Gotham City Monsters #1
Gotham City Monsters #1, $3.99


Leviathan has dismantled S.H.A.D.E.-and that means Frankenstein is once again a free agent! Now he can set his sights on his former mentor, Melmoth, the one evil that got away. With bad things happening all across the Multiverse, this may be Frankenstein's last shot at setting things right. Of course, Melmoth has his own agenda, and it's going to take more than a lone monster to take him down. So Frankenstein heads to Gotham City in search of allies and recruits Killer Croc, Lady Clayface, Orca and vampire Andrew Bennett. But will even these dread creatures be enough to save humanity before the entire cosmos collapses in on itself?

Gosh, I... Comic Reader wanted to like this book. I love me some DC Frankenstein, but this book is so 90s it hurts more than Spawn #300 did. The usually dependable Joe Orlando has channeled his most verbose Chris Claremont dialogue and not in a good way at all. This is the most basic introduce characters to new readers by having them say and repeat their names and powers I've read since DC's Whos Who. As far as the story I in no way believe the main conceit that Bane would allow a Monstertown in the middle of City of Bane. Not at all. And unfortunately or fortunately if you love 90s comics (in particular mid 90s DC) Amancay Nahuelpan's art does not save the day. Along with Amancay, Trish Mulvihill's colors remind me of so much 50 cent bin fodder that I almost feel bad charging $3.99 for this book. Almost. If you miss 90s comics save your $4 and get 8 50 cent books instead. I.. Comic Book Reader bet you might like them better.

I give it 4 out of 10 Grahams
