    You Don't Read Comics

    X-Force #22 is another excellent issue of this book. Percy is doing something exciting with his storytelling in this book, and the last two chapters show why it works so well. This issue is generally a great read, but it introduces new factors to the battle between XENO and X-Force that could play into the future. The art team of Gill and GURU-eFX kill it on this issue, making it look great. X-Force is a solid book, and this issue is another example of why.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Percy does a great job of giving this story a beginning, middle and end that is both fast paced and poignant at times. The plot works really well. The characters are used well and the antagonist is compelling both in his motivations and plot. The Art: Robert Gill delivers some great art. There are some beautiful details throughout and the action is visually appealing.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Overall, X-FORCE #22 takes root with just enough action and excitement to captivate readers and conclude the arc naturally. Moreover, Percy continues to provoke Beast in directions that see a darker and more eccentric persona that may soon see the character completely transform like never before. Underneath the surface, some things are not right with Beast… and that’s good news for the character and his depth. He’s been steady and straight-laced for too long. Additionally, I loved the in-depth analysis of the prose pages and log entries, as well as the connection to “The Green” that Percy elevates throughout the issue. This wasn’t the best X-FORCE arc by any stretch but it was still a solid story that held his reviewer’s attention. If you’re an X-FORCE fan, this is right up your alley. SWAMP THING fans looking for a parallel at Marvel, may also enjoy this issue, as well as this arc.

    AIPT

    Overall, X-Force #22 is a nice final issue to a mini-story arc that plays around with plant-based enemies. It may hold a rather simplistic plot device, but Percy is good at littering his stories with interesting personalities and colorful moments.

    X-Force #22 is a return to form as it delivers a compelling villainous arc in a single issue and embeds that in a story in which there are obvious bad guys, but no one looks particularly good. Who would have thought espionage and salad blended so well?

    Multiversity Comics

    "X-Force" #22 is a creepy look into a dark mirror of a Swamp Thing-style character interpreted through the world of X-Men.

    Comics: The Gathering

    Overall, this was a fun book that gives us a look into more of Xeno’s plans. They continue to be a threat manipulating others to do their bidding. While nothing major comes out of this book. Some alliances are made that could benefit Krakoa in the future.

About the Author: Benjamin Percy

Benjamin Percy is an American author of novels and short stories, essayist, comic book writer, and screenwriter.

Career

Benjamin Percy has published four novels, The Dark Net, The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding, as well as two books of short fiction: Refresh, Refresh and The Language of Elk. In 2016, he published his first book of non-fiction, a collection of essays on writing and genre fiction: Thrill Me.

Percy’s first work for DC Comics was writing Detective Comics #35 – 36 in 2014, which was part of the company’s New 52 branding. He eventually took over as writer on the company’s Green Arrow series, beginning with issue 41, and continuing until issue 52, when that series was cancelled in preparation for DC’s 2016 DC Rebirth initiative, which involved restarting its monthly titles with new #1 issues. Percy would continue as writer on Green Arrow with its new series in 2016, beginning with the one-shot Green Arrow: Rebirth, which sold over 90,000 copies when it was released in May 2016. It was the highest-selling issue with Green Arrow as the main character in recent comics history, and received a second-printing. In comparison, the final issues of the previous Green Arrow series sold between 21,000 and 22,000 copies, the last Green Arrow #1, from the New 52 launch, sold 55,512 copies, and Kevin Smith‘s Green Arrow #1 from 2001 sold 85,046 copies.

From November 2019 Percy is the main writer of X-Force series and from February 2020 of Wolverine series for Marvel Comics.
