We at Comics Nexus know that reading solicits can be hazardous to the avoiding of spoilers in comics, so in our continuing effort to endeavor to help make your comic reading as enjoyable as possible, we’ll be taking a look at Marvel and DC’s solicits each month, and posting those with spoilers separately for those with interest… and so those of you who don’t want to know can properly avoid these.

Max Lord and Sarge Steel decide that in order to capture O.M.A.C., sacrifices will have to be made. They go back to the location of O.M.A.C.’s first appearance and target the workers on Kevin Kho’s floor, including Kevin and all his friends. Meanwhile, since O.M.A.C. is still on the loose, S.H.A.D.E. decides to send in their top agent, Frankenstein, to succeed where Checkmate has failed. This epic storyline continues in this month’s FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E. #5!
According the NYCC Dark and Edge panel this will not be a continuation, despite what the solicit says, but the same storyline told from different points-of-view. We shall see.
