    It's hard to not undersell Rahsan Ekedal's artwork. You have see it; to read it. His washy grey tones give the book a near perfect flow. Ekedal delivers the goods, panel after panel, page after page. This is a colorless book that will have you seeing red blood. His careful line work is so detailed, so wonderfully rendered, that you'll never notice that the world is so grey. Even if you have no interest in this story " and you really should have interest in this story, guys " do yourself a favor and stare at Ekedal's art for a moment or two. It's worth a stare.

    The black and white art from Ekedal is pretty well done, managing to bring home the horrors of war without the striking colors of it. The eyes we look into in each panel are very real, and the level of detail in the backgrounds and each face is quite impressive. I don't know if it's made me smarter, but Think Tank is a pretty cool book, and well worth your time to check out. Read Full Review

    I'm extremely pleased to see this book has been picked up for a longer run. I believe it has great potential and any possible reservations I had in the first issue have dissolved with the advent of the second. Pick up this book and every issue from now on. This isn't a title you want to miss. The last book I enjoyed this much in the realm of realism was Brian Wood's DMZ. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 5, 2012

    Think Tank #2 is a solid addition to this new series, as it takes the set-up of the first issue and attempts to deepen and expand its narrative scope. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Garry Robertson Sep 3, 2012

    Another good issue, leaving us to wonder how David will escape and what gadgets he will use to do so. How significant will the name Metalstorm prove to be and will he get the girl? We will find out in the next issue. A good, interesting story carries on in this issue and functional artwork does its job really well. So another 7/10 from me. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Sep 10, 2012

    It's likely that the next "Think Tank" issue will reveal more about David's "Godfather" plan and whether he is genius enough to save the girl and his friend while gaining his freedom. "Think Tank" has been a hit and the series has been given the green light to expand to at least ten issues. With this larger canvas, it would be ideal if Hawkins and Ekedal could tone down the information dumps, while keeping the characterization, humor and suspense strong. Read Full Review
