not quite sure what this is besides me playing around with some ink wash and white out. i kept thinking about the black orchid while drawing this and how great a series it was. (the Stan Woch, Jill Thompson, Rebecca Guay version of Black Orchid) so maybe there's ahint of some of that in there, and i've been reading old swamp thing too of course. i dunno.

This is a one shot issue I picked up mainly because I like the artist, Ig Guara, and how can you go wrong with a standalone issue? This is a fantastically creepy comic that makes Gorilla Grodd absolutely terrifying. We get a peak inside the mind of a real horror, someone who lives for violence and evisceration. The scenes in this book made me shudder and cringe, and not just gore, but the philosophy of Grodd.
Now some people are saying that the DC books over the summer "don't count" because come September everything starts over. If you use that excuse and pass this book over, you will be missing out, because DC is showing us the heart of their line. DC is showing us that what changes on the cover is not why we keep coming back, no, it is what stays the same.

Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown #1
Wait, a review? Since when do I have reviews on here? This is something I've been toying with in my head, and truthfully I really want to see this book succeed when September rolls around. So no spoilers, nor a page by page detail of what happens here, no that is why you go buy a comic for yourself, to read and enjoy it. I love Jeff Lemire's work, Sweet Tooth, his Atom story, the Nobody, Essex County, Superboy...well not so much there, sorry Jeff. With Frankenstein I wasn't sure what was coming along when I first heard about the mini-series, but now with all the details released about the renumbering of DC books and and the inclusion of Frankenstein as an ongoing series, still by Jeff Lemire I couldn't stop myself from getting this book. Ibraim Roberson and his colorist Pete Pantazis have nailed down a slick look really draws you into the world, and keeps pace with the story. And if the cover picture of some Nazis getting stomped on doesn't tell you, then let me: THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!
Myself I am not too familiar with the DC version of Frankenstein, but this is not the normal DC universe, but the world of Flashpoint, so everything is different anyways. Right away we are introduced to Frankenstein and how he meets the rest of his team. None of these sequences feel put on or contrived, but natural, at least as natural as you can be when you are stitched together from the bodies of the dead and are meeting a werewolf, a vampire and weird mutant fish girl. The Nazis get stomped, as you might have gathered from the cover image and we find out that is just the begining for Frankenstein and his new teammates. A fantastic read that I can't wait to see more of. Plus you get a free button with a silly picture of Frankenstein on it, I love buttons and giveaways that DC puts out. I still have my Invisibles pin and a Vote for Lex pin, so y'know. It's only $2.99 to try out, so go give it a try!
