    While it is difficult to delve into the work the issue does without spoiling the ending and the twist, it is worth highlighting. X-Factor #7 weaves moments generated for the fandom with an understanding of trauma too frequently ignored or understated. While it is clear before the ending that there is still plenty more to come, there is also a spot of light as the roster of hurting characters lean on each other to heal. Read Full Review

    The new storyline really kicks into high gear with this issue, with a lot of great character work to help carry it along. X-Factor is firing on all cylinders when it comes to storytelling and art. Read Full Review

    Overall this book continues to be a juggernaut in the x-lineup. It’s one of the best series not only for LGBTQ2IA+ representation but for deep emotional relationships and stories with a fun quirkiness to them. Don’t sleep on this series. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 3, 2021

    X-Factor #7 is a good comic. Williams focuses a lot on the characters, but the issue is very slow-paced. It kind of makes the main plot feel unimportant in a lot of ways, almost like it's just incidental to everything else. The whole Siryn mystery is resolved rather quickly, but the end of the issue cliffhanger does a great job in making it feel more important than the rest of the story does and works very well. Baldeon's art is great, but that's pretty much his default setting at this point. X-Factor #7 works, but it doesn't balance the character drama with the main plot very well and almost fumbles the ball. Read Full Review
