Fans of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS have already seen guest artwork by the likes of artists such as Walter Simonson, Jerry Ordway, Sam Kieth and Mike Choi. Joining writer Nick Spencer and artist Wes Craig this time around for the final issue of the series is original T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS artist CAFU in a sequence that continues a scene that began all the way back in the first issue of volume 1 of the series.
“One of my favorite aspects of this series is the use of classic comic artists to illustrate the flashbacks, and it's been a kick to see my work alongside some real legends over the course of our six issues,” series artist Wes Craig told THE SOURCE. “I think it was a great idea to use CAFU in that role for the finale to bring it all together, especially when you see how this last issue is tied in to the initial run that Nick and CAFU did.”
"First of all, I want to say that T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS is one of the books I'm most proud of, so when Nick and (editor) Wil Moss asked me and (colorist) Santiago Arcas to illustrate a part of the last issue, it felt like an honor,” CAFU said to THE SOURCE. “Also, this book was the first chance I had to work with characters I had designed myself, so I'm quite fond of them, and the truth is, I was starting to miss them already.
After having worked on GRIFTER and BLACKHAWKS (and in Santiago Arcas' case, RESURRECTION MAN) it was a lot of fun to be using the style we used a bit more than a year and a half ago (in fact, our idea was to try and do the pages as if time didn't pass and we had never stopped drawing T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS).
I'm very happy to have been a part of this book, and especially, to have been given the chance to say goodbye to my beloved Colleen Franklin. These characters deserved a grand finale and I think Nick has nailed it AGAIN. I hope you like it as much as I have!"
