    Its a mostly forgettable story with fantastic characters. Sabretooth and crew save this issue from being just another boring slugfest. If you like the characters, you wont regret checking this one out. Read Full Review

    Weapon X #23 is a mess and that's honestly what makes it awesome. Read Full Review

    Weapon X #23 is another bafflingly unentertaining issue from what could be one of the best X-books on the market. The talent and cast are all there; its just that the dialogue is pretty bad, the pacing is minimal, and Deadpool is present. Unfortunately, I cant recommend this one. Id suggest giving it a pass.

    Deadpool's presence turns this issue into a nonstop slapstick fight. Yeah, he's disrespectful to the Weapon X team, but hey, the creators are acknowledging that their series isn't really respectable. Fortunately, the humor is outstanding and the characters are splendidly drawn. The same can't be said for the settings; this whole issue takes place in a featureless void. The plot also crosses well over the line between "absurd but logical" and "sheer nonsense," and that (even more than the missing backgrounds) keeps me from calling this issue good.

    Like chapter 22, this issue was decent enough to enjoy, but heavily flawed. Some dialogue is still very corny & uncomfortable for the cast -mainly from Sabretooth & Domino. The issue has still maintained a decent quality that, while sometimes annoying, is not angering like earlier chapters. At this point, the book isn't going to change. Pak is set on writing it as a light-hearted action comedy. So if you go into it with that in mind, it may save disappointment. Despite the cast, this is not a gritty tale like many fans would like. Moving from occasional cringey dialogue, the #1 issue in this chapter is in the paragraph below.

    The chapter's biggest issue is how Deadpool comes in & manhandles everyone. While Wade is a clever fight more
