After the shocking events of the past few issues, Madrox has learned that in X-Factor, anything can happen. Separated from his teammates and involved in a war he never expected to see, he can only look back on the days when the team stood together.

    I've long considered X-Factor the most reliable, consistently well-written X-title since its first story arc. Peter David comes to the title with a love for the characters that's tangible on every page, and Madrox as the unlikely main lead gives the title a sense of humanity. As always, this issue of X-Factor delivers everything readers have come to expect. Read Full Review

    So why Peter David isn’t promising to blow your socks off each month now with shocking cliff hangers in X-Factor, he does still seem to be sticking to his promise that the quality of the book is on the rise. Of the past four issues of the book (since the reveal of the baby dupe) I’d probably mark this as my favourite instalment of X-Factor in 2009 due to the wider focus on the larger cast, awesome art and a killer final page.

    Getting nosy with one of the Madrox dupes can't be a good idea. But it's fine for this title, which seems to have received its stimulus package and is back in the swing of things again. Jamie can't feel guilty over abandoning Layla if he's fighting alongside her again, and that's great, because a guilty Jamie means a glum time for everyone. Read Full Review

    There's very little to criticize about X-Factor as it stands -- Valentine DeLandro's work is light years ahead of most of the book's previous artists, and it's particularly nice, as a reader, to see some consistency on a book that'd been dogged by artistic reshuffles in recent years. It might not be quite so obviously the best X-title around anymore, but it makes me care about the characters and never fails to leave me ready for another issue. In that respect, it's got everything I'm after in a comic. Read Full Review
