I still can't completely say what I think of Jeff Parker's Thunderbolts run so far. He's worked hard to get the team beyond its one-dimensional roots, but the actual plot has revolved heavily around guest stars that he's already shown great success with. The pieces are there, but I need to see an arc without the AoA crutch before I can weigh in one way or the other. Read Full Review
The outcome of the struggle between Thunderbolts and Atlas holds no major surprise for either side, but the aftermath of the battle provides some of the more surprising elements of this story. Parker drops a surprise ending in this issue that he takes time to set up, but I personally didn't see it coming. While it wasn't shocking, it was a surprise that added more consequence and realism to this adventure. Where things go from here, as the Thunderbolts prepare to join the Siege of Asgard, remains to be seen. If Parker has his way, though, I am certain the Siege-related issues of this title will be filled with more surprises. Read Full Review
