9 is probably the most interesting (and perhaps least funny) issue yet, with a real sense that things are coming together. And not just between this book and Stormwatch
(although I think there are some big clues here on that front): anyone interested in the new contacts between the old Vertigo-verse (particularly Sandman
and one of its spin-offs) might want to read this issue.
The last two Frankenstein
issues were also good, with 9 crossing over with Animal Man
. The art, particularly the lay-outs, continue to impress me.
