Two separate limited series are collected here and neither is very good. The first, starring the Uncanny X-Force, has next to nothing to do with the actual crossover its supposed to be a part of. This story could have taken place at any time and the Fear Itself story played almost no part in it. The team, who I really enjoy, were in character here but Simone Bianchi's art is, as usual, depressingly overdone and muddled. Added to that, the coloring was so muted that the art was actually hard to make out what was happening panel to panel. The second story was directly related to Fear Itself but sadly pretty generic. A hodge-podge of heroes battle Attuma's forces and are terribly over-matched. Then, throw in a couple McGuffins and the heroes win. Bland plot and forced dialogue. The art by Lee Garbett was pretty good and has potential. Overall, a pointless collection that can be skipped.
