    The Daily Fandom - Alex Smith-Petersen Feb 1, 2020

    Six issues deep now and X-Force is killing it. I myself am a huge fan of the whole line, as evidenced by my other work here, but even still I hold a special place for this series. There's so much potential here going forward and you can tell Percy has quite a bit up his sleeve. Even the little pieces of the book work so well, it's immensely satisfying to see it come together so well. I hope he gets to have this book for a long time to come and continue bringing on the incredible caliber of artists we've been lucky to have so far. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 29, 2020

    Stephen Segovia delivers some beautiful art throughout this issue and the action is breathtaking. I love the way the characters look and how they take over the panel. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Jan 29, 2020

    Ben Percy continues to make X-FORCE the most pertinent and aggressive X-title on the market. Each issue connects to the overall story well, holds weight within the narrative, and displays purpose, importance, and drive within the story. When you read X-FORCE, you feel like youre not only getting your moneys worth but also leave the issue feeling like the story has substance and value. Percy creates another fascinatingly well-written tale thats easy to read and hard to forget. This series and issue are a must buy to any X-fan and should be on your pull list. Understandably, financial cuts may need to be made with the borage of titles on the market. However, X-FORCE is the one that NEEDS to stay on your list until further notice. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Feb 1, 2020

    Benjamin Percys choice to filter the story through Beasts POV and showing behind the hood of his orchestration of the mutant CIA gives X-Force #6 incredible narrative focus to go with Stephen Segovia and Guru e-FXs precise, powerful visuals. Its a memorable addition to the Dawn of X books ongoing saga of a presumably utopian society uses decidedly non-utopian methods to maintain it with X-Force definitely getting to explore the non-utopian part in a creative way with a fantastic ensemble cast.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 29, 2020

    Overall, this was another engaging issue of X-Force which gave us the right kind of exposure to the function of this team. Now we understand their structure better, and where intelligence plays the biggest role in being different from every other version of this team we have gotten up to this point. Not to mention, this may be the best writing we have gotten out of Beast in a good long while. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Jan 30, 2020

    There are a lot of plot elements going in this book right now. We stilldon't know much about the masked puppet masters from the first fiveissues, and this new threat revealed in "Intelligence" may or may notend up tying into that. But this book seems like the kind that will bebetter with at least a couple (if not more) threats for the team to dealwith. As the Dawn of X books move into their next stages and with newbooks are about to arrive soon, X-Force is well positioned alongwith Marauders to be one of the leaders of the line. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 29, 2020

    Get inside Beast's head in this interesting look at how the X-Force makes sometimes immoral decisions for the greater good. Who watches the watchmen, indeed. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jan 29, 2020

    X-Force continues to deliver excellent action and plenty of witty barbs, but it's greatest strength is its critique of how organizations like the CIA overestimate their own abilities and doom innocents. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 6, 2020

    X-Force #6 feels like a nice one and done issue that will have greater consequences in the future. Percy focuses on Beast in this one, showing how he runs black ops. His mindset is very scientific and methodical, which fits him perfectly. The art by Stephen Segovia is good. It serves the script very well. All in all, this is an entertaining issue with an ending that shows that maybe Beast doesn't go far enough in his methods. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Jan 29, 2020

    X-Force #6 pulls you deeper into the morally grey world of Krakoa's black bag operations team in a story that uses Beast as the focus to ultimately ask questions about the morality of what X-Force is doing... It really asks: is "a little evil" in the name of the "greater good" really how things need to be done? You decide. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Jan 31, 2020

    Having established the operation's existence with its opening story - a factor which becomes recontextualized here by a killer data page - Benjamin Percy refines the series' focus with each passing issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 1, 2020

    The politics around the direction Charles Xavier and others are taking the nation of Krakoa continues to get complicated. X-Force #6 adds to those complications as we see what happens when a developing nation is able to use crude versions of Krakoa's technology and medicine. Where Benjamin Percy and other writers take this latest development will be highly intriguing to watch develop over time. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jan 30, 2020

    Overall this is an adequate instalment to the ‘X-Force’ series. It’s one of the weaker issues but still gives us a fun mission to see the team go out on. There is heavy commentary by Beast which lends to an insight of how he runs the team. Not explosive, but still an enjoyable read. Read Full Review
