I'm back to re-reading X-Force. I got side-tracked when I had to re-read 100 issues of X-Factor for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide (such a hardship, I know). Tony Daniel is on art now, and he's really the guy who defines X-Force-era Rictor and Shatterstar for me. I'm up to issue 34 -- which is really one of the quintessential Rictor issues. You get Rictor's messed up family history and the glory of Shatterstar revealing he learned Spanish just so he and Rictor could secretly communicate. Guh, boys, seriously. (All the issue 34 stuff also makes it even more tragic when power-less Rictor in X-Factor starts using guns, waah).

I think, after X-Force, I'll re-read PAD's awesome first run on X-Factor (and possibly all of X-Factor, because tiny!Rictor shows up in, like, issue 17 and is so wee and little and traumatised). I've been keeping up to date with Kathleen David's blog (PAD's wife).  For those comic fans who may not know, Peter David had a stroke a little over a week ago, and she's been keeping the fans (among others) updated on his progress. 

Then after X-Factor, I'll read the New Mutants, because I've owned the entire run for years and never actually read a single issue.  /confession
