Leonard Kirk takes over as artist on X-Factor in September

Madrox by Leonard Kirk

If you saw Marvel’s September solicitations yesterday you might have noticed Leonard Kirk’s name in the X-Factor listing. The artist confirms on his blog that he is working on the book now with his former Supergirl collaborator, writer Peter David. And he shares a whole bunch of sketches of the characters from the book, such as the above Madrox; head over there to check them out.



ehh cool.

Cool. I enjoyed Kirk’s work on Atlas, MI13, and Supergirl, and we already know he and PAD are a good fit.

The team with no last name, back together again.

Not the entire team, Livewire. But Leonard is going to ink himself, so no work for my husband (again)…

I hope this lasts. X-Factor is one of Marvel’s best written comics, but it suffers from inconsistent art and high turnover.

Kirk’s awesome, but I hope that italian lady they have drawing the book now lands somewhere good. She’s awesome.

Yeah, saw his name and was really pleased! Glad to hear it more than just a one off!

And also nice to see Kirk continuing to work with amazing writers – Johns, Parker, Cornell and David (again!)
