    It's no surprise that a Peter David-written, Valentine de Landro-drawn X-Factor one-shot should be as involving, interesting and entertaining as any issue of the regular series. Read Full Review

    Nonetheless, regular X-Factor readers will find a lot to like here. Tangential one-shots for this series are usually hit-or-miss, but fans will welcome the deluge of character dynamics Peter David pours on, and the team's acceptance of their image as edgy loners who want nothing to do with the X-Men's west coast nonsense. This certainly isn't the deepest of X-Factor plots, nor the most ambitious use of the characters, but it is fun, and deserves a large amount of praise for that. Read Full Review

    A doneinone tale that was enjoyable, and a great sampler to give to other readers so they can get a feel of what Peter David's XFactor is like. The character interactions are great and spoton.This could have gone into Buy It or Must Read territory if it wasn't for the uneven art. Read Full Review
