The T-Bolts take on Jack The Ripper, and whilst it’s obviously not on the same level of sophistication as the medium’s most famous take on Saucy Jack, From Hell, this arc looks like being a lot of fun. Jeff Parker is obviously pretty knowledgeable about The Ripper and manages to stop the story becoming too ridiculous. The revelation that the Ripper in the Marvel Universe is actually Mister Hyde was a clever one, and I really never expected to see Moonstone in a team-up with Inspector Abberline. This is the kind of crazy stuff only comics can do, and I love that Parker is embracing getting to do a time-travel story and taking us to all sorts of interesting places. Declan Shalvey’s art was very strong, I particularly liked the page where Moonstone’s cape split into panels, very cool. Frank Martin’s colours were also awesome, he got across the murk of Victorian London perfectly.

I really didn't enjoy the Invaders arc and this one holds even less interest as does this team. Hopefully they'll be returned to their own time by the end of this arc and we can get to some proper Thunderbolts action.

I do admit to liking Troll though.

Troll is a great character. :)

I loved in the Invaders issues how Moonstone called her the Borneo Wild Girl. :lol:

This story was fun along those lines, but I don't think it reveals that Hyde is the Ripper of the MU. As far as I know about how Marvel time travel works it isn't direct travel to the past, but diagonal. As such wouldn't this be the past of an alternate timeline?

I have loved this book since Parker took over. These time-travelling stories are lots of fun.
