    There are some great moments within this book, and a wonderfully heartfelt ending that showcases one of the things that makes this series so great. It's crazy and zany, sure, but it also has heart. Read Full Review

    It takes a special writer to pull off an old-school monster book in the comics industry nowadays. While it's sad to see Lemire transfer that talent to Justice League Dark, at least we won't be deprived of our monthly servings of his work. Read Full Review

    The art from Alberto Ponticelli does a lot to bring Lemire’s story to life. You can tell he’s having fun coming up with all these Rot creatures as well putting some real psychopathic faces onto Frankenstein. Ponticelli has a great eye for action and movement as well some nice panel layouts. Sadly, #9 is Jeff Lemire’s end run as he has jumped over to Justice League Dark. Let’s hope the future scribe manages to keep the joy, humanity and general weirdness of the series alive. Read Full Review

Lemire has done a great job of tempering out the insane concepts and dark nature of the book with the truly three-dimensional portraits of the characters. This issue opens up our lead character and leaves you caring. Read Full Review
