    Once again, the pacing was very quick. I wasn't a huge fan of the flashback scenes but I understand how they are meant to tie in the entire Warren situation. The art was really well done. Read Full Review

    Its really hard not to love all of these characters. The decision to rope in the Age of Apocalypse characters was a brilliant idea, and phenomenally executed. I also thought it was great to see Psylocke fully capable of overcoming the "dark side." Sure, she loves Warren, but she was able to pull herself out of it and that was great. The story is action packed and will have you at the edge of your seat the entire time. I am definitely looking forward to the final issue, but also a little bit sad that the "Dark Angel Saga" story arc is almost at its end. Read Full Review

    It is astonishing how Remender's love for the Age of Apocalypse can be so plainly seen on the page. More often than not, crossovers with old fan-loved stories are a sleazy way for publishers to earn a quick buck, but not here. The AoA characters make a reappearance that has incredible impact on the story and, more importantly, a personal impact to the members of X-Force. Not to mention it allows for an incredible clash of Apocalypse-Archangel vs. Phoenix, the stuff of fanboy wet dreams. All the while, loyalties are tested, hearts are wrenched, and the plot escalates to insane levels. Remender and the art team are in top form and are on track to complete an epic tale that earns its namesake. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Dan Horn Nov 10, 2011

    UXF is definitely not without its faults, however minuscule, but it's also so deep and character-driven that those faults only seem to further reflect those of its intricately developed players. This really is a remarkable era for this super-team, and anything that comes after it will be judged by Uncanny X-Force's nigh-impeccable standard. Read Full Review

    "Uncanny X-Force" might be the best tale of a relationship dealing with issues of inferiority and addiction ever set in the superhero world. If you look past the subtext, you get a nasty smear of comic violence that feels like Sam Peckinpah rose from the grave, got his hands on an HD camera, and started documenting the revolution he sees in his mind. There's only one issue to go on this long form tale and if ever a masterpiece needed its own omnibus then these 18 issues warrant it. Let's see what the conclusion brings us. Read Full Review

    Thank God this book contains a long recap page because I needed it. This book is gearing up to finishing off a story that has been going on for over a year. It's giving some of the payoff in this issue, which is a good thing. However, I wonder if this is rushing it too much? I guess we will find out next issue. This book is a great read as long as you have kept up throughout. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Nov 12, 2011

    Jumping on point?: Nope, not by a long shot. Not only is this issue 7 of 8 in this story, it also builds strongly from the first two story arcs of Uncanny X-Force and the 90′s Age of Apocalypse storyline. Try coming back in two issues. Read Full Review
