War of the Monsters, Part 2: The Dissection of Nina Mazursky

Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #2 (2011-12)

The town overrun with monsters that we saw in the last issue is, it turns out, being invaded by extradimensional aliens. The villagers have, for centuries, been sacrificing children to appease the monsters. Not that it did any good, but the bloodthirsty alien monsters were amused by it. Now, though, their planet is dying, so the invasion has commenced. Frankenstein and company go through the portal, where they find Lady Frankenstein, doing battle on a planet positively teeming with monsters. Can't even see the ground: she's standing on top of them like a crowd-surfer.

This one's still in the 'has potential' category. The next few issues, when we should be learning more about the characters, will determine whether it's worth continuing.
