    Secret Wars was all murky and dark, but this looks amazing. So clean and... visible. Kyle/Yost are going out on a high.

    I hope this story is collected with a lot of great extras. Dell'Otto's work definitely deserves to be presented in an oversized edition.

    Unlettered previews irk me, but anywho. I like the X-Force idea--a band of the most lethal X-peoples sent off to do the dirty work that Cyclops can't or won't have the X-Men do themselves--but the book always falls flat on this premise. Exactly what dirty work have they accomplished that isn't standard superhero fare? The book rides on constant injections of violence.

    Dell'Otto is an incredibly interesting artist, but every pitch is the same. Dark, angular, and nothing but contrasts. Would it kill him to use color once in a while?

    Ugh, sorry. Negative, ranty post.

    Superheroes don't kill people not unless they HAVE too or by accident. X-Force goes in with the intent to kill not just stop the bad guys.

    I couldn't see Laura coming back in time, from the Messiah War, and just slapping the Leper Queen. I know, there was no time but if she had more time she still would have killed her.

    That doesn't apply universally to superheroes.

    X-Force was formed as a kind of superhero wet-works squad, but all they've done is get caught in time-travel hijinks (a tired X-Men cliche), saving the world (another tired X-Men cliche), and getting beat up before they sock it to the bad guys in the final act (rinse, repeat ad nauseum). My point is that they aren't and have never been what they were billed as: a superhero wet works squad. They've been a mediocre team with a (half) sub-par cast.

    What's much rarer in mainstream superhero comics (outside the Authority and Supreme, sometimes the very terrible Invincible) is to present a superhero team that's actually good at what it does. Whedon's closing run of Astonishing X-Men gave us exactly that, and that's one of the reasons why it's so darn good: the X-Men finally get their act together.

    But here's X-Force, bumbling around, and oh, look, someone's going to slit Wolverine's throat in the preview. It's old hat.

    So true and it's a pity there are only 3 issues.

    I thought it was for five issues. So pretty.

    I know. It's great, isn't it?

    Exactly what dirty work have they accomplished that isn't standard superhero fare?
    What?

    The book rides on constant injections of violence.
    I don't know if that's true, but the violence was nice.

    Dell'Otto is an incredibly interesting artist, but every pitch is the same. Dark, angular, and nothing but contrasts. Would it kill him to use color once in a while?
    ...but, that's the style Dell'Otto does. Would it kill Joe Mad to use some photo realism? Land to not use photo ref? Finch to not use cross-hatching?

    OK.

    but all they've done is get caught in time-travel hijinks (a tired X-Men cliche), saving the world (another tired X-Men cliche), and getting beat up before they sock it to the bad guys in the final act (rinse, repeat ad nauseum).
    It was only 28 issues long, with a couple one-shots on the side. I don't know how it could be so recycled for you. Messiah War was not cliche time travel hyjinks. They more or less facilitated Selene's rise to power, because they over-extended themselves with so much focus--wait, did you read the series?

    My point is that they aren't and have never been what they were billed as: a superhero wet works squad.
    I'm pretty an X-Force member kills someone in nearly every issue.

    They've been a mediocre team with a (half) sub-par cast.
    Oh! I get it, this is about taste. Subjective, not objective. You weren't interested in the cast and its premise, so you didn't really bother to read it. All right.

    How do you feel about Chris Yost, Craig Kyle, and X-23?
