    The story is shaping up to be extremely exciting, and I absolutely cannot wait to find out what has happened to Archangel since X-Force made the treacherous journey into AoA. Like I said previously, the book is very interesting and beautifully executed. It is, however, sad to see Wolverine catch a glimpse at what he could have had, only to lose everything again. Very sad.

    A really good book with plenty of memorable stuff and all of it was drawn incredibly. Really clean, nice images. Very detailed backgrounds and a great rendition of everyone's powers. Read Full Review

    Not that he needs to - Uncanny X-Force should sell itself by now, regardless of spoilage - and nobody's going to complain about AoA Nightcrawler being around. He was one of the cooler parts of the original crossover anyway. Yeah, it might be lame to trade the pious Kurt Wagner for the dickish Kurt Darkholme, but he'll need to be dickish to stick around with this team of cool jerks. Read Full Review

    Brooks' art has grown more confident as the arc has gone on, particularly here in #13 where he gets to really flex his creative muscles with a battle against Celestial drones set in the belly of a Celestial Gardener. Brooks' fight choreography here is excellent, dynamic but clear and concise, his depiction of the Celestial drones true to tradition but also entirely menacing. Dean White gets a chance to expand his color palette as well, some much needed boldness injected into the otherwise grey and rust tone heavy world, with Andrew Currie's inks helping give the battle anotherworldly shimmer. Of course, one contender for the best moment in the entire book happens here and it relies less on the incredible art, instead showing off Remender's irreverence as Fantomex decides to take Gambit down a notch: Read Full Review

    With the conclusion of "The Dark Angel Saga" barreling down on the reader, Remender, Brooks, and Eaton are making sure that this isn't a forgettable middle chapter. It's a strong reminder that a good creative team can make every issue in a storyline fun, and it's what makes "Uncanny X-Force" a must-read every month. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 24, 2011

    Despite the haphazard visuals and the uneven focus of the script, issue #13 is strongest where the series has always been - exploring character relationships and building an engaging, ongoing narrative. Plenty of questions are answered this month, while more are posed. Despite the mistakes of this issue, all signs point towards the next batch of issues offering a worthy cap to the first year of Uncanny X-Force. Read Full Review

    If you've been enjoying this title in general, and the beginnings of the Dark Angel Saga, it's certainly worth continuing. If you've not been following the title, this is the middle/late piece of an arc so unless you're also picking up the last couple issues, there's not much in this issue to qualify it as a particularly good jumping-on point despite the "previously page."
