    X-Factor #30 was another enjoyable read. David certainly kicks this story up a couple of notches as we get plenty of action and an exciting hook ending. X-Factor continues to be one of Marvel's better written titles. David is still trying to get his footing after Messiah Complex derailed some of X-Factor's momentum. X-Factor is still worth every penny of its cover price and is certainly one of Marvel's stronger reads. Read Full Review

    As ever, David's "X-Factor" is, even in light of recent shuffles, setting the standard for the entire X-line to follow with its blend of modern superheroics, soap-opera plots and complex character interaction. An utter must-buy for any mutant fans. Read Full Review

    I'm still missing Pablo Raimondi on art quite a bit, but Valentine De Landro fills in admirably. The atmosphere is still dark and shadowy, but doesn't have that same level of polish that I'm used to with Raimondi. Even though I'm disappointed by this issue in particular and the arc in general, I'm optimistic that this is an aberration. David still has a wealth of material to play with. Madrox's relationship with his dupes, Siryn's pregnancy, and Layla Miller's eventual return are all hanging plot threads that need more exploring, and all of them will be much more exciting than a showdown with Arcade… Read Full Review
