    So let's talk opinions. So who is this mystery woman that Monet has so unwittingly awakened? She looks familiar and her name is familiar too but I just can't place her yet. (For some reason, I'm associating her with Wolverine.) Overall, a great book. It's good to see Rahne's character get developed a bit more. The interaction between her and Rictor is hilarious. The whole gay discussion is hilarious. Peter David is an expert at making multiple characters come to life. The opening art with the kids and the fiery background is very nicely drawn. My one issue is the total lack of Las Vegas updates. We could have thrown a few pages of Vegas in. It wouldn't have upset the tone of the book. Well, here's hoping next issue is all Vegas. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    Valentine De Landro returns with an updated visual style that proves to be a significant improvement over past issues. De Landro's work is now a bit sketchier than before, but also more detailed and consistent at the same time. X-Factor rarely enjoys a consistent visual tone for many months, so hopefully De Landro can keep this new level of quality going for a while. This may be true every month, but X-Factor fans have plenty to be thankful for with this series. Read Full Review

    "X-Factor" isn't always sweetness and light, but this is definitely a darker turn for the comic. I don't mind getting a little less cheerfulness in the title, but it's a fine line to walk, doubly so when the darkness comes at the expense of liking the main characters. A lot of the strength in "X-Factor" has been enjoying the character interactions, so hopefully they won't all end up distasteful before too long. At least next month brings Longshot back on board, and that should help somewhat, but this was a huge shift in style. Read Full Review
