    With long running series some volumes won't be as good as others. This was is solid but nothing special. There's a solo issue of Layla being her and getting to see her views of the world. How she sees the world and how her actions might effect others. It's pretty good issue and the best one by far. The rest is okay. Some cute moments with dating moments. Some decent fights between the new baddies. And...that's basically it.

    This books gets 5 stars for the Run, Layla, Run issue alone. That is a great standalone story that gives real insight into the mysterious Layla Miller, plays cleverly with the nature of fate, and how it has both personal and impersonal consequences for Layla, not to mention certain members of the X-Factor team. A real standout in an excellent run.

The rest of the collection is more of the same, which is a damn good thing - Peter David's wit and skill with dialogue, a focus on character amongst the action, and taking timeout to really say something about our key players. I love this series. Can't wait to read the rest of it.

    By this point, most of the team have come back from the dead minus a soul, are massively traumatised by bearing a monstrous demigod, have broken the web of fate, or are just arseholes. So this volume tries to get them a little fixed by way of road trips, Run Lola Run pastiches (with a sprinkling of All The Myriad Ways), dates and scraps. Perhaps inevitably, its success is limited, but there's some good snark along the way. "You're the one I blame for it. Your management style is chaotic."

    Although I enjoy some of his puns, Peter David is often at his best when he's being serious about character development. This collection stands out among the later X-Factor books, as he examines Wolfsbane, Banshee, and Layla Miller in depth, while keeping the rest of the cast in the background. The strongest issue in the volume is the final one, focusing on Layla trying to keep her timeline flowing in her preferred direction now that she's made one major change.

The strongest issue in the volume is the final one, focusing on Layla trying to keep her timeline flowing in her preferred direction now that she's made one major change. None of the stories in this collection offer resolution (hence "Road To Redemption" and not "Actual Redemption", but they push the characters in interesting ways. Unlike the volumes that surround it, I think you could read just this volume, and still enjoy it. But why would you then the beginning of this run is So Excellent.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was some of the best in the series I love X-factor and it never fails to strike a relevant nerve for me. I specifically liked how the writer dealt with the reality of Rahne coming to terms with the loss of a child. The Run Layla Run portion definitely a variation on run Lola run but more power to the writer for seeing a story that was not originally a comic and seeing that there was a connection that definitely works.

I liked this story so much I read it twice.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2017/18... Peter David continues his fantastic run on one of the best x-titles there is. I *loved* the Run, Layla, Run issue. This series is just so good...

    As the likes of Banshee (Siryn) and Rahne seek redemption, Layla seeks answers about herself. OK, yet again... it's the dialogue that holds the reader in this series. 7 out of 12.

    We see some progression in Rahne's character arc, and I must admit that Havok & Polaris' interaction with Madrox & Terry (respectively) are fun. And I absolutely love this book's cover. In the first part of this volume, Rahne comes to terms with some of her past choices and decides to do something about them. She takes a leave of absence from X-Factor and, accompanied by Rictor & Shatterstar, she goes off to find her son whom she abandoned after giving birth to him at the end of X-Factor: Hard L We see some progression in Rahne's character arc, and I must admit that Havok & Polaris' interaction with Madrox & Terry (respectively) are fun.

She takes a leave of absence from X-Factor and, accompanied by Rictor & Shatterstar, she goes off to find her son whom she abandoned after giving birth to him at the end of X-Factor: Hard Labor. I really liked the last issue of this collection, in which Layla is running to save a woman on a ledge. While running from point A to point B, we get this interior monologue about the impact our actions (or inactions) have on the future, and we see some of the possible outcomes to the situations she comes across (on her way to save the jumper). With only 4 issues collected in this trade [okay - sometimes 5 issues] (like the ones before and the ones to be released later on), it seems Marvel is really milking it and trying to get the most money out of its readers. On the other hand, it also means that the wait-for-trade readers (such as myself) don't have to wait as long for the next collection. Also, another plus, is that the different artists from one volume to the next (heck, sometimes even from issue to issue!) are not a concern at this point, as the quality of the art is always consistently good. Next up: X-Factor, Vol. 18: Breaking Points.

    Theresa and Polaris taking Rahne on a girls Road trip was a nice story. It was nice to see Lorna and Terry being all buddy buddy. Lorna's tough love with Rahne was great! Reverend Madrox is always WONDERFUL! His talk with Rahne really resonated with me so much!!! <3 Great art in that issue! I think Neil Edwards and Karl Kesel did amazing together. Havok and Jamie have very different leading styles. It's SUPER sweet how supportive Rictor and Shatterstar are to Wolfsbane!

That really is an interesting power for her. Poor Guido and Monet though. Neither is in the bad there. This was a cool volume! "Blame is pointless without forgiveness. Punishment is pointless without learning from it and moving on." Such a good point about life!!! <3

    This collects issues #237-240 -- and, yes, that is only 4 issues, which is an annoying trend I'm seeing from more and more comic book companies for their TPBs. But part of what drives that in this case is how the story-lines fall together.

All of that with plenty of soap opera and wry wit in-between, and some decent artwork. Worth picking up.

    David does a nice job here of creating stories that are relatively self-contained while still continuing the soap operatic X-Factor saga. The high point is the final issue and its focus on Layla — what she’s done, what she sees now, and what her goals are. It’s entirely englightening. The Rahne focus in the first issue is good too, especially since it responds to issues from X-Force. The rest of the story is OK, with some battle with an Irish deity or something.

    While there are few more volumes left in this series one can see Peter David laying the groundwork for some of the final stories. Monet's and Guido's date, Layla no longer being the perfect "one who kows" Rahine's issues about religion and her child, well hell everyone has issues in X-Factor. They key is that they keep trying to do the right thing even when they are falling apart. A collection of small stories make up this trade. You won't be overwhelmed, but ideally entertained.

    Another X-Factor collection where I enjoyed the stories and the art was a mixed bag (I liked the issues pencilled by Neal Edwards fine, but really did not care for those pencilled by Paul Davidson). And it is hideously overpriced: this book collects 4 comics that cost $2.99 each but costs $16.99. I do prefer to have books over issues, but $5 is a high premium to pay. It seems Marvel has stopped bothering to include an older, vaguely-related issue to pad the page count.

    The final issue in the collection, Run Layla Run, is my favorite. Very touching. I was underwhelmed with the road trip story. That story could have been hugely improved with input from a woman. It was a disservice to the pain Rahne is going through and the depth of her story to throw in that cliche road trip crap. If it weren't for Run Layla Run, I would've only given this collection 3 stars. The final issue in the collection, Run Layla Run, is my favorite. Very touching.

    The girls go on a road trip to help Rahne. Layla has a very busy day. Oh and there is another Banshee. I really liked the road trip story. The running story with different possibilities was really clever and thought provoking. A good read.

    The Strong Guy and Rahne are developed more during these episodes. Good stories with a bit of a filler and starting point feeling.

    I really enjoyed this book because it had a lot of Layla Miller and Jamie moments, which they are my favorite characters. This series is by far my favorite and it will be hard to beat it!
