T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents v1 #6, 1966 - In Wally Wood's opening tale, agents of the Red Star (a thinly veiled reference to Communist Asia) kidnap one of the Thunder Agents. Drawn with skill and enthusiasm, the story is enhanced by a kinetic splash and several large panels (see interior page below). Wood's effort on the second story, pitting Noman against Dynamo, suggests a lesser contribution (possibly only inks). Steve Ditko illustrates a Noman feature, his eclectic style bringing a freshness to the character and the series in general. Other artists in this issue include John Giunta and Mike Sekowsky. This is number 5 of 18 Thunder Agents issues with Wood art and/or covers (not including reprints) and number 1 of 6 Thunder Agents issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
