    Any comic that can throw in an appearance by the medieval Black Knight has my interest, but to throw a line of dialog into the Knight's mouth that recalls the hilarity of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (one line!) earns my money and my strongest recommendation. You've seen or heard it elsewhere, my comrades in reviewing have said it, and I've said it: read this book. This is the one book that you didn't know you were missing, and shouldn't be.

    Outer Realm Comics - Ellis J. Wells Jan 21, 2012

    Another exceptional issue, from the best Thunderbolts writer since Fabian. This is truly the new "golden age" of Thunderbolts. Exploring King Arthur's Court and the sinister mystery behind the dungeon's of Camelot is original and fun (as all the time-travel arcs have been). Is it too much to hope the veiled reference to Morgan le Fay will induce her to appear next issue? Maybe Moonstone and Morgan le Fay can have a rematch? Though I am very much looking forward to the inevitable Satana vs. Merlyn. SWEET CHRISTMAS, this is a wonderful issue. All fantasy role-players will adore this issue, just as I have.

    Parker does some intelligent writing here and develops a far more interesting story than just a simple fight. I'm a big fan of the legends of King Arthur, Merlin, and Lancelot, but Parker writes something new into the age-old story; something sinister and devious yet logical and undeniably Arthurian. It would be hard to call yourself a nerd and not love this book right now. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jan 24, 2012

    Books of pure fun, yet not lacking in craft, are sorely lacking these days, which makes a title like this one all the more precious. Read Full Review
