Dynamite; $4.99

The ThunderCats were forced to flee their home of Thundera when it was destroyed by the Mu’Tants of Plun-Darr. Only one ship safely escaped the attack, carrying Lion-O, Cheetara, Tygra, Panthro, WileyKat, and WileyKit to Earth. Three weeks after landing, the ThunderCats are attacked by the Mu’Tants once again.

The first issue of ThunderCats provides the backstory from the animated series while also setting up the adventures to come. Old and new readers get to know the characters, their strengths and weaknesses, and how they interact with each other. The creative team of writer Declan Shalvey, artist Drew Moss, and colorists Chiara Di Francia and Martina Pignedoli did a nice job on the debut of the new title.
