    IGN - Poet Mase Jan 16, 2013

    In what was clearly an abortive nub of a new arc, Matt Kindt and his art team succeed in capturing my exact feelings about the end of Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. As a quick Creature Commandos story with attractive visuals, this book is a satisfying celebration of the entire series. As a manifestation of my smoldering frustration with the decisions of the powers that be, it's a comforting head nod to fans of the title. Read Full Review

    As last issues go, this one doesn't have much to wrap up or to spin out towards other horizons. All the same, Kindt gives Frankenstein and his crew a strong finale that serves as a precise representation of the book's characters and mission statement. February won't quite be the same as there will be a Frankenstein-shaped hole on the new comics rack. Hopefully, Frank continues to appear in "Justice League Dark." Maybe his team will find refuge elsewhere as well. Read Full Review

    This final issue doesn't blow the top off, but instead gives a respecting bow to the devoted readers to this series and indeed to the characters themselves. Kindt and Ponticelli wrap up this series in style and don't cheat us of one last entertaining story, making this one of the few DC series to have proceeded without a blemish since launch. This title will be missed. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Jan 22, 2013

    Kindt and Ponticelli close out the series with a self-contained issue that reiterates the basic idea of the comic while leaving room for more stories that probably won't happen. Awesome that DC gave this character a chance and awesome that it lasted 16 issues -- longer than some cancelled series in recent years that I liked more. Being a book published in the New 52, it's tempting to imagine how much better this could have been without the editorial baggage that it came with, but for that I always have the original Grant Morrison Seven Soldiers: Frankenstein to enjoy. Have you read that lately? It's bonkers. Read Full Review

    DC had a smart idea with this comic, and I'm sure the brain drain for their bigger series with the New 52 didn't help Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. any. But with a character that had such a small track record, sometimes a complete tonal shift isn't the right move for a character like Frankenstein " this was a character that only had four issues and got a huge following, a following which would have grown with more of that proven formula. Unfortunately, the all-new, all-quirky Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. has proven itself an experiment that never reached its full potential. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 20pgs. Cool cover. Mucho ADs! . . . A decent effort here that shows the crew going out in a blaze of badass. Unfortunately it shows no reaction or fallout to the Rot storyline, and leaves the romantic connection hanging. We don't see a bridge to the future or Frank's involvement in JLD. It would have been great for Frank to come full circle by addressing Victor, as unfinished business, and snuff him before he could even meet Arcane. So, maybe wasted opportunity, for the final issue but a fun read.
