Uncanny X-Force_18

I’ve always liked the Angel, but in four pages Rick Remender, Jerome Opena and Dean White made me love him…

March 27, 2013 12:51 pm I've got a homemade Captain America helmet that I rock when I go mountain biking, and I'm always wearing comic book related t-shirts from we love fine when I ride.
November 27, 2012 8:17 am They are putting it out, it comes out on Wednesday ;)
November 27, 2012 8:16 am I'm with Heisenberg on this one. The first issue was great, with an insanely wonderful last issue setup for the series. Can't wait to check this issue out.
November 1, 2012 12:59 pm Wolverine & The X-Men. This series has made comics fun again, without giving up on wonderful emotional beats. Love everything about it.
August 7, 2012 8:53 am It's Clay Mann, the art isn't going to be pretty good. It's going to be excellent.
July 2, 2012 12:29 pm Agreed! She's the heart of the X-Men. They need her back.
May 16, 2012 10:03 pm This was the worst issue of Uncanny X-Men i've ever read. Seriously, what happened to the way Hepzibah speaks? and seriously when did it get established that the only thing that Namor talks about is sex. First the creepy back and forth with Hope from a few issues ago and now this. Knock it off Gillen. I've never seen such a 180 from a creator. Pre-Schism I loved Gillen's Uncanny, his post Uncanny work is garbage. Land's artwork only adds to the creepiness of the Hepzibah/Namor scenes. They need to both be removed from this book.
April 24, 2012 9:03 am I did and I liked it. It seems that a lot of artists are drawing him more ape like and I hope it sticks, I've never liked cat beast.
March 29, 2012 9:46 am It's disappointing to see that some stores are choosing to sell #1 early even though the packages are clearly marked that the street date isn't until the 3rd of April.
March 8, 2012 8:13 am I'm not big on talking bad about comics. I tend to stick with the "if I don't have anything nice to say..." but this series has been awful & this issue was it at it's worst. To try & start with some positivity, I enjoyed the scenes between Psylocke & Magneto, I enjoyed the tie in to the .1 issue of Uncanny X-Force & Magneto returning the favor. However, the way Namor was handled was awful & just felt completely out of character, and I wasn't a big fan of Hope's interactions with him, isn't she just a very young teen at this point. It all just came off creepy to me. Also, I'm not a hater of Land. I'm not running out to buy his original art, but I'm not busting down his door with a pitchfork either, but the art during the conversation between Namor & Hope was just bad. I enjoyed Gillen's Uncanny so much pre regenisis, but since the split this has not been doing it for me.
