Yes- "Madman" by Mike Allred, published by Dark Horse. Older issues published by Kitchen Sink. Very fun and positive. The lead character, Madman, is named Frank Einstein. He knows he died and was brought back to life by another character in the series, a mad-scientist type, but he can't remember his previous life. Chock-full of wacky robots and hi-jinx, campy violence and gorgeous art.
