, that first introduction was so perfect in every way which really made the haste of this issue stand out in stark contrast.

    There's a pandemic. All comics are having serious production issues.

    I'm just saying it's had a run of bad luck in what seemed like a humorous way.

    This may be worth a new thread but I will leave that up to the mods. The Dark Horse website doesn't have any recently released titles from Mignolaverse or Mignola/Goldenverse. I see a schedule beginning in Sept. in the Allie thread but nothing previous is on there. My local shop closed during the initial shutdown so i'm not sure what I've missed. Frankenstein Undone 2 is not there that I can find. What else has been released since the 'reopening' if anything? Lady Baltimore and/ or Return of Effie Kolb?

    With only a few scattered exceptions, from April to August Dark Horse is unable to release standard issues due to the pandemic. Virtually all issues have been delayed by six months from their original schedule. Frankenstein Undone and The Last Knight of St. Hagan have been cancelled after Mignola said he would no longer work with Scott Allie.

    Cancelled completely, or cancelled solicitations?

    Cancelled completely. Ben Stenbeck and Brennan Wagner mentioned it.

    The only thing that was released between April–August was Frankenstein Undone #2.

    The upcoming stories are:
    • Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Return of Effie Kolb #2 (Oct. 28, 2020)
    • Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club (Nov. 11, 2020)
    • Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: Her Fatal Hour and The Sending (Dec. 2, 2020)


    However, these haven't been resolicited yet, so the dates may change.

    Damn, that's crazy that they are canceled outright

    Yeah, why doesn’t Mongolia just re write that shit? It’d be a blessing in disguise. Allie never had any business writing comics, anyway.

    Too bad for Frankenstein Undone... At least I have issues #1-2...

    Could the storyline of The Last Knight of St. Hagan be remade with another person instead? I was looking forward to this story.
