T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents v1 #3, 1965 - In the first of four Wally Wood stories, Dynamo must stop an invasion of subterraneans from destroying the Capitol building. The opening splash is noticeably less impactful than usual, but Wood compensates with added detail in some panels (see interior page below). His cover and three remaining tales are dependably drawn and largely meet expectations. Highlighting the issue is a series of full page portraits of the various Thunder Agents. Wood seems to take extra care in each detailed rendering and composition. Two of the stories below have been reprinted in Thunder Agents #20. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky. This is number 3 of 18 Thunder Agents issues with Wood art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Wood or Thunder Agents issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist or an original page from this issue.
