So who is reading Milligan/Allred's X-FORCE. This title, is without a doubt, one of the best Marvel titles out there. I recently purchased the TPB (issues #116-20) and was immediatly hooked. I bought issues #121 and #122 the very next day. This book is a great satire which stands above the rest of some of Marvel's other stuff. So - comments?
I'm really enjoying this book. I have since the first issue. I still can't believe that first issue ended like it did. I convinced myself it was a dream sequence, but the next month - nope, it all happened.
I think that's why I like this book; anything can, and usually does, happen. In most monthlies, we know the heroes will be fine. We know everything's gonna be alright. But here, a hero could die with the turn of a page. I like that element of surprise in my comics.
I'm guessing that Edie will be the next member to bite it. I dunno why, but I think she's a likely target. I really like the unpredictability of the title. Plus - this X-Force isn't really a team - but almost a manufactured boy band type group.. Kinda like the group that got blown up in issue #116. The team has made this title from an X-Men clone intoa highly original, sharp book.
So different from anything "X" that's ever been done that it's continuously interesting just to witness.
