    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 26, 2018

    The artwork is a bit unexpected in the main story but this debut issue is solid in every aspect. It has the action, the violence, the humor, and the right attitude. It all comes together in a way that is a welcome return to the classic misfit team from the 90s and me excited to read more of their adventures. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Dec 28, 2018

    The opening issue of this relaunch is packed with keen characterisation, sharp dialogue, and absolutely fantastic art. If you like your X-Books to be a little darker and morally murky than Red or Uncanny, this is a great series to pick up. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 26, 2018

    X-Force #1 was a solid start for the series. I was hoping for a bit more from the confrontation with Cable, but all good things do still come in time. This first issue was a satisfying set-up from what we can expect from this murderous bunch, and for establishing where Cable stands in the current state of the MU. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Dec 28, 2018

    X-Force was a surprise hit this week. Ed Brisson has made this team of old friends feel fresh, and they have a new path and mission. The pencils and colors were fine enough, but I look forward to seeing how they grow as the series progresses. X-Force was my favorite book this week. Read Full Review

    Overall, the first issue of the relaunched X-Force ticks a lot of boxes for X-Force fans " ultraviolence, dark humor, and zero tolerance for hatemongers. Read Full Review

    The narrative isn't anything X-Fans haven't seen before, but if Brisson can make the team this entertaining every issue, you're not going to mind. Read Full Review

    This is an interesting and tense first issue. There is a new dynamic for these characters being created by Ed Brisson and it is actually entertaining and fun to see how they interact with a younger Cable in their midst. Read Full Review

    One issue in, I may not be completely sold on the group, but there's enough here to pique my curiosity for another issue or two. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Dec 31, 2018

    X-Force #1 isn't a bad comic, but it feels like it's all been done before. Instead of spinning out of recent X-related events into new and exciting directions, some set by Brisson himself, this comic feels rooted in the past and unable to escape the pull of humdrum struggle of mutant versus mankind and mutant versus mutant.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 31, 2018

    Continuity issues, art problems and some unclear story bits combine to make for a hard read, but the backup story is a lot of fun. Read Full Review
