Dynamo v1 #4, 1967 - Borrowing a scenario from the silent film era, Dynamo saves a damsel in distress with surprising ease. Although a bondage cover, Wally Wood instead makes the train the focal point of the layout. The locomotive's detailed design is impressively complex, almost technological in feel. Inside, Wood capably draws three of the five total stories. The most noteworthy is "Weed", a collaborative effort with Steve Ditko. This tale is largely satirical in nature, but their combined talents successfully portray a humorous side to otherwise heroic characters. Other artists in this issue include Chic Stone. This is number 4 of 4 Dynamo issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Dynamo issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
