    I'm always on the hunt for new books to whet my appetite and Dynamite hit the spot with this one. Darnell and Ross hopefully have great things in mind planned for Mr. Cannon, and let's see where they can take us from here. Read Full Review

    Just remember, there aren't as many pretty pictures as there is dialogue, so for those driven more by action than words, this will not be the comic for you. Read Full Review

    Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt, its an average story that tries to aspire to the heights of the character, but those heights are never matched in the end. A nice effort but I cant give this an overwhelming recommendation. As I said, youre either going to love it or hate it, theres no in between on this one. Read Full Review

    "Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt" #1 feels like a bad idea for a series; why not just have Darnell and Ross create a brand-new character rather than twisting an old one? Add in a lack of flair or pep and you end up with a swiftly forgettable comic. I'm delighted that Morisi's story finally got to see print (with a nice text introduction from Mark Waid, who had commissioned the story back in the day), but it doesn't make up for everything else included.
