    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Feb 10, 2021

    X-Force #17 takes the opportunity to narrow it's focus onto a single character and in doing so opens up and broadens the development of Quentin Quire in the best possible way as it fleshes the character out in a positive and additive manner while Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 10, 2021

    X-Force #17 puts a spotlight on Kid Omega, and its wonderfully done. Percy digs into the character, reinforcing who he is for readers familiar with him and giving readers who arent what they need to know about him. He also introduces a nice little mystery into the proceedings. Cassaras art does a great job with the visuals, as usual. X-Force continues to be one of the best of the X books. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 10, 2021

    Joshua Cassara delivers some beautiful art in this issue. With the story being character focused, Cassara does a great job of making character moments have a sense of intimacy. Read Full Review

    Overall this book was an exciting dive into the life of Kid Omega. I am really excited to see where this mystery goes. I would totally be interested in more spotlight issues if they are as fun as this one was. Read Full Review

    X-Force #17 reads in a similar fashion to Excalibur #18 this week in that it's all about establishing a mystery that goes unsolved, but X-Force develops its mystery while carefully developing one of its central characters, which makes the issue much more satisfying on its own Quentin Quire has played the egotistical bad boy for a long time and these pages provide him with some very necessary depth.

    Seeing Percy dig into Quentin's subconscious to find out what makes him tick is some good character work and Cassara knocks it out of the park once again in a big way. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 13, 2021

    X-Force #17 is an enjoyable issue that focused on a character that many fans don't particularly like. Credit to Benjamin Percy for fleshing out some of the details of Kid Omega. The pencils and colors are great. There isn't much more you can say about it than that. It's some of the best artwork in a comic book this week. X-Force continues to surprise readers by offering a heartfelt issue this week. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Feb 10, 2021

    Not focused on the action, X-Force #17 makes for a strong interlude and a nice examination of one of Krakoa's less agreeable denizens. While this isn't material that could be called 'ground-breaking,' it's still an enjoyable examination of Quentin Quire. And after the teasing throughout the series, it's nice to see Quentin and Phoebe on an actual date, even if the focus in the scene is a bit one-sided. Hopefully future issues can create a stronger balance in their dynamic. Read Full Review
