To meet the overwhelming demand for this issue, Marvel is going back to press with X-Force #2 Second Printing Variant, featuring the stunning interior art of Clayton Crain

"It looks like X-Force really is unstoppable!" said editor John Barber. "It's been absolutely great seeing the reactions to all the X-books after Messiah CompleX. I couldn't be happier that X-Force has been winning over readers who were a little wary when the series was first announced. If you've been enjoying the first two issues, just wait till you see the next ones-issue three is incredible and issue four is one of the most powerful and intense comics I've ever read. The action and tension just keep ramping up on this series!"

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all issues of X-Force, as the series ties into the popular Divided We Stand storyline and continues to draw acclaim from all corners. With the return of another classic X-villain, the odds aren't looking good for the new X-Force! Don't miss the series that critics and fans agree is a must-read-X-Force!
