While we all are awaiting the inevitable return of the series to DVD these books do a pretty good job of continuing where the series left off. however the series has taken a much darker change then the cartoon ever did. Lion-o has been gone for several years training in the book of omens only to return to find his planet and his people tortured and bloody by Mummra. this book follows a much darker and bloodier life then the thundercats ever had. the art in this book is also top notch and thanks should go out to the artists that make these books and keep our series alive and well.

Rape of a Classic Oct. 9 2005
By J. Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This series is pretty revolting. People I've talked to have generally hated this. It's all well and good to have a property grow up, but this is just sick gritty for the sake of being gritty. Some of our beloved characters get killed. Cheetara is raped daily. Wily Kit, a child, grows up as Mummra's sex slave. It's just disgusting. It's like an extremely bad fanfic, written by an overzealous and sexually frustrated teen. To add to this is how badly the sexual abuse is handled. Despite being ravaged for years, chained up in a mine, etc, Cheetara is drawn like a Playboy model. And not only does her body not suffer the torture, but she doesn't seem broken or mentally unstable like true rape victims are. Obviously, the idea of Cheetara being raped is MEANT to be sensual and to sell the book, otherwise we wouldn't be treated to full page spreads of her looking sexy in chains. (And people attack "I Spit on Your Grave" for glorifying rape... that was realistic in the horror).

On the same token, Wily Kit, who is obviously at this point the product of child rape and molestation (by a frickin' MUMMY) seems trong willed and again, is drawn in a way that must be to make comic book fanboys go "HEHEH!! Look, sexy!"

And to finish it up, later in this series, the Thundercats have to team with the Mutants against the Dogs of War. And what happens? Apperantly, the Thundercats forgive all that horror upon them, have a big celebration feast and Lion-o TOASTS Mumm-ra!? "Cheers to Mumm-ra, who killed my people and raped my friends!" I'm surprised they didn't have Cheetara giggle at the mutants sitting at the table and say "So... my room later?"

All in all, a TERRIBLE, repulsive story and anyone who showers it with praise is obviously degenerate and has no true love for the original.

Thundercats - Grown up: Good or Bad Oct. 21 2004
By 80s kid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I grew up watching Thundercats with GI Joe and Transformers every weekday afternoon of my young life. Boob-tube baby that's me. The plot lines where laghable; bad guy does something bad, gets one over on the good guy for roughly fifteen to twenty minutes, then the good guys triumph in the end. It was never really clear why Mumm-Ra had to pick fights with the Thundercats, at least not to me anyway. But he did, and promptly go his but kicked each and every time. As a kid you really didn't care, the Thundercats were cooler than anything in real life so we tuned in every Mon-Fri, usually when we still had homework to do. Then the unthinkable happened; we grew up and the Thundercats were shown for what they really are. A silly, childish, little cartoon. It wasn't devistating, but it just fell by the way side.

Some ten-twenty years later the market for 1980's cartoon series somehow becomes popular again and we are seeing the return of Transformers and He-man on the box and GI Joe gets a face lift in comic books and then look who's back, The Thundercats. Only this time they are alot more grown up with darker issues to handle. They have to save their people from slavery and genocide. They have to killor be killed, no more kid gloves and understanding for the bad guys. The audience that this is played out for are the same as in the 80's only older so the plot line must match the minds of the people who are watching it now. The problem is what was so wong in just keeping with the tone of the TV series. Sure we are now in a world were Tony Soprano is a hero and sex and violence is what gets and holds our attention. But when it is heavily implied that Cheetarah is getting raped on a daily basis by the mutants and Bengali is swinging from a wall hanged to death, it's just a little much. I know that it's a different time and the kids who read it now won't be as emotionaly involved with the situation but it was an unneccesary element. I know I'm being prudish but I think these types of series getting an adult overhaul just makes me want the series as it was on a Tuesday afternoon when it was innocent and just fun all the more.

If you have even the minimum respect for the old cartoon classic, avoid this heresy at all costs.

This is not your father’s Thundercats. His was much better. SPOILERS! Jan. 25 2014
By Patrick Correa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I can understand why some people don’t like the cartoon anymore, but I admit to enjoying it greatly. And that’s why I loved the miniseries Reclaiming Thundera, it felt just like the cartoon. If there was one complaint, it would be the last couple pages. Not because they were bad in and of themselves, but because they set up this garbage. Now I normally don’t write negative reviews, but I paid for this so I think I’m entitled to review it.

First of all, the concept of a future where the bad guys rule the world isn’t new. It’s been featured in several cartoons, like G.I. Joe A Real American Hero showing us an alternate universe where Cobra rules. It’s interesting as a possible future, but in no way shape or form would I want it to be THE future. So that’s strike 1 already. Strike 2 is that the new Thundercats are completely forgotten about, except for Bengali who is killed off. Seriously, I would have given it 2 stars if they had remembered Pumyra & Lynx-O but alas they remain completely absent outside of flashbacks until the next miniseries. Come to think of it Snarfer wasn’t in the previous miniseries either, but that was acceptable since it would be easy to assume he went back to the planet of the Snarfs. Strike 3 is what they did to Cheetara and the Thunderkittens. As Alien To You “The Weekly Reader” noted, Cheetara had telekinetic powers now so she should have been able to kick the Mutants’ butts when they tried to have their ways with her, and she might even have been able to beat the whole Mutant army singlehandedly but the writer conveniently forgot she has that power. How can he reference bad episodes like Sideswipe, but forget about great episodes like The Telepathy Beam? And Mumm-Ra’s implied pedo/necrophilia with Wily Kit & Kat is just too disgusting for words. This pretty much crushed my expectations of a great post-series Thundercats comic, and the higher-ups must have felt the same way since after only one more future miniseries they would switch to telling prequel stories, which were all excellent by the way. If you love the Thundercats do not read this; just pretend that after a few months someone went into the Book of Omens & told Lion-O what was going on & they put the pieces together and realized that Mumm-Ra was up to something and made plans to stop him. Oh yeah I forgot strike 4, the Thundercats not having a military on standby. That was really stupid. Avoid this at all costs.
