A fab cosmic conclusion to by Fabian Nicieza's second run on Thunderbolts! This story first had it's beginnings in the New Thunderbolts collections have have steadily built since. Works well with Grummett's clean lined art and nice bright colorwork is a pleasure to look at. This is old fashioned, classic Marvel super-hero / villain story-telling. A fair dab epic one at that.

Messy ending for Nicieza's run. Ellis' next one is far better. :/

Nicieza offers a pretty amazing end to the run of the New Thunderbolts. It's a battle against the Grandmaster and beyond that it involves teams and teams of other Thunderbolt villains all helping to save the world. You couldn't make the scope bigger or the stakes higher.

Of course that means this volume is mostly large-scale fighting, and that gets a bit dull on the end.

On the bright side, Nicieza makes sure that he doesn't leave before he returns to the story of Moonstone, who's been absent for

It really feels like Nicieza was just getting started on things to come when his run on Thunderbolts ends. I've heard rumblings that he wasn't aware that he would be leaving T-bolts until he found out that Warren Ellis would be coming on. That's gotta suck.

The sad thing about Nicieza's run coming to an end and Ellis coming on is that Ellis does something similar to what he did on Stormwatch: he keeps a few characters and drops the rest (luckily here there is no crossover with Aliens to slaughter

I do enjoy the Thunderbolts but I have to say pretty much all of the stuff of theirs I've read with Baron Zemo in it has been pretty hard to follow, this one being the hardest. I know part of it is that I haven't read all of the back issues before this and don't know the full histories of these villains, but still I felt through most of this like consistently saying "What the hell just happened and why?".


On second reading this was a lot betrer. kik

Konečně dočteno. Jako celek to bylo... divné. Hodně divné. Spousta věcí mi stále není úplně jasná, ale asi mi to nijak nevadí.

Teď se ještě dokopat k tomu a přečíst těch chybějících padesát čísel co nejsou v boocích.

A tad confusing storyline about Zemo and the Grand Master in a fight for earth. Very action packed but ot much substance.

This was ok, pretty much your average comic book story, bit cheesy and the dialogue was not the best.

A fitting, if a bit rushed, end to Nicieza's Thunderbolts run.

I figured I'd wrap up the arc started in Civil War. This was enjoyable enough but nothing special.
