X-Factor #250

Marvel Comics

Marvel Says: A year of X-FACTOR stories culminates here in the first part of ‘HELL ON EARTH WAR’! The various Hell lords battle for domination in a war that was triggered by the seven billionth soul born on Earth, and only X-Factor can avoid the entire world going up in flames! This is the beginning of the end for X-Factor as you know it!

Vince Says: To begin with, this is the culmination of a story Peter David has been building toward for what feels like forever. On a more personal note, Peter David suffered a stroke last month. From his work on X-Factor, both in recent years and back in the 90s, as well as his iconic run on Incredible Hulk and a multitude of other fantastic comics over the years, David is someone I greatly admire and respect. David and his family could definitely use the support, both financially and emotionally, from this issue selling well, and we should all take time to appreciate his work.
