I can't believe that T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives has a fifth volume coming out reprinting the ill-fated and controversial Wally Wood's T Agents for $59.99!! Granted they had great George Perez artwork but you should be able to get all five issues from the discount/dollar boxes at any convention!

Ditko did do some work for Tower, however, and I'm pretty sure it was on the Noman feature. Noman has got to be the most ineffectual agent ever. He's not simply an andraid, but the mind of an 80 year-old scientist transplanted into an android body. He had the power to transfer his mind from body to body, but the thing is, he was "killed" and lost at least one body every adventure! (Every one I've read so far, anyway.) Those android bodies can't be cheap! I'll bet next time THUNDER seriously considers transferring the mind of a trained agent rather than a scientist into Noman's body.
I read loads of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents comics as a kid. They were collected in square-bound B&W collections of maybe 64 pages each.
Noman and Captain Atom (possibly drawn by Ditko?) are the ones I remember most. Noman was an android like the Vision, which is probably why I liked him best.
Their cold-war setting gave them a very different flavour to most of the other DC/Marvel superheroes I was reading back then.
Actually, they already have at least 5 volumes of Archives of the series. I bought mine a week and a half a go at a convention (half off baby!). I've only read an issue or two from that latter series that my brother had, and I liked them as well. They may be cheap, but I can't remember the last time I saw any around here. If I had I would have picked them up then.
I did read the first issue of this new series, and Jeff is right. It is to soon to see where it is going. It is pretty dark, but so was the original series during its time.
