T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents v1 #8, 1967 - The subterranean Overlord returns in two action-packed stories by Wally Wood. In the first, Dynamo is kidnapped and transferred to the villain's lair (inexplicably styled as a medieval castle). The reverse occurs in the second tale, as a subterranean is captured and interrogated by the Thunder Agents. Dan Adkins is credited as penciller, emulating his mentor's style while benefitting from his inks. The spaceship interiors are the most interesting, mostly due to detailed machinery in the background. Wood's cover combines several fight scenes in a busy yet eye-catching layout. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky, John Giunta, Joe Giella and George Tuska. This is number 8 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.
