    What an incredible book. This issue is a perfect example of what an excellently written one and done story should be. We had everything in this issue. There were heroes fighting against an overwhelming villain. They didn't win, but they lived to fight another day. There was plenty of action and suspense. There was sacrifice and despair.

    Outer Realm Comics - DeShawn Jan 6, 2012

    This issue serves as a prologue to Marvel's upcoming Age of Apocalypse series. Although very well written, many creative decisions made in this issue are questionable and sure to upset some readers, especially those who hold Marvel's Age of Apocalypse storyline and their characters in high regard. If you expected the upcoming Age of Apocalypse title to be reminiscent of that which debuted in the 90's, you may be left disappointed and even frustrated over the drastically different direction established in this prologue. Outside of running the risk in alienating the more "traditional" fans, this issue offers great character depth and exciting storytelling, the type you would usually expect from Rick Remender.

    Comic Book Bin - Dan Horn Jan 4, 2012

    This isn't a terrible chapter in Remender's UXF series, but it certainly feels incomplete. I wouldn't have liked to see this stretch on for any more issues, but I would have liked to have seen a more restrained and thoughtful prologue here to Age of Apocalypse. Even something like Prophet's vignette in the mess that was Point One would have sufficed if dilated to a single-issue story. With UXF #19 just released and #20 right around the corner (Rick Remender remaining as industrious as ever), it's fairly easy to dismiss this book's flaws, enjoy its strengths, and look eagerly to the future.

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jan 8, 2012

    As a piece of entertainment, there's no doubt that it's well-executed story. As a product, though, it's difficult to justify (to the buyers) why they should have read an issue of one series under the name of another. Despite the thematic similarities and a little narrative confluence, there's nothing here that justifies the name "Uncanny X-Force" being put on the cover. If Marvel wants to dispel the notion that Point One issues are skippable, issues like this aren't the way to do it. Read Full Review

    Uncanny X-Force is among the best books out there today. If you want to jump on to this series then this is simply not the issue to start with. However, if you think you might want to read Age of Apocalypse then this is a must-read issue. Remender tells an interesting story but it just doesn't hit the right tempo with this cast. Tan provides solid art but it feels like it was washed away in post-production. Despite the three dollar price tag instead of four, this issue is something that can be skipped. Read Full Review
