are we ever going to see rictor and shatterstar having sex again? I mean, without some cockblock team member killing the moment?

I love the solicitation info! "...will change the face of X-Factor FOREVER!". How many times in just the last year have they said that? Ha ha! Anyway, great job on the cover! Powerful stuff!

Truly great cover. Colours look very interesting too. Reminds me a little bit of a Steranko's work from Lorna's first appearance. Not sure if that's deliberate but it certainly looks cool. I'm just hoping this story doesn't lead to another retcon of Lorna's connection to Magneto, so much untapped potential there.

Did you colour it in photoshop or illustrator?

Thank you. If you're seeing influences from other artists, I wasn't intentionally going for that, this is just what came out on the deadline. This was pencilled and inked traditionally, then coloured in Photoshop

OK, this got to be an homage to Bernard Brick's series of greenhaired crying women from his Kathmandu period! Sadly he passed away 20 years later from Puberculosis.

"Driven insane" totally sounds like Lorna. Nice texture on Magneto's edges and damn that face.

Shut your mouth!!! That is the sickest Lorna cover in a very long time. David, you are making the outsides better than the insides. Would love to see you do a one shot or annual, especially featuring Polaris. You are truly amazing man.

Thanks. I don't think Marvel are doing one shots or minis at the moment and I doubt they'll get me for an annual either, at least not for X-Factor. :\
