    Now this is a Fear Itself tie-in. This is what we needed to happen in the last two issues to make it a credible tie-in. Finally, the battle we have been waiting for begins. Read Full Review

    After a couple issues of uncertainty, both this issue and the last have cemented Thunderbolts on my pull list. I legitimately had a fun time reading through the mind-probing sequence, and would recommend it wholly. Seeing all these characters interact with each other while remaining individuals is great: too many team books just smoosh them all together. Read Full Review

    Being an event tie-in is a handicap for an issue, but this is about as good as it can be. Parker advances a few Fear Itself plots while continuing to play with some of his ongoing Thunderbolts themes. Really nice art from Shalvey and Martin. Read Full Review

    Thunderbolts #160Posted: Friday, July 8, 2011By: Jamil Scalese Jeff ParkerDeclan Shalvey, Frank Martin Jr. (c)Marvel Jeff Parker makes event tie-ins look good. After rocking it when the Thunderbolts participated in the Shadowland saga, the Fear Itself issues have provided some excellent connections to the event while still doing justice to the characters and themes of the previous 30 issues. Still, Im kind of glad this one was regular-sized and not five dollars like the last issue. Skipping meals gets old after breakfast. Read Full Review

    Parker continues to do what he does best in this issue: write great stories with any and every character he touches. With the "Fear Itself" trade dress on the cover of a book, many writers (and a few artists) might be blindsided into mailing the story in, or might deliver paper thin characters squeezed into a sidebar plothole, but not Parker. Parker embraces "Fear Itself" and gives his "Thunderbolts" readers a reason to enjoy this crossover with Marvel's summer event. Read Full Review

    I am still on board because I know Jeff Parker is aiming us towards high thrills (his last arc before the Heroic Age and the Hyperion storyline demonstrate how flat out fun he can write this title). I will just be super happy when this latest crossover is done so he can get back to it. Read Full Review
