X-Force, Volume 2: Final Chapter Reviews

    Further comedic exposition of the celebritization of the superhero genre. The heroes become self entangled ego driven media whores of the Hollywood idol culture, making heroics a secondary motivation. These heroes are dying to be in the spotlight; literally.

    Broche de oro para una de las mejores series de comic estadounidenses que haya leído. Los tópicos de los tomos anteriores llevados al extremo y un final/nuevo comienzo que quita el aliento. No sé si era necesario el cambio de cabecera, ya que la historia siguió en X-Statix, pero está perfectamente integrado a la historia, y el cambio se ve natural, fluye sin problemas de uno al otro. Además, hay un muy buen uso de varios tropos tales como el "lampshading", el "reboot", el "they changed it, now it sucks!" y otros recursos narrativosmodernos y no tanto: Milligan y el matrimonio Allred siguen dando cátedra de cómo no caer en el lugar común, de cómo dar vueltas las cosas y cagarse en el status quo para hacerle lugar a ideas frescas que contrastaban con la sequía anterior de la serie X-Force, y de lo que era la Marvel de los 90s.Lástima que se va ese personaje que me caía cada vez mejor, pero teniendo en cuenta las sub-tramas que abre su muerte, está perdonado y hasta justificado. Larga vida a... (no pongo nombre para no tener que marcar la review como spoiler)

    Well, it looks like the X-Force name is copyrighted and the team needs to think of a new name!A specter of Death has risen from the grave, maggoty and pointing at the three core members!Who the hell is Lacuna and will she pop up as the team's newest member?!What's up with Doop's crazy psychedelic pimple?! Who will die next?!Exploring media attention, homosexuality, how to disappoint your parents, and death, this trade paperback is a punch! I thought the bit with Doop's pimple was pretty wild. (Who or what the hell is Doop anyways? He is barely mentioned in X-Force, but he is in almost EVERY page!) Lacuna sparkles as a hero wannabe turned celebrity media voyeur. Somebody dies, and everyone hurts, though most won't admit it.And... the team finds a new name!

    As I go through this chronological X-read, there aren't too many titles that make me wish that I had been reading them at the time that they were initially being released as single issues. This series, though... I'm really disappointed that I missed out on it until now. I liked the first volume, but absolutely loved this one. A great story with a whole lot to say politically and socially. Still not my favorite art, but it works for this series.One thing that I do find odd between this and Morrison's X-Men is the odd jump in mutant population. Just a year or so earlier in the Marvel universe, it was still rare to be a mutant but now there are literally millions of them everywhere. Since it is in both titles, I assume it was something decided higher up but it seems odd to me. Read this series, though, if you haven't yet. It is definitely worth it.

    Lacuna (121-122). Huh. Two issues spent on recruiting that's not even successful There's some fun discussion of race and genre tropes here, but this doesn't have the strength of the early issues [7+/10].'Nuff Said (123). I've never been impressed by Marvel's no-words month. This came off better than most because of Allred's artwork, but beyond that it's totally skippable [6/10].Edie & Guy (124). Some nice background on Edie, but after this I was happy to get back to "bigger" stories [7/10].Space (125-129). This was the story that reminded us that no one was safe, and it was a great reminder that this X-Force wasn't a typical superhero comic. Beyond that, we get great media manipulations and a fun storyline [7+/10]

    Reprints X-Force #121-129. X-Force looks for new members as the team continues to die and learn that they might not be able to be X-Force for much longer. Milligan and Allred continue their genius lampoon of X-Books with over-the-top characters with over-the-top attitudes. Allred's art is great but there is a nice guest issue from Darwyn Cooke and a less than impressive guest artist of Duncan Fegredo. The story is a little less punchy than the first collection, but still has a lot of fun telling itself. It also contains one of the better Marvel "'Nuff Said" issues (the month where all the issues had no written dialogue) involving Doop and the writing script for it to explain what is going on.

    Basically readable but a bit too weird. And I don't want to read reality tv in my comics anymore than I want to watch it on tv. Actually the characters and situation are kind of interesting. But it is all basically pointless. Except for the pages where we were inside Doop which was just plain stupid. It could have been a lot worse.

    This read closer to a traditional story arc feel, but perhaps was less novel because of it. It did have me laughing out loud on several occasions (just ask Emily). It's too bad about the two guest art issues because Allred's style is impossible to emulate and losing it just makes the whole book seem tonally off.

    A refreshing twist on an X-Men title. Could have used some better editing, but I liked the focus on the media, race issues, sexuality, and the overall quirkiness of the characters. Especially enjoyed the silent issue. Very creative and weird.

    I love everything Marvel. The storylines are incredible! They have everything you could want: action, adventure, comedy, romance, political intrigue, allegories, metaphors, etc. Some stories drag, some end too soon.

    Milligan sabe cómo nadie alargar la trama de cuál de los miembros originales de Fuerza-X va a morir, con una historia absurda ambientada en el espacio, enemigos imposibles, un nuevo personaje (Dead Girl) cargado de fuerza... ¡Uno de los mejores cómics que he leído en lo que va de año!

    Really a lot better than I remembered! Had to up my rating from 3 stars.

    Allred/Milligan 2012. Truth in comics. Truth in life.

    Uhh, see review for New Beginnings. Bonus Baby Boomer/Gen X conflicts and comic book script in the back!
