    Though at the end, yet again, I'm baffled as to the importance of the Cluster, Fantomex and the evil one. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero May 29, 2013

    Sam Humphries is carving out a nice little corner of the X-Men universe in this title. The two-fronted battle with Spiral and Bishop is over but there are still pieces they need to sort out. We get some answers as to what's been going on with Bishop since we last saw him and there's a nice cliffhanger teasing us as we have to wait for the next issue. Normally having two artists is a pet peeve but it works perfectly here as the story takes place on two fronts. The method and location where Psylocke and Storm decide to keep Spiral and investigate the inner workings of Bishop's mind is a little odd but for the sake of the events that follow, it works. As we see more and more of these characters together, I can't wait to see what else Humphries has planned. Read Full Review

    This issue proves that Humphries can deliver the sort of character-centric focus the series needs. Whether the characterization can become more consistent is still the question. And when exactly this ragtag band will develop a clearer sense of purpose is equally up in the air. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Marcell May 29, 2013

    While better than last issue, “Uncanny X-Force #5″ is still behind in way of excitement. We are introduced to the force possessing Ginny, but have no means of motive yet. Also the Fantomex bits seem a bit shuffled and out of place as they don't appear in the issue until the end. The art however is still pretty good. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 30, 2013

    "Uncanny X-Force" #5 handles a huge lump of exposition in a solid and clean manner; this is information that needed to be given to us sooner or later, both about Bishop as well as the foe that's been coming after Ginny. Now that it's over, though, I'm more looking forward to what's still to come. All in all, a perfectly fine installment. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke May 29, 2013

    The problem with this issue is it feels more akin to a one shot special devoted to where Bishop has been than a team book called X-Force. The dreamscape stuff is cool, but it's used in such a heavy handed way to explain Bishop (and retcon a ton of stuff I might add) that you'll e bored to tears. Read Full Review
