I’ve liked Mary Shelly’s modern prometheus as a DC character since Grant Morrison’s Seven Solders maxi series, and while I’m disapointed that Morrison has nothing to do with this series, Lemire is doing an adequate enough job here. I’m still not the writer’s biggest fan, but because of the character of Frankenstein, I’ll keep coming back each month.
Art-wise, Ponticelli’s people aren’t to pretty to look at, but his action scenes are dynamic (especially the splash of our boy Frank leaping from a flying helicopter), and his panels are always fully realized, with almost no short-cut-plain-solid-color backgrounds to be found. His scenery and locations, along with his story-telling and direction, fully plant you in the world of these characters, and he knows when to push in close and when to pull back for effect.
My only complaint, art-wise, is in the coloring. Like issue #1 before it, this books’ color pallet seems to consist mainly of greens, blues and muted reds, where a more varied color scheme could make all of these monster characters shine.
