To start, I've never read a THUNDER Agents book before, but I have always wanted to try it out.
The writing was quite solid - good enough to have me interested without any knowledge of any THUNDER Agents history. There was obviously plot-points that fans would know, but it wasn't distracting for me.
The art could have been better, but the styles fit the different eras nicely. The storytelling was nice - very smooth to read.
My favorite part was the how the backup story tied directly into the main story. It was like giving us a flashback without being cheesey SCORE:
I'm looking forward to getting this series in TPB when it's available.
