Synopsis

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.
