    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 19, 2012

    This is how you end a series. After all these issues, we have grown attached to the characters in the way that Rick Remender has guided them. He has had a knack for doing the unexpected and even some cruel things from time to time. It's bittersweet to see the series end but Remender ends it in a truly fitting way. Having Phil Noto here as the artist makes it that much easier to say our goodbyes. It's been a great thirty-five issues. The ride isn't completely over as we will still see many of the characters in other series. Bravo to Remender, Noto and Frank Martin Jr.Can we get a Rick Remender UNCANNY X-FORCE complete omnibus now? Read Full Review

    This of course is only the end of this iteration of the book. Uncanny X-Force volume 2 is on its way as part of the Marvel Now! Re-launch. All I have to say is that the new creative team has its work cut out for it. This was a book that always kept you guessing and more often than not shocked you with just how far things were taken. Is issue # 35 good? The answer is a resounding yes. It's a fitting and well-crafted ending that delivers us an intricate web of loss, perseverance and hope. Read Full Review

    There were no big fight scenes or explosions in this issue, but they weren't needed. This is the resolution, this is Rick Remender's final goodbye on this series. Uncanny X-Force #35 may have its stereotypes and overly used plot executions, but it is crafted in a way that makes all other attempts look shameful. No one could ask for a better resolution, a wonderful tying of loose ends, and an exciting open door for further stories from X-Force and Remender. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Dec 21, 2012

    This series, along with the clever and amazing writing and plots, usually was a visual joy, granting us some great work from Jerome Opena, Esad Ribic and Rafael Alburquerque among others. Phil Noto, with his work on this issue and a good chunk of the Final Execution saga, can proudly stand among them, having done wonders in this issue and the title overall. While this particular issue is mostly people talking, he draws very vivid facial expressions, making us even more invested in what the characters are saying, pinpointing their very emotions with panache.The A very solid ending for an amazing series. Full of emotions and clever development for its characters, this is the ending it deserves. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Dec 21, 2012

    For those familiar with Rick Remender's work, one thing is absolutely clear: the man loves music. From his humble beginnings in comics with thinks like “Black Heart Billy” or to more recent references to Mogwai not-so-subtley placed in “Captain America” #1, the influence of music on his work is more obvious than how magic works in “Phonogram.” To that end, “Uncanny X-Force” has very much been like a great rock album in its execution: it opened up with a kick-ass first track called ‘The Apocalypse Solution,' a track full of memorable riffs that set the tone for the rest of the album, before moving into an album full of popular singles and radio sensations like ‘The Dark Angel Saga' plus a few kinda-filler-but-still-good tracks like ‘Otherworld,' all before coming together in a big penultimate track that preludes the end of the record in ‘ Read Full Review

    Uncanny X-Force #35 is a great final chapter in a truly epic (in the legit sense of the word, and not the everyday erosion of the meaning of the word now used to describe fails and socks) saga. Remender, much like Jonathan Hickman, is a guy who writes big and ends well. I'll miss this book, and I'm as surprised as anyone that we went out on a happy note. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Dec 19, 2012

    Admittedly, there were some bumps in the road with an odd issue here and a mismatched art style there, but overall the series almost always had tight scripting and looked consistent, largely thanks to talented colorist Dean White. That this series will end and two will take its place stands as a testament to Remender's resounding success. It gripped us with its unforgettable opening arc, amazed us with its masterful Dark Angel Saga that earned one of IGN's rare perfect 10 scores, and filled us with emotions we never thought a mutant kill-squad could evoke.

    In that point, there's also a big of a negative, but it's one that is pretty much the nature of comics. Unlike an indie or creator-owned title, when a run on a superhero book ends it's pretty much never completely conclusive because it's just one writer handing off the reigns to the next. Each writer pretty much has to put the toys back in the box how they found them, and while Remender has left some pretty deep scars on the toys, he's still handing stuff off to different writers and taking stuff to different titles. So what is supposed to be a conclusion isn't really completely conclusive, but it is more an end to one act of a larger play. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 22, 2012

    Uncanny X-Force #35 takes a group of characters that I generally can take or leave, puts them in a situation that is truly bizarre, and makes me care about them, wrapping things up in satisfactory fashion and earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. It's nice to see that no character is beyond having a good story told with them, no matter how over-played, overexposed or ill-advised, something that readers and creators alike should take note of" Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Dec 21, 2012

    Uncanny X-Force is one of the best series I've read in recent years. This issue is very calm and hits on the portions of the story that occurred ten or fifteen issues ago. This might not be ideal for someone that came in for the most recent arc, but it helps to hold together the theme of this issue: relationships. Amazingly, this book has a happy ending. Then again, if you viewed this book as a love story then it makes sense. This was a bittersweet ending to a terrific book. Read Full Review

    "Uncanny X-Force" #35 isn't a big, pulse-pounding, seat-of-your-pants issue of the series. It is, however, a nice epilogue to the series as a whole. It's nice to see a book not just end but actually come to a conclusion, and that's exactly what we got here. Read Full Review

    Modern Age Comics - Alexander Moser Dec 20, 2012

    It is worth noting that readers who have never triedUncanny X-Forceby Remender should definitely try the series from the beginning. If you read any X-books, this is one of the influential titles that changed the status quo for many characters such as Angel, Psylocke, and the introduction of Genesis. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 22, 2012

    I suppose it's not really fault of Rick Remender's, but this series definitely goes out with a whimper instead of a bang. It's a fine epilogue, I suppose, and ties up various issues nicely. But I think I've just stopped caring. So much else is happening at Marvel these days, and I don't particularly have any personal interest in any of these characters. It's nice that he got to wrap up the series how he wanted, but all of these endings are just leading to new beginnings. Pyslocke and Lady Fantomex are jumping straight into a new Uncanny X-Force soon enough. So this was a nice send-off to Rick Remender's stories, but I can't garner any particular interest or care, and that's on me. Though at least he killed off Daken. Let's hope Marvel never feels the need to resurrect him ever again. Read Full Review

    This was a tremendous issue, and the series couldn't have ended any better. I am sad that the series is ending but I am happy that it ended the way it did, and that Remender will be on decent series. I would highly recommend this to anyone whether you've read X-Force before or not, as it's terrific, and that if you're a new reader to this series I'd advice getting the other issues, whether in comic form, or the collected trade paperbacks, as it's a brilliant series, and you'd be glad you got it.
