    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jan 15, 2014

    This book remains one of pure, violent fun. Its not so vicious as to need warnings, other than for those who cant handle any kind of humor with their dead serious characters. The art is over-the-top enough to suit the satirical nature of the book, and anytime this team travels in a van, it perfectly communicates the kind of team they are. They dont have a Quinjet, they dont even have a super-practical Quinjetta, they have a van. Theyre the antihero supergroup and if they were a band, theyd be playing amazing fairground shows.

    I have to mention Israel Silva (Colorist) he did a wonderful job in setting this "dark tone" to the book. In past issues i always thought it were overly colorful... Great work by Israel Silva. Read Full Review

    Now, if I didn't know what made me read this book in the first place, what made me want to pick the next issue up is even more of a question mark. It was entertaining, fun, and dynamic, though it didn't have much more to it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jan 17, 2014

    The artwork doesn't evenly match the Soule's handling of the script, but overall, "Thunderbolts #20.NOW" is a solid introduction to the series and to Soule's deceptively casual and fun vision for the team, and the plot promises to go to even more exciting places next month. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jan 19, 2014

    The story may be a little slow and there isn't that much entertaining action this time around, yet the small amount of character development, some of the jokes and the general upgrade in terms of art makes this issue acceptable. Not the best this series has seen, but certainly not the worst. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie Jan 18, 2014

    Ive been very high on Charles Soules work on this title since he took over the writing duties, but in all honesty it just felt like he was just going through the motions in this particular issue. Even Deadpools few jokes come off as half-hearted and fail to breath any real life into this one. The only real positive I have here is that the bulk of the set-up should now be out of the way and we can get to the fun stuff next issue. Read Full Review

    I like the idea behind the Thunderbolts: a group of antiheroes fulfilling a series of missions and trying to relate to one another. This All-New Marvel Now issue deals with the occupation of a new secret base for the group, some interpersonal relationship and a new objective, for which the help of Johnny Blaze is needed. The comic is funny (particularly well written is Deadpool) and badass, but it somewhat lacks creativity, in its final page reveal.
