Welcome aboard new writer MATT KINDT! • “SATAN’S RING” begins here! FRANKENSTEIN and THE CREATURE COMMANDOS must investigate suspected double-agents in SHADE field offices.

    Given what we've seen in these first twenty pages of Kindt's tenure, I'd say Frankenstein has some great adventures coming up. This issue makes the start of a new arc and deliverable from a new writer extremely worthwhile. If you've been waiting for a chance to check this book out, now's the time. No need to wait until a zero issue. Read Full Review

    Alberto Ponticelli’s art is first rate. This guy blends his own modern style with that of the old Creepy comics and horror books. Everything is surreal, just off center enough to be sure we know it’s not of this world. Ponticelli’s eye for movement really comes through with issue 10. So much of the issue is fighting or falling or fighting while you’re falling. Without an ability to bring that action off the page, Frankenstein Agent of SHADE just would not work. Thus far, this is one of my favorite DC titles. Lets hope that Matt Kindt keeps up his flair for good writing. Read Full Review

    Alberto Ponticelli's art is as good, as usual. However, from issue to issue, even with that same inker on board, his line work seems to go from thick to light. Last issue had more weight, slightly heavier in the lines and shadows. This issue is lighter; sketchier. None of it looks poorly done, but I preferred his art last issue. His detail work, however, is as good as ever in this issue. The upside down city looks great, even if it is a little confusing at times. Read Full Review

    Ultimately Alberto Ponticelli's art is worth the $2.99 price tag for me. I love all the sci-fi action, characters facial expressions, and cloud traveling (with cloud jets!).I first heard about Ponticelli in 2011 when he was drawing IDW's Godzilla: Gangsters & Goliath mini-series, which I absolutely loved. Seeing these larger than life monsters come to life and destroying Tokyo really made me admire him as a artist, also John Layman (Chew) writing it made me love this series even more. Regardless, if you like Ponticelli art definitely check out IDW's Godzilla: Gangsters & Goliath mini-series. Read Full Review

    Granted, I came into this with grave doubts about Kindt's ability to prop this title up after Lemire left, but it's disappointing nonetheless to be proven mostly correct. Well on its way to Drophood. Read Full Review
