Warren Ellis continues to show the thunderbolts for what they are.....disfunctional nutcases! The thunderbolts are torn apart from the inside and used against one another in a cunning plot which seeks to destroy each and every one of them. Ellis captures the complete insanity of Osbourne perfectly whilst highlighting just how dangerous and unstable the team are as a whole. I'm not a particular fan of Deodato's work but in this volume he really has pushed the boat out. Fans of the previous volume won't feel let down by this. I just wish it was longer and that Ellis was writing more of the thunderbolts but what the hell. As Marvel comics go, this is quite a dark and nasty corner of their universe.

This volume collects Thunderbolts issues #116-121. I don't know the previous history of the Thunderbolts, so I can only comment on what is in this volume and the previous one by the same creative team. The previous one - Thunderbolts By Warren Ellis Volume 1: Faith In Monsters TPB: Faith in Monsters v. 1 (Graphic Novel Pb) - had Norman Osborn training up `his' Thunderbolt team with Songbird not at all happy with what he was doing with them, especially with Bullseye's behind the scenes activities, and with Moonstone working her own agenda. In the day job, the team are taking down minor characters resisting the Superhero Registration Act, and not doing too well at it, considering their power levels compared to the individuals they are being sent against. There is superb scripting and artwork, in the previous volume as well as this one, as the characterisation effortlessly drives the story, rather than the action or plot. The story here has Doctor Samson called in to help Penance, while a number of prisoners stage a break out, having firstly staged a break-in, to try and take down the Thunderbolts from within. It all gets very messy, as Penance finds himself, Moonstone loses herself, and Norman Osborn reconnects with his inner demons and suits up to join in the fun. Fortunately, Songbird rescued the CCTV footage to use as leverage for keeping herself in play, although Bullseye has never been one to worry about consequences.

As I said above, the characterisation does seamlessly appear to drive the stories, rather than the demands of plot, despite this being a spectacular action-oriented series. The scripting and artwork are superb, and this is highly recommended, even if, like me, you know nothing of the background.

One of the best Marvel comics i've read in ages, Dark, funny and action packed. This is also part of Osbornes rise to power. I highly recommend Thunderbolts: Faith in monsters and Thunderbolts: Secret invasion.
