    It's not stop action as the Thunderbolts kick the crap out of each other before Bullseye finishes off the "villains", all with beautiful artwork. If this doesn't turn your crank, I don't think any super hero comics will. Read Full Review

    That doesn't mean you shouldn't go ahead and buy this though. This and every one of the eleven previous issues, actually. If you don't like them after my glowing recommendation, then what can I say? There's always Marvel Adventures for you, I guess. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Jun 29, 2008

    Thunderbolts #121 is a good read that is a disappointment only when considering the great things that have come before it. The story and artwork feels rushed and the absence of half the roster is a bit annoying. Don't let that deter you though – this is still one of the best books on the shelf this week. Warren Ellis' run has been a must read for those who're into the darker side of the Marvel Universe. If you missed out, be sure to pick up the trades. So long Warren Ellis and Mike Deodato Jr., the Thunderbolts won't be the same without you. Read Full Review

    A little extra time might not have done anything for the story, but it would at least have helped out Deodato's art. Deodato really hit a new level with Thunderbolts. His pencils have been impressively detailed and moody. This month, the issue sports an annoyingly rushed feel. Generally, smaller panels are fine and retain Deodato's knack for detail. It's in the larger, more ambitious panels that the quality dips. I can understand Marvel wants to move the series forward, but a climactic issue like this really deserves the time it needs to shine. No offense to the writers that come on board in the future, but I'll probably always be looking back on these 12 issues and wanting more. Read Full Review
