The Skinny on X-Factor

I've received further information on the Ryan Sook X-Factor art conundrum.  A well-placed source who'd rather stay on the downlow has confirmed that Sook and Dennis Calero will be splitting the art duties for the forseeable future, in order to keep the book on schedule.

While I'm certainly a little disapointed that it won't be wall-to-wall Sook action, it's probably a good move on Marvel's part to keep the book coming out on time.  One thing I would like to see, and it looks like this may be the case, is Sook and Calero alternating issues, rather than splitting the art duties within a single issue.  Their art styles are just too disimilar to blend smoothly.

So, there you go.  Sleep Is For Suckers' first breaking story.  And how crazy is it that I have an "unnamed source".  I feel like Bob Woodward.  Or Carl Bernstein. Whichever one Dustin Hoffman played, I guess.

Oh, I still haven't heard back from Sook himself, though.

Oh, and Layla Miller still sucks.

Yes, Layla Miller does indeed suck.

But the House of M 3 parody on Newgrounds is right, she has an extremely useful power. The mutant ability to advance slow-moving plotlines. She may suck royally, but Marvel needs her.

The problem with the alternating issues approach is that the tpb will look funny anyway, but yeah, I'd prefer it that way too. Still haven't picked up #2 though.

Yeah, the trades might look a little odd, but nothing is more jarring than artist-to-artist transitions within a single issue. It's the worst.
