    Sadly, the art continues to drag down the series at points. That should come as no surprise by now. This issue does benefit from the fact that there are only one penciler and one inker on board. The visual consistency is superior to recent issues, and generally the art is successful when it doesn't zoom into close focus. On the other hand, figures have a fairly loose quality about them, and there are one or two moments of cringe-worthy facial work that recall last month's horrendous portrayal of Monet. Given how superb De Landro was earlier on in this series, I really get the impression that he just needs more time to work. Hopefully, when X-Factor goes on its brief hiatus, De Landro and his collaborators will be able to work out a more efficient division of labor that doesn't lead to the occasional but recurring instances of artistic meltdown we've been seeing.
