Preview: UNCANNY X-FORCE #17 - "Vendetta"

Stryfe returns to X-Force this January.

At the end of January, things are about to get crazy in UNCANNY X-FORCE. Past X-Force fans will easily recognize the guy on the cover of issue #17, but it's been a little while since anyone has seen him. Here's a preview to wet your collective whistles.

UNCANNY X-FORCE #17

This January, Vendetta reaches its epic conclusion in the pages of UNCANNY X-FORCE #17 – from blockbuster writer Sam Humphries and red-hot artists Harvey Tolibao and Dexter Soy! Classic X-Force villain STRYFE has returned and is determined to exact his revenge upon Cable…by taking from him what he holds most dear: his daughter, Hope! But rather than killing Hope, Stryfe plans to corrupt her. He’s put Bishop—the man who relentlessly hunted her across time—in Hope’s crosshairs…and the means to end him in her hands. Will Stryfe get his revenge by enabling Hope to get hers? One thing’s for sure: after this, X-Force will never be the same. Don’t miss the senses-shattering conclusion to “Vendetta” this January in UNCANNY X-FORCE #17!

@jonny_anonymous: Which artist? I thought at least the panel layout on the second two pages was cool.

Only the first page isn't from him.Everything else is from him and that is why it sucks.He is a really bad artist.

Might be me, but Uncanny X-Force never really interested me (the new Marvel NOW version that is).

Is Stryfe a skeleton now? I really haven't paid attention to him since maybe the 90's/early 00's.

Gosh, the art is horrible. I'll buy it anyway for Domino and my boy Colossus.

Next month the art gets 10x better and it relaunches. Rakim is SO much better than this filler guy

Listen, he seems like a real nice guy, but he destroys everything he touches. Most notably Ultimate Comics: Ultimates taking over from Hickman with all the momentum in the world. He's just too damn weird for me. I could deal with his writing in Uncanny X-Force for barely longer than the first arc. Shortly after Garney left, so did I.

i like the art, dont see what people are complaining about. now jock, that's some terrible art, unless you like all that dark crap.

looking forward to this crossover. i think it will be fun and interested to see where this takes the individual players in the future. also how in the world there all those dr. nemesises (nemesai?) clones per-chance

I just don't understand why this series never got a steady artist. Alphona was a great, long-running guest artist, but there was no anchor. I think that hurt the series a bit despite how cool it has been.

Hell yeah! I was SO FCKING PISSED when all of a sudden Hickman and Ribic disappeared after issue 9 of the relaunch of the Ultimates series, and the both the writing and the art (to be fair, Luke Ross is a really good artist, but he was replacing Ribic and few artists' work DON'T look like shit in comparison after Ribic has spoiled you for 5+ issues) turned into complete shit. And the conclusion....good lord....

Are you crazy? Of course not!

It was clearly an epileptic walrus.
