While fleeing the city via the Northways Bridge one of his freakish creations turned on him and they both plunged to their deaths.

An unusual story on many fronts. The second criminal to be called Frankenstein and the second story to put a modern slant on the classic tale. In true Dredd fashion the criminal comes to his own sticky end. At the start of the second part there is a preview panel taken from later in the story. At the start of the third part the last panel of the previous Prog is reproduced as a recap. An odd occurrence.
