    Juggling two casts and two stories is no simple feat; yet Jeff Parker pulls it off with ease. I feel I got two fully realised issues IN ONE!!! Both stories moved forward, with plenty of character moments diced through-out. Honestly, we got more story in this one issue than two (maybe even three) issues by other writers. I'm excited to see where the Timebolts have landed next; AND for the eagerly anticipated throw down between the Dark Avengers and Sultan Magus (STOP TEASING US, JEFF PARKER!!!). Once again this comic remains one of the very best series on sale. Kudos! Read Full Review

    Both Declan Shalvey and Kev Walker get to work on this issue, and if I remember right, this is the first time that it has happened since the pair began working on the title. I've complimented their styles before, and they mesh together well to give the issue a consistent feel but still manage to differentiate nicely between the Thunderbolts and Dark Avengers sections of the book. This looks to continue for the future issues, so this good start is a great sign. Also, it seems that John Tyler Christopher will be sticking around for cover duties for a while, which is brilliant - look it up, if you don't believe me.Both the Dark Avengers and the Thunderbolts have had one issue to themselves, and now it's time they learned to share, as each gets pretty much half an issue for their own escapades, joining together to create a surprisingly cohesive whole. Both teams' storylines are heading in fun directions, and if there's one thing this title gets right, it's fun. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 11, 2012

    "Dark Avengers" #177 may have a new title and half of a new cast, but it's very much to Parker, Walker, and Shalvey's credit that it's welcoming to everyone, new or old. It's been a relief to find the title shift not an off-putting moment for the book. This "Thunderbolts" fan is happy with the end result, and plans on sticking around no matter what the comic is renamed. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 19, 2012

    At the end of the day, this series is really more to be enjoyed than to be relished, more satisfying than nourishing, even if the satisfaction lasts for hardly a few days. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 17, 2012

    There are two stories about two teams in this book, and only one of them really works for me, leaving me with the cumulative effect of channel-surfing on a Friday night. Read Full Review
