Thunderbolts #130 Review

Written by Andy Diggle

Where I decided to pick up Supergirl this week, I officially dropped Thunderbolts, at least for the duration of this Deadpool crapshoot. As such, this isn't so much a review as a declaration of intent.

For those curious as to why I dropped it, the first part of the Deadpool crossover was absolutely terrible and failed to be serious nor comical and I wasn't even sure which part of the spectrum they were shooting for after reading it, making the read that much more painful.

This issue of Thunderbolts, from what I read, continued the trend and it felt like Diggle was forced to sideline any and all of the progress he had been making with the series and the new team since he took over a few short months ago. I think he did a better job with Deadpool than Way did in the first part of the story, but that's not saying much either.

Finally, the switch in artists, going from a gritty, pseudo-realism style to something more in line with what Deadpool's had works from a consistency standpoint, but only serves to undermine everything the Thunderbolts were about and accentuates the absurdity of this crossover, further undermining everything Diggle had been building.

Verdict - Dropped. Not sure what Marvel was trying to accomplish by forcing this crossover between the two titles. If it was to get people to pick up both titles or increase sales in general, they've failed miserably and only managed to lose a customer on one of the titles. Not even sure if I'll bother coming back in two or three months time when this is all over and done with.
