    But Why Tho?

    Thunderbolts #2 is a delight. The funniest parts of the first issue, from Hawkeyes ineptitude to the rules and regulations chats around superheroes are even funnier when seen in practice. Zub is an excellent storyteller and controlling many story threads at the same time takes immense talent, especially one where the pace can be so intense.

    The Story: Fun, funny and filled with great action. Zub does a great job of blending politics, humor and heart in the story and utilizes the characters brilliantly. Clint definitely stands out and I love seeing him struggle with being a leader. I really enjoy the tone of this series so far and how it doesn’t take itself too seriously while also teasing at personal drama for each of the characters.

    The Art: Izaakse delivers light, detailed and visually engaging art that perfectly matches the tone of the story.

    Thunderbolts #2 adds a new teammate, more mystery, and oodles of potential for a superhero book tinged with solid humor and hard-hitting action (literally). Zub’s pacing and dialog are excellent, and the art is great. Barring Hawkeye’s depiction as an insecure buffoon, this title continues to show great potential.

    Very solid, enjoyable second issue keeps the strong character character work going for an overall entertaining superhero team comic.

    Sadly a lot of what made the first issue’s take on the Thunderbolts interesting, it’s lampooning of entertainment conglomerates and techno-babble nonsense, is absent from Thunderbolts #2. Writer Jim Zub seems more interested in exploring Hawkeye as the team’s leader than really digging into the meat of the team dynamic, but we get some of that. Artist Sean Izaakse gets the chance to draw fun action beats with a unique antagonist, but that he’s able to make the mundane conversations just as visually engaging makes this a worthy read. Like the first issue though it ends in such a unique way that you can’t help but wonder what’s going to happen next.
