DC Comics has released a few pages of artist Wes Craig’s character designs for T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1. Craig stated that he based the characters’ looks on CAFU’s designs from the previous series and that he “… stuck to them pretty closely, making little tweaks that would suit (his) style better.”
Take a look and judge for yourselves.
“Their powers: Usually the artist display’s a hero’s super-powers as majestic and awe-inspiring. But with the Agents, their powers can potentially kill them so I wanted the feeling that their powers were a bit out of their control and that it made them feel a bit sick inside to use them.
Lightning: I love characters with super-speed.
NoMan: I wanted to give myself a challenge in how to draw his invisibility powers without just using a Photoshop fade-out effect, and I think I’ve found some fun solutions.
Colleen: Colleen’s going to have a fancy new ‘season two’ haircut, but we hadn’t thought of that yet when I was drawing these designs.
The Subterraneans: I had a kick drawing these guys since it was my first major contribution to the look of the series. I tried to stick to the basic idea of the original 60′s design with these guys, but make them a bit scarier and more reptilian. Drawing their subterranean kingdom has also been a lot of fun.”
