    You can have your simmering dramas and high-concept plots; for my money, Lemire's go-for-broke, wild and wacky monster tales are just about the funnest reading around. Read Full Review

    If you have doubts, allow me to reiterate: monsters, robots and Goddamned War Wheels. Read Full Review

    Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. might not be Jeff Lemire's best work in the New 52 relaunch (that honor goes to Animal Man, obvi). But it's still an incredibly entertaining series that deserves your attention. Much like Paul Cornell's Demon Knights, Frankenstein tackles characters and subject matter you won't find anywhere else in the DC catalogue. For that reason alone, it should be on your pull list.

    One of the nicest surprises of the DC relaunch has been "Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E." and its focus on absurd ideas and an action-driven story. It's appropriate that, next month, it will enter into a short crossover with "O.M.A.C." since both comics share a similar sensibility. Read Full Review

    This issue wasn't bad, in any regard. It just was not on par with the previous three issues that Lemire and Ponticelli have given us. Read Full Review

    But alas, scripts alone don't make comics. They're a two-way street " heck, it's more like a six-way street if you think about penciling, inking, coloring, lettering and editing, not to mention all the other thankless work that goes into production, printing and selling the books. With a different art team on board, like a Doug Mahnke or a Patrick Gleason, Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. could be the next sleeper hit of the DC Universe. Right now, however, it's a book of good intentions that never quite reaches its full promise. Read Full Review
