    Alright folks, I think we're just about there. I think we may be just an issue or two away from Thunderbolts reaching that place of absolute insanity that I've been looking forward to since issue #1. I can't deny, I started reading this series because of Deadpool, and it seems to me he's about to be let off the leash. This isn't the best place for you to start if you aren't already reading this series, but if you are, then let the train keep rolling down the tracks, not only is I a good read, but surely you want to see hy I fully expect the Regeneratin' Degenerate to be in a very bad mood when issue #9 comes around.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 17, 2013

    Thunderbolts, as a title, has a difficult task in the Marvel Universe: a team of legitimate killers with really only one traditional "hero" (ironically Venom, of all people) in their ranks, but the book has to sustain likability of the characters, or it risks treading into Suicide Squad territory, which is a fine concept for a book, but not really what Thunderbolts is all about. What's even more impressive is Daniel Way giving the characters unexpected depth beyond what's expected of them: Punisher and Elektra finding something in each other beyond "the kill," Deadpool's surprisingly tragic heartbreak at that situation, General Ross actually back in a position of leadership, and Venom as the surprising moral center of the group. This issue's also a great jumping-on point as it's the start of a whole new story arc. Read Full Review

    With the latest installment of the series in the books, the second arc of this new volume is going pretty well, though moving a bit too slowly. Hopefully the pace will pick up a bit before the end of this run, which will be Daniel Way's last. This has been a fun series thus far, and while there's not a whole lot going on in this particular issue, the series as a whole is doing quite well. Read Full Review

    “Thunderbolts” #8 is all right, but like with last issue (where it was more justified), I'm left waiting for things to really kick in. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Apr 21, 2013

    I'm enjoying Thunderbolts quite a bit. I know it's no longer anything like it originally was but it's working. This issue while fun, slipped in quality, presented interesting ideas that were oddly implemented and made the story predictable. The whole subplot involving Deadpool, Punisher and Elektra continues to drag as well, taking up too much space. Phil Noto's pencils are great and give the book a very cinematic feel. I like Way's writing, but I fear I can see where this is going. Thunderbolts #8 gets 2.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    So far this was the best issue of all the series, very interesting plot, good action scenes and astonishing art! Read Full Review

    IGN - Tony Couto Apr 22, 2013

    This book is better left unread, as it does little to nothing to contribute to these characters. But if you do read it, you will find lots of 'buddabudda' onomatopoeia. So there's that. Read Full Review
