The Civil War tie-in is worth recommending for no other reason than the intriguing possibility of seeing Zemo make some major noise following Iron Man's proposal as the war rages on. The cliffhanger, in typical T-Bolts style, ups the ante and adds another layer to the conflict. Thunderbolts fans should find a lot to enjoy in issue #103, and readers just stopping in for the Civil War tie-in might be surprised by the quality of what they read. Read Full Review
To put it all in perspective, this is a true Civil War tie-in because of the interaction between the Thunderbolts and Iron Man. The Thunderbolts are going to be key players during and after the Civil War miniseries is published and its going to be very interesting how this B-List series with its C-List characters manage to play in an A-List storyline. Marvel isn’t leaving anyone behind with Civil War, and its nice to see the Thunderbolts playing a key role in things for a change. Read Full Review
The whole book lacks Nicieza's usual spark. It's just filler to tie-in to Marvel's Big Stupid Event. Grummett's work hasn't lost its charm. I like for instance that Gyrich has gained a few pounds, and Iron Man's resemblance to Riker from Star Trek: Next Generation is laudable. This just makes his actions appear doubly stupid. Imagine if the Enterprise crew defied Starfleet by heading into the Neutral Zone to prevent the Federation headed by corrupt Admirals eager to go to war from attacking an innocent Romulan Empire, and Riker sided with Starfleet. That's the stupidity of The Civil War in a nutshell. Pun intended. Read Full Review
