X-Factor is an investigative mutant agency led by Madrox the Multiple Man. Drawn together in the heart of District X, this rag-tag band of heroes has a lot of answers to find, and fast!

    Its one impressive visual among many impressive visuals within an impressively structured and executed issue. Im eager to see where David, Sook and company take these characters. I expect theyll take them down some avenues that we dont normally see in a super-hero team title. Read Full Review

    Buy this now. Everyone involved is at the top of their game, and the fact that David acknowledges all the recent mutant mayhem without bothering to try and justify it is just as good. You get the sense hed make this book work whatever the editors threw at him; the ideas strong enough to withstand a lot, precisely because the characters are so clearly differentiated.

    Its been a hell of a long time since X-Factor has been around, but with Peter Davids spot on characterization and plotting, and Ryan Sooks dynamic artwork, X-Factor is clearly back in business Read Full Review

    Final Thoughts: With some cool artwork by Ryan Sook and company and Davids firm grasp of Marvels mutant history, this comic is off to a great start. Bolstered by the events of DeciMation, this is another classic mutant team primed for exploring new and interesting storytelling avenues. Marvel is really enamored with Leonardo DaVincis Vitruvian image; Sook draws yet another interpretation of it in this book. Read Full Review

    A great cliffhanger is becoming a forgotten art, and Peter David should be commended for restoring the tradition here in X-Factor. But while the major players are introduced and the ramifications of M Day are explored, there is not much original action to this book so far. Readers have seen the effects of House of M in the other X-titles, and Rictors drama is not a particularly special take on the dilemma. While the dialogue with Madrox is essential to set up the fantastic ending, it may have benefited the issue as a whole to give less time to their dialogue and shine a bit more light on the other characters. It would be nice to be able to give an unconditional recommendation to read issue #1, because having read it you will want to pick up #2. Read Full Review
