Uncanny X-Force #15 Review

GLX reviews Uncanny X-Force #15.




Writer - Rick Remender
Artist - Jerome Opena
Colorist - Dean White

"He has a beautiful dream. He will bring about a healthy world where we will be shepherds and kings."

I've written about Uncanny X-Force on several occasions, yet I seem to find myself writing about another issue of the series. With Uncanny X-Force #15, Rick Remender and Jerome Opena deliver a quality product that fans have come to expect for over a year.

If I had to put my finger on what makes this issue work so well, I'd say it's Remender's handling of various plot threads. Archangel and his group's plans move along nicely, while what remains of X-Force fights against the odds. The real star of the comic is Deathlok. Before reading this issue, I'd have likely said that Fantomex would be the star of the show; however, Remender plausibly changes Deathlok's personality which is a fresh change of pace from the way that he's typically been portrayed in the series.

Opena's work is as strong as his previous outings on the comic. It's rough, detailed and expressive. Dean White's colors give Opena's art a lush, yet otherwordly, vibe. Could a different colorist do a better job than White? Perhaps, but White's colors define the comic in the same way that Christina Strain's work on Runaways made her an essential part of that title.

It's pretty obvious to longtime fans of comic books that things will "work out" for the good guys. While that may be the case, the latest issue of Uncanny X-Force does a great job of not only making that outcome seem unlikely, but it also demands the audience's attention. Another winner for Remender and company.

8* out of 10*
