Official Press Release

"X-Force" #5 second printing cover

A villain civil war has erupted, a horseman of Apocalypse has returned and everyone's favorite mutant dark-ops team is struggling to keep the lid on. Marvel is pleased announce that X-Force #5 has sold out at Diamond (although copies may still be available at a retail level). Everyone is clamoring for more Archangel, and to satisfy overwhelming demand Marvel will be going back to print with X-Force #5 Second Printing Variant. This issue will also feature a stunning cover by superstar artist Clayton Crain.

The return of Archangel has everybody talking! Steven Bari of Comicsbulletin.com raves "I'm excited by the direction of the series and willing to accept Archangel as both the writers and artist have skillfully constructed a violent and disturbing tale worthy of his return."

Bastion has complete control of Stryker and his Purifiers. It's up to Risman to use his army of Archangel wannabes to take control back from robotic menace. Also, Warren isn't playing nice anymore and he's got both Stryker and Risman in his sights. Can the X-Force team of Wolverine, X-23, and Warpath put an end to it all? Find out the answers to these questions and more as X-Force #5 Second Printing Variant hits store shelves!
