    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 12, 2019

    Joshua Cassara offers some breathtaking, brutal and detailed art in this issue. I was blown away by the first page and that intense, painful looking montage of what happened to Domino. It actually managed to elicit the kind of anger that Kid Omega was chiding Wolverine about. Absolutely beautiful visuals in this issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 11, 2019

    This third issue is filled with surprises, continues to offer an interesting perspective on the bigger picture, and sets in motion a new war. Characters continue to be written exceptionally well too. If you weren't already all-in on this ride this will do it for you. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Dec 12, 2019

    X-Force #3 is another very strong installment in what is most definitely a personal favorite in the DOX line up. This issue balances the gritty noir of the procedural with a more philosophical tone this time that is both interesting and enjoyable! Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 13, 2019

    After this issue, X-Force has now jumped up to a must-read title from the Dawn of X books. Being bold enough to have Xavier killed at the end of the first issue was definitely a clever way of keeping us coming back for more, but what creates investment is seeing how the writing tries to captivate us through more than shock value. X-Force #3 introduced us to a major new enemy, once again set the stakes for mutantkind, and emphasized how these aren't the same mutants who would have once ran back licking their wounds.

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Dec 12, 2019

    There are, to be fair, a couple elements that don't work quite as wellas we might want. The resolution of Domino's rescue is a little toodeus ex machina, as fun as it is. The Xavier resolution is alittle too clean as well. But those little complaints are minor dingsat best, and it's hard to be too mad at a book that's this much fun.With "The Skeleton Key," X-Force has officially found itsdirection and is confidently moving forward.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Dec 11, 2019

    X-fans can see the thought and detail Percy has put forth on every page of this weeks installment. From the opening page describing the evolution of humanity to the closing dialogue on the final pages, Percy has calculated a narrative that has become a focal portrayal that appears to be the glue that holds all the X-books together.

    X-Force is thrilling, horrifying, and fascinating; one "Dawn of X" series that seems fully prepared to embrace the potential of this new era. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Dec 11, 2019

    Overall with several of the other books being so bright and light hearted, this dark book is exactly what we need to balance it out. This book shows the harsh reality of how some of the world still views the mutants. Things are about to get interesting and I highly recommend getting on this ride if you haven’t already.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Dec 11, 2019

    X-Force #3 is another excellent read. Benjamin Percy crafts a story that should appeal to a broad range of readers. Do you like action? Percy has you covered. Do you prefer complex stories with some depth? Percy has you covered, too. Do you prefer smartly written stories with good characters? Yup. Percy takes care of you, too. I would definitely recommend picking up a copy of X-Force #3. This title is worth the cover price. Read Full Review
