    I can't say enough good things about this book. A great jumping on point and introduction to the character, wonderful art, everything is a win. It's an unusual concept, but everything works in my opinion and I'll be tracking down past issues to give them a look. I hope DC keeps this book going (I'm unaware of how sales are) because it would be a shame to see it cancelled. If everything remains this high quality for future issues I'll be adding it to my pull list. This outstanding zero issue of Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E. earns 5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    I am pumped for Frankenstein to get his hands (and his blade) dirty next month, when he joins Animal Man and Swamp thing in the Rotworld crossover event. I know there is a ton to catch up on, but I promise that all three of those series are worth your time and money. Rotworld is going to be jaw-dropping, please be there to experience it with the rest of us! Im very glad to have amazing talents like Matt Kindt and Alberto Ponticelli working together on this comic.

    While not as thrilling or bizarre as the standard series, Frankenstein Agent Of SHADE #0 is a really entertaining reboot of a classic character that solidifies his existence in the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    I'm pleased to see that the series hasn't suffered from the shift in writers, and I may have to add Frankenstein to my regular slate of New 52 books once again. Read Full Review

    This #0 is a suitable origin story and jumping on point for a new reader, but lacks the punch needed to hook them long term. There are better entry points into the series and characters -- the #1 issue from the initial New 52 launch or the first collected volume which is already available. Even Jeff Lemire's "Frankenstein" miniseries from the forgotten "Flashpoint" event has more bite to it and serves as a better introduction. Regular readers have the gaps filled in on Frank's origin, but since the necessary emotion isn't conveyed they'll likely walk away feeling the issue could have been summed up in a few pages. Still, for $2.99 it's a worthy choice but even Ponticelli's artwork may not be enough for this #0 to survive a future collection culling. Read Full Review
