Meghan's Pick of the Month

Uncanny X-Force: The Apocalypse Solution

Wolverine promised Cyclops that X-Force would disband. He lied. A secret society has resurrected En Sabah Nur, putting into motion events that will turn this age of heroes into an Age of Apocalypse! To hold them back, Wolverine and Archangel bring together Fantomex, Deadpool and Psylocke to form the Uncanny X-Force! Stained by their history, they are the only ones capable of making the hard resolutions necessary. A band of likeminded friends and mercenaries set to one purpose, one big ugly task: kill Apocalypse by any means.

Spot on characterization and stunning art make this a book that shouldn’t be passed up. The storyline is solid, but it’s the banter between Wolverine and his team that really makes this book shine. Also, Deadpool is a riot throughout.
