Frankenstein’s creator lies dead in the icy grip of the Arctic, and the monster searches for a new purpose. Just as he thinks he’s found one with a group of unlikely companions, disaster strikes—and the monster is catapulted out of Mary Shelley’s novel and into the world of Hellboy.
In the leadup to the celebrated series Frankenstein Underground, the “monster” Frankenstein continues his journey northward. Still trapped between the weight of his guilt and desire for redemption, Frankenstein may have to choose once and for all when an encounter with the crew of an icebound ship leads him into danger on the ice!
Pursuing his humanity in the unlikely company of arctic adventurers, the “monster” Frankenstein unwittingly becomes the pawn of an ancient cult! Meanwhile, unbeknownst to him, he’s been recognized as Viktor Frankenstein’s creation by a powerful local man whose influence might see him arrested… or worse!
Frankenstein discovers that one of his shipmates has been using him for his own selfish gain. Meanwhile, a mysterious artifact pulled from the arctic ice begins to exert its dark influence on Demmings, awakening the machinations of an ancient cult.
This time, the undead may truly come undone.
Just as Frankenstein begins to feel a sense of camaraderie with his companions, a dark force reveals itself and threatens to consume them. Demmings’ dark mask enacts its deadly plan, and all that stands between humanity and the darkness he wished for so long is Frankenstein!
