    Now this is what I'm talking about. This is what Thunderbolts should be, and it's one of the best books Marvel's putting out right now. It's also an example to follow when it comes to inter-title crossovers. I didn't have to read the tie-in Avengers Academy issues, my enjoyment of this wasn't diminshed by not having read them, but I'm still intrigued to go check those issues out now - - because the whole notion of the Academy coming to get "scared straight" is really clever.

    I'll admit, I am a little annoyed that we got a baitandswitch from Marvel as this issue doesn't continue the action of Avengers Academy #3, but instead happens alongside it and, ultimately, spoils some of the action of the yettobereleased Avengers Academy #4. That being said, this is a fun read. It's a very loose, somewhat shallow action issue, but its fast pace and memorable moments kept my interest all along. I especially enjoyed Read Full Review

    Lots of fun, lots of action. These to me are the foundations of a comic worth buying, and “Thunderbolts” has been maintaining this quality ever since Parker and Walker came on board to ring in the Heroic Age with style and audacity. This really is good, solid entertainment, and well worth your buying dollar. Check it out! Read Full Review

    Overall, this title is definitely gaining some steam and momentum, as Parker uses his odd cast to his best advantage, and Walker keeps step with him every step of the way, as he matches each great script with some very good artwork. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Forced crossovers such as this can kill any momentum a title has going for it. I have my concerns regarding the upcoming Shadowland chapters, but here Parker proves that he's capable of building a competent story around the most awkward of tie-ins. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 20, 2010

    Overall, this issue was fun, but for the most part forgettable. It's a nice introduction to this odd lot of characters, but it is largely hookless. Nothing in this issue is compelling enough for me to come back, but I can understand why fans of certain characters would be interested in checking in each month and I certainly enjoyed reading about characters I'd never give time of day to. Like "Atlas," Parker has a little more freedom here, and he uses it to have fun with the storytelling. Read Full Review
