    I was pleasantly surprised to find this book both well-constructed and fun, not at all the 'Dethstrike Bludforce' angst-fest that I worried it could turn into. There's nostalgia here (on a number of different levels, for a number of different eras) but Thunderstrike isn't a 90′s tale, nor should you categorize it based on the first volume.
