ISSUE #2: My THUNDER Agents Archive reading has hit a snag (due to the recent release of Archie Firsts, Li’l Abner Vol. 2 and Phantom Dailies Vol. 2 among other things), but the second issue of the new series was pretty good. It features the new Lightning and is set against an educational and historical backdrop of Kenya. The new series has a bit of the flavor of JMS’s Supreme Power, but maybe not quite that dark.
I see DC is bringing out some early Wally Wood Thunder Agents comics in a DC Comics Presents at the end of Dec.
Written by WALLACE WOOD, STEVE SKEATES and others; Art by WALLACE WOOD, GIL KANE, STEVE DITKO and others; Cover by WALLACE WOODAs DC's new T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS series gets under way, relive these legendary tales from T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS #1, 2 and 7! Don't miss the origins of the team's members, the death of a lead character, and more.
Yes, that caught my eye as well. Hopefully they will continue if the new series is successful.
I haven't been to the comic shop in two weeks. I'm hoping this will still be there when I get there tomorrow.
...if you can get past the eight buck price tag. Yikes!
US$8 will cost me AU$12 here in Australia which is "Yikes" X 150%!. One of the reasons my pull list has shrunk since landing here.
(The Aussie dollar is now = to the yankee greenback - quite unprecedented. Hope I see a commensurate drop in the price of US comics here soon as a result.)
