    Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #13 is a great example of how amazing a comic can be when a creative team is working in sync. It doesnt hurt that this issue ties into Rotworld which got off to an incredible start last week in Animal Man and Swamp Thing which, deservedly, got excellent remarks from my good friend Corey Fryia. For those of you who listened to our RCB Central Podcast this week (for those of you that didnt, go check it out!) I picked Frankenstein as the book Id recommend to people because I dont think theyre already reading it. Get on board with this amazing series! Read Full Review

    "Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E." #13 is a ridiculously fun mess of sword smashing and monster destruction. Ponticelli and the art team deliver a mesmerizing world of chaos and disrupted vision through which Frankenstein does what he does best: fight. This is an excellent example of the way a tie-in issue should be executed. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Oct 15, 2012

    I wanted to love this book and looked forward to its release. Unfortunately, I walked away with a lukewarm feeling to an issue that will probably become forgettable. Granted, it's the start to something larger and things could pick up, but as a beginning it does nothing to get me excited for what's to come. The art was as wonderful as before, but still can't save the book from an average story. Maybe I set myself up for a fall. Maybe things will get better. I really hope that's the case.

    This all might sound overly-harsh and like just so much nitpicking from a self-professed lover of this series. But it's because I've enjoyed Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. so much in the past that it makes me sad to see the easier road being taken on a crossover with such potential. I'm confident Kindt will make something of the current chaos, it'll just be hard to wait another month for some plot advancement. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 20pgs. too many ADs! . . While this is an abrupt start an issue, and for a new arc, It makes a great recap in Victor and a decent jump from #0. Kindt does a good job writing this quirky, funny series and in writing a "crossover" that stays its course on its own. The Rot effects the characters of SHADE via Victor being an avatar of Rot, leading Frank and crew to forge their own path before merging with AnimalMan & Swampy. Unfortunately, it leaves me wondering when and how they make the jump into rotworld,the future, or whatever. The artists do a nice job here and i especially liked the colors.
