    One thought on “Thunderbolts, Volume 1: No Quarter”

    1. Eh. Kinda ok?General Ross (aka Red Hulk) puts together a team of anti-heroes toyou know, do anti-hero stuff.Who's on the roster?Well, Ross, Elektra, Punisher, Deadpool, and Venom make up the main group, but there's still a few more spoilery characters hanging around in the background. Still, the core group makes a pretty decent line-up if you think about it. Um, I'm not sure what to say about No Quarter. It really wasn't bad, but I wasn't all that WOWed, either. It was a pretty standard bad-bu [...]

    2. Who writes Deadpool a speech that goes on for panels and not only makes no sense, but is unfunny to boot? Who writes a scene where Deadpool is battling a gang of French mimes and doesn’t include a bunch of good quips in a sequence that’s just begging for it? Answer to both: Daniel Way.This volume is somewhat better than volume two (two stars from me), but that’s like saying regular Spam tastes better than turkey Spam or that Chicago XII is better than Chicago XIV. Still, the story line is [...]

    3. Retired General Thaddeus Ross has put together a team to take on missions no one else will.Ross has assembled a team of people who either like or don't mind killing with The Punisher, Elektra, Deadpool, and Agent Venom. They're kind of like an anti-hero A-Team except they aren't helping those in need except themselves and when they shoot bullets they actually hit peoplea lot of people. I have to say I'm somewhat disappointed with this volume. I expected all these anti-heroes together would be mo [...]

    4. General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross aka the Red Hulk decides to do something about the world’s dictators and forms a group designed to take them down: Venom, Deadpool, Elektra, the Punisher and himself. But as they set out on their inaugural mission to take down a military dictator in the fictional Asian island country of Kata Jaya, is there more to this scheme than simply bloody justice - and how does the Leader fit into it? Team books that are made up of people who didn’t start out tog [...]

    5. That was awful. Terrible story that has nothing interesting to say whatsoever. Deadpool is not Deadpool. Punisher is not PunisherRed Hulk. Who gives a shit about Red Hulk.The rest are just there to have some lines to say and also half the time out of character.I was so excited to start the series and volume 1 was just as boring as it could get with no reason or development whatsoever. No outcome either.I always liked Dillon's art, and I like most of the characters so that's why I'm going to cont [...]

    6. Better than I thought it would be! I was kind of wary of a team book with Deadpool. He so doesn't strike me as someone who works well with others. But as it turns out, that was kind of the point. The majority of the characters in this team aren't exactly known for teamwork.But man, I felt lost often. This is almost entirely because of my relative lack of Hulk knowledge. Sure, I sort of vaguely knew that General Ross became the Red Hulk. But I had no idea that anything had happened to the Leader, [...]

    7. Good, clean fun. Well, not so clean. Pretty dirty, really. But that's why it's fun. That being said, I was expecting. from this title.

    8. I don't know why I never made the connection that General "thunderbolt", aka the Red Hulk,should be the leader of the Thunderbolts team. How unfortunate, that this is probably the poorest version of the Thunderbolts to date.We have the initial team of Villains pretending to be heroes, led by Baron ZemoThen we have Norman Osborn's team of Villains controlled by the government, who would eventually become the Dark AvengersThen we have Luke Cage's team of Villains, which was basically Marvel's equi [...]

    9. I kinda feel like Daniel Way is under-rated. And I am a huge fan of Steve Dillon, who is particularly great a conveying expression, he is amazingly consistent in his characterizations and his illustrations have the weight of reality in them for me. If I had any criticism it would be that his action can be stiff and static at times. I feel like his art brings out Daniel Way's subtle nuances, the way he did with Ennis back when Dillon illustrated "PREACHER".So you have some awesome characters here [...]

    10. 2.5/5This is the first truly lackluster comic I've read this year.The chemistry didn't work between the bad guys as a new crew of vigilantes in a foreign country. I felt like I was watching jarring scenes of characters who happened to be in the same comic book together and didn't want to be. Part of that is what they were going for, maybe? No chemistry was fleshed out. I had to flip back to the previous page several times when I thought two pages were stuck together but they weren't -- the story [...]

    11. I really wanted to like this, after quite a few people told me good things about it. But it just fell very flat to me. It's always a risk putting The Punisher into the regular Marvel Universe. With a few exceptions (he works great with Daredevil, and I loved his role in Civil War), I prefer Frank Castle to be off in his own little world, independent of the rest of the Marvel books. This book is a good example why, as he just doesn't seem to fit naturally with the rest of these characters - I nev [...]

    12. Stupid, awful garbage. Daniel Way is a mediocre writer, and Steve Dillon is a mediocre artist, and together, they put out a book that's mediocre at best. The team's reasons for working together aren't particularly elaborated on. Way basically just felt like having this team doing stuff, so he threw them together, and it reads like bad fanfic, particularly with Punisher and Elektra randomly hooking up.Don't bother with any of Way's run on Thunderbolts.

    13. It was a pretty poor idea to re-imagine the Thunderbolts, even if the idea of having General 'Thunderbolt' Ross take command seems like a natural fit. This has little to nothing to do with the earlier Thunderbolts run, which was awesome, villains as heroes, and instead brings together a team of a bunch of popular characters like Deadpool, Punisher, Red Hulk, Elektra, and Venom, which is completely against the spirit of the original story. The art is mediocre, the characters all act a bit 'off' a [...]

    14. Probably the weakest of all the T-bolt series/lineups. Which is incredibly surprising considering it’s all star cast. Still, it does have plenty of cool moments that definitely make it worth the read.

    15. I think one of the most damning things that can ever be said for a comic was that the best part of it was the cover art. And that was the best part of this.I really wanted to like this and kept hoping the book would become more enjoyable as it went on but there were just too many flaws. The story flow was unsteady and weird. The characters were given little reason on panel for why they did most things, and for a new series they did a super shitty job introducing these characters to new readers. [...]

    16. A few things irked me about this book, but I ultimately enjoyed it and thought it was a lot of fun. So first the bad.1. Colors. They were bland, and there were a few continuity errors in the book due entirely to the colorist. That's a bummer.2. AR logos everywhere! This could be a neat idea, but the app doesn't work on any device I've tried it on, so instead it's just ruining good art and distracting.3. Why the hell doesn't Red Hulk have a mustache? Seriously, he would look so much better with o [...]

    17. Daniel Way - writerSteve Dillon - illustratorGeneral Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, believed to be deceased by the world at large, mysteriously resurfaces to recruit a new team of black-ops, under-the-radar, superpowered anti-heroes to clean up the messes the "official" good guys can't touchor, something like that. The only battle Ross allowed to personally effect him, his dogged pursuit and persecution of the Incredible Hulk, led to horrific personal consequences and ended with him and his daught [...]

    18. I never enjoy writing a negative review, but I have to say this is one of the least impressive comics I've read from Marvel. The issue is that it feels so uninspired and the characters have no personality or depth. I know most of these characters whether it be the Punisher, Agent Venom, or Elektra from other series and I was shocked how stiff and robotic their personalities were. In fact, it was hard for me to differentiate anyone's personality from each other. When you add to that a very thin m [...]

    19. GREAT CONCEPTPOOR EXECUTIONTHOUGHTS: This book had so much potential when I saw it on the shelf. Red Hulk, Electra, Deadpoolme Spider-Guy? AND PUNISHER!I'm betting it's not an easy sell to take two of Marvel's biggest characters (Deadpool/Punisher) and put them in a book together on a team. These two characters really don't have the team-up record of characters such as Spider-Man, Wolverinehell, even Beast. So you'd think the book where these two would team-up on a somewhat long-term basis would [...]

    20. Cet album reprend les numéros 1 à 6 de la nouvelle série Thunderbolts par Daniel Way. En gros, Deadpool, Elektra, Rulk, Punisher et Venom sont une sorte d'équipe de mercenaires qui doivent, ici, libérer le pays fictif de Kata Jaya de son dictateur. Ajoutez une intrigue touchant un peu à la politique internationale et voilà Thunderbolts !Alors 1. c'est pas intéressant, 2. les héros sont vraiment ennuyeux (alors que je suis une grande fan de Deadpool et que tout le monde sait que Venom et [...]

    21. So, the first couple of issues were a little bit confusing - lots of time jumping back and forth, and very rapid introductions to all of the characters as the team was gathered together by Red Hulk. Once it settled down, though, I loved this collection: there's loads of actions, but the interactions between the characters - particularly between The Punisher and Deadpool, and Deadpool and Venom - really elevate it to brilliance.I'd been thinking about reading Thunderbolts for a while, but I wasn' [...]

    22. You know that saying about something not being equal to the sum of its parts?Here's what you've got:Punisher: the guy who shoots everyone in the faceDeadpool: the guy who also shoots everyone in the face and oftentimes gets shot in his own faceVenom: Flash Thompson is now wearing the Venom symbiote, which makes sense as his legs don't work the rest of the timeElektra: Okay, I was never all that hot on Elektra, but that's mostly because she used sais all the time. You know, those weird fork thing [...]

    23. I quite liked the old Thunderbolts team, and this is apparently unrelated in any way but the name. That made it something of a hard sell for me, particularly since I only really cared about Deadpool and Venom out of the characters presented here (also including Elektra, the Punisher, and the Red Hulk, primarily). That said, this worked pretty well. It's a collection of killers and mercenaries military types, in general, and since the Red Hulk is none other than General "Thunderbolt" Ross, the na [...]

    24. I was really excited when I saw this. With Deadpool, venom, red hulk and punisher I thought that Daniel Way would have done an amazing job. maybe I set my standards to high because after reading two of the five collected issues I find myself bored. The story takes to long. and more importantly they characters don't have their traits then make them who they are. Deadpool doesn't have any witty jokes that made the reader laugh. Venom will he might as well just be a black dull military Spider-Man. [...]

    25. It feels like the authors are withholding the real story. Like this is all one big prelude. I can't tell you why.So Thunderbolt Ross as an Evil Hulk and Flash Thompson as a Venom (an Evil Spider-Man) form a super team. All that's missing is Lucy as a giant evil Charlie Brown. cf. whatisdeepfried/2013/0.Also, these two are characters with a lot of complex, futzy rules. I mean how can Flash Thompson run around with the symbiote on for days at a time with the military not noticing? Why is Red Hulk [...]

    26. Wow. When I first heard that Punisher, Red Hulk, Deadpool, Venom & Elektra were going to be on a team called the Thunderbolts, I was thoroughly excited. Had I actually been reading the books when they came out, I would have dropped this after the first arc. Felt like the story was a bit boring even though there was a fight scene here and there with some nice gore.Since I have already kept Thunderbolts on my pull-list, I will drop this after the Infinity main event. I suggest you stay away fr [...]
