    I was unsure of Peter David's newest X-Factor villain, but this issue proves that he really works. David is working his magic with this title yet again, and I find myself wanting to read the next issue before finishing even this week's comics. If you're not caught up on this title, you might want to wait for the trade, but it's sure to warrant a purchase when it's released. Read Full Review

    Well this was an action packed little issue, now wasn't it? There was a lot of good here, namely the dialogue(as always), the action, the villain of the piece, Bloodbath, was a great threat who I hope we see again, and the story, while not one of Peter David's best, was solid. Now there were a few things that bugged me, namely the team ceasing their fight with Bloodbath because Bloodbath accused Guido of having no soul... I mean first of all, he's the bad guy, why the hell would you listen to him?! Secondly, who stops a battle to ask a team member if she brought one of their members back from the dead... While the villain is standing RIGHT THERE?! That whole scene seemed forced and would have been better served coming out at a different time, although I get why David did it then and there considering the end of this issue. Still, it seemed woefully out of place. So overall this was a strong comic, one that I can't wait to read the next issue of. Read Full Review

    In the end, this is a decent comic book, but one that suffers from following just about every comic that has come before it. I can't get on board with the plot because I don't buy that it has lasting ramifications, and so the emotional impact is powerfully blunted. It's unfortunate all around that this is the sandbox David has to play in, but it is what it is. Read Full Review
