A Review: THUN’DA #5

The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of THUN’DA #5 from Dynamite Comics. The story is by Robert Place Napton with art by Cliff Richards, cover by Jae Lee, and colors by Esther Sanz. Thun'da was creaed by Frank Frazetta.

The Shareen prepare for the arrival of the vast army of Kwa Kung. The Elder believes they can negotiate, but Roger Drum feels that the army plans to attack and kill the Shareen. Pha banishes Drum from the citadel for his protection. Drum devises a way to create an army, but can the combined forces repel Kwa Kung and his forces?  Can Roger Drum fight back his demons, regain his memory, and fulfill the destiny and become…Thun’da?

Overall this was a good, solid story that I enjoyed reading. However, it wasn’t anything I haven’t read before:  a character fulfilling a prophecy. I'm not to saying it's a bad or not a well written story, just familiar. It will be interesting to see where the comic goes from here (assuming Dynamite will) since that is now out of the way. Definitely like Cliff Richards art and Jae Lee’s covers are always cool.

THUN’DA #5 is in stores now and available at www.dynamite.com.
