I will do you great injustice if I spoil what happens in X-Factor #39, so all I can tell you is it will make you go “HOLYSHITOHMYGODWHATTHEFUCK?!” Seriously.
I was anticipating the payoff to the whole Madrox-Siryn baby story because really, after the whole Messiah Complex business, a birth in the mutant books is a huge deal. I was extremely curious about Peter David’s plans for Madrox and Siryn’s child and hooooboy was I shocked. SHOCKED I tells ya!
Seriously, I can’t remember the last time a comic made me go “OH. MY. GOD.” over and over until I got sick of my own voice. Peter David is sick. SICK! He is one sick mudda! And I love him.
After several issues of bad art and boring stories, X-Factor is back on top of my must-read list. If you haven’t read Peter David’s X-Factor before, I think now is the time to start doing so. Start with this issue.
On a final note, let me just say that whatever you’re thinking about the fate of Madrox and Siryn’s baby, IT’S WRONG. You will not see shit coming. This is how comics should be done in this financially troubled times. More bang for your buck, baby. More bang for your buck.
