The first six issues of Nick Spencer and CAFU's T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS are now available in the digital store, giving readers the perfect chance to catch up on the acclaimed new take on The Higher United Nations Defense Enforcement Reserves: a group of unconventional superheroes with powers that will eventually kill them. If you need another reason to catch up, check out the sequence in issue #7 that takes place in the 1960s - with Nick Dragotta illustrating them in the style of the era.
Hello, DC Nation! Wil Moss here, associate editor on the SUPERMAN line of books. How’ve you been? Have you lost weight? Well, you look great. So before you head to the comic store this week, I want to draw your attention to two fine offerings from the Man of Steel’s corner of the DCU that hit the shelves Wednesday!
I know I'm far from the only T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents fan here. I've been tipped off to a few of the guest artists who'll be contributing to upcoming issues, and they're just too cool not to share. (Just check out the Francis Manapul cover for issue five above!) I'll let you hear the news straight from T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents editor, Wil Moss:
The response to T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS #1 so far has been tremendous, so on behalf of Nick Spencer, CAFU, and the rest of the team, let me say thanks for taking a chance on a book that A) is a little less straightforward than usual and B) is, for a lot of readers, a pretty unknown quantity. We’re thrilled to find such a receptive audience! The second issue goes on sale 12/8, and it’s every bit as exciting as the first one.
You’ve heard from the editors, you’ve seen teaser images and we’ve talked up a storm about this book – and now it’s here. This coming Wednesday, writer Nick Spencer and artist CAFU present a modern, topical and just plain exciting look at the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS in an issue that asks the simple, oft-quoted question: Would you rather burn out, or fade away? When a handful of people, desperately clawing at their last shred of hope are presented with the opportunity to be heroes, the offer sounds ideal. But there’s one catch. Their powers will eventually kill them.
