meh. too much of the silly stuff for my taste, but not bad enough to really sink it.

not much of a story. its like they finished one issue too soon and had to do something.

so this is what they did.

and.. its over. I could have liked this to continue.

The series as a whole is fun if slightly confusing with all the science thing. Hardly canon, but good exposure for Lang and especially Nadia, and a weird and endearing blue monster from a Microverse alien race.
Great art from Javier Garron.

Fill in issues are actually terrible, but this is very good as it is a scary story which actually gives depth to Strange while also introducing an intriguing new adversary. Great art.

This was the best issue yet and brings in the mediocre bad guy we’ve been waiting on. A few deaths thrown in and this issue has it all. Brisson is writing a deserving X Force story but Burnett is the weak link in this fun series. I think this story has a lot of potential I can’t wait til the first guest artist gives us the visual impact to match the storytelling.

• Ahab has returned to exterminate X-Force!

With this issue ends the first story arc of this series and for me this issue is good, but it could have been better. The action is fantastic and the chemistry between these characters improves more and more. Once again, we have an excellent character connection, this time between Cable and Domino. I like what Brisson is building around the Cable - Rachel relationship and how everything comes toge more

Ed Brisson is a great writer and one of the best Marvel has right now.
In this 4 issue run he has created a compelling story which sets up some mysteries, brings back Ahab, puts Rachel Summers on the forefront and brings back the original X Force to take revenge on “Kid Cable” for killing Cable.
However the art by Dylan Burnett is totally at odds with the epic sci fo adventure being more

Things pick up considerably in this issue and next one. The story actually becomes original and provocative, even if it still does not seem to connect to Marvel continuity.
The Klyntar Jndaka connection in this issue is intriguing as is the fight with the Panther spirit. Then next issue establishes how Wakandans have ruled by stealing memory and knowledge.

T'Challa and the rebels finally have the tools they need to recover the memories the Empire stripped from them - but not everyone thinks the past is worth saving. Especially in the face of the Empire's swift and merciless vengeance. But for T'Challa, there is only one path forward. And it may mean rebellion against his own.

I'm sorry but... I gave this series 4 issues. The art has always been great, but the story is incredibly light. I am actually shocked anyone can get any entertainment from this issue. It has the story telling of a 3rd person sci-fi shooter like Mass Effect, but only the comments your NPC team mates make during combat. Absolutely and totally atrocious. Good God.

The best Captain America story since Ed Brubaker.
I was skeptical of Tanehisi Cotes after his Black Panther run, which I found unfocused, full of subplots and a little discursive, but Costss has improved his storytelling and he delivers a compelling and provocative story.
