    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 10, 2021

    X-Factor #8 sets the perfect tone early on and keeps it up throughout the issue, changing ever slightly in each scene as the story demands it. Williams shows a mastery of tone and character throughout this story. Baldeon's art is the perfect accompaniment to her scripts, really capturing what makes them special. Together, they've made X-Factor into one of the best X-Men books, and this issue is a prime example of why that is. Read Full Review

    Comic book stuff happens in a comic book. Some interesting ideas get played with, and the writing, characters, story and artwork are all good. But mostly it's just a quick fight against a bad guy. Read Full Review

    This remains a polarizing comic, one that justifiably has earned its fans but also seems to miss as much as it hits. Read Full Review
