    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 9, 2020

    X-Force #12 is tense and involving as it unfurls new dangers and surprising wrinkles in an ever interesting story about xenophobia and trusting one another. X-Force maximizes its espionage themes with mature ambiguity in a package that's thrilling. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Sep 11, 2020

    One of the reasons I feel like X-Force is such an important series in the new line of X-Books is definitely because of the threats. In X-Force, we get to see bits and pieces of how the world has adapted to mutants' place in the new world order. That includes the lengths governments and organizations of the world are willing to go to make sure the nation fails. The new villain Mikhail is a step towards seeing just how that unfolds. As we learn more about him, the organization plotting against the mutants, and their plans for Krokoa, one thing is certain. X-Force is the book where the fight to keep Krokoa alive takes place.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 9, 2020

    Bazaldua does some amazing work with the art. There are some great visual moments that showcase the power of these characters and there are some exaggerated camera movements with the panels that are intriguing. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 9, 2020

    Percy shows readers just how much X-Force is about the greys in this issue, and it's kind of fascinating. Bazaluda's art is nothing special- there are some problems, but it's not bad enough to jeopardize what is an otherwise great comic. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Sep 12, 2020

    X-Force #12 is a good book that is building for the next big X-event. Benjamin Percy has been consistently good on X-Force and this issue is business as usual. The pencils and colors really steal the show in this issue. The work done by the artist and colorist shine and the issue is all the better for it. X-Force lives up to the hype. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Sep 9, 2020

    Keep this series on your pull list but go into X-FORCE #12 anticipating more set up and less action than in the past. There is no doubt that the future definitely looks bright for this series" but this issue simply felt more flat than normal. Read Full Review

    Readers can hope that "X of Swords" won't undermine what works in the "Dawn of X" line, but its impact on X-Force this week is not cause for optimism. Read Full Review
