X-FORCE 8


Did not buy it but there is a lot of praise for this issue online. For example with SPOILERS here:

The art looked okay - but the preivews and higher cover price didnt really pull me back:

Does X-men and/or X-Force know about this whole THE WORLD thing mentioned in the Recap Page? Or that another baby Apocalypse is there - does this negate the impact of Fantomex killing the arch foe? Also with the online solicit there are similar looking stasis-like tubes with X-men in them including Phoenix - uhh do readers know whats up with that? There is no 'body' for Magneto though [on next issue cover too] but just a [copy of?] his helmet. Was it a good handling of Fantomex? Any chance of the phony Frenchman getting the boot for harboring all this and a Nimrod too? Hope so - or else give HIM X-Force leadership and give back Logan and Angel.

Hmmm, remind me how/when Psylocke fared against Shadow King before? And do we learn Deathlok's previous chronological appearancce to this arc? Otherwise got the basics from this very informative and complimentary vid review:
