omertalvendetta's Uncanny X-Force #6 - Deathlok Nation: Chapter 2 review

Wow. Just wow!

As I've mentioned in very many reviews, specifically for this series, the color choices, particularly in the logo and backdrops, continues to be one of my favorite aspects of the variety it presents to the covers.  If I lay them all out on a desk, they'd make for some awesome covers with astounding colors throughout.  Colors have varied more in this arc, however, so consistency is great. 
The Good: 
Where do I begin?  Last issue did not really do it for me.  It wasn't an altogether terrible issues, I think I still gave it 4/5 stars because the writing was still superb.  Here, it is even more grandiose.  The repercussions of this storyline, if the heroes don't succeed, would be as impactful as the previous arc with Apocalypse.  A few panels here also mention a few things about that particular incident, so it seems Remender has a lot more to tell about the first arc, and in particular how it will eventually correlate with this or future arcs.  This arc is very ambitious, but that's the main I love about it.  It really gets you thinking about what it means for the future of both these five characters and the X-Men as a whole.  Hell, the whole Marvel universe is affected, and I mean that truthfully, not in the same old Fear Itself cliché kind of way.   
The Bad: 
Really, as it was a few issues ago, the only bad thing about this issue is having to wait until the next issue comes out on such a cliffhanger.  It may be predictable, but it will definitely give way to more action akin to the first arc. 
You have got to be picking this issue up.  I've been listening to several podcasts later, and a group of people dislike Remender's writing.  Of course, everyone's entitled to their opinion; I just cannot fathom how anyone can pick these up and not enjoy them thoroughly.  The point is, if you're a fan of any of the five characters on the covers of Uncanny X-Force, do yourself a favor and give this series a chance.  Amazing!

    Taking Back the World 0

    After killing Fantomex's mother and taking the mysterious "World", X-Force is left wondering who is behind this ambush of Deathlok cyborgs?  The Good First off, the art is amazing. Esad Ribic is on cover and interior duites on this book, and like the last issue, he is just blowing me away. Ribic's got some amazing action-packed panels that goes so well with Remender's writing. Other great things about this issue are the pacing and the characterization of certain characters. The pacing is perfect...

    Cannot absolve you 0

    After the last issue which through me, the unfamiliar reader, into a story deeply surrounding Fantomex did not lead to the best comic reading experience.  Here though the writers have turned things around and with the provision of a little bit of detail in relation to the back story this issue really takes off.  Well it does and it doesn't.  The first bit is a well executed bit of action but it is action without meaning, meant to look visually impressive while not adding much to the story.  As s...
