Weird Science Marvel ComicsThunderbolts #4 finally gets around to introducing a threat that puts the whole team out of commission at the end of the penultimate issue. Hawkeye's dream world is everything he could hope for and more, but the nature, origin, and motivation behind the attack are completely unknown, which is a rough place to start going into a finale.
ComicBook.comThe latest issue of Thunderbolts doubles down hard on Hawkeye's place as the leader and how he sees himself in the larger Marvel universe. Writer Jim Zub juggles his responsibilities and worries with a unique structure that will have fans wondering what's real and what isn't, making this a weird read. Sean Izaakse and Netho Diaz are credited as pencilers on the issue, blending their work together seamlessly enough for it all to appear consistent. The real tragedy is that this Thunderbolts title isn't still sparking the level of interest it gave off with its first issue, it's fine, but could be so much more.
