All that exists, and all that ever will exists rests on the confrontation between two men who are the same man. Peter Cannon versus Peter Cannon, for the future of the canon. Who wins? Who loses? Peter Cannon. Evidently.

    A thunderously resonant conclusion that impresses with its impossibly satisfying finale. This is a creative team on fire and the world deserves more of their collaborations. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter May 29, 2019

    Be warned: PETER CANNON, THUNDERBOLT is a very cerebral read, which takes the audience from superhero comics to indie autobiographical comics to the world of formalism and the metatextual.

On one level, it's blatant, and on others it's understated, and that makes it a standout gem of a comic in a market that repeatedly fails to deliver entertainment. Read Full Review
