And I Bet You Thought Apoc Was Dead!

I have been consistently blown away by how phenomenal every new issue of Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force has been, but this issue takes the cake.

The Good

Sacrifices, compromises, preemptive strikes and love triangles are all eloquently intermingled in issue #10 of Uncanny X-Force. If you thought the last nine issues of Rick Remender's series have been good, then you should be prepared to have your mind blown in issue 10. Without giving too much away, Warren is slowly losing control of himself as Archangel begins to gradually creep out from the psychic cage Psylocke created for him. To add fuel to this fire, Magneto and Cyclops soon may not be the only people aware of X-Force's existence once blackmail photos of the team on a murder spree wind up on the desk of a hungry reporter. How will they get out of this one?

Not only is the art gorgeous, the pacing of the story is perfect. The characterizations of all team members is spot on. Extremely well written book with an ending that will both shock you and leave you begging for more.

The Bad

There are no bad things about this book. Once fully submerged into this story, you'll find you're in for an amazing ride.

The Verdict

Like I said, this series has been consistently good- but this one is the absolute best. Gorgeous art, brilliant pacing and an ending that will leave you wanting more. Perfect issue.

    Uncanny X-force #10 First off I'd like to say that Remender does a great job with character inner conflict. I thought it was shown perfectly through Angel. It looks like Uncanny X-force could be ousted to the public eye! People have found out about the mind controlled man Angel killed. When Angel gets word of this he goes and threatens the man who's going to publicize it. It's not Angel though it's Archangel threatening him. Wolverine and Psylocke go to stop him and they successfully subdue him....

    THE GOODThe art and writing are exactly what I have come to expect from the creative team(s) assigned to this book. As this is the transition book between arcs, we get a good amount of consequence from the previous arc combined with a well conceived setup for the next arc.This issue really did a great job of showing the struggle Angel is enduring. The best part is, we get to not only see his inner torment, but how it manifests itself on the outside as well.Realizing the Angel can no longer be tr...
