Following up on last weekâ€™s review of two linked comics, this week I get to sit down and review both X-Factor #34 and X-Factor Layla Miller #1. And for all those of you who get sick of seeing me review 5 out of 5 comics, your wish has come at last. In this installment; the in-continuity/issued X-Factor #34, part 3 of the Darwin Awards storyline that was last seen in She Hulk #31.
My first introduction to witnessing an event as it took place was the Civil War/Infinite Crisis year. Back then, I was a little bit younger, and apparently I didnâ€™t mind the mass of books that you had to buy to keep up with what was happening. I was blissfully unaware of the sheer greed that went with such an event and the need to tie-in as much as humanly possible to make as much money. So when I saw the Secret Invasion banner on top of my X-Factor this past week, I was crestfallen. Not entirely surprised, just disappointed.
The Secret Invasion has already spilled into other Marvel titles, and the next two to feel the grasp of the green skinned villains are She-Hulk and X-Factor that not only tie-in to Secret Invasion, but also cross over with each other, in the He Loves You arc. Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of both issues arriving in July.
