    I got my wish yet again. This one HAD IT ALL. Humor, witty banter, amazing action, not to mention Thor doing the straight man routine that makes him the star that he is. Read Full Review

    Also easily digestible are Emanuela Lupacchino's pencils. Lupacchino's work is sleek and attractive, a far cry from the often muddy visuals this series is home to. Let's hope Lupacchino becomes a regular member of the X-Factor art team from here on out. This series has been strong since the issue #200 relaunch, and in recent months has grown stronger still.

    At this point, at the end of the second/third major arc (depending on how you count the "Second Coming" crossover) it's hard to say whether "X-Factor"'s new direction is working especially well. Certainly, it's providing some interesting character combinations, and giving Madrox and Co. a chance to build their profile in the Marvel Universe, but at the same time, it lacks the intricacies and character focus of the few arcs that came before the relaunch. Arguably, it needed a change, but 12 issues in, it's not clear whether that change was for the better. Read Full Review

    Well, they can't all be gold... I've constantly said that X-Factor is the BEST X-book on the market today, but this issue didn't really live up to that billing. I didn't like the story(Pip the frigging Troll?!), and the outcome was just horrible(Layla just reaches in and pulls all of the X-Factor members to safety?!). The only good to have come out of this issue was Shatterstar learning that Wolfsbane had been lying about Rictor being the father of her child, since Shatterstar ran into the real father(that Asgardian Wolf King guy)in Niflhel. Other then that, this was a really lousy issue to a really good series. Read Full Review
