    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Dec 19, 2017

    Pak and Cinar are the perfect team for this title. We see just enough humor injected into the story to keep us entertained and yet when the action finally heats up we're given a battle where the stakes are innocent human lives. Sabretooth makes a gruesome discovery about their opponents and the secret of their fearlessness the twist at the end of this issue will make us want the next issue ASAP! Read Full Review

    I was pretty hard on Weapon X the last time I reviewed it, but this issue shows that there is still quite a bit of life in the series. While this issue isn't particularly deep or thought-provoking, it is a good bit of fun with a cool team of heroes who get along in an entertaining way. I can recommend that, and you should feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    This is a series that has consistency on it's side and if you're a fan of darker Marvel titles, Weapon X is worth a read. Read Full Review

    This title has an abundance of riches with its artists, now it just needs to give them a more compelling story to render. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Jan 1, 2018

    If you havent read Weapon X yet, dont pick this book up. If you stuck with Weapon X through the entire Weapons of Mutant Destruction storyline then youre like me and too stubborn to drop it and this book probably wont tip the balance for you. But dont get excited for it. Theres nothing jaw-dropping about it. Read Full Review

    Pak has not been good to the main cast. Domino & Sabretooth are caricatures and Lady Deathstrike is just a prop. All of these are problems throughout the series. But Domino & Sabretooth's characterization is bleh.

    Going into the caricature I mentioned with Domino. The entire opening scene, she's obsessing about money and brings up robbing banks three times to get some. Since when is Neena a common bank robber? Warpath gets a distressed message from an acquaintance in Santo Marco, which sets up their next mission. With that, Domino is excited because Santo Marco has a bank that's notorious for drug money they could get. Neena has been reduced to a money-fetish.

    Next is Sabretooth. In this chapter, Creed complains the t more

    The Stabby Mutie Brigade is on the verge of splitting up when Warpath gets an urgent distress call: The banana republic of Santo Marco is getting into mutant cleansing in a big nasty way, and their play is backed by super-soldiers with the US flag on their face. That's right, Jerk Squad is going after Nuke, an underdog contender for Greatest Marvel Jerk Of All Time! It's a decent setup. Greg Pak's script goes after it in a by-the-numbers way. Warpath actually gets a slightly interesting role to play, but Domino is still making "let's get paid" jokes, Sabretooth prefers "let's kill suckers" jokes, and Deathstrike is superfluous yet again. Yildiray Cinar redeems the weakness of the script with some outstanding art, keeping this issue just ins more

    This issue wasn't very good. The story was not compelling. The characters weren't written well. The art is the best thing about this book.
