    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 7, 2020

    X-Force #13 is a great Wolverine comic, and that's a good thing. Percy's chapters of X Of Swords are the best so far because they not only move that story forward but also don't feel at all like crossover issues. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 7, 2020

    Viktor Bogdanovic delivers some impressive and awesome art in this issue. The characters look fantastic and the action is amazing as well. Some of the best visual moments are the ones between Logan and Solem. A great looking issue from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Nonetheless, just like WOLVERINE #6, if you're an X-FORCE fan that's not really into X OF SWORDS, this title isn't really required. You can take some time off this week if you wish and not miss the current storyline in X-FORCE. That said, I wouldn't recommend it because this issue was fire! Percy and WOLVERINE go together like peanut butter and fluff" or like a Hell Forge and a Muramasa blade! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Oct 9, 2020

    However, none of this stops Issue #13 from being a fast paced, action heavy team up that does a good job of setting the stage for an eventual showdown between “The Best There Is” and his new friend. Viktor Bogdanovic's artwork is overall impressive, doing a great job of staying consistent with the aesthetic from Wolverine #6. The color palette is actually really fun and lively for a comic that takes place in Hell.Bottom Line: Only a handful of installments in, it's more than clear that the "X of Swords" saga is meant to be dense. So, it's good that its diverging plotlines are so much fun like this one while still giving us everything we love about a good Wolverine story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Oct 7, 2020

    X-Force #13 is more in the moment focused as an issue than Wolverine #6 which was part one of this two-part story. It's an issue that again is a push along narratively to place Wolverine on the board for the contest. Percy and the art team make it interesting though by exploring the differences between Logan and Solem against a background that sees them work together while throwing in some hell-fueled action to boot.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Oct 11, 2020

    The more the X of Swords storyline moves on, the more interesting it gets. Line wide cross overs can be tricky because there are multiple writers involved, but so far everything has been great. Benjamin Percy delivers another entertaining script that should build a following for Solem. The pencils and colors were dark and moody, which is exactly what you would expect from a story in hell. X-Force #13 is a must own for Wolverine fans. Read Full Review

    Overall there isn't much to say but this is an exciting action packed closure to the previous chapter. With this, Wolverine is now ready for the tournament. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 10, 2020

    This issue does a good job making Wolverine's pursuit of a sword interesting. The mood, both in writing and artwork, does a lot to make this an enjoyable issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 7, 2020

    X-Force #13 is an interesting continuation of the 2-part story that started in Wolverine #6. There's a fantasy element to the book that works thanks to some cool visuals early on and a rather interesting Solem. He's not quite what you might expect, which may be the point. However, the last few pages serve to move the characters from point A to point B, rather than deliver on an exciting action-packed finish. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Oct 7, 2020

    The thrill of X-Factor #4 came in part by watching the series' writer weave the story of its ongoing series into a massive crossover event; X-Force punts in pushing the crossover's story forward, but failing to acknowledge a single reason why readers pick up this series. It's a disappointment as a fan of the core series because of that disconnect. Read Full Review
