    While I find Valentine De Landro's artwork touch and go usually, I can't complain about the man's ability to successfully tell a story, even if his handling of Guido isn't exactly the best. And David's shining scripting more than makes up for so-so art. While X-Factor may be in the throes of someone else's story, it's still its own idiosyncratic book filled with compelling characters and storylines, and still the best book you aren't reading.

    I don't think this is an essential tie-in to Second Coming, but it's a solid issue of a X-Factor. I had some issues with the art being kind of drab, but David brings enough zest in the script to balance it out. Seeing all these mutant bumping heads, even if it isn't over the most earth-shattering matters, is still some good fun. Read Full Review
