This week’s TFWatch entries are all notable for their especially grotesque natures…unfortunately.

The cover to my copy of Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #2

Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #2 tells us the tragic origin of Agent Mazursky. We get some pretty good shots and transitions of her going from human woman to aquatic creature, but they are not especially flattering. Appropriate for the tone of the comic, though. And there are only two fleeting – and distant – images of the four-armed Bride, meaning that the cover is the best thing about this issue. Also, probably the last issue I am picking up.

The cover to my copy of Spider Island: Heroes For Hire #1

Spider Island: Heroes For Hire #1 promises a multi-armed Black Cat and Electra on the front and…doesn’t deliver. Those with a flavor for male transformation will be pleased with the spider transformation and screen-time of Paladin, but the only female transformation doesn’t really appear until the last few pages as Misty Knight gains some back-legs and extra eyes. Which are gross. So, yeah…cover is the only good thing here.

The cover to my copy of Wonder Woman #1

I know, I know, I’m a little late with Wonder Woman #1, but I only just bought my copy. In this issue two beheaded horses grossly transform into an unattractive centaur and centauress, a bird-like Hermes shows up, and a mysterious man makes three sexy young women become floating prophets…then burns them up into bones. Not hot.
