    As you can tell from this review, after two issues I am fully on board with this series as long as it continues to do what it is doing. I love the whole feel of it, and I really cant wait to see what happens in the next issue after the cliffhanger this one signed off on. If you want to see some characters that usually take a back seat come to the forefront in a well written series, then try these first two issues. You may not agree with me, but I think this title deserves a lot more credit than it is currently getting. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 27, 2013

    Sam Humphries and Ron Garney continue to pour the mutant action in our faces. We get some great scenes with Psylocke fighting a horde of possessed individuals and you can't help but enjoy seeing Storm and Puck face Spiral. Garney's action scenes are enhanced by a variety of color that adds a different flavor to each environment in the story. There are still questions and we're getting more before seeing some concrete answers but there is a definite hook keeping your interest attached. We may not know why these characters will operate as an incarnation of X-Force but the chance to see them in a separate corner of the X-Universe definitely is appealing. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 2, 2013

    The writing and art are both solid. The story is straight forward and mildly entertaining. And the characters are generally fun. But there is nothing that really stands out about this series. There's no hook, no gimmick, no theme or motivation that distinguishes it from every other X-comic on the stands. Unless, of course, you really like Psylocke. This is Psylocke's comic, but perhaps Marvel didn't want to just call it ‘Psylocke' for sales reasons. Obviously the comic ‘Uncanny X-Force' is going to sell much better than just ‘Psylocke'. So honestly, I'm thinking of dropping the title. I think I gave Cable and X-Force three issues, and that comic was outright bad. This one is just bland. I like Puck as much as the next comic book geek, but Puck alone is not reason enough to keep buying this standard, well-built X-Men comic. Read Full Review

    It didn't hurt that the pages were beautifully illustrated and each character was rendered perfectly onto the page. I'm looking forward to some quality fight scenes in this one and hope the trend keeps up because visually this has had some great action so far and looks as if it will continue in that direction.

    Comics Bulletin - Danny Djeljosevic Mar 6, 2013

    I don't know if this comic even makes sense to people who don't know their X-Men, but I imagine if you don't it's just kinda weird. Don't worry, it is for us too and that's why I like it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Feb 27, 2013

    The actual plot barely inches forward, but in lieu of progress we get lots of interesting character tidbits. Don't worry that Psylocke's motivations aren't clear right now, Sam Humphries is doing a good job of teasing it out. The last thing we need is another team book where everyone blathers on about their reason for joining one after another. Humphries and Garney do a fine job on this new rendition of X-Force that -- while certainly less visceral and serious than what came before -- has thus far proven to be a decent replacement.

    Read Comic Books - Tommy Lutz Feb 27, 2013

    Uncanny X-Force #2 definitely intends to wow with its action packed battle plot and insane twists but still falls into the filler issue category. The best part about this issue is the art work, almost perfectly executed by a great and diverse team of artists. Hopefully the hype isn't too much for this team to handle and they can turn the story around for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Mar 1, 2013

    On the whole, "Uncanny X-Force" has proved a surprising entry into the NOW! Line. Its predecessor was of course extremely beloved and so it has some big shoes to fill, but I'm happy to see it going its own way and doing it full out, rather than trying to do a pale imitation of what had come before. Here's to the next issue, I'm in. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Mar 27, 2013

    Like I said with #1 the standout factor has to be the colour work by Marte Gracia, Israel Gonzalez and Wil Quintana. Whether its the use of purple involving Psylocke or orange during the explosions everything works to their best. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Marcell Feb 28, 2013

    While not a bad book, Uncanny X-Force finds itself caught under the weight of Remender's run on the book (which in my opinion was one of the best X-Men books in years), things are starting to fall together (albeit rather clumsily) and we will see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Christopher Romero Feb 28, 2013

    So Uncanny X-Force isn't off to a hot start, but this title does have a ton of potential. Humphries reintroduces a time-traveling X-Men character who evidently woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Let's not also forget that Storm and Psylocke are proven leaders who don't run away from a fight. Humphries and his team have all the necessary tools to make Uncanny X-Force one of the better Marvel titles, so I wouldn't recommend bailing on it just yet. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - TylerM Mar 1, 2013

    This book is worth reading, but you might have a better experience to wait for the trade on this one. That way you don't have to wait a month to see another piece of the machine. Read Full Review
