    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Dec 14, 2011

    Best of all, though, as good as this story was, it didn't need a crossover, or tie-ins. It didn't even need Wolverine to be conscious. No gimmicks, no pandering, no advance spoilers. No better way to have told this story. If the creators involved never picked up their tools again, they could rest easy knowing that just once, they did everything right. But with this much passion and ability on display, something tells me an early retirement is the last thing on anyone's minds. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Dec 14, 2011

    The high drama of the final showdown between X-Force and Dark Angel is every bit as majestic and affecting as this story deserves. After reading the book once, I read it straight through again. I assure you, my life is no less busy than any of yours, but I simply could not stand up until I had experienced this book one more time. As far as I'm concerned, that's the definition of an instant classic. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Dec 14, 2011

    As a fan of this series and of Remender's writing, I personally could not have asked for a better end to a brilliant story arc. The fluidity, pacing and character development are nothing less than brilliant. The book is beautifully illustrated and the story will leave you wanting more. I don't know how Remender will outdo himself. Definitely not a place you want to start. I highly recommend purchasing all of the "Dark Angel Saga" issues -- you will not be disappointed. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - stephengervais Dec 15, 2011

    This issue flows perfectly from the start all the way to its surprise ending. Not to ruin any surprises I wont reveal my favorite moment but I will say it involves a head stabbing. This issue along with the entire Dark Angel Saga is truly a must a read of 2011. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Dec 19, 2011

    Remender and Opena's Uncanny X-Force #18 caps off a story that's been running for a while even as it sets up so many questions and so many conflicts for the future. It's great to see that Marvel's mutants are capable of stories that can still shock the audience even as the stories break their hearts. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Dec 16, 2011

    If you don't mind the grim and gritty stories, the adventures of the X-Force are actually some of the best X-Men-based comics out there. Recommended! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Jim Middleton Dec 15, 2011

    Jumping On Point?: No. No, no, no. If you want to read this issue, save yourself the frustration and read the other seven issues first. Hell, even if you've read them already but weren't paying close attention, you might want to go back and refresh yourself. Wouldn't hurt to brush up on Age of Apocalypse either. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jamil Scalese Dec 16, 2011

    Bag or not, #18 is a great issue with a wonderful balance of reveals, shockers and nods to the future. The hype is legit -- Uncanny X-Force is the X-Men comic childhood-nostalgic adults have always hoped for. Sex, murder, betrayal and a giant minotaur all in one convenient package. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Victor Kutsenok Dec 16, 2011

    Nooooooo!! WTF? After so many issues of explosive action and awesome battles, why did this issue have to be such a let down? What the hell? We were riding the roller coaster all the way to the top, just waiting for that rush of going down. Instead, we get nothing but the end of the ride. No action. No excitement. Nothing really cool, like in the last 5 books. Read Full Review
