‘Flashpoint’ Draws To A Close This Wednesday, And We Have Your ‘Frankenstein’ Preview!

As publisher DC Comics gets geared up to (re)launch their all new 52 next month, one could say that the publisher has their hands more than full as they make the mad dash to try and tie-up all the loose ends that come along with such a heavy-handed manuever. A perfect example of this is the extremely popular “FLASHPOINT” event, and beyond the break you can check out a 3 page preview of one of the stories’ many titles that will be ending this month with “FRANKENSTEIN AND THE CREATURES OF THE UNKNOWN” issue #3. Read on for the skinny…

“Upon the arrival of his long lost wife, Frankenstein agrees to join her in the ranks of S.H.A.D.E. (the Super Human Advanced Defense Executive), a highly secretive black ops super-agents team making their way to Europe to aid The Resistance. But first, the Creature Commandos will have to stop in Romania to find Nina’s father, the only person who might be able to save Griffith’s life after he is shot by a silver bullet.

When they arrive at their destination, the team finds that it is a village full of many extraordinary and misunderstood creatures being slaughtered by a menace stranger than they are. As time is running out to find Nina’s father, Frankenstein will have to triumph to take on his next mission: as an agent of S.H.A.D.E.”
