    X-Force #42 offers the final form of Beast vs. X-Force in a slight let down to that part of the story. The visuals are good, and seeing what kind of world Beast's vision could create, but the resolution is far too easy and quick for its own good. Read Full Review

    X-Force's long-simmering plot lines come to a head, and it's satisfying as hell. Read Full Review

    What the heck was the dang point of X-Force #42? It was the epitome of a Saturday Morning Cartoon adventure that amounted to absolutely nothing. A possible future romp that merely exposed the lack of continuity amongst the ongoing X-Men titles simply to showcase a cool amalgam of Beast and Nimrod. The story itself oozed with potential solely to be quickly torn down by an otherwise silly moment that later ushers our X-Force team back to the present. Truthfully, X-Force #42 proves that new blood needs to be on this title. The plots potential was trumped by its goofy culmination and inadequate storytelling. Readers, X-Force #42 is skippable and doesnt affect the overall plot at all nor does it impact the other X-books. When you read a comic, you want to feel like the money you spend is worth it and this just isnt anymore. Read Full Review
