T.h.u.n.d.e.r. Agents v1 #10, 1967 - Al Williamson and Wally Wood combine their talents on the high contrast cover, depicting Dynamo facing a shadowy brute. Artfully drawn, the scene has nothing to do with any interior stories. Wood's opening tale reveals the agents of S.P.I.D.E.R. and their plan to use Thunder Agent doppelgangers. Panels are small and numerous but not unappealing, a few may have been pencilled by Williamson. The high point is a sequence of panels that also serve as a cutaway to an underground lair (page 2). Figures descend stairs at each level, naturally guiding the reader (a brilliant concept that works particularly well here). Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky, Ogden Whitney, Manny Stallman and John Giunta. This is number 10 of 18 Thunder Agents issues with Wood art and/or covers (not including reprints) and number 1 of 1 Thunder Agents issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
