All-New X-Factor, Vol. 2: Change of Decay Reviews

    The bottom line is this book isn't living up to its potential. I really like this roster. Pietro, Lorna, and Remy especially are just stars that should be able to carry this book to the moon and back. I'll admit, I'm new to X-Factor (though with "All-New" in the title, I feel like that is encouraged), so maybe this has always been the formula. It just feels loose to me. There's a mission, sure, but it hardly has any foundation, and once it is underway, it simply spirals out of control. There's nothing that explains why half of the events are significant, they just are. From what I've read about Peter David's run on the last X-Factor volume, it was a lot more about the team. Sure, characters like Lorna get a lot of time on panel, but I don't feel like I know anything about her. The only one getting that so far is Pietro, but it's almost exclusively with characters outside of the cast. His meetings with Havok are frustrating (since they really just don't feel like Havok to me) and then suddenly there's a scene with his daughter with what seems like it should be a big moment, but it's tied to something from an entirely different series. There's just not enough here yet for anything to make an impact. Maybe it's going to be a slow burn, but I'm already impatient, which isn't a good sign. Then there are the other characters. Cypher, Danger, and Warlock I don't get. I'm still not sure how Danger went from Cyclops' team to this one and I don't know much of anything g about the other two so far. Harrison Snow is drab and another cookie cutter mundane business type who just begs not to be trusted. Linda isn't much better. I can already see her reacting to Snow's betrayal. I'll be shocked if it doesn't happen. All that said, it's decent. The story moves well, I like the dialogue, and the action works. It just isn't using its characters like it could. Then the art by DiGiandomenico is...there. Kris Anka's does the covers and it just feels bait and switch-y because Anka's is so stunning and DiGi's is less crisp or distinct or even visually appealing. It works, I just would rather have Anka. Anyway, it's worth a try, but I'm not ready to sing its praises. I'm also not totally sure I'll even get the next volume.

    Como disfruté en este tomo. Peter David no saca el pie del acelerador en ningún momento y nos regala a una mutante nueva y a un villano que, aunque aparece en pocas páginas, resulta tan interesante como si ya lo conociéramos desde hace varios números. Encima se las arregla para denunciar el racismo de manera visceral y sin concesiones.Gambito mandándose cagadas como solo él se las podría mandar, diálogos muy divertidos entre Warlock, Peligro y Cifra, Polaris con los ovarios bien puestos en todo momento y un monólogo de Pietro para redimirse de su pasado frente a todo el mundo, con un final de emotivo y encuentro con su hija.Queda un solo tomo de esta gran serie. Una lástima que no sean más.

    I love Peter David. Even though the main storyline in this one wasn't as good as the first volume, he nails it with the characters and their relationships with each other.

    I'm enjoying seeing more of Polaris and a few other mutants that I haven't seen much of recently and I'm liking the slow burn of figuring out what the company they're working for is up to, but on the other hand I haven't seen a lot of interesting character development or growth.

    Vol. 2 (#7 a #12)Y la historia se vuelve cada vez mejor. En el segundo volumen ya vemos que el X-Factor ya tiene a todo sus integrantes (Cypher y Warlock como las últimas adquisiciones) y que ¡finalmente! están haciendo el bien que a ellos les parece. Siguen ligados a Serval Industries sí, pero no actúan pura y exclusivamente para su beneficio (gracias Gambit por abrirle los ojos a Polaris). Vemos un poco más de Danger, en cuanto a su comportamiento y sí, la adoré. Me encanta que dado que es un bot no tiene "pelos en la lengua" y dice las cosas como son. Y las incorporaciones de Cypher y Warlock al team me encantan, me encantan y me encantan. Cypher es ese personaje al que queres abrazar hasta que deje de sentirse mal (sí) y Warlock... no tengo palabras para describir lo genial que es, quiero decir es adorable y la interacción que tiene con Danger es algo que te hace decir "estoy sintiendo ternura por robots", pero es que ¡sí!. Siento que mi querida Polaris todavía no se da cuenta de algunas cosas y que confía demasiado en Harrison vamos, ella todavía no sabe que tiene un nanobot en el ojo!!!!!!!! Eso no es para nada agradable querida, y también creo que Gambit todavía no se siente muy cómodo con Harrison, tengo la leve sensación de que sospecha de algo (y no sería el único).En este vol. podemos apreciar mucho más a Pietro, pero MUCHO más. Vemos como se siente, al desligarse de los Avengers, y al aceptar los errores de su pasado (view spoiler)[ que le da la posibilidad de que Luna, su hija, lo perdone y respete una vez más. ¡La aparición de Luna fue la gota que rebalsó el vaso de mi amor por Pietro! (hide spoiler)]. Las cinco merecidas estrellas (historia y gráficos)se van con este vol. ¿Qué más para decir? Ya estoy empezando el Vol.3

    Another strong graphic novel by Peter David and Carmine Di Giandomenico! The humor and action continue from the previous graphic novel and the art is as strong as ever. Di Giandomenico's artwork shines in the action sequences, especially when drawing Quicksilver. Speaking of Quicksilver, he really takes over this book. David's writing of the "pouty speedster" takes the shine away from Gambit and the other members. There is a touching moment in the book when Pietro makes a statement about his half-sister Dorna... You'll have to read it to see it. Family is important to him, especially because his family was so messed up. Very few authors touch on that and David hit one out of the park here.I don't want to say much to hide the spoilers, but I highly recommend the book anyway. It reads like some of David's best work with action that sucks you in, humor that keeps you smirking, and a human element that really makes you feel for the characters.All-New X-Factor was gone WAY too soon. I'm actually upset at myself for not reading it when it first came out, but glad I can support the release through the graphic novels.

    How many issues of X-factor has Peter David written? It has been decades at this point, right, where he has written Jamie Madrox, Polaris, Havoc and Quicksilver. Sure, there have been other team mates thrown in, over the years, but he has really given those four characters unique voices and personalities. He continues with this newest incarnation of the team, showing us the next chapter in Quicksilver and Polaris' story. As far as appeal goes, they are probably two of the characters least likely to be on anyone's favorite mutant list. Sure, everyone loves the Quicksilver scene in the days of future past movie, but he is usually the biggest Prick you can find on a super hero team. Both Polaris and quicksilver get to shine in this volume. In the very end of the book, Quicksilver has a very touching moment, which is one of the best I have read in a comic in years.

    Even better than the first volume. For the most part, it's the same witty superhero adventures you can expect from a talent like Peter David. And then issue 12 comes along and it goes from a 4 star review to a 5. This issue has not action and is really just an epilogue for the story before it. But it's also so much more than that. There are so many wonderful moments between the characters, and is so emotionally on point, that if you aren't moved at least a little bit (even if you aren't familiar with the history of the characters), you have something missing in your soul. David writes all of these characters beautifully, and it's a shame it seems there will only be one more trade after this. I'll have to get my Peter David fix elsewhere.

    *Read the description/synopsis*Verdict: Shows how the team handles an opponent, Quicksilver spying for Avengers (then quit to be in support to his sister Polaris) and him dealing with his conscience with his past "crimes" makes it a good read. With their employer Snow looking like he got plans and him convincing Gambit that it's ok him sleeping with his wife making me think Snow is an evil villain in disguise.The team going public might be a bad thing or not but we will see in the next volume. Giandomenico continues on art duties and hopefully stays with Peter David until he is done with the story.

    Liking this more than I thought I would.Feels like a bunch of elements that shouldn't work, but somehow it clicks.PAD takes a bunch of X-characters that nobody else seems to care about and fleshes them out and creates a team dynamic that really works.Like how the team exists on the fringe of the X-titles and so can do their own thing, while occasionally dipping its toe into the bigger stuff happening out there.Only gripe is knowing that it got canceled and ever issue I read means there's one less to enjoy.Plus, I'm pretty sick of the whole 'the corporate guy is up to something thread'. PAD hasn't made him interesting enough that the cliche' isn't annoying and feels weak.

    No me gustó tanto como el , quizás, pero promedio para arriba porque tanto los diálogos como los dibujos siguen siendo geniales y porque me encantó la incorporación de Warlock y Danger y, sobre todo, su interacción. Ahora veo si me mando el tercer y último tomo de una o le pego una ojeada antes a "Axis", ya que por el título todo indica que el evento es más o menos necesario a la hora de poner en contexto el final de la serie.

    3,5La idea de que una empresa cree un equipo de Super-Héroes para mejorar su imagen pública es un poco... rara.Esta decisión es muy ambigua, pues así como tener Super-Héroes en que representen a la empresa puede ser bueno también tiene sus consecuencias.Me gusta que la serie use personajes mutantes de esos que casi nunca se oye hablar de ellos. Como Cypher!

    I still don't feel like David has made the characters in this X-Factor his own, and I feel like I've seen the same storytelling for 20 years, but despite that all this is another fun book. There are people to save and repercussions to be had over superheroing. I think the best part of it is Quicksilver, who David has of course written before, but I sort of like his Gambit and his Danger as well.

    I've always enjoyed Peter David's X-Factor books and his work in general but this series is just bad. There's none of his trademark humor. The art design and coloring are awful. I've never seen such a garish use of color in a comic. All the yellow and orange is an eyesore and don't do Carmine Di Giandomenico's art any favors. His line drawings look best with a darker, moodier palette.

    A very well written series of book - I am continually impressed by the work of Peter David. The art is stylized some, but is pleasant. Each of the characters feels 3 dimensional and interesting. The only sad thing for me is understanding that this series was cancelled.

    It was okay. The writing was okay, the art could have been better. It just wasn't all that interesting. Basically plot driven and especially well paced. The characters aren't used all that well. It's hard to believe it's the same author as previous X-factor books. 2.5 of 5.

    the larger overarching story seems awfully slow and uninteresting. by contrast, the bew character seems interesting. the problem is that there are too many characters.

    It only took about 6 issues for David to get this title humming along. Excellent art and the usual, very human stories courtesy of Peter David. Eagerly looking forward to the next volume.
