It canâ€™t have been that long ago that I praised X-Factor as being one of my favorite comic books. It must have been even less time than that that I announced, even though the artwork by Larry Stroman was giving me heart palpitations, I would continue to buy the book for Peter Davidâ€™s writing. Yeahâ€¦ what was I thinking?
When I found out that X-Factor #33 was part of a three part Secret Invasion tie-in with She-Hulk, I was not happy. Iâ€™m never happy when X-Factor gets dragged into another event or mini-series.Â But there was more to it; what I didnâ€™t know that Peter David was writing She-Hulk.
I became a fan of X-Factor late last year, and have been in love ever since. To be fair, itâ€™s pretty much just a giant man-crush on Jamie Madrox, but there is nothing too shabby about Siren either, a character that I really do like. However, the reason I continue to keep reading X-Factor â€“ primarily â€“ is to see when in hells bells Layla Miller will return. And to anyone who wants to cry â€œMarvel continuity sucksâ€ at me for her appearance in Secret Invasion, give me a break; it was a flash-back!
