Review – Flashpoint: Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown #1

Submitted by on July 13, 2011 – 8:20 pmNo Comment

Flashpoint: Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown #1
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artists: Ibraim Roberson (pencils, inks), Pete Pantazis (colorist)

Frankenstein, frozen in snow, was uncovered during a firefight between American and German soldiers in 1942. Coming to, and sensing great evil still exists after his more than a century on ice, he ultimately aligns himself on the side of the Americans. After having been involved in the war effort for about a year, Frankenstein is brought together with similar beings of his nature. With these other lab created beings from Project M, Frankenstein has a hand in ending the war in Europe. Returning to Metropolis and Project M in 1946 he is greeted with less than a hero’s welcome.

Nice story, nice setup, nice dialogue on this one. There’s bound to be some comparisons to Captain America/Hellboy here, but who cares? If you like the idea of those creations then you’ll probably enjoy Frankenstein. Throw in a one-page tribute to Sgt. Fury (I’m getting more Fury than Rock, here — but maybe that’s just me) and you’ve got a winner. Looking forward to seeing how the story progresses across Frankenstein’s connection to two characters across two generations. Bonus scene: Project 6 and Project M apparently housed in the same facility (see Project Superman #1). Recommended.
