    With great characters, a solid story and perfectly fitting artwork, Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. remains one of DC's best books coming out of the New 52. If you haven't bought into it yet, please correct that error in judgment. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Nov 10, 2011

    The "Monster Planet" idea is similar to the "fighting the moon" arc in Stormwatch, and I think that a S.H.A.D.E./Stormwatch crossover could be a TON of fun (make it happen, Cornell and Lemire!). What am I saying? This book is already a ton of fun. Read Full Review

    If you need a spoonful of pure, unadulterated fun that never once crosses over into the thoughtless, pick this title up. I will be crushed if this title doesn't last for at least a few years to come, so don't disappoint me! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 10, 2011

    This third part of the "War of the Monsters" story is busy, exciting, and mind-blowing. Lemire and Ponticelli have made a strong case for this book to climb up the pile in my stack of books to read. This title is the one DC title I look forward to the most from the second week of the month releases and so far, it's delivered on my expectations. The best part? It's zany enough that any reader can jump in at any point and simply enjoy it for the supernaturally tinged, horror-flavored action adventure big screen romp that it truly is. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Nov 9, 2011

    It's hard to review this series without comparing it to HELLBOY, and I believe DC's counting on that when it markets the title. They're essentially the same formula: big monster guy fights with other monster guys as part of a paranormal organization that deals with threats of a weird nature. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Nov 13, 2011

    It pains me to say this, but this title just isn't interesting. I am a pretty big fan of Jeff Lemire's work, but his skill as a writer doesn't seem to be coming through here. It's almost as if he's trying too hard for Frankenstein and company to be crazy and exciting, and it doesn't feel genuine. I've tried to give this title a fair shake, but I think this is it for me.
