‘Thundercats’ scores second story arc starting July 2024

Get a look at the ‘Thundercats’ tank and more in todays reveal.

Press Release

Dynamite has revealed new details around the Thundercat’s second story arc kicking off in July. Written by Declan Shalvey with art by Drew Moss and following Stephen Mooney’s guest writer/artist work on issue #5, Thundercats #6 sees the team more settled on their new home planet of Third Earth; it’s time for them to make it their home.

Fans will not only get to see the new team base, but the debut of the Thundertank will also enter the series! For more on the series, don’t miss our exclusive chat with Shalvey and Moss on the AIPT Comics podcast!

So what’s the second Thundercats story arc about?

Though Lion-O remains the central figure of the series, this arc will shift a bit from each core character issue to issue, showing their relationship with the young upstart heroic leader. Panthro powers up their iconic vehicle to kick off this new arc with a bang. While on a quest to track down sources of Thundrainium, the warrior recalls back to the days of Thundara before its destruction, Lion-O’s time as a cub, but he can’t reminisce too much. He’ll find himself attacked by Mu’Tants and along the way learn more of the history of Third Earth, its penal colony past and the irony of now using it as a sanctuary.

Check out covers for Thundercats #6 below. Covers are by Rahzzah, David Nakayama, Lucio Parrillo, Shalvey, Jae Lee, Ivan Tao, and an action figure variant. Nakayama’s lead cover shows off the Thundertank in all its glory!

Though Lion-O remains the central figure of the series, this arc will shift a bit from each core character issue to issue, showing their relationship with the young upstart heroic leader. Panthro powers up their iconic vehicle to kick off this new arc with a bang. While on a quest to track down sources of Thundrainium, the warrior recalls back to the days of Thundara before its destruction, Lion-O’s time as a cub, but he can’t reminisce too much. He’ll find himself attacked by Mu’Tants and along the way learn more of the history of Third Earth, its penal colony past and the irony of now using it as a sanctuary.

Beyond Panthro and the Thundertank, another big star of ThunderCats #6 is special guest cover artist Rahzzah! The superstar creator is known for his jaw-dropping work on titles like Ghost Rider, Weapon X, Hulk, Darth Vader, and more. Collectors will not want to miss his stunning cover, an open incentive variant.

Rahzzah is joined by the continuing regular cover contributors of David Nakayama, Lucio Parrillo, Shalvey, Jae Lee, Ivan Tao, and an action figure variant. Nakayama’s lead cover shows off the Thundertank in all its glory!
