Who or what is Unit 23? Luke Cage must lead his new Thunderbolts deep below on their deadliest mission and face the horrors that mankind can become. While S.H.I.E.L.D. was shut down, a now-missing government squad was charged with guarding a cavern full of impure Terrigen crystals...and if these powerful elements morph Inhumans with wild transformations, what in the world will they do to humans? It's a volatile environment- and a bad time for a challenge to authority from The Juggernaut!

    With his creepy disappearing acts and awkward dialogue, Ghost has quickly become my favorite character in the book. As with Moonstone, the fact that he leans more towards the right side of the law is a perfect foil for examining and developing the rest of the team. The scene in which Moonstone, Crossbones and Juggernaut debate whether to fight or flee stands as the most enjoyable in the issue and acts as the perfect showcase for the vastly different and conflicting moral codes present within the team. Kev Walker's artwork is gorgeous for the most part but the action in the later half of the book was difficult to follow at times, and his rendition of Valkyrie is both interesting and disturbing. I can't recommend this book enough - you need to be reading Thunderbolts. Read Full Review

    Love the creative team, love the characters, but the story's starting to wear thin. What's the point? Where is this story taking me? I'm wasn't sure, and that annoys me. A rare miss for me this month on a comic that I otherwise love the hell out of. Read Full Review

    Parker is doing some excellent character work with the new Thunderbolts team, but the inclusion of the old cast seems more for nostolgia's sake than story based at this time with their limited roles and page time. Story lacks a little direction, but the focus is on how the team works (or I guess we should say doesn't work) together, so this is forgiveable. Definitely worth checking out to see if you'll like this new iteration of the Thunderbolts and a book I'm still enjoying quite a bit. Read Full Review
