    I winced at the thought of a fill-in artist coming in, but Declan Shalvey steps up and delivers one impressive looking comic. His gritty style meshes nicely with the subdued nature of the issue and helps focus the attention more on the characters themselves rather than who they're punching this month. The fighting ramps up next issue though, and I have little doubt this creative team will deliver a tie-in you won't regret purchasing. Read Full Review

    Parker's "Thunderbolts" is still in early days, but it's been a long time since I've found this title so thoroughly enjoyable. Heroism and villainy are excellently twisted together in this title, and that's exactly what this comic should be. "Thunderbolts" is a must-read book each month. Check it out. Read Full Review

    So let's talk opinions. Once again a nice character building issue. Except for Moonstone, who seems to be a one-thought psychopath, the characters here are great. Once again, its nice to see that Juggernaut is still a villain at heart when he lets Crossbones get some vengeance. I still want more Man-Thing. (I guess rats have no fear) I kind of figured that the Thunderbolts would enter the Shadowlands since Cage is their leader. But seriously, 32 ninjas vs the Juggernaut? If the ninjas win, I'm suing Marvel for defamation of character. Once again the art is sub-par, in my opinion, but the story more than makes up for it. I can't wait to see the bad guys cut loose next issue. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    If I've come off as being overly bitter and harsh on the book, it's only because Parker and Walker have proven themselves to be more than capable of delivering great entertainment, which makes a filler issue like this that much more painful to endure. I didn't care for the art, thought the plot was nonexistent, and resent having one of my favorite teams get their asses handed to them in one a mediocre storyline like Shadowland. Not only do you not need this issue, but I'll go on record now and say you probably shouldn't bother with next month's issue, either. Read Full Review
