X-Factor #1 has sold out at Diamond and in response, Marvel is going back to press with a second printing variant sporting just the cover inks by Sook. Spinning out of the surprise-hit mini-series Madrox as well as the not-so-surprising hit House of M, writer Peter David and artist Ryan Sookâ€™s new take on X-Factor has made a triumphant debut.
Fans and critics alike have been raving about the return of this long-awaited X-title.
Keith Dallas of SilverBulletComicBooks.com says X-Factor #1 is â€œone of the best comic books Iâ€™ve read all year.â€
Eric Sunde of IGN.com calls X-Factor #1 a â€œMust Haveâ€¦ David doesn’t miss a beat from the Madrox miniseries or his previous run on X-Factor and hits the ground running.â€
Writer Peter David returns to write X-Factor, the book he took over in 1991 when he introduced the All-New, All-Different X-Factor. He returns now with a new series for a new team, made up of old favorites like Madrox, Strong Guy, and Wolfsbane along with new recruits Siryn, M, and Rictor. Artist Ryan Sook is onboard displaying a gorgeous dark and gritty style for the investigators of X-Factor that is sure to impress.
â€œItâ€™s thrilling to hear so many people have enjoyed X-Factor #1,â€ says editor Andy Schmidt. â€œPlease tell your friends about it so we can keep X-Factor going for years to come. And let your retailers know to buy more copies of issue #2 than they did of issue #1. Thanks, everyone, for your support!â€
