tale in these six issues I was glued to each page as it was exciting and fun The art helps build a darker,vicious X Men story too I loved the team dynamic and while not as strong as say Remender s run yet on that, it can shape up nicely Also, beast my dude, you have fucked up This should be good A super easy 4 out of 5 I ve enjoyed this bookthan the main X Men title It s surprisingly violent for a

survive Without getting too much into spoilers, I really like the make up of this new team, which features some characters we ve not seen in abrutal X Force type of role before and some who are very familiar , so I look forward to seeing the new sides of some of these characters that come out as a result I m particularly interested to see how far Beast is willing to take things to protect his mutant nation what we ve seen so far indicates he s willing to go pretty damn far The team composition seems pretty loose and fluid at this point as well they were forced to react to an attack and people stepped up for the task, but the team roster hardly seems finalized I d like to see a large roster that gets cherry picked from for the particular needs of the mission at hand, kind of like how the Avengers operated under Jonathan Hickman The X books are put into a difficult situation now, with mutant resurrection being a given, in that it becomes harder to establish dramatic stakes that actually matter It s an unspoken rule that comic book deaths typically don t stick in the first place, but one of the main conceits of the Dawn of X story is that there is a process in place on Krakoa to back up mutant consciousnesses and restore them to a newly created body in the event of death I feel that this X Force title does a good job establishing stakes that matter though, making the overarching story about the very survival of Krakoa and thus their entire resurrection process being under external threat from outraged humans Joshua Cassara does the majority of the book s art and he does a fantastic job with the level of detail and the dynamic action shots It s served extremely well by Dean White and Rachelle Rosenberg s bright and vibrant colors Visually, this is a bit of a departure from the dark and gritty, all black and red style of some earlier incarnations of the team given that one of its prominent members dresses in a bright green and yellow 60s gogo dancer style it s kind of hard to go overly dark with that The final chapter is penciled by Stephan Segovia, whose style is slightlycartoony, but not different enough from Cassara s style to feel particularly jarring, and the book still looks absolutely gorgeous under his artistic direction This, along with the flagship X Men title, seems to be the most essential reading to follow the Dawn of X story thread about the challenges that the new mutant nation of Krakoa is dealing with I will definitely be following this book for a while based on what they delivered in this first volume X Force is back, yet with a new direction and somewhat different approach, this time the team is basically Krakoa s whole new defensive unit, and get this, Beast is the leader, yes, that same Beast who left the X Men after finding out Cyclops formed up a mutant strike force, the X Force But that s about the only thing I didn t like in this first volume, unlike most series in Dawn of X, this one is definitely a must read, along with the main Uncanny title It s aaction oriented series, pla X Force is back, yet with a new direction and somewhat different approach, this time the team is basically Krakoa s whole

it starts out with a bang, right in the first issue, with Percy fully exploring the new capabilities of Krakoa The team roster is a lot of fun, but I kinda missed Fantomex, I m sure he will show up in no time I stopped enjoying this about mid way through, if I m honest though the signs that this would suck were there right from issue 1, which opened with the most ridiculous stunt killing of a main character in recent memory Yes, the killed character was resurrected pretty much right away big shocker , and then I kept enjoying the dynamics between Wolverine and Quentin Quire for a couple of issues, and then this devolved into just another X book It tries to be cool and edgy and dark, but it most I stopped enjoying this about mid way through, if I m honest though the signs that this would
