    Quibbles and storytelling tactics aside, all most X-Force readers probably need to know about this issue is that they're back and they're doing what you love. If you ducked out during "Messiah War," you can finally pull your head out of the sand. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown Jul 24, 2009

    With any luck, X-Force will be able to bounce back fairly quickly. To be honest, this issue is a vast improvement over the past three, so a transitional issue like this is understandable after being thrown into a crossover. If Choi and Oback continue to provide the visuals for this book, I'm more than willing to be patient. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 21, 2009

    In this issue of "X-Force," the entire team is scattered far and wide, but the calamity at the end of the issue is sure to draw them back together once more. How this calamity affects the team remains to be seen, but rest assured there will be more blood. This is the first of four parts, with much blood, violence, and explosiveness. This isn't your daddy's X-team, and if you're picking it up for the characterization, you might want to look at a different X-title. Want some mutants with your violent comics? Then this is the right place. Read Full Review

    It's nice to see X-Force get back into the swing of things. Once it settles down a bit, I'm sure the series will regain its spot as one of the best “X” books Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 23, 2009

    The plot in this issue is a bit hard to take. In a general sense, its something we've seen countless times in various forms; but in terms of specifics, this issue is completely inaccessible to new readers. The art by Choi and Oback is the saving grace, but even it struggles with some major issues. Read Full Review
