    This issue doesn't wrap up the arc as well as I would have liked. Aside from the storytelling confusion that stems from the coloring mishaps, David left some characters and conflicts too open. Monet's search for her father is ignored this month, and I'm a little concerned how Layla's status is supposed to be resolved in the one issue before Second Coming begins. Part of me wonders if X-Factor wouldn't have been better off waiting until after Second Coming to make its fresh start. But that would have required us to wait a long time for new installments of David's quirky team of mutant investigators. That's not a sacrifice I think I could have borne. As long as the focus shifts back to the main cast more in the coming issues, I'll be a happy camper. Read Full Review

    Still, this is a massive improvement from "X-Factor" six months ago; the book feels energized and alive again, not counting out its pages and glancing at its watch. Who knew that adding 150 onto your age could make you feel young again? That might not work for people, but in the case of "X-Factor" it did the trick quite nicely. "X-Factor" is back in action and I'm happy to see its return. Read Full Review
