Review: T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #4
The first arc reaches its soul-searing climax as the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents battle the might of the Subterranean Army for control of The Judgment Tower, but while they struggle, the Tower itself unleashes its unholy wrath. How can T.H.U.N.D.E.R. save humanity when they can’t even save themselves?
The final story in the first arc of the newly launched T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents series hits this week. The story is written by Phil Hester with art by Andrea Di Vito. Rom Fajardo handles colors with Chris Mowry handles lettering. The final arc comes to its conclusion, but does it go out with a bang?
The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents have found out what Iron Maiden’s plan is. The femme fatale has been working for some subterranean inhabitants who are trying to use one of the mysterious Judgment Towers to raise their long sleeping god. The plan has worked so far, but the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, and their newest recruit Dynamo, are really going to have their hands full if the big guy wakes up. Meanwhile Director Kane is trying to convince the United Nations that her rogue actions were in the best interest of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. and world security. It’s a fight on all fronts, but can the Agents triumph?
Hester writes a good conclusion to the first arc. Our team has actually become a team and the threats are dealt with. This was a good bonding exercise for our Agents and we learn a little more about the home life of the new recruit. Di Vito’s art is solid and consistent. Throughout the entire first arc we’ve gotten a smooth and clean book with an old school feel that still modernizes the Agents of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Di Vito has a good sense of direction when it comes to the action, and the artist really gets a chance to play around when the gigantic stone god rises. Fajardo’s colors are crisp and bright. They help sell the vibe of Di Vito’s take on the classic series.
Bottom Line: T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents ends on a high note. Things for this section get wrapped up while things are seeded for what’s coming up next. This has been a solid series so far and it looks like there’s no sign of stopping. 3.5/5
