    Jerome Opena continues to draw the heck out of this book. Esad Ribic's work was always top-notch, but his absence could not have been filled by better hands. Opena gets gross in this issue with the Blob fight, and switches gears to show tremendous scale during the Iceman scenes. His sense of action feels like watching a Bourne movie: quick, authentic, and brutal. Archangel has always had one of the more badass looks among the mutants, so it is to Opena's credit that he has transcended his look to one of regal eminence and pure evil. Here's to this creative team for turning a fan favorite hero into an unbelievably awesome villain. Read Full Review

    "The Dark Angel Saga" is going to make one hell of a collection. Remender has not used the term "saga" lightly, and has gone for broke in terms of scope and innovation. Each month, this storyline has delivered. It will go down as a modern classic in the superhero genre. Remender plays with continuity to build something that seemingly stands above it all to succeed and delight. This is the sort of comic monthly fans are rewarded with because you are constantly left loving it and waiting for more. Read Full Review

    Fantomex's subconscious is telling him to flee because that's what he's used to doing, but something tells me that he'll go back because it's the right thing to do. The fact that he acknowledges that his love for Psylocke is "unrequited" is funny too. As sad as it is, it's nice to finally see him admit it to himself out loud. I think Fantomex 16 issues ago would have left and never hesitated; but his character (since Remender has had his way with him) has evolved so much, and it's fantastic to see the evolution of his character play out in the story. The story is definitely not new reader friendly, and I recommend picking up the previous 15 issues or at least start at issue #11 where the arc began to fully understand. We are at the height of X-Force's excitement, and it still feels like things are just heating up and we are nowhere near the end. Personally, I can't wait for the next issue! Read Full Review
