    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Feb 26, 2020

    The writing of Bejamin Percy on X-Force is truly a work of art. It is poetic. To dive so deeply into a character's inner psyche, exploring facets such as trauma and anxiety, is not easy to write. I commend Percy for his ability to sew these so beautifully together through Domino. I cannot recommend this run of X-Force enough. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 28, 2020

    Bazaldua delivers some beautiful visuals throughout this issue. The characters look amazing and the beautiful backgrounds make the panels come to life. The train sequence is fantastic from start to finish and infuses the story with an extra burst of energy towards the end. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Feb 26, 2020

    Ultimately, Ben Percy continues to make X-FORCE fast-paced, action-packed but more importantly doing it all in a way that makes this series feel vital and essential to the overall story unfolding in all X-titles. Read Full Review

    The Daily Fandom - Alex Smith-Petersen Mar 3, 2020

    Artists change around here frequently, but Bazaldua and Guru do a solid job holding it down while Cassara knocks out his next issues. It's not my favorite system in the world for managing release schedules, but when it works, it works. I do look forward to moving the focus around to other members of the team, but these past couple issues focusing on Domino have been a nice change of pace. Join me again next month as Domino returns and a new mission begins! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 26, 2020

    X-Force is a book that takes a look at the horrors that the guys who fight in the shadows have to face and doesn't look away and it's a stronger book because of that. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Feb 26, 2020

    X-Force continues to set itself apart as the "Dawn of X" spinoff with the clearest premise and a rare ability to balance action and thematic interests in each issue. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Feb 27, 2020

    It's curious to guess at where X-Force goes from here. The main villainous organization has been going on for eight issues now and feels a little undercooked, so much that their developments in this issue don't play quite as well as they should. But that's an absolute nitpick when the character work is so good. All in all, this is another fine issue that keeps X-Force near the top of the Dawn of X line where it belongs. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Feb 26, 2020

    X-Force #8 is a solid issue that finds its strength in both the commonality and contrasting positions of its two main characters with a bit of detective work and action thrown in for good measure. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Feb 26, 2020

    Overall this was a fun issue, not the best in the series but sill a really solid one. This series has been one of the finest in the ‘Dawn of X’ line-up. With the reveal at the end of this issue, one can expect things to get a lot more intense pretty soon. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 28, 2020

    Spinnings its wheels narratively and effectively defanged on the art front, this more intimately scaled X-Force does this series no favors. Read Full Review
