    It's only one issue, but it really feels like Spencer has regained his stride. It picks up exactly where T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #10 left off, but it also feels like the series is getting some real direction again, which is a welcome sight. I can't wait to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents are back. As a new reader, there was plenty to grab my attention as the concept of the story is introduced in a way that doesn't slow down the story for readers familiar with the characters Read Full Review

    Like the first series, this miniseries may actually read much better when it is collected in a trade paperback. Sadly, there probably won't be another sequel. Read Full Review

    Long-time readers of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents will most likely find plenty to enjoy in this first issue. For the newcomers, you might come away confused by the book's turn of events, but the solid character work found within should be enough to bring you back for at least one more issue to see where things go from here.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 1, 2011

    "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" #1 might have been slightly better received if it was "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" #11, but as a new #1 I'm not convinced it hits the mark. For those who have read the previous volume of "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" published earlier this year, though, it's like seeing an old friend again. Hopefully later issues will be a little more new-reader friendly. Provided, of course, that new readers give it one more shot. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 1, 2011

    I went into this book expecting a jumping on point as it was billed as such, but the series feels like it has the weight of many years behind it. There is an appeal to that since it means there's a lot of material to work with for storylines, but it's a very inaccessible book in a big way, unlike most others that I've read that try to go this route since it's not as firmly entrenched in the familiar. I liken it to how I felt about the Legion book upon the relaunch as it was in a similar situation, running for several issues prior to the relaunch which just carried on as normal with a quick nod towards the bigger picture. What I came away with here is that if you weren't reading the book that ran through August before the relaunch, not much here is going to make sense. It has a certain potential with it as I liked the Suberranea area and some of what we get between Toby and Colleen, but the majority of it just felt like a jumbled and inaccessible mess.
