    Dynamo 5 #15 is a great entry into the series. Scrap fans will be tickled with all the attention the heroin gets, and fans of the series will be treated to some good action and a little of the drama that they are used to. The final splash throws the fate of the old Dynamo 5 team into question, and now we wait to find out what's good next month. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 13, 2008

    I have to say, this issue is extremely well crafted in terms of the plot, getting us from point A (a town without defenses) to point B (the all-new all-different Dynamo 5) efficiently and with a natural through-line. The side trip with Gage and Hector is compelling, and raises questions similar to what Stephen, Rodrigo and I discussed about mind-control powers in a recent podcast... Bringing in characters that writer Jay Faerber has (mostly) used before in his other works is nicely done as well, showing that we are in an extended universe that reminds me of the 70's Marvel comics, before this kind of crossover became passe. In a really interesting meaningless sidebar, Scrap spends the whole issue with her long mane of black hair tied up, giving the illusion that she's too busy to worry about it with all the fighting she's been mired in. It's asubtle artistic touch, but a nice one. Mahmud Asrar's pencils are, as usual, nicely done, bridging the gap between avisually simp Read Full Review

    While I wasn't the least bit involved in the football scenario, the old school pummeling of bad guys by two competent female super-heroes left me grinning from ear to ear. Faerber creates two interesting characters. One battles for good, and her motives differ from the typical vengeance-fueled, subpar Batman tripe. The other is no mean villain. The conclusion to Dynamo 5 promises for more fun to come. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Aug 3, 2008

    I'll openly admit that I was late to the Dynamo 5 party, but am I ever glad I decided to show up. While I am a bit disappointed with where things may be headed, this is still one of the best reads out there. Jay Faerber's story about the illegitimate children of Captain Dynamo is a great combination of clever writing, slick art, and lots of heart. The characters have depth, the action is well done, and the concept alone is worth the price of admission. If you haven't been reading it, do yourself a favor and pick up the two trades so you can see what all the fuss is about. Read Full Review
