    Weapon X #17 delivers a pleasant surprise this week with a comic that is equal parts tense and funny. Greg Pak and Fred van Lente deliver on the narrative while Cinar and DArmata do excellent work on the visuals. This one gets a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Maybe not perfect, but pretty darn good. Good art, good characterization, and fantastic interactions between Sabretooth and the rest of Weapon X. Its an overall fun issue! Read Full Review

    It's okay, but it could be a lot better. A standard Pak script is dragged down severely by both the pencils and the colors. Read Full Review

    For the first time in awhile there's a reason to wonder what happens next, and that's enough to consider this issue a success. Read Full Review

    On decent notes. Domino's characterization was better. We didn't get the ditsy party girl. We. imo, got a decent balance of a fun Domino, who also can be serious. Yuriko clarifies that she's a cyborg. Great, since she was lumped in with mutants in the first arc & Taylor's ANW. It's also good Pak made an attempt to acknowledge what this team does. They're the hunting unit in charge of dealing with threats. Kitty has them as an official team, and lent them some wings for the black ops missions. Still holes there, but good some effort was made to answer why this team still exists.

    Now for the bad. There's timeline issues. Since chapter 16, we time-skipped a good bit. Domino is in her new solo outfit & Logan has all of his injuries f more

    Sabretooth is put in charge of the hunt for Omega Red. Everybody agrees this is a terrible idea, yet the plot pushes on. Art with considerable storytelling talent helps tremendously to make this a barely-satisfying read. Standard Weapon X rules apply - the problematic characterization encourages you to consider this as a juvenile, continuity-light bit of hearsay. Like a not-at-all believable yarn Old Man Logan would tell after a LOT of beers.

    I gotta say the series doesn't do any of the character justice. Aside from Logan, none of the characters are used that often, and it's sad the book all of them have been in the longest in recent years, happens to be this. Pak seems to care more about making the characters "hip & funny" for kids, rather than writing them like they're supposed to be taken seriously. This chapter is no different. The sitcom dialogue is horrible, there's many issues with the timeline. Finally, once again, Pak shows his lack of research on the characters. He writes them as inexperienced in areas where we've seen them in the past. Namely Sabretooth, not knowing Omega Red at the beginning of the chapter, and acting like he's never been in charge before. Both of wh more
