    The way the chase for the Spear of Odin concludes feels like a cop out, where everything comes crashing down. It is very abrupt. Though the ending is sudden I can still recommend this book. I say, check it out. Read Full Review

    This team -- Parker, Alves, Pereira, Martin, and Deschesne -- blend together very nicely, and the end result is a comic that I found to be considerably more entertaining than I expected it to be before I opened it up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tyler Parker Mar 24, 2010

    I have a feeling that these three issues will feel like something of a waste after all is said and done. It's really a no win situation for the reader. If you picked up the book for the Siege elements, then you quickly realize that there is no sense of urgency or weight to the story. Norman has already been taken down (in the events of Siege #3) and a new, greater threat has emerged in the form of Sentry. Who cares about the Thunderbolts fighting the Mighty Avengers? On the other hand, if you were looking for a great Thunderbolts story, you were robbed of a potentially interesting story and instead given a run-of-the mill tie-in issue bordering on tedium.
