Quite awful. Two horrendous lead characters, and a ridiculously OTT reaction to the monster from everyone else. Painful to read. 2/10

  Abusive man, shallow woman, boring monster. There was nothing redeeming about this one.

  This was horrible. The whole concept and plot stunk.

  Kind of a pointless tale. It's mainly about characters we neither know nor care about, and the monster pretty much ends in the same place it began..."dead".
Is it just me or does Frankie look like the Zombie on the cover?

  Sooo being frozen in ice for hundreds of years made Frankie bulletproof and as strong as Hulk?

  Wow, such a dark and brutal story. Really, nobody came out looking particularly good here, least of all poor Tisha. But there's no explanation as to how the carnival got the monster in the first place. And that "unknown serum" used to first animate the monster must have some connection with Dr. Erskine's Super Soldier Serum, not to mention the original Torch.

2 stars. Crazy couple. He slaps her in one panel, and three panels later they're having sex. Gotta love that Marvel misogyny.....not!

  Did I say this was the interesting part of last issue? I stand corrected.

  When I sneak out at night to go over to the local carnival in order to burn down an exhibit, I do it in my underwear.
