    Comics Bulletin - Bill Frye Dec 16, 2008

    There isn't much holding back this entertaining series at this point. It's fun to watch these characters interact and deceive each other; it's a train wreck that won't end and only continues to escalate in damage. A new status quo is in place as the team only seems to be heading down a darker path. Read Full Review

    In the end, what we're left with is a fitting conclusion to this latest chapter of the Thunderbolts, and an entertaining transition into whatever twisted road lay ahead for Norman Osborn's team of psychopaths. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Dec 18, 2008

    Some books struggle through transitional periods, but Thunderbolts clearly is not one of them. The action is intense, the dialogue is a blast to read, and Marvel's least heroic team continues to be a source of great, edgy entertainment. Thunderbolts #127 is well worth checking out for a good time, especially if you are interested in seeing how the groundwork for Dark Reign is being laid out. Read Full Review

    "Thunderbolts" seems poised to take an even bigger role in the "Dark Reign" Marvel Universe, though the team will clearly undergo some personnel changes based on events in recent issues. But Diggle and De La Torre are a perfect fit for a more sinister, more caustic brand of "Thunderbolt" action, and that sounds good to me. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Dec 21, 2008

    Artist Roberto de la Torres style is reminiscent of Mike Deodato who drew this series during Warren Ellis run, but with much less photo referencing of major celebrities. One thing which stood out for me this issue was his camera angles. The panels each take advantage of very extreme angles. His shot-reverse shot dialogues even take a more extreme look. The conversation between Bullseye and Moonstone employs a shot-reverse shot but the reverse shot is at a steep angle looking down which allows for a different but effective perspective of the discussion. He employs these angles in the action sequences as well, which come across as security camera angles at times, which works well during scenes where this perspective would be expected as characters try to escape each other. De la Torres works well in this series so far, being able to employ different techniques to add drama and suspense to the scenarios. Read Full Review

    A nice character study, wrapped around some fighty-fighty, well-executed. Read Full Review
