Think Tank #5 Review

Think Tank #5 Review Short Version: I could not be happier that Matt Hawkins and Rahsan Ekedal decided to keep Think Tank, which I believe I read was originally only supposed to be four issues, going. Think Tank #5 picks up with Dr. David Loren back in military custody, his heart broken for the first time. If anything, Hawkins and Ekedal seem more comfortable than in the first series, giving me great hope for the future of Think Tank.

Think Tank #5 Review

Think Tank is a great comic book. It’s really as simple as that. After a brief break, Hawkins and Ekedal are back with Genetics, Part 1, the fifth issue of the series that was only originally slated as a four-issue mini-series. Luckily, the series came back for Think Tank #5 and, if it stays this good, hopefully it will be around a lot longer than that. David Loren is a great character, all conflicted emotions, good intentions and egotism. He’s had his heartbroken now, betrayed, so that should be an interesting thread going forward and, as Think Tank #5 proceeds, Loren’s actions make it clear he has a plan – he is not the sort to meekly give up – although what that plan is may not be immediately clear. Hawkins and Ekedal also do a nice job adding some dimension to Colonel Harrison in this issue, a character that could have easily been a one-note military tough is given a stake in the action. That, most of all, is the heart of Think Tank: none of the characters are quite as simple as they could be, they mostly seem like real people in tough situations trying to figure out what they believe and how they are going to handle it. It’s really great stuff.
