    The art is definitely pretty, but I struggled to understand what was happening in many of the panels in this issue. The writing, however, is fantastic as always and is a solid start to the new Uncanny X-Force story arc. While I did not that some of the events in this issue allude to the events that took place during the Dark Angel Saga, I feel strongly that this issue is very accessible to new readers.

    With the recently completed mission to the "Age of Apocalypse" Earth followed by this mission, it could be argued that X-Force has become a pseudo-"Exiles" title. There is still, obviously, a good deal of potential in that concept as X-Force appears seemingly outclassed in Otherworld. Rick Remender leaves this story on a cliffhanger that is more visually intriguing than alarming. Otherworld hooked me, but Remender's doing the work of reeling me in. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 21, 2012

    I've been hearing very good things about the recent 'Dark Archangel Saga' in this title, and found that this issue was a nice jumping-on point, not too engrossed in an arc, but obviously a story with something to say. The use of Wolverine and Deadpool here is very well-handled, and I have to say that I had forgotten how much I like see Nightcrawler in action. The use of the Captain Britain Corps ties in to the excellent stories that first gave us Psylocke, back before she was Asian or a ninja, and I'm wondering if we're going to get the full story on what happened between the end of 'Captain Britain And MI:13′ and this book. Overall, Uncanny X-Force #20 hits a lot of strong notes and impresses me across the board, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. Read Full Review

    That bit of confusion aside, Remender is really doing something special with Uncanny X-Force. He's combining really neat concepts with really neat battles. If there's ever going to be as good a place to jump in, it's with this issue, but you're really going to be missing out on a lot if you don't get the trades. Read Full Review

    Uncanny X-Force is building a second epic story and Remender is bringing a heavy story with the opening issue. This book isn't just one of the best X-Men books or super hero books, but it is also one of the best science-fiction and big idea books out there now. I definitely recommend checking this out.

    Outer Realm Comics - DeShawn Jan 20, 2012

    Although not a very accurate portrayal of the events within the issue, Leinil Yu provides an awesomely depicted confrontation between the Captain Britain Corps and X-Force while Fantomex is shown bound in chains. Fantomex's portrayal is a bit reminiscent to another certain French inspired X-Man who was incarcerated a while back. A few arms are drawn a little skinny but aside from that, the cover is very well done. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jan 18, 2012

    Uncanny X-Force marks the start of an interesting diversion for the series, but not an entirely successful one. Hopefully as the story grows the series will come closer to recapturing the glory of "The Dark Angel Saga." Read Full Review

    Jumping on point?: Yes, this is a fairly easy issue to pick up and understand right away, but unfortunately you won't be catching this book at its prime. Read Full Review

    I hope we get a more streamlined story next issue and a new artist as this opening issue was just horrible. Read Full Review
