    Comics Bulletin - Michael Colbert Jun 10, 2008

    Jefte Palo & Lee Loughridge's art is amazing, and even if it wasn't paired with a cool as hell story, it would make the comic worth buying. Their brutal pop art might get exhausting over an extended period, but they've doled out the perfect amount this time. I'd love to read more from Charlie Houston, especially handling Wolverine. He has some really cool moments here. "Hunters and Killers" is a nice contrast in mood and tone but still delivers a satisfying "X-Force" experience. Assuming you can handle the level of violence (and if you are an X-Force fan, I'm pretty sure you can), these two stories are worth the effort and money. It's cool to experience X-Force in other hands; as much as I liked "Enemy of the State," "Children of Men" was a much more rewarding experience. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Jun 11, 2008

    Your enjoyment of Ain't No Dog will depend largely on your degree of appreciation for the artistic aspect of comic book reading. If you dig some great, moody, gritty art that tells a competent story on its own, the "Ain't No Dog" portion of the issue is right up your alley. But if you'll feel ripped off for only being able to truly enjoy one aspect of the overall package, or you just can't bring yourself to ignore laughably bad scripting, you might want to steer clear.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Jun 11, 2008

    Overall, I cant help but feel that this X-Force special will only satisfy certain types of people. Wolverine and Warpath fans will get a decent enough fix and those looking for some comic book carnage will find themselves satisfied with the mass bloodletting in the Wolverine story, but all the rest can easily skip this book. There is nothing in this book that adds to the current X-Force storyline, the art isnt strong enough to elevate the basic tales, and there is no X-23. If you havent noticed, I was looking for a lot more than I got. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 12, 2008

    I enjoyed this for what it was, but, if I had it over again, I'd probably just avoid this altogether. Aaron's backup story was way too short to get anything done and I was hoping for more from it, too. Great art and some nice fight scenes in Wolverine's half to help distract from the lack of story, though. Read Full Review
