    I think Tobin and Susini are going for gonzo, but Made Men just comes off sloppy and dumb. In a funny bit of synchronicity for me, I had just finished Junji Ito's adaptation of Frankenstein the day before, and not having read the back cover of this book, I was unaware that it too was related to Shelley's novel when I snatched it randomly off my shelf of library books. It seems that the protagonist, Jutte (Jootee? Yootah? Not sure how you'd pronounce it.) is a descendant of Victor Frankenstein's s I think Tobin and Susini are going for gonzo, but Made Men just comes off sloppy and dumb. In a funny bit of synchronicity for me, I had just finished Junji Ito's adaptation of Frankenstein the day before, and not having read the back cover of this book, I was unaware that it too was related to Shelley's novel when I snatched it randomly off my shelf of library books. It seems that the protagonist, Jutte (Jootee? Yootah? Not sure how you'd pronounce it.) is a descendant of Victor Frankenstein's smarter and previously unmentioned sister, Cecilia. When she and her team of fellow police officers are ambushed, she uses her family secrets to literally put them back together for revenge. (The subtitle is the best part of the book.) There's plenty of sex and violence, but little sense and no ending. And since no issue #6 has come out since #5 was published in January of 2018, and the publisher didn't label this a volume 1, I'm not too sure an ending will ever come. Well, no big loss. You know, I'm generally against all the endless copyright extensions fueled by Disney and other large corporations to protect their intellectual properties, but junk like this could certainly be used as an argument against letting works go into the public domain. Why do creators keep rehashing something Mary Shelley did 200 years ago instead of coming up with something wholly original? Anyhow, I love Tobin's Bandette series, but this book and The Complete Colder Omnibus make me leery of picking up anything of his that does not include Colleen Coover in the future.

    [advance review copy] This pulled me right in from the beginning and was pretty interesting all the way through. Lots of violence and sex, almost to a ridiculous degree, in my opinion. It called a bit too much attention to itself as opposed to feeling like it's a part of the story. Still, it's an interesting concept with interesting characters.

    It's so like. aggressively sex positive? which I guess is good but god is it wearing. Every (well, both since there are only really 2 who are adults and like. flesh out characters) female character is constantly like "did you know that WOMEN love to FUCK woah sexual liberation amirite" which is fine but like. god. gets boring fast.

    Of all the Frankenstein comic book adaptations featuring pretty kick ass women, this is my favourite. I really, really, really want some more. It’s clever, bloody, and sex-positive. And was that Jutte’s “cousin” that I saw? Bet you $1

    Made Men is a unique gem, where you have an awesome arsenal of the X-factors but everything failed to come together. If you ever wonder how good ideas can go wrong, go no further.

    Made Men has a fine concept (Frankenstein descendant can bring the dead back to life), but it's 60% sarcasm-laced dialogue, 30% sex scenes, and maybe 10% cool sci-fi weirdness. Jutte (Joot?) is the main character here, a former cop who, after being murdered and self-resurrected, is now working on hunting down her killers. But the killer hunting is really just a side plot to talking about killer hunting, which, as you can imagine, is deathly boring, even with Paul Tobin's above average writing sk Made Men has a fine concept (Frankenstein descendant can bring the dead back to life), but it's 60% sarcasm-laced dialogue, 30% sex scenes, and maybe 10% cool sci-fi weirdness.

I'll probably skip future volumes, even though this one cuts off mid-story.

    Made Men is wild. Copious sex scenes and gore. Plenty of action in a fantastical setting. The unpredictability gives you whiplash in a good way, I think. Loving the series so far and looking forward to reading more!
