    I don’t have a problem with female-centric books, but this is at first, predictable and second, just another half-hearted attempt to pigeonhole the lady super heroes into one big team on one big title (see The Fearless Defenders) – it’s not an organic smushing of characters, the focus is spread thin, and aside from a few characters, most are left on the fringes of the story. She-Hulk is the baroness of an idyllic island, but there’s trouble in paradise and a traitor (view spoiler)[ If I told you I don’t have a problem with female-centric books, but this is at first, predictable and second, just another half-hearted attempt to pigeonhole the lady super heroes into one big team on one big title (see The Fearless Defenders) – it’s not an organic smushing of characters, the focus is spread thin, and aside from a few characters, most are left on the fringes of the story.

Singularity, a character who is apparently a walking pocket universe, is introduced. There’s some nice interplay between some of the characters – Cute is good and goes a along way!! Bottom Line: Overall, a flawed, but decent Secret Wars title. I just wish Marvel could perfect the all-female superhero team thing for once.

    You know, I see a lot of people sometimes including myself complain about the current state of Marvel comics. Ya want to know why that is? It’s because they publish s*** like this. What’s it about? The land of... f***, I already forgot the name of the place, is protected by the mostly female superhero team A-Force.

It’s because they publish s*** like this. What’s it about? The land of... f***, I already forgot the name of the place, is protected by the mostly female superhero team A-Force. During a mission America Chavez does something stupid that causes her to be arrested by a group of Thors (shaking your head yet?). As some girl (I think her name may have been Nico or something) is sad that the Thors sent her friend away she meets some other girl who’s made of stars or something. Yeah, this was pretty bad. Pros: The art was wonderful! So many fantastic panels throughout the book! If this was just an art book with no words or story I would probably give it 5 stars. Great job, art team! Some great action scenes. Very exciting and well drawn! Cons: The story was not interesting but was a complete clusterf***. Almost nothing in this book made sense. Why is this random girl made of stars and/or the universe and how the hell did she end up on this random world? What the hell is this random world actually? Why are there Thor police? Is this meant to be cannon or is it some alternative “what if” thing? Why do villains from (view spoiler)[ the Marvel Zombies world show up? (hide spoiler)] What even happened at the end of the story? This book answers none of these questions making this book a decent example of why people think comics are stupid. The characters are kinda horrible in this book. She-Hulk just acts as the leader of A-Force and does almost nothing except mope. Captain Marvel pretty much just stands there, says a few things and punches the occasional bad guy. Nico spends most of the book crying (literally, just stands there crying). The girl made of stars and stuff pretty much was a weird mix of Curious George and Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite except she’s not nearly as cool as either. Dazzler took up a surprising amount of the book to make it more colorful. Some of characters show up for a little bit and nobody does anything particularly interesting. The dialogue is atrocious. Whoever wrote this book’s stupid dialogue (there’s 2 writers of this book so I don’t know which one I should blame) probably shouldn’t be a writer in fact. This book tries to be funny but fails. It’s not as bad as some of the terrible humor attempts I have seen in books but still pretty bad. This book is predictable which it’s sad that I pretty much expect that from Marvel comics since I often enjoy them but seriously, I can usually tell you what will happen in a Marvel comic after about one issue, this book is no exception. The ending sucks. So (view spoiler)[ Marvel Zombies universe villains show up for no reason I think Marvel probably told the team that they had to do a 5th issue so this is the nonsensical bulls*** we got (hide spoiler)] and as a solution to this nonsense we get rushed deus ex machina bulls***. Yay, nobody’s favorite. Then there’s a final page that’s just confusing artsy crap that does nothing. Overall: This is one of the worst superhero books I have read in my life (though I can think of a few worse ones I’ve read sadly) and I read a lot of superhero books, it’s stuff like this that makes me want to give up on them sometimes. I don’t know why a major business like Marvel thought they should cut down perfectly good trees to print this. I think the tree probably has better writing skills than the people who wrote this. If you want to read something good I can think of a bunch of better books for you, if you want to read a clusterf*** of superheroes pouting read this waste of paper. At least the pictures are pretty. 2/5

    The only real problem I had with this book is that there are far too many characters. Yes, it's technically a team book, but in actual, ongoing team books, that should even out as characters who star in one story become supporting characters in the next.

I'd say that there's at least half a dozen characters who don't get more than a couple of panels in this book, which is kind of a shame. The story itself is actually fairly good. It's built around a theme of (chosen) family, and uses the rules of Battleworld. Which I'm still learning, as I'm not reading Secret Wars as it goes on. I learned more from this particular miniseries about how Battleworld operates than I have any other. There's a real emotional heart to this story, with the caveat that you probably already have to know and have some attachment to these characters to get that in just a few issues. If you don't already know and love Ms. America from Young Avengers, are you going to care about what happens to her in issue one? If you're not already attached to Nico from Runaways, are you going to feel for her? I'm honestly not sure. In the end, this enormous crop of Secret Wars miniseries are going to be sorted into two categories, worth it and don't bother. This one absolutely goes into the worth it pile.

    Oh girl, I’m starting to think G. Willow Wilson’s only quality work is on Ms Marvel - first that Vixen crap at DC, now “A-Force”, a ‘90s-sounding lame superhero team?

Then a series of disasters happen and She-Hulk’s leadership is challenged. Stuff is going on - what’s gonna happen next? Fart. This was terrible, guys. The story is bollocks: a shark attacks, portals appear, a cosmic being called Singularity’s flying around, it’s all part of some ridiculously abstract plan by the most obvious villain, not that any of it makes a lick of difference in the long run anyway. Also regardless of this being an all-female book, it’s still full of brainless punching scenes - sisters fighting sisters! Brilliant nuanced takes on the characters. I guess if women ruled the world it wouldn’t be that much better after all. There’s a sea surrounding Arcadia - and I’ll give the book this, Jorge Molina’s art is very good, this place is by far the most appealing-looking in all of Battleworld - and a giant wall enclosing it that gets punctured at one point but instead of the water rushing out, a weird rubbly path emerges in the middle of it that’s not very deep at all, allowing the threat to wander through. Ocean-level sea one minute, shallow pool mysteriously held back the next. No narrative consistency at all and I know Battleworld is a weird place but come on. It’s such a stupid scene that’s representative of the crap that is A-Force. I like a lot of these characters - Shulky, Ms America, Sister Grimm, and even Kamala Khan makes a brief appearance too - but they’re so badly written here. She-Hulk is bland, Nico is beyond annoying and everyone else comes off as completely one-dimensional. They’re female superheroes - that’s their characters! This Secret Wars tie-in was complete garbage. The A stands for Awful.

    The Battleworld island of Arcadia is defended by A-Force. A-Force is a team of warrior women led by She Hulk. Recently problems have been occurring outside the normal and A-Force must discover the cause before their home and team are destroyed. A-Force is an interesting bunch because they take most of the toughest Marvel women and put them on a team together. In this Battleworld it appeared they lived in an Amazonian sort of way where the women lead and the men are the lesser citizens even though The Battleworld island of Arcadia is defended by A-Force.

I noticed characters like Namor, Black Bolt, Captain America, and the Winter Soldier helping in the background while the talk focused on Arcadia's heroines. They are a good team and I especially appreciated that they didn't simply have a Secret Wars tie-in ending where Doom's strength of genius stopped all that was happening.

    A sweet story, with a touch of emotion and loss that doesn't normally show up in the "bro" comics. Oh is that so? Marguerite Bennett does poetry in her comic scripts? This oughtta be an interesting ride... While some complain that there are too many women in this comic to do each of them justice, that's a weird criticism to lay on such a book: too *many* women. Yes not all of them get an arc or even a personality; neither do the guy-heavy a Avengers or X-Men when a big-team book gets together.

Yes not all of them get an arc or even a personality; neither do the guy-heavy a Avengers or X-Men when a big-team book gets together. But isn't it cool that we get to see the breadth (if not the entirety of depth) of the female super-heroes in Marvel, for a rare occasion? When was the last occasion like this - Lauren Sankovitch's Girl Comics anthology? No wait, there was Brian Wood's mediocre X-Men (ugh). Like these great heroes we haven't seen together: [Though why Jennifer is still rocking the 80's high-cut swimsuit is beyond me] The adventure is a simple mystery, with portals and crossing forbidden borders, betrayal and the threat of being overrun by the zombie hordes: [zombie Green Goblin's looking pretty good these days] Couple of questions I have after reading half of the Secret Wars book and a couple of tie-ins: 1. How did Doom remember so many of the heroes and villains to be able to recreate them? He's always holed up in his castle, and he doesn't keep a copy of the Encyclopedia of the Marvel Universe on his bookcase. *I* don't even remember half of these folks without prompting. I mean, even Snowbird [she's in the back row with that spectacular headpiece and matching neck cape]? Maybe Doom secretly kept a spank bank for them all. 2. Did Doom decide which costume each player would have? If so, again how did he know Captain Marvel went militaristic, but didn't see She-Hulk's new getup? Did he let his subscription to Super People magazine lapse? And one last question: with such a wide range of female heroes represented, where the hell was Doreen?

    very dry, uneventful, and written like the author didn’t even know what was going on. i’ve heard such amazing things of this book and i’m so disappointed. i hope the next series is better ....... i mean i didn’t think a book of just heroines could be like....... this. but it reads fast which is good. i read this start to finish in less than 45 minutes. medusa was the best part.

    Wow! This was BALLER (my word for 2016, apparently). My favorite character gets banished at the very beginning, so boo on that, but this whole thing was great. WHO RUN THE WORLD? STRONG WOMEN WITH SUPERPOWERS WHO GET SHIT DONE. And now I have a ton of characters I love and want to read more about, so hooray for that! So much reading to do. FEMALES ARE STRONG AS HELL (but America, bb, why did you have to throw that goddamn shark)

    I have no idea what the background of this series is - Weird alternate universe, I'm guessing? Alternate timeline, like House of M? - anyway, that doesn't matter. This book's good, clean, shark-punching fun. It's great to see so many Marvel-ous (get it?) ladies kicking butt. Looking forward to more.

    A-Force was one of the more interesting tie-ins to the recent Secret Wars event. A-Force introduces an all-female Avengers squad (a team that will continue in the rejiggered post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe). On Battleworld, She-Hulk is the baroness and chief protector of Arcadia, a peaceful island nation. She also leads A-Force, charged with protecting the prosperous community. Key allies include Captain Marvel, Medusa, Dazzler, the female Loki, Nico Minoru and Ms. America.

A-Force introduces an all-female Avengers squad (a team that will continue in the rejiggered post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe). On Battleworld, She-Hulk is the baroness and chief protector of Arcadia, a peaceful island nation. She also leads A-Force, charged with protecting the prosperous community. Key allies include Captain Marvel, Medusa, Dazzler, the female Loki, Nico Minoru and Ms. America. An attack by an odd sea monster leads Ms. America to inadvertently breach the border of a neighboring kingdom. That brings down the Thors (the police force of Battleworld) on Arcadia. Ms. America is taken into custody, even as more incursions onto Arcadia pop up. The mysterious Singularity, a cosmic-powered young woman of few words, falls into the action and points the way toward a traitor in Arcadia. An epic clash with a neighboring zone jeopardizes the island’s survival. Before A-Force had rolled out, it was the subject of misplaced criticism about its goals. Writers G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett aren’t pushing any kind of agenda here. They craft a fast-moving, involving story populated with interesting characters. A-Force succeeds because it’s not trying to be self-consciously “feminist.” Instead, it quietly stands as a nice achievement in broadening the diversity of the comic book tent by allowing two talented female writers to present a kick-ass superhero story that just happens to star a team of female heroes. Men exist in the world of A-Force. A few well-known male characters are seen in small roles, including fighting alongside the army of predominantly female heroes in the climactic melee. The focus on a handful of strong, colorful female characters is welcome. She-Hulk and Captain Marvel have been Marvel staples for years and the writers depict them as strong, decisive leaders and fearless warriors. Dazzler, an oft-maligned character who is nonetheless a fan favorite, is used rather well. Her powers pop and she adds a fun personality to the proceedings. Medusa and Loki deepen the drama, Nico remains one of the best creations of the past decade or so and Singularity is an intriguing new addition. The story makes the most of its Secret Wars setting, giving readers a distinctive perspective on the massive saga. It’s smart, entertaining work that sets up the ongoing series rather nicely. Jorge Molina, with support from inkers Walden Wong and Craig Yeung, gives A-Force a sturdy visual grounding. His female character work is strong, projecting the power of the women without saddling them with impossible Barbie doll physiology. He handles the action sequences well and infuses some drama into the quieter moments. If a couple of his big battle scenes get a tad muddled and some facial expressions tend toward caricature, overall it’s good work. Superstar colorist Laura Martin does her usual first rate job, making effective use of dynamic color contrasts while coming up with some nice effects that enhance big moments. For fans who need to be selective about which Secret Wars tie-ins they buy, A-Force is a good bet. A version of this review originally appeared on www.thunderalleybcp.com

    The A-Force, an all female Avengers team in Warzone Arcadia , is on the case when monsters start invading the city. This was a terrific adventure, filled with fantastic characters. I wish America had been in more, but storywise, that's my only complaint. I wasn't crazy about the art generally--seemed largely exploitative, which is extra gross in story for women. The one exception is Singularity, who was impeccably colored. I loved the relationships, and the five issue arc was perfectly paced.

Kamala and Dazzler talking fanfic!)--not to mention the handful of men who made it in: Bucky, Steve, Luke Cage, Hulkling, Zombie Hulk. And possibly Iron Man, though isn't there a female Iron Man? Could go either way. Still, it was startling to see Bucky, in a somewhat feminized (twisted) pose, and then see the other guys! In a fun way, though. This is one I might buy.

    I only gave this 4 instead of 5 because I don't like that this collection didn't not have a preface or run down of the characters as I've encountered in many other graphic novels. Also, it's not established that this is an alternative universe?? There were several characters in the story whom I was not familiar with and had no idea about their entangled relationships or what their powers were; but they way the story is written, it's as if the writer assumes the reader is familiar already.

That aside, the story is great! I particularly like how She-Hulk is written, with her moral and legal struggles, she makes a great leader in A-Force. The fight scenes are great and with a provocative roster of heroines. It all makes for a great balance of humor and action. Definitely looking forward to the next stories from A-Force.

    I love all of the characters in this book, and I love G. Willow Wilson's contributions to the Marvel universe. So I was really looking forward to seeing so many great heroines interacting, and was proportionally disappointed when I got into it, only to find out it is not a starting point whatsoever and is a huge mess in terms of script and panel layout. **edit** I forgot got talk about the panel layout in my initial review, but this was something that bothered me the whole way through.

If you know what the "Marvel Style" of writing and drawing comic books is, where the artist actually tells the whole story, and then the writer lazily draws in little speech and thought bubbles to somewhat match what it looks like is going on, then you should be able to see this happening in the worst way in A-Force. SO MANY TIMES there would be a character who stops mid-sentence and then has disappeared on the next, followed by someone else saying the second half of another statement that doesn't actually fit with the first fragment at all. And if you think you've been reading comics for enough years to intuitively navigate the intended panel order? Think again. Layouts that seemed to go single-page actually needed to be read top-down from the second page first, and sometimes there seemed to be some spiral-shaped order to the text, but the shape and placement of the panels did not indicate this. Agh. It's hard to describe in words, but hopefully I'm not the only one who felt this way. I've had zero interest in the whole Secret Wars thing, but without having some of that context, this book and the world in which it takes place makes no sense. I literally said aloud at the last page, "WTF did I just read?!" The final issue (#5) had some good cutesy jokes, and I'm really glad to see Nico, America, Loki, and She-Hulk et al showing their love and interpersonal conflict so much. Those elements alone almost warrant a higher rating in my review, but really I'm just pissed at Marvel editorial board for teasing us over and over with strong titles led by hilarious and interesting ladies, only to throw the whole multiverse in a blender over and over.

    This story has some touching emotional moments. Especially the relationship between Nico and Singularity was fun to read. The only problem I had with the story is that the climax wrapped up too quickly, and there didn't seem to be any real danger at the end. This story has some touching emotional moments.

    I appreciated the color tableau of "badass female heroes of the Marvel Universe" (some of my favorites popped up in there!" Not crazy about the story, but I guess they had to kick it off somehow. Curious how the post-Wars issues will go. I appreciated the color tableau of "badass female heroes of the Marvel Universe" (some of my favorites popped up in there!"

    Super fun. Loved all the heroines and the message. Art wasn't my favorite; it was very Marvel-event style. Super fun. Loved all the heroines and the message. Art wasn't my favorite; it was very Marvel-event style.

    This is a fun quick read with really good art that ties heavily into the Battleworld premise. Basically, the A-Force protects an island off the coast of Battleworld called Arcadia. The team consists of mainly female characters led by She-Hulk. A hot headed America Chavez breaks the first rule of Doom due to some behind the scenes machinations that come to light later in the series. They discover multiple portals that lead to other sections of Battlworld being opened in and around Arcadia which c This is a fun quick read with really good art that ties heavily into the Battleworld premise. Basically, the A-Force protects an island off the coast of Battleworld called Arcadia. The team consists of mainly female characters led by She-Hulk. A hot headed America Chavez breaks the first rule of Doom due to some behind the scenes machinations that come to light later in the series. They discover multiple portals that lead to other sections of Battlworld being opened in and around Arcadia which causes creatures and other nasties to enter their domain. A being known as Singularity also appears in the form of a small teenage girl. One thing leads to another and they find out not only who is behind the portals but manage to appease the Thor corps from razing Arcadia. Singularity saves everyone by sacrificing herself to remove the wave of Marvel zombies that are spilling into Arcadia. I enjoyed this little story and again, the art is great. What I didn't like is that alot that is thrown at you without much information behind it. It's that type of story or movie where you can enjoy it very much as long as you dont look to far beneath the surface, then the logic starts faulting. A fun read, recommended if you like chicks kicking ass and awesome art.

    Wilson and Bennett get to do a Secret Wars mini-series all about the kick-ass female characters in Marvel, teaming up and kicking ass. It's predictable, it's cheesy, it's got some less-than-stellar jokes, but it's fun. These are great characters to focus on, and the art lets them do the big superhero sci-fi action stuff you'd expect. I just wish that a book full of female characters holding each other tenderly and kissing each other on the cheek and talking about how much they love each other...

I wish a book like that could actually let a queer couple canonically exist? Especially when canonically queer characters are in the book! And don't kiss! Why?

    My only complaint about this book is that they didn't manage to give more screen time to more awesome ladies. This was a total delight, and I'm looking forward to reading the next volume of it. The art was great, and the team did a great job including a lot of fun cameos and humor. My only complaint about this book is that they didn't manage to give more screen time to more awesome ladies.

    This seems to be set in some alternate universe with all the female superheros all living on an island. There's a Megalogon, zombies, Thor police, and a new character that seems to be made of stars? Overall, bizarre, but I don't really read these because they are rational.

    I’m not going to lie, I was confused for about 75% of this book... but I completely adored Singularity and I enjoyed seeing Nico again, so I’m going to pick up the next two volumes anyway.
