You Don't Read ComicsX-Force #35 is a fantastic comic. Percy does an excellent job of juxtaposing Beast and Sage and how they’ve dealt with their jobs. It’ll be intriguing to see where the book goes from here. Allen and Lopez’s art is alright. It’s not bad, but it’s not great either. However, this is still a really good comic.
AIPTX-Force #35 is a good prison break story interwoven with a deeply meaningful story of addiction and a character wrestling with guilt and shame. You get the character bits and the action while progressing key character plots in an X-Men line that's as good as ever.
The Comicbook DispatchX-Force #35 takes two promising storylines with both Beast and Sage, wraps them up together, and quickly spits them out the other side. Both story arcs were literally oozing potential after X-Force #34 only to have Percy race through them both to possibly move on to another arc. There was so much more we could have dug into with Beast as a villain. There was so much emotion attached to Sages alcoholism that seems flushed away. However, theyve both been brushed aside for what? Readers need to be prepared for surface-level content mixed with emotionless action thats incredibly flat in this weeks X-Force #35 which is so disappointing considering loads of potential dripping from last month's issue.
ComicBook.comX-Force #35 frames the conflict between the team and Beast in the open for the first time and promises a fascinating and ugly conflict ahead.
Comic Book RevolutionX-Force #9 is a quick-paced read. Percy offers up plenty of good action. The focus of this issue is more on the adventure side of things than the character side of things. Still, Percy does solid character work. Percy does a good job with Domino and Sage. The reader gets a good feel for Domino’s support for Sage in her battle with alcohol addiction. The reader also gets a good sense of the conflict raging inside Sage over her addiction to alcohol. It is obvious that Sage hates herself and is battling with personal demons.
