Non male anche questo numero, abbastanza semplice, ma anche qua non manca qualche colpo di scena dark, vedi il finale con Domino.
Bello rivedere Quentin, Logan è un badass con Percy e le matite erano buone.

X-Force #3
Written by Benjamin Percy
Art by Josh Cassara and Guru e-FX
Lettering by Joe Caramagna
Published by Marvel
Review by Pierce Lydon
'Rama Rating: 6 out of 10

X-Force #3 walks back that big thing from issue #1 that we knew wouldn't stick, but it does some good work in establishing what the team is and why its existence is necessary. A lot of the buzzwords that writer Benjamin Percy threw around in the lead-up to the book like "deniable operations" rear their heads here, and the sense of unease and restlessness in the mutant ranks has become more apparent. Artist Josh Cassara continues his good work on the series, offering up almost a smoky counterpoint Rod Reis' work on New Mutants. This is a team that's going to get their hands dirty, that much is clear.

Wolverine and Quentin Quire continue their rescue of Domino, while Jean Grey and Beast work to bring Professor X back to life in this issue. Percy is able to use both storylines as opportunities to ask questions about this new mutant society - why should humanity trust mutants more now that they have their own country? How can humans trust that mutants (especially Professor X) even are who they say they are? And just how safe are mutants on Krakoa? These are great questions to consider, and had Percy been able to speed up the action in the first couple of issues, they would have made X-Force a more immediately gripping read.

Percy's dialogue comes through a bit clunkier than we've seen some of these characters in other books. I don't think that's because Percy is a bad writer. I just think that we have so many looks at these characters in less grim settings that the second they start talking about Krakoan defenses and the role of X-Force, the dialogue starts to feel like the linguistic equivalent of a kid wearing their dad's suit. The pacing suffers for that as well. Through three issues, the plotting feels extremely slow, almost as if Percy needs to bide his time for other elements of the world to be established elsewhere in the line before he can fully dive in. (As evidenced from all of the other books kind of just paying lip service to the events of X-Force to this point.)

But I do like Cassara's approach a lot. He does a great job with his character expressions and body language. He's able to switch from the tense drama of certain settings, to out and out horror and then flip over to action set pieces without feeling forced. His art is a great guide for the story and the visuals tell us so much that I wish Percy would get on with the set up. I have a hunch that future "missions" in this book with this creative team will sing due to the stealthy nature of the team. Tagging in after Dean White's first two issues, Guru-eFX brings a great level of grime to the dark underbelly of the X-Books. I am so thankful that this series changes up the visual style from the more traditional work that we see in books like Marauders and X-Men that are much more forward-facing than this book.

X-Force is intriguing. It doesn't feel like it's fully out of the starting gate just yet, but it is gaining steam amongst the Dawn of X books because it's able to consistently deliver on working toward its premise. Consistency is a major key to monthly superhero comic books. Percy and Cassara are a team that feels united in their vision and approach to this book. X-Force is carving out its dark little niche in the Krakoan corner of the Marvel Universe and fans of mysterious, espionage-adjacent storytelling and going to want to check in on this one.

Buona testata, migliore di New Mutants e Fallen Angels che ho tagliato, ma comunque ben lontana dal farmi strappare i capelli.
Diciamo che come lettura tamarra alternata alla testata principale va bene, ma per ora preferisco di gran lunga Marauders e Excalibur.
I disegni sono dignitosi e non di più.
Per ora si continua vista la trama intrigante.

Numero che arriva a formare la X-Force come la intendono in questo nuovo status quo, quindi poca roba perchè tanto si sapeva già quasi tutto.
Però la parte più interessante è legata a Logan.
Infatti avevo un dubbio riguardo la sua morte/rinascita e ora qua la questione legata

X-Force #5 (Published by Marvel Comics; Review by Justin Partridge; 'Rama Rating: 7 out of 10):

Forge, Domino, and Gateway take center stage in another gorily entertaining issue of X-Force. Cut off from the latest human incursion into a Krakoan facility, thanks to a gateway bomb that killed Kid Omega and cut Wolverine in two, our anti-heroes function as the cavalry, attempting to reunite Logan's halves and find more intel on the human soldiers attacking them. Though the plot is fairly simple, writer Ben Percy really started to delve into the darkness and ruthlessness of this team, centered around Domino who is looking for some major payback in response to being used as the human's puppet in the opening issues. Art team Joshua Cassara and Dean White also lean heavily into the more MAX-esque visuals of the title, centering a few ghoulish gags on the severed torso of Wolverine and dominating the pages with Forge's bio-tech armor teased on the cover. X-Force #5 might be the bloodiest offering from the title so far, but it seems Percy and the rest of the creative team have a method behind the bloodshed.

X-Force #6 (Published by Marvel Comics; Review by Matthew Sibley; 'Rama Rating: 7 out of 10):

Anchored by a monologue from Beast, X-Force continues its dive into the murky business of Krakoa's Counter-Intelligence Agency. Having established the operation's existence with its opening story - a factor which becomes recontextualized here by a killer data page - Benjamin Percy refines the series' focus with each passing issue. Terra Verde's president has agreed to sign with the mutants until the ceremony goes horribly wrong, and X-Force must be quick to ensure the deal remains intact. Stephen Segovia and Guru eFX handle the art, and it can unfortunately be said that it's a step down from previous issues. How they handle Beast through the issue is strong - most notable is how they depict his domineering handle on the situation through imposing, lower-angle perspectives - though Percy's script doesn't operate in the high-octane manner of previous issues. (There's no opportunity for an image as striking as the Wolverine torso of #5, for example.) This team makes up for it increased political intrigue akin to the John Ostrander and Kim Yale Suicide Squad, showing just how volatile this operation is going to become.
