All New X-factor #3 Review

Sorry, there are no kittens inside this book, but Gambit is in it!

The Good

As pointless as the cover is, how can you not smile looking at it? Cover aside this series is starting to pick up steam and the agenda of Serval Industries is slowly being revealed. We all knew they weren't squeaky clean, but just how dirty are these guys really? I love the focus on Gambit as he, along with Quicksilver, has always been one of my favorite X-Men characters.

The Not So Good

The interior art is still "meh" in my opinion. Havok and Quicksilver's exchange at the beginning of the book was done well, but should have been saved for a few issues down the line. The recap page showing 3 unknown members of X-Factor is quite a disappointment as it lets you know 3 more people will join the line up and that takes away from the surprise factor of adding new members to the team. I'm not loving the new look of Gambit or Quicksilver, although that is more a personal preference for the classic look of the characters.

The Bottom Line

If you can look past the lackluster art and silly cover page then you will find a fantastic comic waiting for you to read it. Not quite the typical super hero book, this one has a focus more on the people behind the personas without going full blown behind the mask reality TV type of book. I implore you to pick this one up if you have any interest in Gambit, Quicksilver, or X-Factor as this series could quickly become your favorite read.
