    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Aug 26, 2020

    X-Factor #2 presents a brand new look at Mojoworld that's perfect- it's exactly the right kind of evolution for a place obsessed with entertainment. Williams keeps the whole thing nice and light with the dialogue, but it doesn't sabotage the book's tone at all. Baldeon's art is the icing on the cake. X-Factor #2 builds an intriguing mystery- what happened in Mojoworld and who was murdered- and keeps things light and exciting. Read Full Review

    Leah Williams, David Baldeon, and Israel Silva bring their A-game to X-Factor #2. They make a comic that is equal part heart and humor and an all-around pleasure to read. Read Full Review

    Nothing like a good looking, lighthearted ensemble book to add to the X-line varied styles of storytelling. Certainly worth the coin. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 26, 2020

    David Baldeon is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists with his work in this issue. Besides the dynamic characters and panel progression, the backgrounds come alive with energy and detail. I love the look of this book a lot and the reveal of Mojo was beautifully done. I could see a print of that image hanging from someone's wall. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Aug 26, 2020

    Overall, this was another fun issue. My biggest complaint is that when I got to the end I was absolutely craving more. This is not to say I didnt enjoy it, it was a lot of fun, but I absolutely devoured this issue so quickly. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Aug 26, 2020

    In terms of the story, not much happens in this issue. I am finding that this series is carrying itself on the snark and dialogue alone, but that's okay because I could read a full day's worth of banter between X-Factor members, especially when Daken is involved. If you are looking for some classic X-Men snark, you have come to the right place. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Aug 26, 2020

    Overall ‘X-Factor’ boldly stamps its place in the ‘Dawn of X’ line-up as a must read series. It’s bright, fun and wacky. Go read it! Read Full Review

    While there are still some lingering narrative issues (this month's chapter just...ended), it's still a big improvement from the opening chapter. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Brake Aug 28, 2020

    X-Factor #2 is far from a self-serious issue. Its creative team presents a fun, wacky story in Mojoworld. Some of the characterizations can be a little shallow at times, as members of X-Factor are either scowling and serious or quippy, although eventually, everyone gets a quip or two in.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 29, 2020

    X-Factor #2 is a refreshing change of pace from all the other X-Men comics we are getting. The team is still growing and learning to work together as the new resident detective agency on Krakoa. Leah Williams takes that concept and runs with it as we see the team growing their chemistry. Having the story set in Mojoverse added to the fun to this latest mystery X-Factor are on. More issues like this and X-Factor could quickly be one the better Marvel titles. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 29, 2020

    The writing is still mostly fun, and the groundwork continues to build for character interaction, but I feel like this issue loses itself in the grand, otherworldly scope it's trying to set up. Read Full Review
