Thunderbolts Go Online
By Brian Jacks


Marvel Press Release:

Comics readers have been buzzing since the radical new "Fight Club"-style direction of the Thunderbolts was revealed. And now after the interviews with the new creative team, the preview images, and the message board debates, it's finally time for fans to read for themselves what the hoopla is all about.

A special DOTCOMIC 12-page preview of February's THUNDERBOLTS #76, the debut of the new direction and the new creative team of writer John Arcudi and artist Francisco Ruiz Velasco, is available right now at Marvel.com.

"This is a bad-ass comic that looks and feels like Hoboken and smells like desperation," explains editor Andrew Lis of the brand-new THUNBERBOLTS. "When a guy gets punched, we didn't do our job if you don't imagine your head snapping back in the same situation.

"We tell a story about that desperate reach for validation and redemption, and explore how desperation inevitably leads to worse choices."

Readers can check out the following three preview pages and them head over to the dotComic to read the rest at

This voyeuristic series focuses on super-powered thugs who faced with a hopeless, bleak future, take to a world of sadistic, bloody brawls in abandoned warehouses. THUNDERBOLTS asks if you're trying to do the right thing, do you stick with a go-nowhere day job, or do you make one last grab for fame and easy money by busting heads?

"And we go along for every miserable second, begging them to just stop and think it through," continues Lis. "But that's not the way life works. Life doesn't allow do-overs, and you have to live with your own consequences and stand up and be a man ... as long as you're not knocked so goofy that you're lying on your back."

Retailers are reminded THUNDERBOLTS #76 goes on sale 2/19 and its Initial Order Cut-off Date is 1/3.
