Would you rather burn out or fade away? That’s the question at the heart of this bold new series about a group of people who, for one reason or another, are at their wits’ end until they’re offered a chance to become superheroes. The catch? Their powers will kill them.

Writer Nick Spencer (Morning Glories) and artist CAFU (WAR OF THE SUPERMEN) present a fresh take on the classic comics property, starring a new batch of recruits brought in to take over the original agents’ mantles and make some difficult choices of their own – all while dealing with global threats the rest of the DCU doesn’t even know exist!

  1. Nick Spencer and Cafu re-imagining classic Wally Wood superheroes!!!! Sign me up!:)

  2. I’m interested but gonna wait on the reviews on this one.  Spencer talked it up on Word Balloon, and now i’ma scared i’m gonna miss out.  Keepin’ an eye on ya Thunder Agents!

  3. Looks interesting i’m in for a couple of issues.

  4. Please don’t suck.

  5. I’ll try this solely based on Spencer. $3.99 hurts but it is 40 pages.

  6. I’m down with Spencer on this too.  I think I’m going to pick it up.  We’ll see how it goes.  The guy in the suit and helmet looks pretty cool.

  7. THUNDER AGENTS! YES! I been waiting for this for years! 

    actually, i mean, who?  

  8. Ever since reading the Jimmy Olsen back-ups in Action Comics, I’ve been interested in reading more of Nick Spencer’s work.

    The concept of THUNDER AGENTS sounds interesting, so I’m excited for it.

  9. Wasnt really interested in this but after hearing spencer speaking so passionetly about this on wordballoon im willing to give it a shot. plus the premise alone makes it seem more like an image book than a DC book.

  10. also I love a good acronym!

  11. You know how to sell a book to me? A Quitely cover and a Darwyn variant.

  12. Haven’t read anything w/ NoMan since Blue Ribbon Comics.  This should be cool.

  13. I don’t know these characters, but I’m going to try it out based on my love of Morning Glories.

  14. I’m very interested in this…anybody read it yet or willing to write a review?

  15. It’s really good. 

  16. Wow… this book is amazing! Spencer knocked another one out of the park. This book cements in my mind that I will pick up anything that Spencer writes no question asked.

  17. I almost passed on this book. Wow am I glad I picked it up. This was great. I can’t wait to find out more about these characters. Spencer has moved into the stable of writers whose books I will automatically try. He seems like a good fit to take over Wonder Woman as I hear there is a vacancy.

  18. I passed on this one, but sounds like I might give in and pick it up next week. I think I noticed none of the iFanboys had it on their pull list, though, so I guess I’ll have to look elsewhere for more thoughts on it…

  19. This had a pretty good story, but the artist utterly failed with facial expressions.  Made some of the panels a little confusing.  His action and linework was pretty good though.  Is this a miniseries? It kind of has to be since the first issue establishes that I shouldn’t get attached to the main characters.

  20. I’m happy my LCS still had a copy of this for me to pick up.  Really fun read, I can’t wait for issue 2!

  21. great read will defnitly be picking this one up on a regular basis
