About the comic
“Frankenstein Superstar” is an adults-only funny webcomic about the Frankenstein Monster and his Bride (a smart, sexy Jewish woman) living in New York. The sources of humor are sex, marriage, pop culture, politics, New York lifestyles, and spoofs of classic movie monsters and superheroes trying to make it in our modern world.
The real Creature, created by “Doctor” Victor Frankenstein (and immortalised by Mary Shelley) in 1818. He may seem stupid for someone who’s walked the Earth for almost 200 years, but that’s because he’s missing half his brain material (a sort of self-medicated treatment for depression). For a time he cashed in on the famous Frankenstein name, endorsing cereals, starring in cartoons, TV shows, and movies, but like the rest of America, his finances have been drying up faster than a Gill Man in the desert. He needs to step up his game, find his path, and stomp the shit out of it with his size 16 Doc Martens. Is he up to it? “Me not know.”
Elsa Goldberg (Frankenstein’s Bride)
The Creature’s smart, sexy, shapely wife. In an effort to better understand her monster lover, and make some much needed cash, she works as a lab assistant for Monstromo, an evil chemical company, and is persuing her Masters in biochemistry.
Elsa’s tenant & sometimes girl-on-the-side, mother to Tyson Jr. and Venus, and part-time zombie hunter. Where does she come from? What is she doing here? I’m not going to ask her.

Lovecraft & Poe’s adopted 7 y/o daughter. Pushy, cute, and by the way, a werewolf.
