“Peter David is consistently one of the best writers to handle the X-Men universe each month.” – Jesse Schedeen of

“There's a lot of interesting concepts that David weaves into his writing, and the amazing thing is how fluidly he makes it not only work, but work magnificently.” – Adam Chapman of

“Peter David could write just about anything, and does just about every month with X-Factor. “ – Michael Colbert of

I've missed her. Jamie's delusions aren't the same.
