    "T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents" #4, like the three issues that preceded it, clicks on every level to create a dynamic, entertaining superhero comic. There is no reason not to read this comic, aside from hating well-crafted comics. Read Full Review

    CAFU is in fine form once again, with plenty of detailed, precise pencils tinged with moody shadows. CAFU is also joined by George Perez this month. Though the two are stylistically very different, Perez is used in a logical way that serves the issue well. Plus, it's George Perez. When is that ever something to complain about? Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 9, 2011

    The plot still seems to be dragging its heels in mud, but at least it feels like we're finally getting somewhere. The strength of the writing and art team can only do so much to cover up a plodding story, however. It's time to go big or go home. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 13, 2011

    On a recent podcast, I opined that if T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents can get past nine issues that they should be able to make it to issue #25, and this is a strong step in that direction. Taking all the various team histories and creating the beginnings of a team canon using the strong stories of the past incarnations of the team is neat on two levels: If you know the history, then the stories you enjoyed still "happened." (As much as that probably shouldn't matter, it is good to know that you don't have to deal with remembering which issues no longer exist. As a Legion fan, I can tell ya, this is more exhausting than you think.) If you don't know the history of T.H.U.N.D.E.R., these pages can serve as a little bit of flashback depth, or even a stepping stone into the collected editions of the old-school adventures. All in all, even with the ending surprise being sort of not so surprising, this is a good outing for the agents, and makes me want to know what happens next AND what happened betwe Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Morgan Davis Feb 15, 2011

    Im not normally an optimist, but when it comes to Spencer, Im willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. As it stands, this is an issue of T.H.U.N.D.E.R Agents that is squarely in the middle of the road, a bland (by Spencers standards) bit of storytelling that has no real payoff. But its extremely likely that my opinion could be entirely different as soon as next issue. And isnt that what makes sequential storytelling so fun? Read Full Review
