X-Factor #248 Review

X-Factor #248 Review
A familiar face hovers between life and death.

The only one who can save them is Monet…but it will require reliving the most horrific experience of her life.

Cover/Solicit - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 3/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 3/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 3/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 3.1

- I liked the concept of the cover but what's wrong with Monet's facial expression? The art for the issue was just so-so, several of the characters didn't look like themselves and even at times their appearance seemed to change from one panel to the next. I really like X-Factor, and after the last filler issue I was hoping for something great. The story involves Pip who died in X-Factor #246 - Short Story coming back to life as part of Monet's psyche. While his body heals X-Factor is tasked with finding out who killed or tried to kill him. And just in time Madrox and Layla Miller return from their wedding to be caught in the trap that has been set for the X-Factor team. This is the start of a story arc and it's trying to close some loose ends, I just hope the actual arc is better than this issue.
