In this preview of DC's Frankenstein, a vampire with a machine gun needs no introduction

One of our favorite comics to come out of DC's New 52 relaunch was Jeff Lemire and Alberto Ponticelli's Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E., a gleefully deranged horror/science fiction/espionage hybrid starring a poetic patchwork monster and his crack squad of paramilitary monsters. Here's an exclusive preview of the third issue, in which Frankenstein and his team get swamped by a living tide of skittering exoskeleton.

This issue hits stores Wednesday, November 09, 2011. Here's the issue synopsis and you can read our recent interview with Lemire about all things Frankenstein here:

Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #3
Written by Jeff Lemire
Art by Alberto Ponticelli
Cover by J.G. Jones

Frankenstein and The Creature Commandos crash-land on the invading alien planetoid and all-out mayhem ensues, but nothing can prepare them for the coming of The Titans of Monster Planet! And just when they thought things couldn't get worse, Father Time receives a troubling message from his past.
