The Rundown: Clint Barton and the rest of the Thunderbolts have finally gotten their act together, or have they?
Things are starting to turn around for the Thunderbolts team. With a series of victories under their belts, some are making the media rounds giving interviews while Clint finds himself renewing an old relationship. Unfortunately, something doesn’t feel right. Clint keeps getting bombarded by doubts in the form of familiar faces that confront him with his personal sins.
At the same time, a huge threat emerges over the city. A threat the Thunderbolts find themselves facing alone. A threat that none of them seem to be able to stop. A threat that confronts Clint about his darkest fears as their handler makes a dangerous discovery.
The Story: Zub delivers a fun, interesting and engaging story in this issue. The plot is brilliant in its intricacy and had me surprised and delighted throughout. I continue to enjoy the overall vibe of this series and this issue brings some great character moments and drama that I look forward to seeing evolve and resolve.
The Art: The art is fun, lively and visually thrilling. A great looking issue that delivers some great character designs as well as action.
