    Thunderbolts #5 is a fine ending to the series. But, it leaves us wanting more. Gutsen Glory and Eegro deserve arcs of their own exploring their history and backgrounds. Hopefully we get more with Zub at the hub. The series has balanced mystery, action, humor, and a great team dynamic and deserves more to expand all of that and entertain readers more.

    While the previous issues have often left something to be desired, artists Sean Izaakse with Netho Diaz (featuring inks by Izaakse and Victor Nava) give this one a more memorable flair than the others, in particular for how it explores the big villain's powers. Read Full Review

    I feel bad for writers who have to cram all the ideas they might have for a new team book into only five issues. This ending is a fine and somewhat simple ending to this excellent mini-series. Read Full Review
