About the Author
As the proprietor of the legendary Sea Tramp Tattoo Company, Jeff Johnson has inked gangbangers, age-defying moms, and sociopaths; he s defused brawls and tended delicate egos. Ruggedly individualistic artists are part of the show, as is Johnson himself. As a veteran tattoo artist of over twenty years, he has a million tales of the tattoo demimonde. Johnson is a sharp-eyed master tattoo artist, and an extraordinary writer. He is the author of the memoir, "Tattoo Machine: Tall Tales, True Stories, and My Life in Ink", a modern twist on a werewolf tale "Everything Under the Moon" (Soft Skull Press, September 2016), and the forthcoming crime novel "Lucky Supreme". --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

We start with a three-parter of the T-Bolts taking on the Elements of Doom with new member Jolt (unaware of her team's true secret) helping and then teaming with the Heroes for Hire. Another issue has Black Widow sharing a tale of the Avengers with MACH-1 and Songbird as they begin to doubt in their criminal ways. Again, we get the great dynamic, that severa of the T-Bolts are finding they like being heroes more than being crooks and wonder if they can continue.
Then we come to the game-changing tenth issue as the Avengers and FF return and the T-Bolts are exposed. It turns out to all be part of Zemo's master plan as he begins a scheme that soon has over half the world in his grasp. The Thunderbolts must choose against Zemo (with help from Iron Man) in the 12th issue blow-out. Then, we have the two issues of fall-out with the team transported to another dimension.
Busiek proves himself a master of Marvel history, using the past in amazing ways. He captures each character perfectly from scheming Moonstone to arrogant Techno and Zemo paying off his ultimate plan with glee. The issue of the public reacting to how they've been fooled is amazing work with Jolt jarred to discover the truth of her "friends." And Busiek fits in his favorite Avenger, Iron Man, in a way that makes perfect sense and leads to a great battle with stuff like Moonstone ranting on the faults of Zemo's plan and more. It's all mixed in one great package, giving you one of the high points of late-'90's Marvel and deserves a place with any comic fan who wants to see a wonderfully original idea come to frution.
