Overview

Benjamin Franklinstein's most electrifying adventure yet

Victor Godwin and his very old friend, 200-year-old reanimated Benjamin Franklin, are back for more madcap fun! After releasing the Wright Brothers from the clutches of the nefarious Emperor, the pair are working with the dwindling members of the Promethean Underground to try to stop the Emperor altogether. But when new Infinity light bulbs are installed throughout Philadelphia, Ben and Victor realize they are emitting more than just light. It turns out that Thomas Edison's scientific genius has been hijacked as well, allowing the Emperor to brainwash just about everyone to do his evil bidding.

Zombies, mystery, and mayhem keep the pages turning in this hilariously quirky adventure, and the illustrations, puzzles and a fantastic interactive website extend the fun.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Tuxbury and McElligott liberally endow their tale with patent drawings, circuit and other diagrams, and like techno eye candy as well as such general silliness as a wizened Bad Guy who gets around in an ornately decorated bathtub. . . . Another entertaining foray into science both mad and real." — Kirkus Reviews
Kirkus Reviews
Closing a comical series' first story arc, America's two greatest inventors square off in a death match over the Emperor Napoléon's scheme to conquer the world…with science. Well, science of a sort. To the electrically preserved Franklin and his modern young cohorts Victor, Scott and Jaime, there's something fishy about the "Infinity Bulbs" that the strangely familiar "Ed Thomason" is passing out for free. Their suspicions are confirmed by the discovery of a gigantic, almost-complete "harmonic supertransmitter" in the bowels of the Infinity Unlimited factory--a device that, at the command of the megalomaniac Emperor, will turn everyone within reach of an Infinity Bulb into an obedient zombie. Tuxbury and McElligott liberally endow their tale with patent drawings, circuit and other diagrams, and like techno eye candy as well as such general silliness as a wizened Bad Guy who gets around in an ornately decorated bathtub. It spins through melodramatic twists and sudden reversals of fortune to an appropriately explosive climax that puts Ben out of action but (probably) leaves Napoléon at large for future episodes. Another entertaining foray into science both mad and real; new readers should start with the opener, though, to make sense of it all. (Sci-fantasy. 10-12)
