    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Nov 18, 2020

    X-Force #14 focuses very much on the challenges the competitors face with less interpersonal moments between characters than in previous issues making for slightly lighter reading but is no less entertaining with brilliant art to keep you engaged page after page. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 18, 2020

    X-Force #14 continues to right the ship of X Of Swords. Its a fast-paced issue but gets across everything it needs to. Percy and Duggan dont waste a panel- everything builds the story. Cassaras art, combined with the deft coloring of GURU-eFX, is a treat for the eyes. X Of Swords started off rocky, but chapters like this prove that it can be a great story. Read Full Review

    This chapter fully embraces the overall weirdness this event has leaned into and plunges the reader face first in the Twilight Zone. Definitely a worthy addition. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Nov 18, 2020

    Overall, not a bad issue of X-Force, though as a chapter to X of Swords? Unfortunately it left much to be desired. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Nov 18, 2020

    Readers, X OF SWORDS is losing steam quickly and I don't even think Doc Browns super logs could even get this train moving at 88 mph. Now, as a stand-alone issue, it wasnt that bad. It was humorous (enough), moved incredibly fast, was easy to follow, and even squeezed in two quick, graphic battles. Nonetheless, the X OF SWORDS event is wearing thin, becoming pointless, and even trivial. Is this tournaments foundation and continued outrageousness turning into Saturnyne wanting to jump Captain Avalons bones? Is that the crux of this entire event? Readers, the weight and validity of this event is slipping away. Lets hope that the last two issues this week change my mind. Read Full Review

    Joshua Cassara delivers some awesome art in this issue. Everything from the characters to the action looks amazing. There is a well done mix of visual moments and Cassara does a great job of delivering that imagery. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alexandra Iciek Nov 18, 2020

    X-Force #14 is a well written, well illustrated issue that unfortunately suffers from overcrowding. Indeed, more attention should have been paid to certain plot elements. Be that as it may, it is still entertaining and well worth a read. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 21, 2020

    This issue embraces the pure silliness that X of Swords has become, and this event has beaten me down so much that I'm fine with it. Read Full Review
