A Better Look At Marvel's New Thunderbolts
Spinning out of Avengers Standoff, it seems, these appear to be the new Thunderbolts, modelled on the original nineties launch issue… Still one guy in silhouette…  but that looks like the actual original team with original identities… And not these guys:     Spinning out of Avengers Standoff, it seems, these appear to be the new Thunderbolts, modelled on the[...]
Amazon Fishing For Carnage, Thunderbolts And Mockingbirds
The titanic events of the first volume have sent Carnage across the globe with the team trying to catch him far in his rear-view.   And with Thunderbolts Classic Vol 3 (New Printing), giving us five  Thunderbolts trade paperbacks in a few months, and with that Citizen V image from San Diego Comic Con still unclaimed, something is in the[...]

Must suck to be an alien milkman. You know that's what's going to happen to The Thing once the Fantastic Four comic goes away, just as Thunderbolts is going away today… Captain America asks the question everyone asks in Death of Wolverine: Deadpool & Captain America, the book that even Tom Breevort must have blinked at when[...]

Thunderbolts, After Original Sin
 I am told to expect the nature of the Thunderbolts comic to undergo some very big changes after Original Sin. The book began as the story of supervillains masquerading as superheroes, and eventually coming to rather enjoy the change It then morphed into a fighting area type book Then a government sanctioned black ops book[...]

You cheat. Obamacare, avoided, in Nova. So, we have a new weakness for Venom in Thunderbolts Magnesium It's a reason for Flash Thompson not to eat raw spinach before putting on the suit, then High in magnesium, you see. Very little in sweets and candy though So the cast of Adventure Time: Candy Capers #6 would be next[...]

Just… no pressure, okay? Elektra has better success with hers in Thunderbolts. But that's because she's Elektra. Well, if Sabrina The Teenage Witch can get a copy of The Necronomicon, I suppose Elvis Presley might as well get one too in Age Of Darkness/Reanimator. So… what have you been reading today? Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London[...]
The Secret History Of The Inhumans… Or The Mormons? (Infinity Spoilers)
And Thunderbolts? Well, it gets a reference in Infinity #3… But mostly it's worth it for this recurring joke in the actual comic.   Infinity, New Avengers, Captain Marvel and Thunderbolts are published today Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London Currently running Sophie's World, an exhibition highlighting the photographs of Sophie Aldred by Steve Cook. [...]

But sometimes the best laughs in Thunderbolts are the ones where the characters just play completely to type And exposes just how innately ridiculous they are to the rest of the Marvel Universe. In Wonder Woman, War is talking about Justin Bieber isn't he? And if he isn't, then Superior Octopus-Man in today's Nova really is trying[...]
Blowing Up Infinity, Emotionally
There's also Thunderbolts… Although, you may have to wait till next week to see if their New York gang mission turns all Turf on us… Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London, currently exhibiting the Dead Cats work of Christian Ward.   So Avengers gives us some major Infinity continuity tie-ins, as the biggest galactic Alliance go toe-to-toe with[...]
Marvel Ch-Ch-Changes, From Thunderbolts To X-Force

"Steve, just got the pencils for Elektra's appearance in Thunderbolts #1." "And?" "Her breasts just aren't big enough" "But I made them double-D" "I know, sorry, look just move that pencil line a centimetre or so down" "But she can't walk like that" "She can, she's a ninja" "Oh, okay On their way." Cyclops goes back[...]
Pop Culture Hounding Marvel NOW! and Ryan Ferrier
Chris Thompson writes for Bleeding Cool… just before he heads off to Malta! [audio:] Taylor and I have mixed views about this week's Marvel Now! books, and find we don't see eye-to-eye with Daniel Way's Thunderbolts #1 or Jonathan Hickman's much-anticipated Avengers #1. Taylor also chats with Ryan Ferrier (Tiger Lawyer and Challenger Comics) about his career thus[...]
Warren Ellis Thunderbolts Hits 99c On ComiXology
Working its way around the world, until it hits the US and goes official, it looks like Warren Ellis and Mike Deodato's Thunderbolts run that span out of Civil War will be hitting 99 cents on Monday morning… it's already at 69p in the UK. And it's joined by Warren Ellis Forum member Matt Fraction with[...]
Punisher's Clothing Choice Is Rather Suspect
He's not known for the wisest of clothing choices. But does Punisher's red skull shirt on the cover of the new Thunderbolts comic for Marvel NOW hint at something else? If not, why is he wearing it? Would a crime fighter in the Marvel Universe, and a military veteran at that, proudly wear a giant red skull on his[...]
Red Hulk Stars In Thunderbolts #1 From Marvel NOW, Daniel Way And Steve Dillon
Last week Newsarama teased "Lightning" as a new Marvel NOW! title from Daniel Way and Steve Dillon and everyone guessed it was a new Thunderbolts comic They were right. What not everyone guessed was that it would have the General Thunderbolt Ross, the Red Hulk in the lead. But this is also the previously-rumoured team featuring the Punisher and[...]
Marvel NOW Teases SURVIVE! From Dennis Hopeless And Kev Walker
But this looks a little… bloodier. This followed yesterday's similar tease. The Punisher team of Daniel Way and Steve Dillon from yesterday does suggest that possibly Punisher may be leading a new Thunderbolts team And maybe just maybe Deadpool might be in it… If past Marvel form is to be expected look forward to more teases this week,[...]
Jeff Parker And Declan Shalvey's Thunderbolts Becomes Dark Avengers In June
Marvel were set to announce this at Wondercon.  But it's just gone public on the Diamond site, so… In June, Thunderbolts will be renamed Dark Avengers, with issues #175 and #176. Smart viewers may have noted in this week's Avengers who might be making up the team… Jeff Parker and Declan Shalvey will still be creating the book[...]
Those Marvel Double Ships For June In Full
here are the double shipping comics in June. Amazing Spider-Man #687 and #688 – just like every month. Amazing Spider-Man Movie #1 and #2 – and a trade paperback collecting them both all in the same month.

Thunderbolts To End In May… And Change To Something Else
The solicitation for May's Thunderbolts #174 was pretty telling. • The Clash of the Bolts Concludes! • In their most dire hour, the Fixer makes a devastating decision! • Zemo's legacy of evil destroy our present or can the Thunderbolts pulls the world back from oblivion?! End of the world stuff Or, rather, end of the title stuff. I can[...]
Thunderbolts #163 Cover Takes On The DC Relaunch
Applause to the cover department of Marvel who decided to make the cover to this week's issue of Thunderbolts… a little similar in tone to certain comics being published by DC this week Nice use of font size, folks. Okay, it's probably a reference to the very first issue of Thunderbolts But they would have to[...]
Marvel's New Nomad, Old Moon Knight And More…
Asrar were on Thunderbolts from #136 But I didn't know that Power Man and Iron Fist were members Looks like the deal Luke Cage  made with Norman Osborn is coming home to roost as Osborn's personal assassins… I should write these solicitations, they're really fun And at least the French can't have all the fun doing[...]
September Spider-Man, X-Men, Thunderbolts Credits Revealed
And Thunderbolts #136 is written by Rick Remender, drawn by Mahmud Asrar and Francesco Mattina, and coloured by Frank Martin. It's not much I know, But how did I come by this information when Marvel have been so careful in the solicitations they have sent out to the likes of Newsarama and CBR? Easy They kept[...]
