    X-Force has been a consistent source of quality and depth throughout the "Dawn of X" and makes it clear in issue #16 that this standard will only be improved during "Reign of X." It is an outstanding achievement on its own and one that enhances the entire line of comics surrounding it. Read Full Review

    X-FORCE #16 was totally unexpected and wildly entertaining. Percy delivers nonstop action, cool new toys, special guest stars, character development, and stunning plot twists that will deeply captivate X-MEN fans while flirting with new questions and ideas that could be staples for the future of the series.

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Jan 20, 2021

    This issue is a fun undersea romp that captures the atmosphere of a "terror from the deep" themed storyline perfectly through brilliantly drawn and colored art while making sure to pay attention to character voice and dialogue accuracy through the writing. X-Force continues to be a consistently well written and illustrated comic that knows exactly what it is and has fun doing it. Read Full Review

    Krakoa's black ops team fights a bunch of Lovecraftian ocean monsters, but the real threat is the guy calling the shots. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 27, 2021

    X-Force #16 is a little heavy handed with the metaphor at its center, but Percy makes up for it with the deft character that has become his stock in trade. The issue is also pretty exciting, with Cassaras art looking great and really getting across the gravity of the situation. X-Force continues to impress and has quickly become one of the best X-Men books being published. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 20, 2021

    X-Force #16 was just the kind of issue I needed to jump back into this book. And this issue did right by us for the opportunity taken to question just how appreciative the mutants should be for a paradise that can kill them just as easily as an outside threat. Read Full Review

    A couple small rough patches are overshadowed by interesting moral quandaries and absolutely stellar art. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jan 20, 2021

    While that may be a far cry from the high fantasy antics of X of Swords, X-Force #16 gets the team back into the dirty business of protecting Krakoa from the threats that can't be talked down. While the story this time around feels a little disconnected from the line, Benjamin Percy, Joshua Cassara, Guru-eFX, and their merry band of mutant murderers work to find their feet again in the wake of the latest X-event. Let's hope they survive the experience (except for Quentin Quire, of course). Read Full Review

    Overall this was a fun, creepy and exciting read. It was a great change if pace, if only for one issue. Read Full Review
