    I'm not sure how most fans of the original series will feel about this book - it's very different in style and substance. But if you know that going in, I suspect you'll enjoy this series - it's smart, sneaky and full of surprises. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jan 12, 2011

    Regular artist CAFU shares the issue with Howard Chaykin this month. CAFU tackles the present day and recent flashback scenes, while Chaykin renders the deeper flashback sequences that cover NoMan's fall during the '60s and '70s. Chaykin's style is a good fit for these time periods, even if it doesn't easily gel with CAFU's. The latter meanwhile, turns in more excellent, detailed work that manages to evoke John Cassaday's cinematic style in its best moments. T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents may not be a franchise many current readers are familiar with, but that shouldn't stop them from jumping right into this new series. Perhaps more than anything Spencer has tackled in recent months, it proves why he's a writer to watch closely in 2011. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Morgan Davis Jan 20, 2011

    The real question is whether Spencer truly knows what hes doing, whether the hints he drops and the questions he poses have real meat to them or if hes a creator whose creations are really just tugging him along. But isnt that the fun? What use is a comic whose every move is broadcast from a mile away? Weve put Spencer up on a pedestal precisely because he demands risk and he doesnt do what you expect and even if T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents is a disappointment of Lost magnitude in the end, will it have been any less fun of a ride? Certainly not. Read Full Review

    "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" may have an awkward name, but that's the only rough thing about it. I am loving "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents," and it's one of the best new series from DC Comics in a long time. So long as Spencer and CAFU stick around, they can count on me reading. Great job, all involved. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jan 13, 2011

    The weakest issue so far, although theres still a lot to like: tremendous character work, subtle drama, strong artwork. But the action remains lightnot a good position for any superhero title. However, next issue seems to be the turning point for the story, so lets count on a big payoff there. Read Full Review
