totally agree with you, even in an interview he tried to excuse the low sales on characters and fans not being into the long burn storys that they only want events and quick resolution's, which i kind of agree with that statement but still take responsibility, even the previous X-Factor run he blamed an artist for getting it canceled

About previous X-Factor and artist story I agrre that it was really problem with artist.

They had strong stable sales for noir book with good art and then they change artist and because his art it was impossible to read this book. 30% of readers went away. Art were much worse then in Spurriers Legacy and it was light and not noir. It really destroyed this book.

As for all-new the main problem was writing. You just can`t explain third act of story in bubble thoughts in 1 last page

yeah but the legacy art was terrible, me personally i wasnt a big fan of Legion but the writing was so good it kept me invested, im sure the bad art is to blame for loseing numbers but if his writing was good enough people wouldn't care, it had the fans and the artist didnt stay on the book so those readers that went away would have come back when the artist left, PAD who i am a fan of never takes responsibility he blames everyone else even fans

*proceeds to take this with an entire salt mine*

Oh look, Extraordinary #10 features one of the X-Men becoming a Horseman---gee, I wonder who that could possibly be!  ::)

It is interesting that Uncanny #7 seems to have a shoutout (possibly a retread?) of the Morlock Massacre, though.....

Can they free the Shi'ar from the deadly grip of the Phalanx and return to Earth in one piece? Meanwhile, another team grapples with the Kingpin and Sebastian Shaw over a possible cure for the Legacy Virus! Plus: Flash back with Rachel Summers and Magneto, witness a furious Marrow take on Spider-Man, and meet the mighty Maggott! Collecting UNCANNY X-MEN (1981) #341-350 and #-1, and X-MEN (1991) #62-64 and #-1.

The cover is okay to me. I don't like the markings on Gambit's knuckles.
