    Now this is NOT a Fear Itself tie-in. But who cares? The issue was freaking awesome anyway. Non stop action from page to page. It was also really cool to see EVERYONE get in on the action. No Thunderbolt was ignored. Especially Man-Thing. Read Full Review

    Another rollicking fun story with lots of great action and story crammed into one issue. The art isn't bad, but does make me miss and appreciate the series' regular artists. Read Full Review

    Thunderbolts, like Uncanny X-Men, is a Fear Itself tie-in I've been enjoying immensely. It's consistently producing great stories, even if their "big gun" names (Luke Cage who?) aren't present. That's what I like to see: consistent quality. Read Full Review

    "Thunderbolts" this month gets the ball fully rolling on the B-Team's revolt, but as said before, it's much more of a transition issue than we normally have on the book. Still, where it's going looks quite promising, and I don't think any "Thunderbolts" fan will have room to complain. I'm certainly up for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Although it's slapped across the front cover Fear Itself has almost nothing to do with what's happening on the panel. The frog army attack is schemed by Sin, but the versatile invasion force is an invention stolen from Zemo, who made a surprising return last issue. More surprising is his association with Fixer and how that plotline develops in this issue. Parker is doing an excellent job of keeping the continuous subplots moving and trying to incorporate all of the players. Read Full Review
