Nancy Drew #5

"The Case of the Cold Case" concludes in Nancy Drew #5 as Nancy and her friends search for the kidnapped Bess and solve both the city of Bayport's drug problem and a series of murders, including the unsolved case which brought Nancy Drew back home.

The tension is high in the issue as Nancy struggles to concentrate to find her missing friend. In the end, with little assistance from the local police, Nancy is able to find Bess (who also manages to take out of the baddies on her own), uncover the smuggling ring, and reveal the reason for unexplained deaths of local young women.

I've enjoyed the five-issue arc from writer Kelly Thompson and artist Jenn St-Onge and Nancy Drew #5 provides a fitting conclusion. Although the comic ends on a cliffhanger, with Nancy in new trouble and in need of all the help she can get, Dynamite Entertainment has no new solicitations for further adventures of Nancy Drew. Hopefully this isn't the last of the plucky teenage detective for the foreseeable future. Worth a look.
