X-Force Vol. 1 Dirty/Tricks by Simon Spurrier (who? exactly.)

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Ugh. Anyone who has read Remender’s X-Force run? Do Not Read This. It’s lame. Who the fuck is Marrow? Is she on meds or some shit? Frankly I’d much rather Cable, Betsy or Fantomex. However, the art, I’m just not feeling it at all. Fantomex also just becomes a 1 dimensional dog trying to hump Betsy’s leg. He deserves far better. Cable is not at all interesting or appealing here. I only give it 2 instead of 1 because I might have missed stuff since I pretty much scanned the 2nd half of this…just not for me at all. I guess Remender spoiled me.

About Gavin

I'm a lover of pop-culture, from movies to music to books to TV shows to well...comics, and just about everything in between. I'm also a history buff, and spent 4 yrs getting a fancy BA in it. When I was at said University, I got my learn on AND spent all my money on CDs and VHS (yup, I'm THAT old.) However, I'm happy to discuss any topic really, as I love a good debate or just to be proven right. I'm Canadian, so I wear shorts and flip flops 9 months of the year, but no, I am NOT fanatical about hockey (I actually prefer baseball, thank my American father for that!). I love the outdoors, but don't get out enough... I've got a sick twisted sense of humour (hence why I'm friends with these Shallow folks) and believe that laughter is the best medicine...except penicillin...cause laughter won't cure the clap.

  1. I loved this. I actually enjoyed it right from the start – I enjoyed Marrow’s weird narration in the first issue, which most people seemed to hate. But I’ve loved this whole series. The first half of Remender’s UXF was deserving of people called a Saga (though the Age of Apocalypse arc was flat-out awful). But Spurrier’s X-Force blows the second half of Remender’s run out of the water. The book just gets even better once it becomes clear that it’s a deconstruction of the whole premise behind X-Force.

    • To each their own. I just didn’t care for it at all. Just a bunch of nonsense to me. I guess I just prefer Remender’s writing…I’ll have to try some other X-Force too and see if I have any other preferences.
