Here’s the full press release from MARVEL:

You wanted it, now you’ve got it! After an overwhelming demand for the sold out issues of X-Force #1-3, Marvel is proud to announce X-Force: Legacy of Vengeance, collecting the first three chapters of this red hot storyline! From the phenomenal writing duo of Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle (New X-Men), featuring, absolutely stunning art by rising star artist Clayton Crain, this X-Men; Divided We Stand tie-in reveals the future of mutantkind! Following the Earth-shattering events of the smash hit Messiah CompleX, Cyclops has put together a brand-new dark-ops team that only he and members Wolverine, X-23, Warpath and Rahne know about. There are lines that the X-Men have sworn never to cross, but the X-Men are no more and some enemies need to be dealt with — permanently. This book has it all: Purifiers, the classic X-villain Bastion, and action that only a team led by Wolverine can bring. All this is wrapped in a new vibrant X-Force cover that you’ll need to see to believe!

Francis Davis of FractalMatter.com says “X-Force is a compelling must read.” and Kevin Powers of Comicsbulletin.com says “Anyone who likes mutants, military operations, Wolverine-esque violence and pure bad-assery is sure to love this title, because you get all of that rolled into one.”

The events in Messiah CompleX shook the X-Men to their core and this special one-shot is a perfect look into how the all-new, all-different X-Force take on their first mission—but will they survive the X-perience? Don’t miss your chance to catch up on these sold-out issues in X-Force: Legacy of Vengeance!

If you missed out the first time around, getting three issues for the price of two is a pretty decent deal. If the idea of a black-ops X-team piques your interest, be sure to pick this up when it hits shelves in May.
