* * * PERSONAL OVERVIEW * * * * * * * * * *

You should only buy this book for one (or more) of the following reasons:

- Nostalgia.
- Completism.
- Pop Culture study.

This is NOT a well-written book. This is NOT a well-illustrated book either. It's a trainwreck, it's a son of its tumultuous times. Times full of gigantic guns, ridiculously complex uniform designs, gritting teeth, badly exaggerated anatomy and awkard positions. It's Rob Liefeld in all of his infamous power and glory.

If all you want is to read a good bunch of comics I urge you to stay the hell AWAY of this Omnibus: go buy other titles of the line like New X-Men, X-Statix or even The Age Of Apocalypse. Or get Vertigo books like Y: The Last Man, Fables or Preacher. Believe me, X-Force is not what you are looking for.

However, if you've read this comics when you were a kid or a teen and you treasure them as nostalgia artifacts, by all means buy this book, this is probably the best presentation this comics will ever be available in. Let this be a homage to your childhood or adolescence, embrace it!

Or if you are an X-Men completist, also get this book. This Omnibus fills the gap between the X-Tinction Agenda and the X-Cutioner's Song hardcovers. This book includes the first appearances of Deadpool, as well as Shatterstar. It heavily deals with the Cable/Stryfe storyline, serving as prelude to X-Cutioner's Song. The contents of this Omnibus read in parallel with the X-Men by Claremont & Lee Omnibus Vol. 2 and the X-Men: Bishop's Crossing hardcovers. If you want to go even further, you can get the X-Force: Cable & The New Mutants HC, it collects the previous New Mutants issues by Liefeld that introduced Cable for the very first time.

The X-Force Omnibus (vol 1) gives readers another massive high-quality collection of some of Marvel's historic comic book runs. The issues collected here were originally published in 1991 & 1992. At 800 pages of comics plus loads of extras, this book offers hours of reading in a format that looks beautiful on a shelf. The sewn binding will also hold up to regular reading much better than the comics ever did.

The New Mutants become a militant strike force under Cable's guidance in these issues, but very few of the original New Mutants were still around by the time X-Force kicked off. In addition to Cable, the other main characters include Sunspot, Boom Boom, Cannonball, Domino, Feral, Shatterstar, Warpath, Siryn, and Rictor. Many of these characters play key roles in current X-titles, and readers looking for more back story about their favorite characters will find much enjoyment here.

Some highlights include, the first appearances of Deadpool & Shatterstar, both of whom have developed in many ways since these early issues.

I just received my copy of the X-Force omnibus and all i have to say is wow!! Regardless of how you feel about Nicieza's stories or Liefeld's art, this is an astoundingly gorgeous collection!! From the cover, to the paper stock, to the meticulous care taken in restoring and vastly enhancing the original artwork i am extremely impressed! I own several Marvel Omnibus collections and i must say this is the best one yet in regards to quality reproduction and presentation! As far as the material, its classic 90's Marvel Mutant madness!! I love these stories!! They remind me of my youth and of the mighty marvel 90's!! That said, i would strongly recommend this collection to fans of any age!! This was Nicieza at his peak!! Even Liefeld's over the top art has its charm, and this collection by far and away showcases his best work!! In short, you cannot go wrong with these classic stories!! Throw in a beautiful/high quality Omnibus presentation to boot and this is simply a MUST OWN!!

Rob Liefeld remains one of the WORST artists to EVER work at Marvel. And his writing is AWFUL. He represents all the worst of 90s comics.

However, if you don't mind men with extremely high, thick waists, costumes with dozens of pockets, half-baked characters conceived out of cynicism, and terrible dialogue then, sure, you might like this.

The majority of the comic world hates on Rob Liefeld but I am actually a big fan of this X-Force series. It's like the X-Men without Professor X telling them they can't kill people. Much more adult than the X-Men stories of the same time because Cable (the leader of X-Force) allows his cohorts to kill their enemies. There are some head turning moments in the series and it'll keep your attention for the most part.
