Spoiler Alert: Frankenstein killed Hitler
Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown is a bit different than the other Flashpoint tie-ins. Frankenstein and his crew were put into suspended animation after WWII, in which Frankenstein killed Adolf Hitler, and they all awake in 2011 to a world that is new and different. Plus, ANOTHER Batman villain dies.
The GoodPeace out Hitler! I'm always in favor for Hitler dying in a comic, especially if the person killing him is Frankenstein. Now, I still haven't read Seven Soldiers, and I've never been the biggest Frankenstein fan, in any form of fiction, but I loved everything about this issue. Jeff Lemire, sets the story and issue up very well. We get a great background on this team, where they're from, and where they're supposedly going. The writing flows well, and characters I wasn't previously interested in have become characters I'm dying to know more about.
The art in this issue is awesome. Much like the Flashpoint tie-in Citizen Cold, the art is soft, but the colors really pop out. Ibraim Roberson did the art in this issue, and Pete Pantazis was on colors. I loved the variety of characters in this issue. It wasn't just a bunch of heroes in spandex, it was a monster party. I was very skeptical about this issue, but now I'm hooked for the whole mini-series. I'd love to see how these guys play a role in Flashpoint!
