Maru. Mr. Tryp. X-Cell. The Isolationist. Madrox has gone against his fair share of unseemly and unfamiliar antagonists of late, but some villains never go out of style. Like Sentinels.

    In an industry where any increase in sales at all would be bucking the trend enormously, "X-Factor" seems almost capable of making such a turnaround. There was a time when the title was routinely described as "the best X-book Marvel is publishing" -- whether David got complacent, or the rest of the line simply improved to match his standards is a point for debate. A point that is indisputable, however, is that over the last couple of issues, David has placed the series back on top of the pile. Masterfully written, entertaining to read, it's one of those comics that should delight anyone who thinks they're a fan of superhero soap-opera, or those who cry out for single-issue stories instead of plodding, decompressed arc. If either of those sentences describe you, pick it up immediately. Don't let the hard work of these creators go to waste. Read Full Review

    Despite what the drop in score may imply, X-Factor is still one my favorite books on the stands and certainly has some of the greatest character work in any title at the moment. Peter David is notorious for making the best out of plot developments, so I have faith that the chaos he's dumped on these characters can only result in quality stories for us down the road.

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Mar 24, 2009

    The cover is an old school classic Sentinel panic moment (something every X-book needs periodically) by David Yardin, and De Landro does fine with the Madrox/Miller scenes, too. It's not easy to keep the visual interest up in a team book where everyone's attire is mostly jeans and t-shirts, but this issue is a good looking one that seems set to deliver some action to distract our heroes from their recent tragedies.

    There would be more, that would be spoiling things. Read Full Review
