    Thunderbolts #2 Review

    ***SPOILER FREE REVIEW***

    I really want to like this series, honestly. The idea behind this series is awesome, and there should be compelling drama seeing these characters try to work together. Instead, we get a bland, generic comic that achieved absolutely nothing.

    Normally, I go into great detail about the writing and the art of a particular issue I review. However, with this issue, I won't, because both the art and the writing are bad. Really bad. As in, why didn't how bad Issue #1 was teach me not to buy this comic.

Apparently Steve Dillon rose to prominence with Preacher, but what he's delivering here so far is mediocre at...
