First? 
 
Edit: No quest? Guess that is just Giantbomb. 
 
Anyway I am really going to look forward to the new X-force. I'm going to enjoy seeing Fantomex and Deadpool on the same team.

I still hate that they're going to change it to "Uncanny X-Force"...

I enjoyed the sex and violence as well but can't WAIT SEE FANTOMEX IN ACTION!!!!

"Who doesn't like sex and violence at the same time?" 
 
How 'bout anyone who has ever been sexually assaulted?  Maybe?

Great review guys. I've gotta read this, I like what I've read so far. Love seeing some Wolverine rage.
 
By the way, you guys better be doing an Unscripted Review: Thor #615 later this month!

Seemed like this was a cool little series.  It's always cool to see Wolverine let loose and get to actually cut dudes.

I would say it's boring and predictable to see Wolverine let loose and get to actually cut dudes, but that's me.  I read the second issue of this series and thought it was horrible.  I hate what this X-Force team has done with Wolverine; I hate what the last ten to fifteen years of writers have done with him. 
 
Wolverine used to strive for peace.  He didn't want to be a berserk killer, a living weapon.  That's why he always stayed with the X-Men, because they brought out his better angels.  That actually made him a redemptive hero.  Now, not so much.  He's just a killer.  And by "covertly sanctioning" this trend, Franction, Kyle and Yost have really ruined Cyclops' character, too.

I just read this before leaving for work and must say I enjoyed all three issues quite a bit. Unfortunately it just makes it that much harder to wait for the new X-Force. 
edit: Am I the only person having trouble with the HD? it won't load.

It really could have been utterly epic with 2 more comics.  I get budgetary constraints...and contracts. but god damn as a story it needed more.  I really ate up every page of this book, but would have adored a bit more.  And I really wouldn't mind a bridge either.

Wow, I thought I was the only one who felt that way. It definitely explains why Professor X is useless in the current X-series.

Wolverine with guns?!!!! 
SEX...........AND VIOLENCE?!!!!!

why havn't I heard about this comic series before?!

I need to do more comic book research.

This is all about the artwork for me which is awesome. The storyline is pretty weak and nothing special happens.

Malefactor :P

I haven't really got to check out x-force all that much but I'm strongly considering it!!!

Hmm... So much to buy.

Domino at the end was so messed up
Posted by Gennadius

I wished Sex and Voilence had like a 100 more issue's to go (with the same artist) 
And I like wolverine more in a savage/bestial way then being a coward and wanting to find peace.

It's character progression, they can't stay exactly the same as they were when they were conceived no one does.
 i thought of him as tired and boring before but I love cyclops' progression and adaptation into a decisive  leader, it really gives legitimacy to cable's natural leadership skills, like father like son.
 
 and wolverine knows what's gotta be done and takes on the death with i feel a heavy conscience but it is a noble act in that he takes it upon himself rather than more innocent people, that's been his struggle the entire storyline and i think it an intelligent take at something that could have been easily dumbed down if they wanted to

I agree with everything you said.  I really like the direction they're taking wolverine.  It's not that he wants to be a beserk killer, but that he sees how vital it is for someone to make the tough decisions.  In fact, Logan is quite the selfless character in this regard, taking it upon himself to do what's necessary instead of corrupting others and turning them into killers.

Last Hero Standing was only 5 issues, and they put it out as a trade.  Not with a hard cover, soft cover only I think.
But they could do the same with this comic.

There's a legal kind...?
Posted by Grimoire

I'm a fan of this 3 issue arc. Read all three and would agree that overall its a 5.
 
I wonder if Domino will stay in there with Wolverine as the last page would lead you to believe. Also didn't think they would have that as an ending. lol

Posted by MrMazz

I can't wait to pick this up

did he say belladonna? 
 
thats a pornstar lol

@Bandito: yes, it's called kinky sex...whether you believe it or not it is true
Posted by DH69

god i wish this was longer

Posted by -Vigil-

I prefer my comics WITHOUT sex or (extreme) violence, so the title of this comic might as well be "Vigil, don't read this. you won't like it."

Posted by thatlad

I loved this issue, don't really agree with the solution being convenient because if they hadn't got involved then we'd have all been poking holes aasking why they hadn't got involved. It fits the characters   
 
Great issue this whole arc 5/5

    Marvel themselves have ruined Wolverine. He went from being one of the best characters ever, to an over-hyped, over-used annoyance.

Really digging the look of this series. I'll try and pick this up in TBP.
