^ The concept of the book was pretty interesting and I was digging the line up...just not a big fan of Daniel Way, and yeah as much as I thought the Dillon art was okay, Noto was better.
I agree with a lot of what you said. I liked the lineup of the new Thunderbolts but was turned off by the art. I picked up the last two issues once I saw that Noto was the artist. The story needs some work-though I'm not sure if part of that was my jumping into the middle of it, but there were some good character moments and a little humor. I loved the coup against Ross and how that turned out.
Looking over some of the news, it sucks that Captain Marvel might be staving off cancellation. It was a book that intrigued me but I haven't been into the stories. I liked the one with Monica Rambeau but I had already quit buying the book by then. And the current artwork for Captain Marvel is atrocious. Hopefully they can get a new artist soon and work on developing Carol's rogues' gallery.
