Thunderbolts and Lightning

AICN's TBolts #2 review:

THUNDERBOLTS #2 - Those of you who like to see your heroes sit in a chair for an entire issue while the focus is on someone vomiting lines ripped straight from a Z-grade gangster flick will not like this book. This is as old school as it gets, folks. Fabian Nicieza and Kurt Busiek are writing comics the way they used to be: filled with action, characters that act according to continuity, and fun. Issue #2 pits the newly reformed Thunderbolts against another set of goofy villains who don�t even get to shout out their names before the T-bolts hand them their @$$es. This isn�t the strongest read on the shelves, nor is it ground-breaking material, but it is refreshing in that it isn�t grim or deconstructive, and it isn�t laughing at the genre and the fans. THUNDERBOLTS shies away from the norm and tells a straight up super hero story with pride and I�ve gotta support that.
