O.M.A.C. #5

Max Lord and Sarge Steel decide that in order to capture O.M.A.C., sacrifices will have to be made. They go back to the location of O.M.A.C.’s first appearance and target the workers on Kevin Kho’s floor, including Kevin and all his friends.

Meanwhile, since O.M.A.C. is still on the loose, S.H.A.D.E. decides to send in their top agent, Frankenstein, to succeed where Checkmate has failed.

This epic storyline continues in this month’s FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E. #5!

  1. Not sure if I want to buy Frankenstein cause I didn’t like it when I tried it out the first time. But if this issue kicks ass, which it should, I might not have a choice.

  2. I’m loving Frankenstein, but dropped this after first issue. I’m going to get this though.

  3. Haha, in contrast to both comments above, I’ve been loving both OMAC and Frankenstein and am totally amped for this.

  4. OMAC week is the best week! I didn’t like Frankenstein at first, but it grew on me. I just had to get used to Ponticelli’s art.

    Also, I now have a new desktop image.

  5. Can i make this my Pick of the Week, right NOW?! I just have a feeling it will be. lol

  6. Frank & OMAC are two of my favorite books right now, superfun.superscience.

  7. I thought I’d check this thread to see what camps there were. Very interesting. I love Frankenstien, but it doesnt look like if you like one your automatically like the other.

    I read Lwmire saying you can read one without the other, so I think I’ll just stick to Frankenstein for now

  8. I’ve been meaning to jump back into FRANKENSTEIN and this crossover is as good an excuse as any!

  9. Thats a migty fine uppercut there. This is going to be fantastic.

  10. You know you’re a geek when you’re drooling in anticipation of reading this crossover!

    I’m a geek and I’m proud! 😀

  11. Could this be the best DC title right now? It’s close….but it definitely wins as the most fun comic on the stands right now.

    5/5 (POTW)

  12. Best editor’s note EVER.

  13. Perfect – My Pick of the Week!

  14. This book just gets better and better. I think this is the best issue yet. Only book I’ve read so far, and fuck it, pick of the week. Nothing is topping this.

  15. i’m curious what input Jeff Lemire had in this, he’s listed in the interior credits…Franky dialogue perhaps?

    • Considering that this is part 1 of a 2-part crossover with his Frankenstein title, I would expect that he had a healthy dose of plotting at the very least. Plus those S.H.A.D.E. query dialogue boxes looked spot on with how they read in Frankenstein.

  16. I just love reading OMACTIVATE…I think Frankie handed OMAC a ass whooping. Another FUN issue..
