It took quite an imagination for the young Mary Shelley to conjure up the now 200-year-old study of medical/technological hubris known as “Frankenstein,” and it took an equally imaginative mind – Victor LaValle’s — to extend this legend into contemporary culture to make a statement about race in America, as he did in a fascinating comic book called “Victor LaValle’s Destroyer.”

LaValle’s horror stories are infused with messages and meanings, and will leave you not just scared or disturbed, but thinking.
