Thunder Agents #19 - Wally Wood art, reprint & cover reprints

Thunder Agents v1 #19 tower silver age 1960s comic book cover art by Wally Wood
T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents v1 #19, 1967 - Comprised of mostly reprints, this double sized issue opens with a new Dynamo story. Enemy spies create an army of androids, some of them disguised as Thunder Agents. The opening splash looks suspiciously like Dan Adkins, but the rest appears to be Wally Wood's handiwork. Panels are small and numerous, but distinctively drawn, especially the close-ups of character faces. The covers touts the absence of ads, but uses a montage of previous covers (including three by Wood). The inside front cover reprints a portrait of Dynamo from Thunder Agents #3 in black and white. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska and Mike Sekowsky (reprints). This is number 18 of 18 Thunder Agents issues with Wood art and/or covers (not including reprints).

  1. Dan Adkins pencilled much of the Wood THUNDER AGENTS work, which, as you noted, was especially evident in this issue. Adkins once told me that he had hoped to ink this issue himself, so the pencils were tighter than normal.
