  • Thunderbolts #10/11 Review (Spoilers)

    I decided to put these two together because while 10 was not good it could have been saved by a decent conclusion to this arc, Daniel Way’s final arc on the series. *sigh* My heart really isn’t in this one. Sorry guys. Thunderbolts: Red Scare Conclusion Writer: Daniel Way…

  • THUNDERBOLTS #131 REVIEW

    This issue concludes a four-part crossover that also spans Thunderbolts #130 and Deadpool #8-9.

Do they…

  • THUNDERBOLTS #130 Review

    Thunderbolts #130 presents part two of a four-part crossover that began in Deadpool #8 and continues in Deadpool #9 and Thunderbolts #131.
