    This issue was a lesson in perfect pacing. It is an anxiety spike in paper form.

    X-Force #43 is a stable push towards Colossus’ ongoing struggle to meet its conclusion finally. Ultimately this issue doesn’t offer much outside of the setup with the cliffhanger, but it continues to handle the team dynamic well, giving each member a moment to shine.

    Despite featuring many of the story elements central to the Krakoa era, X-Force has always felt as though it is sidelined when events occur; such is the case in X-Force #43. In the wake of a time-traveling caper and Hellfire Gala 2023, the issue must address both the ramifications of Quentin Quire’s return, the team’s role in the massacre, and its own ongoing revelations. The result is an issue featuring plenty of significant moments that often feel like bookkeeping long after the events addressed were genuinely shocking. Each facet is interesting unto itself and readers personally invested in these characters will appreciate the long-anticipated plot developments. However, much of what occurs in these pages is already known and new twists are held for X-Force #44 after a cliffhanger introduces one new turn. X-Force is posed to play a central role in resisting Orchis and readers will anticipate learning what that is when the story is able to advance past July’s releases next month.

    If you couldn’t tell, I’m ready for this Colossus storyline to be wrapped up and hopefully it will all end with the no-fun Piotr far, far away from this title. This was my least favorite Fall of X issue so far and it all has to do with the focus on this story that feels like it’s beating a dead horse now.
