CBR Review: Bring the Thunder #1

I recently reviewed Bring the Thunder #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "This week, Dynamite launches something of an anomaly in comics: an original concept Alex Ross-overseen comic. Ross is usually known for delivering his unique take on existing characters at Marvel, DC, and, recently, with Project: Superpowers and its updating of public domain Golden Age heroes. Bring the Thunder is a new concept by Ross with Jai Nitz co-plotting and handling the scripting duties. Surprisingly, it doesn’t read like your stereotypical ‘Alex Ross superhero comic,’ which is either a good or bad thing depending on your opinion of Ross’s work usually. This debut issue is an interesting beginning, but a little too vague in its presentation of the central concept to act as a proper introduction."
