• Journey back to the heady days of the 1990s, when two characters debuted who would change the face of comics...Cable & Deadpool!
•  In this all-new tale, we learn of the pair's first meeting, well before New Mutants #98, as Cable and his soon-to-be X-Force race through the timestream to stop the reckless mercenary Deadpool before he destroys American history for good!

    DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE #1 is a great serving of escapism. Sometimes you just want to immerse yourself in something lighthearted and fun, and, if you're a fan of these characters, this will definitely be a good time. Swierczynski has a good handle on Wade Wilson, making the character amusing but also never letting us forget he's a dangerous and not-so-kind person. The members of X-Force feel like they're getting a little downplayed right now, but something tells me that'll quickly change as the story moves forward. Throw in some consistently pleasing visuals and the end result is a thoroughly enjoyable comic. My fellow Deadpool fans, you'll definitely want to give this one a shot. Read Full Review

    Bottom line the comic is a fun read, though if you aren't fans of the characters or era it's set in, you'll probably want to pass on it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 2, 2014

    Art wise, artist Pepe Larraz and colorist Nolan Woodward prove a solid team, combining for some excellent action sequences and humorous character beats. Wade's assault of the British army is a definite highlight, the character as cool as he is ridiculous -- his gun is even named Kingslayer! Deadpool vs. X-Force #1 is pretty much what you'd expect for a book featuring a time traveling 'Pool, and that's not a bad thing. Swierczynski and Co. have a fine handle on the character, making his continued historical misadventures something worth reading. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Lance Paul Jul 8, 2014

    This loyal Marvel Apostle enjoyed the read for its simplistic approach and Larraz' fun sketches and Nolan (Planet of the Apes) Woodard's vibrant colors that can't help but scream right off the page. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jul 4, 2014

    "Deadpool Vs. X-Force" #1 feels like the beginning of a forgettable miniseries that will add nothing to the characterization or history of X-Force or Deadpool. Fans of late "New Mutants" and '90s-era "X-force" fans can and probably should skip this tangential filler, and that's a problem, because this miniseries is banking on precisely those fans and that nostalgia. Deadpool fans and new readers should graze elsewhere as well. Read Full Review
