Look back to Multiple Man, Quicksilver, Strong Guy and Wolfsbane's earlier days together as the U.S. government's motley mutants meet murder and mayhem in the Middle East Then, it's stateside struggles against the Nasty Boys and the Mutant Liberation Front, which may pale before a threat that strikes mutantkind much closer to home Guest-starring the Incredible Hulk and the ...more

Re-reading Peter David's first X-Factor run. It's as good as I remembered. The great crossover with The Incredible Hulk is included in this volume, which is a nice bonus.

A very fine collection. Think I like the Hulk comics collected herein a bit more, though. Dale Keown art is pretty hard to beat - one of the best in the business.

X-Factor-wise David's writing remains strong. That final page in the final panel of the book - really give a heart-tugging humanity to the oft cold Quicksilver, a character all to often given the short stick by all too many authors. David handles Pietro's troubles with more care and tenderness in a few paragraphs than anyone else has g

This review originally appeared on my blog, Shared Universe Reviews.

The second volume of Peter David’s tenure on X-Factor is actually half The Incredible Hulk and half X-Factor. There’s as much jade giant as there is green haired Polaris. Both series are written by Peter David and the members of X-Factor do appear in all six issues, but it made for an inconsistent read. The first two issues in the collection are The Incredible Hulk #390-391, parts one and two of a three part story. Issue #76 o

Collecting the crossover between "The Incredible Hulk" and "X-Factor", coincidentally both written by the fantastic Peter David. While I enjoyed the story, esp. the smart AND strong green Hulk, I'd grown accustomed to seeing Larry Stroman's X-Factor and Dale Keown (an amazing artist in his own right) didn't quite nail those zany mutants' look quite right. A small concern to be honest.

With most of the story taking place in a small dictator-rebel fought country, the topics brought up by this seemi

Peter David continues his early 90s X-Factor run (76-78). Never mind that the first half of this volume is the "War & Pieces" cross-over with his (superior) Incredible Hulk run (390-392). Dale McKeown's Hulk art is a far sight better than the much sketchier "fashion" shots of the X-Factor artists.

Storywise, there's not a huge amount of here here. Lots of brawling, lots of in-team bickering, plenty of trusty PAD jokes, but not a huge amount of character development here, and any plots that in

The couple of scenes with Sam and Rahne were great, but I so disliked the rest of it.

Wasn't a big fan of this one. It had it's moments, but dragged on overall, and felt too much like the old school action comics to me.
