    More than anything, this issue just lacks purpose. The extended combat sequences only serve to reiterate character relationships we've grown familiar with already. The final pages, which set up a larger conflict and a new opponent for the T-Bolts, could probably just as easily have bumped to the next issue, leaving this chapter open to be eliminated entirely. It's not an auspicious start for Parker, but given what's coming next I have to give him the benefit of the doubt for now. He still has the chance to pull this ailing book out of the gutter, and I hope for the T-Bolts' sake he can do it. Read Full Review

    Overall, as much as I want to like "Thunderbolts," there's a definite sense that the momentum left by Ellis and Deodato's run on the series has definitely expired. Parker is as competent a choice as any to keep the book coasting along, but we're past the point where that's enough -" the series badly needs to be re-energized. Whether the current team is capable of turning around the book's growing sense of malaise is a far less certain prospect. Read Full Review

    If you like to watch your favorite villains pretending to be heroes and shooting and beating each other, this issue is for you. Otherwise, nothing much changes in the Thunderbolts universe, so if you need to skip an issue, it shouldn't affect how you read next one. Read Full Review
