Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Matt Kindt really breathed some new stuff to this series.

  2. So is this just Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in comic form?

    • Yes, the premise of the book is that Frankenstein’s monster is an agent of SHADE, an organization that combats monster/magical/technological threats to the world. His team includes a vampire, a werewolf, a mummy, and a woman similar to the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

      I was a little concerned that it would be too much like Hellboy and BPRD. Given my description above, you might think it is, but it’s a really fun book that I’ve been enjoying since the first issue.

    • The protagonist is a version of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein monster but the story is straight up superhero with a weird sci fi vibe.

  3. Dropped this a while ago but looks like I’ll be picking it back up since it’s tying into Rotworld with Swamp Thing & Animal Man!!

    • Welcome back! 🙂 This title is consistently one of my favorites to read each month; there is nothing else quite like it in DC’s lineup, and I have a blast with each issue.

  4. By the way…did anyone ever think that a book starring Frankenstein would outlive a Justice League title? These be crazy times we’re living in.

  5. This issue was quite epic. From the Franken-wolves to the Frank-through-the-ages, to the zany steampunk cyborgs. And with Frankenstein still alive there’s some awesome steampunk stories to be exploited. So much posibility with this character. I really hope it lasts another year or so, at the least.

  6. This is my pick of the week for me…Matt Kindt is really starting define this book.

  7. Just noted that Alberto Ponticelli is moving on to “Dial H” in December.

    Clearly, this doesn’t bode well for the future of this title, which is a real shame. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series & Alberto’s fine work therein, from the outset.
