  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Factor’ #2

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 04:30 pm GMT -4

    The return (or perhaps better word would be rebirth) of X-Factor in ‘All-New X-Factor’ #1 gave us a new X-Factor, a new conglomerate called Serval Industries, and a new pyscho experimenting on mutants.

    Posted Sunday, January 26th, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4

    There is so much crazy stuff going on in Jonathan Hickman’s ‘Avengers’ right now.
