Frank proud of America. In election last night, four states approve gay marriage by popular vote. Frank's body constructed mostly from male parts, but Frank believe that if Frank want to marry monster with body also constructed mostly from male parts, should be Frank's Constitutional right. Frank, who was victim of job loss when Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. canceled last month, understand that economy was big issue in election, but civil rights equally important.
Next stage of battle for equality is monster rights, and Frank want let readers know about new Kickstarter campaign for Monstrology, 121 page, eight-page anthology that showcase monsters and show how monsters can not only be equal partners in storytelling formula, but also in citizenship.
According to Monstrology editor Scott O'Brien:
Everyone loves monsters but the unique nature of this project is that the Monsters are the driving theme of every story. These aren't about twist endings--though we have some--nor is it about a good scare or gore--we have those, too. These stories mix and match monster in new milieus that bring out new, and interesting twists on the monsters and their victims.
Frank applaud Monstrology efforts to champion equal rights for monsters in comics, and hope readers will check out Kickstarter and contribute. If not, Frank will come to readers home and strangle small child.
