Bring the Thunder is the story of Wayne Russell, an elite pararescue jumper in the Air Force serving in Afghanistan. He leads the most rigorously trained troops on the most dangerous missions into enemy territory. During a deadly mission, Wayne's team is ambushed. Mortally wounded, Wayne finds and fires an experimental weapon. The result will change Wayne and warfare forever. Follow Wayne as he unravels the mystery of his new powers, and how trouble brews in Afghanistan when a man with similar powers emerges. Bring the Thunder is brought to you by Alex Ross (Kirby: Genesis), Jai Nitz (Silver Star), and Wilson Tortosa (Wolverine).
“Bring the Thunder is about a hot-button superhero for our times,” says Alex Ross. “An American soldier in Afghanistan is caught in a firefight that exposes him to an experimental weapon that transforms his body into living sound. His experiences over there resonate in the whole story as he is finding himself transplanted back home to his family after his world is entirely changed. He finds that his new state of being a sonic battery gives him the ability to affect change at a local level. From fighting gangs in Chicago to insurgents in the mountains of Afghanistan, this hero deals with real dangers that plague the world today.
With plot, concept, and amazing covers by Alex Ross, script by Jai Nitz (Tron: Betrayal), and art by Wilson Tortosa (Wolverine: Prodigal Son), Bring the Thunder is a creative tour-de-force!
