I don’t read OMAC so I only really got half of the story here, but I enjoyed it all the same, even if, from my perspective, Frankenstein just attacked a big blue dude for no reason. The fight was well done and Lemire managed to use it to further his own storylines, so we get a deepening distrust between Frankenstein and Father Time, as well as a re-iteration that ‘the world is getting weirder’ and that’s why SHADE is better than Checkmate. I continue to really like the strange dichotomies in Frank’s character, he has a bloodlust and wants to chop shit up with his sword, but he also has a deep melancholy within him, it’s a different take on this sort of super-strong character and it’s very interesting. Oh yeah, and should also mention the very cool comparison of Frank saying ‘Father’ and OMAC saying ‘Brother’, it made for a great moment. Maybe I’ll try and find a copy of OMAC #5 to get the full story, but I doubt it, Didio scares me away.
