Would you rather burn out or fade away? That's the question at the heart of this bold new series about a group of people who, for one reason or another, are at their wits' end until they're offered a chance to become superheroes. The catch? Their powers will kill them.Writer Nick Spencer (Morning Glories) and artist CAFU (WAR OF THE SUPERMEN) present a fresh take on the classic comics property, starring a new batch of recruits brought in to take over the original agents' mantles and make some difficult choices of their own all while dealing with global threats the rest of the DCU doesn't even know exist!

    "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" #1 is a strong debut that establishes the concept of the book by showing it instead of simply telling. You need to go with it a little and trust in Spencer and CAFU, because they know what they're doing. As far as first issues go, it's one of the best I've seen in a while and is a sign that "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" may be the next must read comic. Read Full Review

    We barely meet the heroes this time around, but so far, I like this series. It's an interesting take on the concept and a fresh start for the team. I'm all for it! Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Nov 10, 2010

    T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1 covers all the major requirements of a successful debut issue. Although it takes a little too long getting to its central hook, it manages to keep your attention long enough before sinking its premise deep into your skin. And although Spencer is perhaps a little too clever for his own good using bells and whistles to add weight to his story, those bells and whistles are actually a hell of a lot of fun when you stop to listen to them. My one major criticism of the issue is that by spending so much time announcing his unique style and voice, Spencer never really gets around to defining his characters in any detail. Still, I'm definitely eager to get my hands on issue #2. Read Full Review

    A hard issue to grade, really. It's unmistakably a high quality product with excellent writing and artwork on a technical level, but it's all marred by very odd creative decision. I feel like I'm still waiting, albeit excitedly, for the first issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Nov 20, 2010

    Interestingly, this series credits TV and movie producer Michael Uslan of initiating the THUNDER Agents project. Perhaps this series is intended as a draft for a potential TV show. Read Full Review
