Thunderbolts #170 (Put some clothes on Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Feb 17, 2012 1:07 pm

The Tbolts trip to Camelot ends in a satisfying way and the ending of this issue… wow, I knew from the covers that the current team would be coming face to face with the original team, but still, that was a great moment, and Citizen V really is one of the coolest looking superheroes of all time for me. I thought the twist that Boomerang was to blame for the Fall Of Camelot was a clever one, and the way that Parker wrote Merlin here was far more nuanced than it had appeared in the last issue. Kev Walker’s artwork was brilliant as usual, he really drew the hell out of that dragon, it looked awesome. I think this 2-parter has been my favourite of the time periods the Thunderbolts have visited, mainly because of how much stuff from the actual Arthurian legends Parker has used and referenced, stuff like Lancelot and Guinevere in this issue for example.

I agree both about this two parter being the best story of the time travel arc and about the dragon. For me Troll, and in particular the things she was up to with the dragon, once again stole this issue - "Troll have dragon!"

This book has been an absolute joy since Parker took over after whatever event that was.

Walker's art has never looked better. I loved all the costumes through this time jumping adventure, but the Arthurian aged costumes were the best. I would like to see more fantasy work from him.

They've traveled in time to the point where the T-Bolts were still in the middle of Zemo's original plot involving the team.

Great run, great arc (although I think I still liked the Invaders arc just a bit better), really looking forward to T'bolts vs. T'bolts.

Last time I checked T-Bolts the team were Cage,Songbird,Moonstone,Crossbone,The Ghost(or whatever his name was)Man-Thing and I think Match(whatever number he is now) and Fixer.Who are in the team now?
Also I miss the original team,and yes Punchy,Citizen V had one of the best superhero costumes.Simple yet awesome.
Speaking of which,wonder what happened to Citizen V(Watkins III). Hadn't seen him since T-bolts vol.1.

This book has really come into its own since Fear Itself, not saying it was bad before that
Troll is awesome and so is this storyline - totally stoked for next issue

face to face with the original team, but still, that was a great moment, and Citizen V

context clues would indicate the V from the original team, meaning Zemo

Home Team: Mach XVIIQ, Songbird, Cage

Away Team: Satana, Moonstone, Fixer, Boomerang, Mr. Hyde, Troll, Centurius

and Ghost floats between them.

I love this comic though I'm not completely sold on Walker's art. I wish someone like DeVito or Pelletier were pencilling this.
