The Press Release:
On this day 30 years ago, X-FORCE #1 debuted and took the comic book industry by storm! Created by Rob Liefeld, X-FORCE #1 was a blockbuster success, selling over 5 million copies to become one of the best-selling single issues in Marvel Comics history. Commemorating the anniversary of this groundbreaking issue, Rob Liefeld will return to the X-Force saga this November with a new chapter in X-FORCE: KILLSHOT!
The special one-shot will feature an explosive adventure starring Cable and his mighty militant mutant squad, taking readers back to the beloved 90s heyday of the X-Men franchise. Cable and his counterparts will assemble five separate X-Force squadrons – from various points in time – to converge on Asteroid S for an all-out assault to defeat Stryfe once and for all.
“X-Force was a huge gamble that paid off big for Marvel, paid off big for retailers and it changed my life forever.” Liefeld states, reflecting on the impact and legacy of the title. “I’m thrilled and honored to share Killshot with everyone. Thirty years in the making, I intend to make every page a huge kick for fans new and old.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Ahhh “X-Force” #1, I remember it well and this was when the crazy collectors bought multiple copies. That issue sold a lot because there were five different trading cards included in the debut and if you wanted them all you needed to purchase five copies. Since this is a single issue special edition I will most definitely be adding it to my pull list. It will be great to have Liefeld back on a group of characters that he did so much with. What do you readers think about this announcement? Will you be purchasing? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. Stay safe out there.
