Exclusive Preview of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS #4

By DCE Editorial Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Fans of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS have already been treated to special artwork in the series by industry heavy-hitters Walter Simonson and Jerry Ordway. In issue #4, Sam Kieth (SANDMAN, ARKHAM ASYLUM: MADNESS) joins the ranks of these guest artists by contributing a stunning five-page sequence, previewed exclusively below. “It was weird to draw part of a story someone will finish because I haven’t seen their parts,” Kieth exclusively told THE SOURCE. “With any luck, [series artist] Wes Craig can repair the damage I’ve done in my first part.” So what is this sequence that Kieth illustrated? We asked series editor Wil Moss to shed some light. Take it away, Wil! “The man who created the devices that give the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents their powers, Professor Emil Jennings, has been dead since the ‘60s — but as readers found out last month in T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS #3, he’s actually alive and well, and has been working for the Subterraneans all this time!” teased Moss. “T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS #4 opens with a scene explaining how and why that’s possible, and to draw this sequence, we brought in guest artist Sam Kieth, whose one-of-a-kind art style serves as a clear indicator to readers that what they’re seeing in this sequence is basically an alternate view of how things went down; that what readers thought they knew was in fact wrong. So enjoy this preview of Sam’s art, then pick up the full issue (on sale today), written by Nick Spencer with art by regular series artist Wes Craig, as the battle between T.H.U.N.D.E.R. and the Subterraneans reaches a boiling point, costing one Agent their life ...” [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
