    Uncanny X-Force #12Posted: Friday, July 29, 2011By: Robert Tacopina Rick RemenderMark Brooks, Andrew Currie (i), Mark Brooks (i), Dean White (c), Richard Isanove (c), Cory Petit (l)Marvel Does Rick Remender kick copious amounts of ass or what? In his first year on Uncanny X-Force Remender has proven without a doubt to be a phenomenally gifted writer with the ability to get into the heads of his subjects and make them accessible to the reader. In this latest arc, "The Dark Angel Saga," we see our surreptitious squad of X-Men traveling to the Age of Apocalypse in order to save Warren Worthington (Angel/Archangel) who is succumbing to his inner demons which were conveniently placed within him by Apocalypse way back in the first volume of X-Factor.

    Two months of waiting and it was worth every second. This title is still the best mutant title on the stands today. What an amazing story. Read Full Review

    Rick Remender has three ongoing stories running simultaneously in this issue, and each one of them is fantastic. Everything from the execution of the art to the pacing of this issue is just perfect. The chemistry and sparks between these characters will leave the reader at the edge of their seat and wanting more. I highly recommend this series, as Remender has consistently delivered a stellar book. Read Full Review

    And as mentioned, Remender includes a healthy bit of action as the X-Men deal with everything from Samurai Sentinels to the most bizarre set of villains yet seen in the series. Remender may be taking a very character-centric approach to this arc, but that doesn't mean he's afraid to throw in some of the sillier elements his writing is known for. Combine all of this with some excellent visuals by Mark Brooks, and you have the makings for an arc that is already rivaling "The Apocalypse Solution" in quality. X-books don't get better than this.

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Jul 29, 2011

    "Uncanny X-Force" is currently a book that feels like it's servicing a fanboy audience, but is actually more open than you think. It's like Remender is the kid who can take any toys in your wardrobe and craft a stellar afternoon of tales out of them. He's mashing things up and the result is fun mixed with character and more fun. If the opening arc was a Marvel book done as a gritty violent romp, then this arc is shaping up to be a gritty violent romp done as a glorious Marvel book. Read Full Review

    Brooks, Currie, and White are a powerhouse artistic team. As much as I miss Ribic and Opena's work from early in the series, Brooks and Currie's ultra-detailed panels are fantastic, if not a bit more mainstream. As long as Dean White is on colors, I think I'm happy with any artist on this book, really. Read Full Review
