The material makeup of MAN-SLAUGHTER has been used to infect and control an army of unwilling agents! Can X-FORCE get to the root of the problem before DR. BLOODROOT kills again?
You Don't Read ComicsX-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 FancastThe 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 DispatchOverall, 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.
AIPTOverall, 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.
ComicBook.comX-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 GatheringOverall, 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.
