In Tears of the Leather-bound Saints, Casanova Frankenstein calls out the cruelty of capitalism and corporate greed, exorcises grim memories from his formative years, grapples with deep-seated anxieties over his blackness—and ultimately reveals the roots of his punk sensibility. A vulnerable work from a true comics outsider.
"This is amazing, daring, thoughtful, and highly memorable work that unquestionably deserves to be seen by as large an audience as possible." — Graphic Policy
"Frankenstein has rent his past with an axe, run it through a meat grinder, and lain its essence, flesh and blood, bone and gristle, upon the page. The result is compelling, savage beauty that pierces the heart and commands the mind." — First of the Month
"From its noir stylings to its gorgeously rough-hewn assemblage and presentation to its deliberately uneven rhyme and meter to its aura of perpetual and unending nightfall, this is singular stuff. So-called auteur comics at their most — I dunno, auteur-ish?" — Four Color Apocalypse
