THUNDERBOLTS Are Go!


My first issue of THUNDERBOLTS hits stores in the U.S. tomorrow, and there are already a couple of positive advance reviews up on Newsarama and Comic Book Resources.

It's actually kind of a weird way to start my first ever ongoing Marvel series. While it's set after the events of SECRET INVASION # 8, it goes on sale beforehand; so I've had to deal with the ramifications of SI's twist ending without actually spoiling it.

The ending of SECRET INVASION will have massive repercussions for the Marvel Universe in general and THUNDERBOLTS in particular, and you'll see those changes played out in my third issue (on sale in January).

So THUNDERBOLTS # 126 moves all the pieces into position, 127 checkmates them, and 128 throws the chess board out of the window and sets fire to the building.

It's going to be a fun ride.
