FEAR ITSELF TIE-IN! Juggernaut has brought destruction to the American Midwest. His team - the alpha squad of the Thunderbolts - have caught the full fury of Cain Marko joined to the ancient force of The Serpent. It all comes down to this! A stand has to be taken and the worst threats of a lost age will face the worst threats of today- the combined squads of the THUNDERBOLTS!

    This issue was solid as always, if not a little plodding. It's a cooldown issue between the madness of Juggernaut and the conclusion of Fear Itself, where the T-Bolts will hopefully have a place. It would be a shame to see them lost in the shuffle with such strong writing, and with the team finally starting to work together, it would be a crime to not explore that. Read Full Review

    This is getting to be routine now, but another very good Thunderbolts issue. Jeff Parker is the only Marvel writer who has taken the bull by the horns and made Fear Itself service his own stories instead of passively letting the oncoming train run him over. And Declan Shalvey is great. Read Full Review

    Still, if Thunderbolts can deliver this well for its core fans every issue (and recently, it has done exactly that) then maybe it'll pick up readers through word of mouth alone. It's a clich to say it, but despite being a mid-level performer, "Thunderbolts" is quickly proving itself one of Marvel's best titles. Perhaps not always perfect, but it's consistently enjoyable and, most importantly, providing a read unlike anything else in the line right now. Read Full Review

    Now this is NOT a Fear Itself tie-in. What the hell? What's the point of teasing us with an incredible fight last issue just to completely forget about it this issue. I wanted to see more Juggernaut destruction. Read Full Review
