One of their own has already fallen and now X-Force is out for blood. It's Cyclops' mutant death-squad vs. the Purifiers!

    Still, half the work is done in selling the first arc of X-Force, as the team now has a credible and cool villain. Whether Warpath and X-23 can or will become more than Wolverine Parts II and III in either power or personality remains to be seen. Read Full Review

    I love where this series is going and I really hope it continues to deliver the "pure bad-assery" that is clearly evident in the first two issues. Read Full Review

    Moving right along, I liked the mini-focus on X-23 this issue and Wolverine's thoughts on how this is a slippery slope for these characters in terms of all the killing. The book skirts the line between extreme 90's gratuity with the character based storytelling mixed in and it's really growing on me. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 9, 2008

    Okay, the whole Warlock thing surprised me – it even made me grin a little. It's a character I've been missing for a long time. But honestly, concept aside, I don't trust Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. Plus, this idea is pretty hokey. So far, this writing team has done nothing but stumble with this story line and the concept behind it. This book is below average on all fronts – art included. Clayton Crain is good with a Wacom tablet, but his art is so inconsistent that I can't say it's good. Sometimes it looks decent (though over-rendered), other times it looks like a step up from refined thumbnails. His action sequences are also very stiff. I'd like to see this book succeed, but I just don't see it happening without a lot of help or new creative team. Read Full Review
