Home » » IDW Announces Creative Team for Thunder Agents
"I'm thrilled to be working with Andrea on this book," said Hester. "His style hits all the right notes, combining the best of modern storytelling sensibilities with classic super hero dynamism. Our goal is to preserve what was unique about the original Wally Wood-helmed run, but inject it with the high-octane action and resonant character development modern readers demand. Andrea's work will convey to readers the sense of excitement we feel as creators."
Radiant Assets, the owner of the property, has fully endorsed the team and IDW launch of the book.
"I am very excited about the creative team assembled for the IDW launch of THUNDER AGENTS," said David M. Matthews, Managing Director of Radiant Assets, owner of the property. "I have a great respect and appreciation for Phil and Andrea's work, and I'm ecstatic over having Jerry Ordway and Dave Sim contributing covers. It really doesn't get much better than that!"
"Let me tell you, nobody's more excited to be doing bona fide superheroes at IDW than I am," said THUNDER Agents editor Tom Waltz. "And to have it be a classic property like THUNDER Agents and have it being kicked off by the massively talented duo of Phil Hester and Andrea Di Vito, not to mention covers by living legends Jerry Ordway and Dave Sim?! Consider me over the moon!"
