"Explosive" might be something of an understatement. One look at this risqué cover to the upcoming issue of THUNDERBOLTS that is continuing this March, 2013 and you might have to call up your local shop to put it on your pull list if you haven't already. The cover features amazing work from artist Julian Totino Tedesco and is, in a word, definitely "explosive." Elektra engages the Punisher in a passionate embrace.

What do you think of the image? Are you looking forward to the continuation of Daniel Way's THUNDERBOLTS series this March?

All I know is I see Steve Dillion's name nowhere on this book which mean I'm gonna start picking up Thinderbolts. ...also I don't agree with this pairing. But that cover is The Balls.

No, new and unexpected would use characters who aren't just dangling on nostalgia.

According to Marvel's March 2013 Solicitations, Phil Noto is the artist starting in #7.

I am really looking forward to that. As far as the pairing, it's definitely unexpected and provocative!

@DarkKnightDetective: Wolverine and Storm are hooking up, as well as Superman and Wonder Woman. The trend is making the popular characters kiss face now.

I love the cover!! Very sexy. But i think the hook up is a bit random and just thrown in there for the sake of being there, not because it'll be a great story..

At least Marvel realized the art was not doing it for most people. I really like the characters and concept of the book, but I couldnt commit to it because of the art. Noto's art is usually amazing, so I'll have to check back in on this book in awhile.

Isn't Elektra a villain who remorselessly kills innocents on many occasions and Frank a vigilante whose only purpose is to kill villains who have hurt innocents?

Sounds to me like the worst pairing possible.

Same here. I'm not sure how someone whose life literally revolves around killing can feel normal emotions.

That is something that should be kept entirely between you, your internet service provider and your membership to adultfanfiction, not in Marvel canon

THunderbolts title is a joke, take it from someone who has wasted money on all the first variants excited for this title as well as the issue following.

I sold them already and made some good profit but still this title sucks...horrible art, boring story setup, and atrocious dialogue.

I'm pretty sure that cover is done by Julian Totino Tedesco who also did some of the covers for Uncanny X-Force during Phil Noto's run. Notice the double-T signature.

Thanks so much for catching that. We posted the info we got from Marvel and they didn't credit the artist. We will fix it.

It's funny because they had a kid in an alternate universe. May have inspired this story.
