    6.5 out of 12... Interesting but somewhat implausible even for comics... Essentially Cable foresees disasters so has his X-Force act proactively and mostly illegally to save lives... in this case freeing a genocidal alien prisoner! Guest Abigail Brand and S.W.O.R.D.... as well as a surprise cameo by a key X-Man.

    Pretty good. It's a fun little adventure. Abigail Brand, like Maria Hill, is a strange character. Always aggressively asserting authority and then failing and getting bossed around by men with superpowers and then making unhappy faces. Well, I'm not sure if that's a character so much as an obstacle. But whatever. Pretty good. It's a fun little adventure. Abigail Brand, like Maria Hill, is a strange character.

    In general, this was a pretty fun volume of this rather grim series. There were some interesting moments, with Colossus having turned himself in, and Boom Boom showing up again (and I think she is a pretty good fit for the series), and the catastrophe they avert this time is of a different scope, which is rather interesting (I like that it is branching out beyond just mutant threats). The Cyclops came made a lot of sense, given his similar outlaw storyline at the time. There were parts that didn In general, this was a pretty fun volume of this rather grim series.

The Cyclops came made a lot of sense, given his similar outlaw storyline at the time. There were parts that didn't make sense to me, like the artist not knowing how to depict Havok's powers (which makes zero sense on any kind of X-book), and some weird characterization of Doctor Nemesis, who, being time-displaced, should not be making pop culture references. While those issues were notable, they didn't keep me from enjoying this storyline.

    While not quite as good as the previous volume, there is still plenty to like about this short story. Peter acts as the moral compass for the group and tries to atone for previous mistakes whereas his connection to the team makes that complicated. The main conflict revolves around an unusual prisoner who is dark for the Marvel universe and this takes X-Force to a completely different environment. It was nice to see Agent Brand who always reminds me of my favorite X-Men series Astonishing X-Men e While not quite as good as the previous volume, there is still plenty to like about this short story.

It was nice to see Agent Brand who always reminds me of my favorite X-Men series Astonishing X-Men even if she basically is exactly the same as how she acts in that book. The art continues to be fairly strong and while I don't know where is book is going next, I'd still say it is a bit above average and certainly unique among Marvel superhero titles.

    Continuing the great X-read of 2017/18... I find myself a little confused about how I feel regarding this book. Everything about it seems tailor made for me to love it: A bunch of my favorite characters (Domino, Cable, Boom Boom(!)…) but while I find myself enjoying it, I feel like it is a little bland. Like all of the pieces don't quite fit together. It's good enough that I want to keep reading but so far it isn't one of the series that has me impatient to get to the next volume.

    This series has all the ingredients to succeed but just can't put them all together. Colossus wanted to atone is a great idea but how its handled is incredibly weak. The space alien storyline was an unfortunate misfire. I just didn't matter. Editorially, the book ends with a to be continued which is absurd. Larroca's art is still good but not enough to help the book. Overall, a disappointment. This series has all the ingredients to succeed but just can't put them all together.

    I wish I could lump all of these Cable & X-Force trades together, because I feel the same about all of them....they're interesting comics, featuring a fascinating collection of some of the X-Men cast offs. Written well and beautifully drawn, they're an all too rare high point in Marvel's mutant books.

    Colossus hands himself in and goes to prison. The rest of X-Force have to break out an alien to save the world. This is a short but fun book. It's nice to see Colossus find some kind of peace, and Cyclops talks to Cable. The dynamics within the group are starting to gel. A good read. Colossus hands himself in and goes to prison.

    Same feelings on this as the first, except with Abigail Brand, who I can take or leave. Oh, and Boom Boom. Who, when not in Nextwave, I can definitely leave.

    MORE Cable stuff, and now some S.W.O.R.D., which is always good, gives me a feeling of 2000 AD. Anyways, ONWARDS!

    This is where this book really starts to come together. If you read my review of the previous trade, you will see where my opinions fall on each member of the team. This trade made me change my mind. After this book, I enjoy every character, From Colossus to the newly joined Boom Boom. This is where we really get the idea behind Cable's plans.

Cable has always been one of my favorite characters, even though a lot of people consider him a relic from the grim, 90s era of Super commandos. One of the best aspects of his character is his ability to create plans within plans, and always have a back up for each one. The middle part of this book is a heist of sorts, with each intricate point planned out by Cable, and matched with the strengths of each of the members of X-force. a Really great book. I am becoming more and more of a fan of Dennis Hopeless with each book of his that I read.

    X-force and cable vol. 2 picks up with the crew trying to rescue an alien before earth loses 6 million people. Dennis Hopeless is doing a great job with the series and I always love Larroca on art, so crisp and exact. Although the story isnt a home run, the smaller stories are pretty darn good with hope, colossus, and even cable. Colossus has turned him self in for the phoenix 5 and the factory disaster, this small part is really a huge character development.

Colossus might be the only x-men feeling remorse and I his love triangle with Kitty and Domino adds more to chew. Hope has a hand to play as well and it should be good in the next few issues. Im a sucker for x-force so I enjoyed it, besides the avengers/x-men cameos are fun too. The havok and Cap panels are a good bit of writing.

    Better than volume one, but once again I read this book about a team taking on the bad guys "by any means necessary" while reading a volume of the newest iteration of the Thunderbolts, and again the Thunderbolts take the prize. This volume feels stronger to me, although it's mostly dealing with the fall out of the first volume--as far as any character development is concerned. I hope they get past Peter being whiny and blaming himself for everything.

The issue that focused on Hope facing off with the Uncanny Avengers was great for all four characters involved. Just enough action and great character moments for everyone.

    The first volume was so promising and forward-moving, but this second one didn't deliver. Maybe because it was a lot of set-up, but I'm just not interested after the weird sexual alien art thing with Boom in Issue #7 (seriously, look back at it, it's so uncomfortable). After that, I was just annoyed. Domino is annoyed her booty call doesn't rect to her appearance, anything with Hope stopped making sense. (If the Avengers wanted Cable, why aren't they using her?

    An improvement upon something that was good to begin with. Glad to see the return of O.G. New Mutant/X-Force member Boom Boom and a continuation of giving these characters great interactions, especially those that place Cable/X-Force into a very clear context within the Marvel Universe. The lighter mood works without losing sight of Cable's character being a stern, focused leader/lifelong warrior. An improvement upon something that was good to begin with.

    Not a bad second volume, but not too outstanding either. The main story is devoid of characterization bar Colossus (and some fun quips from Doctor Nemesis), whilst the final issue has some great Hope lines, so it's all a bit uneven. Larocca's art is the same, sometimes looking beautiful and others looking ou of proportion or too obviously photo-traced. So overall not bad, but incconsistent.

    Another fine comic by Hopeless. This one has some fun action-adventure (in space!), but it also has great characterization — particularly of Peter, but also of Hope. All around, this feels like an interesting look into these peoples' lives [7/10]. Another fine comic by Hopeless.

    Still a readable comic, but not anywhere near what I wish it would be. I was always a big fan of Cable as a child, but I find that most of his comics have been either really hard to follow, or just unreadable.

    Nice short adventure book. Not high art, but pretty good. The characters in it ring true. The caper basically worked. And Hope's bit at the end was particularly nice. And Piotr and Kitty had there bit as well. And Cable wasn't at all horrible. Nice short adventure book. Not high art, but pretty good. The characters in it ring true. The caper basically worked.

    This artist can make ANYTHING look good! He is simply awesome! Good news is this is some fun writing with a good and solid feel for the characters, (with great interactions amidst some very fun and thrilling plotting, from Mr. Hopeless. (That is really his name, I guess...) Great stuff!

    Almost too fast to process. Man. It didn't strike me as quite as crazy as the first one, probably because it had much less Hope in it. Almost too fast to process. Man. It didn't strike me as quite as crazy as the first one, probably because it had much less Hope in it.
