    Once again an issue featuring the Reverend John Maddox proves to be one of X-Factor's best. Please give us more of these character-based issues, Mr. David! Read Full Review

    I have no idea why those cops wanted to arrest Theresa for clearing the tree out of the road – it kinda seemed like an excuse for Lorna to make the care fly… and I'm fine with that. In any case, I really admire Peter David's story telling in this issue – Madox's dupe is the perfect character to handle the Rahne issue, and whipping out the cat-o-nine tails was a great touch for someone like Rahne… although I have to say that for a character that is as into her Christianity as Rahne is, she sure doesn't seem to know anything about the standard nature of God that every branch of Christianity has been preaching fairly consistently for the last 50+ years. Maybe being a mutant were-wolf interfered with her Sunday School schedule. Read Full Review

    So, another good issue of "X-Factor" that recaptures the long-absent spirit of the book's early days. It's great to see a title cast in such a retro mold of sub-plots and single-issue stories that doesn't feel out-of-date. Where most books attempting to do something a bit more traditional end up feeling stilted and outmoded, "X-Factor" combines an older style of comic book storytelling with thoroughly modern techniques -- and the fact that it's not involved in any crossovers right now is just one more reason to enjoy it.

    I can't guarantee that following Rahne on her religious journey will intrigue you as much as it does me. I don't know if the subtlety of David's presentation will ring as true to you, either. If you aren't so concerned with life's deeper questions or how they affect those near us, consider this review a case of agreeing to disagree. If, on the other hand, you find yourself on a similar journey as Rahne or you wonder why guilt (especially in the context of religion) can affect people's behavior so profoundly, you would do well to sit down with this issue. Either way, expectthingsto be back to normal in issue #238. Read Full Review
