Infiltrating the secret island headquarters of the enemy, Operative 1001 and his allies manage to free the prisoners, and it seems that the day has been won. But when he learns the true identity of Dr. Thorpe, he discovers that the threat is much larger in scope than he had ever imagined, and that the danger is far from over.

    The only negative about Codename Action #5 is that it's the final issue. With jetpacks, pulp icons, and super spies, there's nothing not to love here. I hope this is only the end for now. Read Full Review

    "Codename: Action" has been a fun diversion full of nostalgia and classic adventure. I hope to see Captain Action in his own series. Perhaps a team-up with other heroes featured in the D. E. universe. I recommend buying the collected edition if one is slated to be published. Read Full Review

    Once again, Jonathan Lau's art exists to be enjoyed. From every calm moment to the most violent action, he has made this story shine. Read Full Review

    This final entry is neck deep in action and I think that's where the series really shines. The Dynamite cast of heroes don't serve very much purpose though, and I'd mark up their inclusion as either a stunt to bring in more readers, or that something else was intended for them but the series was cut shorter. Either way is was a very fun, enjoyable reading experience and isn't that what comics are all about?
