This issue of Thunderbolts puts the focus squarely on Red Leader and gives the reader an insight into the twisted genius of Samuel Sterns. This issue single handedly takes Red Leader from push over to plotting sociopath who doubts himself just enough to not act on his schemes. The "reveal" near the end of the book is a good twist that I honestly didn't see coming due to the sharp writing of Charles Soule.
Being a story told from the Red Leader's perspective means none of the other characters develop during the course of the book, but this is a minor gripe. The art of Gabriel Hernandez Walta isn't awful, but it isn't great either. Some may disagree, but I prefer my heroes to have a larger than life quality to them and Walta's art doesn't portray this in my opinion.
Despite art that I am not a fan of, this is a solid comic that gets into the mind of Samuel Sterns and answers a question, why doesn't Red Leader try to escape, that many may have wondered about the often bullied Red Leader.
