The skies of Madripoor run red as Uncanny X-Force face off against Fantomex...Fantomex...and Fantomex! We know what Psylocke did last summer, and it’s a doozy! Find out in this edition of Uncanny X-Force True Hollywood Story. Storm has no tolerance for your drama. She is a mutant, a goddess, and a headmistress. She’s got enough going on. Stop with the five-paragraph texts. Do not email her. No voicemail. What happens in Paris, stays in Paris...unless Puck finds out, in which case it’s probably all over Twitter!

    UNCANNY X-FORCE is venturing into nightmare territory, but the story is anything but. It's immediately engaging, ripping the team apart and literally forcing them to confront the darkest, ugliest parts of themselves. When Bishop is the only one who can save the day, we're in for a wild ride. This issue is also a fabulous jump-on point for new or lapsed readers; with the Fantomex arc wrapped up, things are taking an entirely new direction. Read Full Review

    I still have a huge reservation that there is no team feeling to this team book. I'm also still convinced that somehow we should know who this Queen is, though I've started to doubt all of my theories to date. Still, it's at least starting to pick up the interesting threads of a plot again so I'll keep up with it for at least a little longer. Read Full Review

    In some ways Humphries shows a stronger sense of characterization in this issue. He uses his new foe to explore the fragile psyches of Storm, Psylocke, etc, we get a better sense of what drives each team member. But in other ways, the usual flaws remain. The unnecessary and censored cursing returns (though I honestly have no idea what specific words are being obscured in Puck's dialogue). And Psylocke's voice continues to feel off. This issue sees her use the words "scrubs" and "busters" as mid-fight insults. What is this, a Fast & Furious sequel? Read Full Review

    I'm looking forward to the next issue as Humphries is proving to have a good grasp on these characters. And here's hoping that he'll be able to make Bishop a character I want to read about again. Read Full Review

    UNCANNY X-FORCE #10 is stumbling, but it has moments that speak to the series and creators strengths. Perez puts a lot of himself into the entire issue, but still comes just short of saving a plot that feels tossed off. At it's best, UNCANNY X-FORCE has felt like the book for the weird kids – it's a dayglo neo-noir pop dream with mutant superheroes fighting ninjas in Los Angeles. But this issue leans a little heavily on the tropes of the franchise, and has a mainstream sheen as a result. When Humphries gets the chance to focus on the characters, to indulge in a bit of weirdness, things pick up. The thing that holds UNCANNY X-FORCE back is itself – the story seems to be getting in the way of what Humphries wants to do, and what we want to read about. A mis-step in an otherwise fascinating series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 15, 2013

    The end of the issue is a continuation of the story we've seen all too often: an X-Man, alone, is left to confront their possessed teammates. What could have been great simply feels rehashed. I like the concept of the Revenants, but I'm not a fan of the execution in this issue. Humphries and Prez can do better. I'm hopeful that "Uncanny X-Force" #10 was simply the first issue of writer and artist figuring things out as this subpar to average issue misses out on its potential for greatness. Read Full Review
