Every time I look at images of the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents I wonder why they weren't a bigger deal. They look like a superhero team that has a vast, deep history. I think this is due to the fact that a few classic comic book artists drew them so well. Wally Wood and George Perez for example. T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and George Tuska is, therefore, a good pairing. Tuska is a classic comic book artist. He's a journeyman, rather than a titan on the horizon of comics history. These images prove his capabilities, though also reinforce his generic style which leads to his journeyman status. It might be how my tastes have changed now that I'm older and have actually made some comic books, but I'll take a journeyman with solid skills like Tuska working regularly in comics over pretty much any comic book artist superstar of the last thirty years.
