Comic Book Review – X-Force #4
Writer: Simon Spurrier
Artist/Cover: Jorge Molina
This is the issue of X-Force I have been waiting for! I enjoyed bits of Uncanny X-Force and Cable and X-Force and have been on the fence so far about this new iteration of the All-New Marvel Now! X-Force. I was instantly engaged and really started to care about where the story is heading and what happens to this group of mutants. I think one of the best things that this book has going for it is the humor that is infused. It definitely fits well with the book and lightens the darker tone of the book being about a bunch of mercenary’s.
I think what I found most enjoyable about this issue was the amount of Fantomex. He is very fun to read and I like seeing more of the fallout of his identity split. I think this character is being put to good use. I am starting to like the team’s chemistry more, at first I was unsure of Marrow and I think MeMe will be fun once we get to see her more. Definitely looking forward to this book from here on out!
The artwork of this book is much better fit this time around! I felt that Jorge Molina’s artwork suits the book better than Rock-He Kim during the first three issues of the book. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the art on those three issues but it didn’t feel right at times. Molina’s art is great; I really enjoy anything he does. He is very consistent throughout the issue and I feel this helps the story.
Rating 6 (Out of 7): If you need more Fantomex in your life, look no further! This issue is a lot of fun and the artwork is fantastic!
