  1. “Guaranteed to be the most emotional issue of X-Factor this month!”

    Oh, Peter David.

  2. Ha!  To be fair the last issue did ship two weeks ago.

  3. Is that the right blurb?  I feel like that’s what happened last month. 

  4. While the issue wasn’t outright bad, it was weak. The story here didn’t seem to warrant a full issue, which is interesting as the majority of PADs stories for this book have been broken up over several issues. The art was good, though. This book really is a series of peaks and valleys in terms of quality for me. 3/5

  5. Two pages in, I knew it was a “town suspended from time” story… definitely one of the weaker issues.

  6. I really liked the issue. It gave Darwin room to grow and teased us with yet another possible future. And a baby actually lived in the Marvel Universe! Sure, he turned out to be an evil harginger of the apocalypse, but at least one survived. (Unless Darwin kills it with the demon gun he brought back.)

  7. Wow … I must be living in a different comic book universe. I thought this was an awesome issue. The interlude into a character development story about Darwin was well positioned in the broader narrative. And something expanding Darwin has been long overdue. I especially liked the artwork (esp. the opening desert scene).

  8. I agree, this was surprisingly awesome. I think I liked Darwin for the first time as a character and Luppacchino really impressed, pulling in some of her loose, sloppy stuff and really telling a good yarn. Major repercussions for the story of Rahne’s baby. I think Hela pulled some shennanigans when she ‘saved’ their lives…
