T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents v1 #7, 1966 - Noman drops from an impressive height, stopping a car full of armed thugs. Accurate foreshortening makes this Wally Wood cover more exciting and credible. Inside, the artist delivers two terrific stories. On the first, Dynamo turns fugitive after being framed by the Iron Maiden. The opening splash shows the hero hiding in a sewer, made filthier by Wood's small touches. The second tale tells of Menthor's abduction by the Subterraneans. Aside from a single dramatic splash, the remaining pages are comprised of small exquisitely drawn panels. Both stories meet Wood's standards and expectations. Also, the issue contains no Steve Ditko art, regardless of what comic guides say. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky, George Tuska, John Giunta and Sal Trapani. This is number 7 of 18 Thunder Agents issues with Wood art and/or covers (not including reprints).
