    If you havent read Weapon X yet, this is the issue to start. If you stopped, this issue would be a great one to jump back on. Its a fun issue and what the title should have been from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Weapon X (Force?) #22 is an intriguing new start for this team of X-Men antagonists and mercenaries. Their first mission is a nice call back to the flawed-yet-enjoyable Uncanny X-Men under Cullen Bunn, and this new take on Sabretooth is a good bit of fun. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 15, 2018

    Though Weapon X maintains its tradition of stupidity, in this issue it is endearingly stupid rather than aggressively or insultingly stupid. It invites you to put your feet up, throw your brain into idle, and enjoy the dysfunctional antics of prickly, innately funny anti-heroes. It is not meaningful or momentous storytelling, but it is entertaining. Embrace the silliness on its own terms and you will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The evolution of Victor Creed continues in Weapon X #22 and even with the team turning from heroics to, essentially, mutants for hire, he just can't seem to escape doing good. That character development is what makes this issue worth reading even if it's starting to become repetitive that each issue we're reminded that Sabretooth has turned a new leaf. Read Full Review

    Sabretooth's new, more mercenary Weapon X-Force makes it debut by caper-ing its way through a cult to rescue Monet St. Croix. Rock-solid art and snappy, salty irreverence in the dialogue make this a successful and enjoyable comic. It's still miles away from depicting any of its characters with "must-read" depth, but it's re-snared the feeling of popcorn fun that this title has at its best. It flirts with brainless stupidity, but there's a sound core of thoughtful characterization that reassures me the creators aren't just on cruise control.

    This was a better chapter. In improves from the last 3 issues & is much better than the first 17. An argument can be made that it's still too light in tone for the characters. I agree, but it was light without making the characters seem to childish.

    The biggest prop for this chapter is it finally addressing a hanging thread regarding one of the character's past relationships that has been left unresolved for almost 2 years now. It was a pleasant surprise, and good to finally have it come up again since it seemed like it had just been erased. I recommend the chapter on that alone, being a fan of the relationship between the two characters. It's hinted there may still be romantic feelings on one party's end, but said party insists more
