This was a damn good issue of Frankenstein, perhaps the best so far, which is great, but also a shame since Lemire is leaving the title soon. Let’s hope Matt Kindt can deliver stories as good as this one. Frank and Lady Frank head to Castle Frankenstein to find their son, whom they had thought to be dead. The events of this issue really were tragic, I felt for Frank a lot, it really got to the underlying tragedy of his existence. He’s a monster, and any happiness he has, like being a father is taken away from him because of it. It was interesting to see the differing reactions from Frankenstein and his wife to the death of their son, Lady Frankenstein quits SHADE in disgust, but Frank stays, the team is the only thing he’s got. I also liked what happened in this issue with Ray Palmer, he also quits SHADE, are we finally going to see the Atom in the new DCU? Alberto Ponticelli continues to be great on art too, I think the slicker inks of Walden Wong have really improved the look of this book. Next issue looks like being a lot of fun, as Lemire drops Frankenstein into the events of his other title, Animal Man. A good way for him to bow out I think.
