As far as I can recall, first time with T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents.

Approx 11x17inches






(And I threw in the second NoMan figure as a freebie.)

and it's _awesome_

:  )      (the smile is much bigger but they don't makeemoticons that big)

This is the third, and for now final, piece I ask for.  Ever since I came across the brief 80's revival I though it would be great to see JB's version.  That Dynamo is fantastic.  Easily my favorite of the three.  thank you JB

... and thanks for the extra No-Man.  I didn't even see him at first.

Dynamo!  I always tend think right inside the box when it comes to seeing John do characters he was closely associated with, but this is a great idea for a commission!  Congratulations, Kevin.

And, the second body is a nice touch.

Not at all familiar with these characters -- very very very cool to have them in a Byrne commission.

Congrats to the owner.

You even managed to make the Raven look good! Excellent. I'd love to see a regular Byrne T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents comic.

MIke, the Thunder Agents are from the 60's.  Government sponsored / run super-heroes.  There are more than these four but these are my favs.  Probably best known at this point for a string of great Wally Wood issues.

I'm with Paul on a Byrne T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents series. I've always had lukewarm interest in the characters in the past, but a Byrne take would definitely get my full attention.

Not familiar with the THUNDER Agents either, but this piece is incredible!!!  It really is amazing how much John can fit into these 11x17 pieces.  Congrats on another great commission!

Tower Power!  Cool.  I like the different line weights in this one.  That monster looks like some Kirby kreation straight out of the Timely Strangle Tales or Tales to Astonish books.

OK, I always said I wouldn't just chime in to parrot what others have said.

But heck the idea of John Byrne's THUNDER Agents just thrills me! Long-time fan of the originals and I did enjoy the Deluxe Comics version ...

I'd love to see a from-scratch reboot by JB. The real question is -- apart from the problem of getting the rights, I suppose -- would the Chief even be interested in doing such a thing?

Very cool! I don't believe I ever saw you draw the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents before, JB.

Q for JB: were you approached to contribute to the short-lived Deluxe Comics T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents revival?

(Great piece, btw!)

Supadupa! I enjoy the background perspectives; busy, but always clean.
