Dynamo v1 #1, 1966 - One of the most popular members of T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents, the character had this short-lived series during the silver age. In addition to the compelling cover design, Wally Wood illustrates three interior stories. The first appears to be primarily Wood with the aid of assistants and the second is his inks over Reed Crandall's pencils. Both are adequate, with full page opening splashes to compensate for an abundance of panels on subsequent pages. The third, pencilled by Steve Ditko, is slightly better and certainly the most interesting. The opening scene feels more film noir than superhero fiction. This is number 1 of 4 Dynamo issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 Dynamo issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
