    Weapon X #18 is another impressive showing from the X-Men title. There is a solid focus on character to keep the reader engaged and some decent action scenes to keep the energy high. Sabretooths role as leader has made for some great issues from this title, and here's hoping there are more good issues to come. In any case, this one gets a recommendation. Check it out.

    Omega Red is backand despite the fact that its Omega Red, Pak and Van Lente (helped with some outstanding art by Yildiray Cinar and colors from Frank DArmata) give us an unexpected treat of a story. Its more fun than I expected and worth the read. Read Full Review

    A considered improvement in quality. Like said before, there was finally some actual character work happening here. Sabretooth has mostly been the comedy relief character who acts idiotic & gets beaten up. But this chapter has him reflecting on his recently reckless behavior & realizing he's much better than he's been showing. Warpath is the closest thing to a hero on this team, and he's finally had enough with the mercenary ways of Deathstrike, Domino, and Sabretooth. To him, they seem more concerned with paydays than helping others, so he separates himself to help the Omega Red's victims. Domino & Yuriko however thought it best to find Sabretooth.

    Finally, this feels like a real story.

    I'm tough but fair, and this issue was definitely a step up in quality. Warpath, Omega Red, and Sabretooth really came into their own here. There was legit conflict among the team -not just childish bickering, but a clear difference in beliefs that divides them. Omega Red has been tampered with, but is persuaded to join Sabretooth when the latter saves his life, and promises to help him. Finally Creed also comes into his own. Every single complaint to be had about Sabretooth's characterization was seemingly addressed here, and will continue to be fixed here after. If Pak can keep this up, while adding more depth to the story, then we can see a wonderful turn-around for this series. I only give a 7.5 as there was still a few flaws that can e more

    Circumstances in Siberia produce roster turnover - Warpath ditches the team and Omega Red looks poised to join. It's an issue for remarkably good character work; the prospect of death makes Sabretooth set aside some of his jackass ways. The plot is still amply stocked with lazy gimmicks - tigers outta nowhere! - and the visuals do basic storytelling without adding much to the reading experience.
