Uncanny X-Force #9 and #10 Solicits Revealed

Uncanny X-Force #9
Written by: Rick Remender
Penciled by: Billy Tan
Cover by: Esad Ribic
Magneto uncovers the existence of X-Force and the only way he'll keep the team's secret is if they assassinate a mysterious figure from his past! Who is so important that Magneto would employ such methodology? Why can't he do the deed himself? The answer is buried in a terrible secret from the ashes of World War II. No man can outrun his past forever...

Uncanny X-Force #10
Written by: Rick Remender
Penciled by: Billy Tan
Cover by: Esad Ribic
A reporter prepares to release photographs of X-Force killing military personnel leaving the squad with one of the hardest choice of their lives, how to deal with her? Nothing can prepare you for the ending, or the ramifications as X-Force are forced to unite with a former servant of Apocalypse! Ramping up tp one of the biggest chapters in X-history, and yes, you've heard it before- but nothing will ever be the same.

Thansk to Ziral at the CBR Forums. It looks like the Shadow King arc is just for one issue then.

Why God?, Why??

I know I must wait and see, but it's highly possible I won't be buying those issues.

I like Billy Tan's art, although I admit that he may be the weakest artist out of all the ones announced so far (Opeña, Ribic, Brooks). Still, it's better than Ramos or Land.

What really confused me is that it seems issues 9 and 10 (and 8, as our bloggers mentioned) will be single stories instead of parts of an arc. Which may be okay, it's nice to get a comic book issue that starts and finishes a story in itself sometimes, without requiring you to read other issues to understand the plot. But the thing is: since Remender mentioned that the first 17 issues are "a single big story divided into 5 chapters", does it mean that issues 8, 9 and 10 are one of these chapters? If so, I wonder how these three different missions (battle against Shadow King, Magneto's blackmail and dealing with the nosy reporter) could constitute a single chapter in unit...

Oh well, he'll probably manage it anyway. In Remender I trust.
