Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
The recent look at Kurt Busiek’s Avengers run reminded me that we should take a look at the Thunderbolts #1 reveal by Busiek and Mark Bagley…
To recap, the issue begins with a 15-year-old girl getting kidnapped by some bad guys. We don’t see her again until the very end (setting up next issue), but I’m just mentioning it so the end of the issue makes some sense to you.
Okay, otherwise, the Thunderbolts show up as the newest superhero team to fight the good fight when the Avengers and the Fantastic Four both went missing.
In this issue, they just got done with a very public battle with the Wrecker and the Wrecking Crew.
Then this happened…
The reveal is “the” moment, naturally.
