    Dylan Burnett goes all out with the drama and action with the amazing art in this issue. Every page drives the story forward and follows the pace of the story well. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Feb 6, 2019

    This new iteration of X-Force combines tight plotting, cutting dialogue, and an intriguing mystery with exceptional art. Taken together, these elements build to a fun, engaging, and thematically-dark story. There's a renaissance happening in the X-Books right now. This is part of it. - Review by Bethany W Pope Read Full Review

    There's revelations here. There's action. There's heart. The issue has a lot packed in and really moves the story along. It not only defines the focus of the current X-Force but it also helps place the series as to where it stands in the greater X world. The comic has a classic style to it and Brisson definitely hearkens to the feel of the team years ago. This is a back to basics comic in many ways and in doing so, it moves the series and characters along rather far. Read Full Review

    X-Force has a distinct tone, both in terms of plot and art style, and that makes it much better than most of the other X-Men books on the shelves today. Read Full Review

    I am still enjoying this book even if this issue didnt wow me as the first one did. I can still easily recommend it to everyone who enjoyed what Ed Brisson and Dylan Burnett gave us in the #1, but I hope the next issue has more for each character to do and gets a bit of the humor back in the mix.

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Feb 3, 2019

    Visually distinct and tonally on point with a mix of cynical humor and a perfect roster, X-Force is the book to read when you realize protecting those who hate and fear you is a waste of time. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Jan 30, 2019

    X-FORCE #2 doesn't bring the sophistication that the new X-Men series promised. The blatant lack of characterization and the predictable plot abase an issue that could've been much better. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Jan 30, 2019

    The second issue of X-Force sets up the stakes much better than its predecessor, but loses sight of characterization in the process . So far, there's a lot to love in small bursts but a re-tune of the core components of this book may be necessary sooner than later. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 5, 2019

    Brisson and Burnett are rushing from action to action amidst time travel and interpersonal politics of power and authority. Its kind of fun to watch from a distance, but without enough time to really engage any of the characters, this mini-series is leaning REALLY heavily on the history of the popular characters to draw-in the reader. There isnt enough impact in the story thats being told here to make any one of the characters seem terribly interesting beyond the rush of instability that welcomes aggression and explosion to nearly every page.
