Dynamo 5 #4
Dynamo 5 #4 (Image Comics)
By Jay Faerber & Mahmud A. Asrar
It’s Father’s Day — but what do you do when you’ve found out the father you grew up with isn’t your father at all, and your real father is a dead superhero? As far as holidays go, Father’s Day is often pretty underrepresented in the “very special issue” department, but this is hands-down the perfect book to really deal with it. Each of the kids has a unique home situation, and Faerber takes advantage of the holiday to delve into their personal lives in a way he hasn’t done before with this book. The big mystery, the “new” Captain Dynamo, is only briefly touched upon, but that’s okay. It’s not really about him, and he does at least give us a dandy cliffhanger ending. Overall, this book really demonstrates the best of Faerber‘s work — it’s an issue with almost no action at all, but that’s still as engaging as anything else Image is publishing.
