Wow! This issue was REALLY not good. What we get here is a bare-bones, by-the-numbers building the team issue. The idea is that General Ross is bringing this team together and he just so happens to catch them all whilst in the middle of casual, wanton mass murder. This issue made me frequently wonder how people can have a casual conversation over the sounds of gunfire and screams of agony. It made me think. If one is thinking about comic book logistics of conversation then something must not be working, and nothing about this book really works. “Thunderbolt” Ross is assembling this team of psychopath murderers, why? Just ’cause? Not even Steve Dillon seems like he’s trying here with frequently stiff characters and inconsistent, bad art. Not at all what I expect from Dillon. This book could have been, should have been good. This is an interesting team with high potential for solid team chemistry, but if the run is anything like this issue it will be an easy one to miss.

Story: 1 - Poor
Art: 2 - Average


  1. I wouldn’t say that Dillon isn’t trying, it’s just that his style doesn’t fit a ‘super-hero’ type book. I can’t look at The Punisher without thinking ‘Jesse Custer’ every time.
