    So like I said, it was a pretty solid issue. Polaris is too minor and underdeveloped a character for this to have any real emotional impact, but everyone else plays their parts well. It's always fun to see the members of X-Factor interacting. Plus the art is still top notch. X-Factor has been doing pretty good with artists lately. Read Full Review

    "X-Factor" #243's overall story feels a little forced, both in terms of Polaris's origin as well as so many members departing in such a short time period. But it's still turning out fun to read, and nice to look at. I'm willing to put up with a bit of clich if it means the end result is entertaining. Read Full Review

    The art is solid, keeping the dialogue-focused story visually interesting, though facial expressions and gestures are at times too exaggerated or cartoony. Read Full Review

    There are bound to be missteps in any great series, and this is, unfortunately, a misstep for X-Factor. The issue is clearly a transition towards greater things to come, but everything feels so forced and inconsequential right now. We get some explanation as to why Polaris has always acted a little different than everyone else, and David includes a healthy dose of his slick dialog. However, the shortcomings outweigh the achievements in this book. Read Full Review
