Franken Fran is, basically, Body Horror
distilled into a fine liquor, which has been used to breed an Eldritch Abomination
inside a vat full of the blood of the innocent, and that Eldritch Abomination
has been ground into a fine powder which you'll snort whilst being devoured alive by Chtulhu.
If you can stomach it, however, you'll find a perverse amount of Scenery Gorn
(or the human equivalent) sure to
terrify even the most ambitious
Nightmare Fetishist Death Seeker
, engaging stories, fascinating characters and enough High Octane Nightmare Fuel
to last you forever.
Franken Fran details the life of Fran Madaraki, artificially contructed 'daughter' of the mysteriously absent Miracle Surgeon Naomitsu Madaraki. A great deal of the horror of the series comes from the fact that Fran is capable and willing to perform surgery on a level beyond anything ever witnessed before - but has a completely alien perspective on life
, refusing to allow her
patients to die if
can be kept alive at all
. Obviously, this means high concentrations of Squick
, And I Must Scream
. However, you'll find yourself dragging on, Bile Fascination
or just pure horror dragging your eye over lavish illustrations of exposed organs, faces contorted in unspeakable anguish and horror, Fran's perpetual Glasgow Grin
similar in effect to the Wafer Thin Mint
and lots of completely irrelevant tankobon covers
that nicely help stomach the content.
Highly enjoyable, and with that I mean that the area of my brain containing these memories has committed suicide and I am glad for the fact that that human body automatically forgets most dreams.
