Think Tank’s New Arc ‘Animal’ Arrives This Week – Preview The Wild First Issue

by Staff


Acclaimed Top Cow comic Think Tank returns this week for a totally new arc and #1 issue, this time for “Animal” with the classic tagline: “Danger: Reading This Book Will Make You Smarter”.


Written by Matt Hawkins, with art and covers by Rahsan Ekedal, this arc will take us into a world where animal assassins may be at work on an international scale and tracks some big challenges in the lives of key characters.

Top Cow describe issue #1 thus:

Several key NATO figures are assassinated…by animals? Someone has perverted Dr. David Loren’s surface thought-reader and turned it into a device that sends animals on kill missions. Still recovering from his recent suicide attempt, Loren is forced back into the military game to help uncover who is behind this. His fragile relationship with Mirra Sway is tested even further when his father shows up…with a sister he didn’t know he had.

Here are our alternate covers for Think Tank: Animal #1:
