X-Factor is a book I picked up starting at 230 on recommendation of a podcast I listen to. The exploits of a more select team of mutant seemed interesting to me and I wanted to see where it went. The first issue I read was great and had a lot of pathos and wonderfully emotional dialogue. It was nothing amazing but It had some great parts to it. Issue 231 picked up where madrox was and told a fun story that was akin to a DC elseworlds tale which is nice.

The reason I give so much backstory is to say that this book is exactly the same as 231. Its just a fun book that has some good action and weird possible worlds. Yet thats also where this book follies. The action is great the the colorist Matt Milla must be commended for making a impression on me with the magic thats slung around in this issue. Yet thats all this book really is, finishing up a story. Without spoiling too much the book finally switches back to the teams headquarters and even though this issue wasn’t all I wanted I’m excited for the next issue.

Also the cover is beautiful and honestly is the best part of the book, the cover artist David Yardin is to be commended

In Short: while not being a issue that floored me the coloring was brilliant and art in general was good but the story lacked emotion, and thats what I normally like in a story. But never to fear because the cliff-hanger made me keep the book on my pull list for another issue. Oh and the cover is brilliant.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 3 - Good
