    As a writer, Soule has a broad grasp of tone and atmosphere. He can do grim and serious, as his spotlights Mercy and Punisher demonstrated, but given the cast, it's even more remarkable that Soule and Palo's "Thunderbolts" #15 is a fun, lighthearted read. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Sep 18, 2013

    As it is right now, the story is amusing thanks to the characters playing off of each other and trouble they go through of trying to get their information. It's fun to read, but I'm not sure if the portrayal of Punisher and Elektra here is all that accurate (I really haven't read much of them in the past). Deadpool is certainly amusing and I do like the scene with him on the subway with the little girl. It goes by quickly, but I'm left interested in seeing where this goes. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 21, 2013

    What's also nice, but not in an overly abundant manner, is the colorization by Guru eFX. It's nothing that knocks the whole art out of the park, yet it's competently made. The light effects are present, though not in a overwhelming manner, with the shadows and the light of the day being well-represented. There is also a nice amount of degradation in some key areas that does enhance the better aspects of the art, or at least hide the lesser parts well. It's some nice work, yet it doesn't go further than that. There are some problems with Venom's characterization and the art clearly won't be to everyone's taste, but the mix of dark humor combined with the story and its direction makes this issue a nice read nonetheless.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Sep 19, 2013

    Thunderbolts #15 does a solid job of walking the line between maintaining series independence and tying into an event. Soule delivers a comedic tale getting primed for some explosive action. Art issues exist but don't damn the book, but any readers coming simply for Infinity action may as well wait for issue #16. Read Full Review

    And the script might be more to blame for that than the artwork. After all there are some fantastic names attached with his project in the artwork. Including my all time favourite artist, Paul Pope. The colouring is done by Jordie Belaire and he does a pretty tight job. My only complaint with this issue starts and ends on the script, it felt almost a little synthetic. Like the writer was trying too hard to be gritty and edgy and in your face. And that's no good. Until we can get our hands on more issues, this one could go either way. Read Full Review

    Punisher Central - Ivo Santos Sep 18, 2013

    I have talk about pretty much of the entertaining level in the "writing" section. This book don't have the action that the previous issue had but the pace of the story is great. The team has to deal with two things the Paguros and the invasion. I'm quite curious too see what this will lead. Is there some consequences to The Leader's actions? Either way good issue.

    Marvel Disassembled - Michael Bowie Sep 23, 2013

    I really believe that this title can find its footing. Charles Soule's writing is solid. Now we just have to get it away from the Infinity event, and have Jefte Palo draw characters far away as little as possible and we'll be rolling. Read Full Review
