Matt Kindt has done a really good job at stepping onto this book and maintaining its increasingly weird tone. I love the idea of ‘Leviathan’ the SHADE retirement community located inside of a giant whale-monster, it’s just so out there. Although, is it just me or are there too many Leviathans in comics these days? There’s the ones in Secret Warriors, Batman Inc, The Unwritten and now this book! Leviathan-overload! Alongside the madness, Kindt keeps the focus on character, and on Frankenstein in particular, as he struggles with who he is, and his monstrous nature, reminding us that Frankenstein is not his name, his name is ‘It’ or ‘The Monster’. I loved the little insert panels of the lives of his various parts before he died, it’s a great technique and it adds a lot of mystery and also sadness to the character. I wonder if we’ll be given more details about these scenes, or if they’ll remain cryptic? Ponticelli does his usual solid job on art, but it’s even more impressive when you consider he had an issue of Animal Man out last week!

I liked the idea of Leviathan too. In fact all of the new places introduced within the last few issues have been really cool -- I loved Untropolis as well. The neat new and strange places is one of the big things that has made this series a real treat to read so far.

Frank's expository dialogue and random flights of quotation and poetry are reasons to read this book all by themselves.

While I actually am reading a few books right now, this is one of only three that I get excited about every single month.

Leviathan is one of two Old Testament references that comic writers just love to use and re-use.
