    Overall, X-Force as a series continues to stand out to me in a crowded X-Men comic book lineup. The action heavy approach works perfectly, especially because Ed Brission, Dylan Burnett, and Jesus Aburtov do a great job of moving the story forward with these action scenes, meaning it never just serves as filler to eat page space. The story is just never stuck in place which I love. It's like a Fast and Furious movie a bit, some of the team might get a little lost in the shuffle of events, but the series as a whole is a fun experience to me with enough character to keep you invested. I also really really look foward to Dylan Burnett on art and find his take on characters unquie working perfectly with this book right now. Read Full Review

    I really like the storytelling balance the creators achieve here. This issue is almost all-fighting, all-quipping, non-stop plot development. But that Cannonball/Cable scene is a perfect demonstration of the capacity to balance out the action and keep the characters three-dimensional. X-Force is rolling along as a fast, loud story, but it's also quite a smart one. Read Full Review

    Being able to pause the murder-porn for a second and have a "I know you're both my mentor and my mentor's murderer so I need you to work with me to make this work" was the second most intense Cannonball action I've seen (The first, of course, being when he punched way up taking on Gladiator). Keep stuff like that coming and maybe bring Scott Summers into the action somehow and this book has the potential to scratch a much needed X-itch. Read Full Review

    It feels like all the pieces are here to make for a great series, but even now it's assuredly an entertaining one. Read Full Review
