Read an exclusive preview of Uncanny X-Force, one of the best X-Men comics out there

All this week, we've been gearing up for the conclusion of the "Dark Angel Saga" storyline in Uncanny X-Force, one of the most rollicking X-comics to date.

In this grand finale, author Rick Remender and illustrator Jerome Opeña take us to the mutant team's last stand against Archangel, their erstwhile teammate who has been corrupted by the villain Apocalypse. Courtesy of Marvel Comics, here's an exclusive sneak peek at next issue's deadly standoff. (Also, learn why Dark Beast thinks Apocalypse hired War, his underperforming Horseman!)

Uncanny X-Force #18 hits stands next Wednesday, December 14. You can read a synopsis of the story so far below, and here's our recent interview with Rick Remender and a brief history of all things X-Force.
