  Typically, one suffers the writing in any given "Ray" offering in silence, whilst simultaneously luxuriating in the scrumptious Lou Fine pencils. This time out, however, a real novelty: a Ray adventure that doesn't actually bite the fabled wad, plot-wise.

The premise, while slight (sabotage of a new U.S. war plane), nonetheless coheres all the way to story's end. Plenty of tension throughout, both around young sidekick Bud (who, miracle of miracles, actually proves himself competent and useful, even after being shot) *and* the Ray himself, whose powers and ingenuity are both fairly tested to destruction. Slather generously with another stunning Lou Fine art job, and the end result is one that goes down smooth and satisfying.

Four stars.
