The end of X-Factor!

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Sep 4, 2013

    This is the send-off that I was really hoping X-Factor would get: some very minor threads are introduced for other creative teams to pick up if they so choose, but nothing is left unresolved with the central characters. This is an absolutely amazing conclusion to what has been a spectacular arc in what has been one of the most legendary runs in comics. To not only be writing the same book for ten years, but to keep a level of consistent quality that Peter David has is nothing short of incredible and it has been an absolute joy to keep up on some of Marvel's most interesting, overlooked B-listers. I have no idea what the future holds for the characters nor the title itself, but whoever it is had better have tremendous feet for the size of the shoes they have to fill. Read Full Review

    This was a fantastic final issue. It celebrates the lead character and gives him a happy ending. What more could we ask for? Read Full Review

    I am a big fan of X-Factor for many years and thought that I would have some tinge of sadness when it comes to end of the book but with hints of a new team being formed and possible being re-launched as a Marvel Now title I am not really bothered by it. Peter David knew well in advance of the book ending so had time to end it the way he wanted and got to tie up all the loose ends. The writing of David remained consistently high on this title even during his health issues and ends on a solid high with everything tied up neatly. The art is also of a really high quality with Edwards being a real up and coming artist. This book is well worth picking up if you are a fan of X-Factor but may not be a great book to get for the non fans who don't know the backstory. Ill be looking forward to the re-launch with a new team in the not too distant future. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 4, 2013

    But unlike Lost, where it became increasingly clear towards the end that any answers given to the various burning questions would disappoint, it really is a shame that David left so much open and unresolved with this book. For better or worse, this issue practically screams that the story isn't over and at least some of the gang will be back in the spotlight soon. Whether that's a comforting thought or cause for further annoyance is really up to the reader. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Sep 6, 2013

    I hate to be too hard on this comic: it's not without wit and heart, and I think we can all agree that a series as good as this iteration of X-Factor deserved to go out on its own terms. This final story arc wasn't the series' strongest, but if Peter David felt it was one that needed telling, I won't begrudge him that. Read Full Review
