I'm really enjoying this book. Also, Faucher has been the best inker for Ponticelli (even better than Ponticelli himself on his own inks!) so far in the series.
Comics were happier before the Internet turned writing superhero stories into fruitless attempts to impress/entertain a small group of ppl who appear to hate comics and their creators.
This series kicks all kinds of major ass! I'm glad I jumped on board!
I just finished reading #11 and loved it. Kindt's first arc looks to be headed in the right direction. I really enjoy these flashbacks Frank is experiencing throughout the issue. Slowly unraveling his past provides his character with more depth in my opinion. I also really enjoy the art team of Ponticelli & Faucher and hope they keep these two on for a long time. Faucher really sharpens Ponticelli's work and some of the close ups of Frank are great. Another aspect of the book I really enjoy are the locations. Last week we had a great one and now Frank finds himself in a small town located inside a Leviathan. I love it! One thing I was curious about in this issue was the statement that Frank made about how he's been having visions of his past ever since Khalis was decapitated. I wonder what Khalis has to do with his visions? One speculation is that Father-Time brought Khalis onto the team to maybe help control Frank or keep his past from him for some reason and with Khalis out of commission then Frank's memories started coming back. Also, at the end of this issue Father-Time asks Belroy if Khalis has arrived in the Leviathan which possibly implies that Khalis will be able (or at least attempt) to stop Frank from killing the Leviathan. Anyway, just a thought. I'm looking forward to #12 and can't wait for #0 when he get closer look into Frank's origin.

Pull List: Transformers, Darth Vader, Superior Spiderman, Forever Evil.
Need to start reading this title.
Does Frankenstein still quote Milton?
"You can't trust them as poets either. The true poet is anonymous, as to his habits, but these boys have to look, act, and apparently smell like poets"
Flannery O'Connor on the beats.
Though tthis was a good issue. Was nice getting a look inside Frank's head and seeing what happens to retired Shade agents.
Kindt is totally killing it on this. So much more inventive and outlandish and layered than what Lemire was doing (and I enjoyed Lemire's take).
We basically got a story EMBEDDED in a story this issue. Just awesome.
Check out my New Blog! Just a random assortment of ideas, thoughts, and reviews!
I must be the only one who likes the series less since Kindt took over. I think it's still really well written and it's a potentially interesting direction he's taking it, but I liked the mindless fun of the Monster Dimension. I want my Frankenstein to be shooting and stabbing things, not delving into an existential void.
It's still on my pull list though.
The series is still rocking! Hopefully it's not getting cancelled with Franky joining the cast of JLD in the near future. I want double the dose of Frankenstien!
Am I the only person missing Ray Palmer tho? Is he going to return to the series or does DC have something else planned for him? Is he going to be the Atom of Earth 2?
Glad to hear the book hasn't missed a beat since Lemire left!
