T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents v1 #5, 1966 - Three Wally Wood tales reside in this issue, each showing a unique perspective due to different pencillers. In the first Dynamo tale, Reed Crandall's style works seamlessly with Wood, perhaps due to their similar classical approach. By contrast, Gil Kane's Noman pencils are more contemporary and assertive, despite the distinctive inks. Both benefit from Wood's meticulous craftsmanship, aided by Dan Adkins and Ralph Reese. The last story brings the various Thunder Agents together against a duplicate Dynamo (also depicted on the cover). Wood's combined pencils and inks are a tad more detailed, but otherwise equally well executed. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky. This is number 5 of 18 Thunder Agents issues with Wood art and/or covers (not including reprints).
