Odd, unconvincing story which - at least - has a very surprising ending. 4/10

  Frankenstein attempts to rip the robots arm off. Frank rolls a critical hit, the arm is ripped off.

The robot attempts to kill Frankenstein, but rolls a 1. The robot instead engages in a casual conversation with Frank.

Frank attempts to finish off the robot, but rolls a 1. Instead, he caresses the robots face and apologizes for ripping his arm off.

The robot attempts to stab Frank in the back, but somehow rolls a 1 again. Instead his good hand grabs Frank's hand and they quickly become friends if not more.

Please educate yourself of the dangers of rolling consecutive 1's.

  Okay, I didn't see that ending coming. Still an ugly mess of a book though.

  I'm having a hard time figuring this story arc out, or whether I should put the energy into caring. This is all over the place.

2 stars.

  There is a lot to like in this issue. The intrigue (who is Rainbow?) and the existential ponderings of not only Adam (I prefer to call him that) but the Berzerker seem to be Moench's attempt at reaching for the literature ring the way Starlin, McGregor and Gerber have been trying.

Three stars. The best issue in this arc, so far.
