Marvel‘s all-new Thunderbolts are assembling in the wake of the events of Devil’s Reign.

The five-issue limited series will be written by Jim Zub with art by Sean Izaakse.

The premiere issue will come packed with covers by some of the biggest artists including Izaakse, Chris O’Halloran, David Nakayama, Paulo Siqueira/Rachelle Rosenberg, Stefano Caselli/Federico Blee, and Todd Nauck.
Check out the covers below:
The full lineup includes Spectrum, America Chavez, Power Man, and Kara Killgrave. They will be led by Hawkeye as the team selected by Mayor Luke Cage to operate in New York City. Also joining the new Thunderbolts team will be two new recruits that includes Mystery Man and Gutsen Glory. They will be tasked with taking down Kingpins slate of Thunderbolts members who caused mayhem during the events of Devil’s Reign.
Zub talks about the new roster, saying:
“A lot of times people will look at a cast of characters and say, ‘This team lineup is different so this isn’t the team I want,’ but, it’s like you said, the Thunderbolts have gone through so many iterations. There have been incarnations where they’re purely criminal, others where they’re criminals trying to be heroes, and everything in between, but I’ve always felt like, at their heart, the Thunderbolts are a team struggling for redemption.
Individual members and the team as a whole struggled to dig themselves out of their worst selves or resist the natural pull of who they’ve been in the past. So, for me, redemption is the heart of the Thunderbolts concept.”
Thunderbolts #1 will be available at your local comic book shop and digitally on August 31st, 2022. Check out the preview below:
