    A bomb this large requires a long, slow fuse. Expect no easy, black and white moralities here. Be prepared for pyrotechnic, nation-shaking explosions.

    You Don't Read Comics

    X-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.

    X-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 Dispatch

    X-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.

    X-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 Revolution

    X-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.

About the Author: Benjamin Percy

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


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.
