THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN PART 2 How can X-Factor be the defenders of Mutant Town when their little piece of the world is hemorrhaging its population? Combine that with Rahne already being gone and Madrox's team finds itself at its lowest point.

    X-Factor #29 was a wonderful read. However, I readily understand that X-Factor is not for everyone. This title is not going to give the reader non-stop action. There aren't going to be several double page splash shots and raucous brawls. X-Factor is more the thinking man's comic book and draws its strength and charm from well crafted dialogue and character work. X-Factor is an incredibly well crafted title that should appeal to most comic book fans outside of action junkies. Read Full Review

    Also sadly missing in action is Pablo Raimondi on art. I love his work so much that it's usually the first thing I look at on the cover when I pick it up off the rack. That's not to say Valentine De Landro does a bad job. It's actually quite good, with the exception of Rictor looking a bit like Charles Bronson at times, but there's always something unsatisfying about having to rotate artist so often. I know when you read this, it probably comes off as a pretty damning review, but it really isn't. If I were a teacher, I'd definitely point out more flaws on my best students' work than the more sub par ones, since I know what the best students have done in the past and are still capable of in the future.

    This title isn't earth shattering, but it's still Jaime's book despite the larger events that limit his world (and may have rendered his homebase, Mutant Town, meaningless), and this returning villain is an inspired choice for the film noir world that Jaime seems meant to inhabit. David maintains a unique and entertaining corner of the X-Men that's no less interesting for being off the beaten path. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 12, 2008

    However, I'm not too fond of Arcade. His whole gimmic has just never appealed to me and I'm not sure how he rigged all of Mutant Town, er, the middle east side into his death trap schtick. Though, the picture and message on the giant boulder at the end was priceless. Read Full Review
