    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 31, 2022

    Thunderbolts #1 is an explosive super-fun start to a series with historically good runs. Not only is it well-paced and exciting from cover to cover, but it offers a solid reason to exist in an era of superhero books that can be rote and uninteresting. Read Full Review

    This is a very strong start to the new series. Everything comes together nicely in a well-written, well-drawn issue that sets up all the characters, pits them against some meaningful villains and establishing the new team with panache. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Aug 29, 2022

    Not being a huge Hawkeye fan, I was kind of on the fence when this book came down the pipe. With that said, what I found was an enjoyable little romp that succeeds in hits aim to bring the Thunderbolts back in a way that fits the current Marvel city scape. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 31, 2022

    Thunderbolts #1 is a fresh start, putting a new team to the test. Humorous dialogue and delightful art is blended with a story with heaps of potential in an opening issue that doesnt like slowing down. Its a team that feels different from others and that is ultimately a good thing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 31, 2022

    Final Thoughts:Thunderbolts #1 is a surprisingly solid setup issue that brings a new team together under the authority of Mayor Luke Cage. The introductions are well-paced and shown rather than simply told. There are intriguing hints that not every team member is problem-free. And the rationale behind forming a new team makes sense for the story Zub is telling. Read Full Review

    Once again, Marvel assembles a cool super-team with a secret (that being "Hawkeye is useless.") Still, it feels like a book that expects a short run. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Spencer Perry Aug 31, 2022

    Like nearly every other attempt at rebooting Thunderbolts, there's a kernel of a good idea here, but it seems to be the latest in a lineage of "Marvel has no clear idea what they want the Thunderbolts to be, but it's still time to try again." Read Full Review
