Graphic Novel Review of Frankenstein, Agent of SHADE Vol. 1 by Jeff Lemire

Synopsis: "As a part of the acclaimed DC Comics—The New 52 event of September 2011, it's Frankenstein as you've never seen him before, in a dark new series from acclaimed writer Jeff Lemire and artist Alberto Ponticelli!Frankenstein is part of a network of strange beings who work for an even stranger government organization: The Super Human Advanced Defense Executive, also known as S.H.A.D.E. Leading his new field team, The Creature Commandos, Frankenstein and company must fight against supernatural threats even more strange and dangerous than themselves.

This volume collects issues 1-6 of Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E., part of the DC Comics—The New 52 event."

My Review: Now that is a comic book!! I was just going to pull it out and scan the pages last night since it was going to be the next graphic novel I read, but I just started reading and couldn't put it down! Awesome characters, story line and illustrations. Granted Frankenstein is one of my all time favorite novels and Dr. Frankenstein's creature is my absolute favorite fictional character so there is no way I couldn't love his character here. Father Time is awesome. I loved the dynamic between the characters. Honestly I could go on and on, but it boils down to I think this was awesome and I will be getting Vol. 2 as soon as possible.
My Rating: Four Paws and a Stump Wag all the way!! I can't rave about this one enough, so basically just go check it out.
