This book continues to be a lot of fun, I’m really enjoying how well Parker is balancing two separate storylines, each with very large casts, he’s juggling a lot here and he’s pulling it off. This issue probably featured a bit more of the Dark Avengers than the Thunderbolts, so let’s start with them. The team faces off against a bunch of Dagan Shah’s monsters in a very entertaining fight scene which demonstrated just how great an artist Declan Shalvey has become. I particularly like the way he draws Dark Spider-Man, he’s very, well, spider-like. I’d like to see Shalvey draw an arc of Spidey, which would be excellent. I also like how Parker is developing the rest of the team, especially Toxic Doxie. I was wary of these characters joining the book at first, but I’m liking it now. Back to the future (heh) as the Thunderbolts face a Judge Dredd kind of character that seems to be a pensioner Luke Cage in Iron Man armour. Being British I am of course a big fan of Judge Dredd, so it was a lot of fun to see an analogue kick some wimpy US superhero butt. I’m not immediately gripped by this alternate future yet, but I’m sure Parker will do a good job with it next issue. Kev Walker did his usual excellent job on these sequences too, I think that’s probably part of why the two storylines are working, each has a distinct artist.

I have to admit that I'm loving this book. If I had to Internet bitch about anything, it's that I hate Dredd analogues and that whoever coined the name "Toxic Doxie" should be put in a corner for about 20 years.
