X-Force #1 (2019),
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT

THE HIGH PRICE OF A NEW DAWN! X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops. Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Dominon the other. In a perfect world, there would be nneed for an X-Force. We're not there…yet. Rated T+

X-Force looks to be the title where the mutants realize there is no such thing as paradise, that they are in danger, and that someone is always looking to write 'TOUCHABLE' in blood in an elevator over the corpse of Charles Martin Smith-Xavier.
Things that are good: It interacts with X-Men and Marauders as titles, it has darker, heavier inked art by Joshua Cassara that is reminiscent of Lenil Francis Yu on 'New Avengers', and it has great coloring that roots it in a world that is tolerable to look at unlike 'Excalibur'.
Shawn says 'New Mutants' is the second best X-ongoing. I'm going to assume he means this is the first.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
