Jump on people.

Review for X-Factor #224.1 
 
The Story: Madrox and Layla visit where Jamie used to live and gets to know the family who lives there. While the rest of the team is fighting a demon who pretends to be an old lady. 
 
The Good: PAD writes a very good jumping on issue for new readers. The way he does it is give exposition to characters that know nothing of our protagonists. As any other PAD comic there well placed humour here, also Layla is really creepy here when she says "You should have hid better". Also the action is well integrated. And the last page was very suprising to me. 
 
The Bad: I have been reading this series since issue #213 so this wasn't really needed for me. 
 
The Verdict: Very well written issue wich does a good job at explaining the characters powers and the backstory for the team leader. So if you want to read X-Factor (and you should) then buy this issue.

Thanks for the review. :D

    Let me start of by saying that I've really enjoyed the "Point One" issue from Marvel this year.  They did exactly what we were told they were going to do, gave easy jumping on points for new readers while also moving forward with the storyline for the veteran fans.  Now of course some have been better then other, and for the most part the contained stories have been pretty weak, but they did their job and did it well!  I particularly enjoyed the Uncanny X-men Point One issue where Magneto ...
