Issue 3 of X-Factor volume 3 was a Decimation tie-in story entitled The Big Bang, coming courtesy of one of my favourite comic scribes, Peter David. The synopsis from Marvel: With X-Factor’s forces divided between a client up on murder charges, riots in the streets of mutant town, and Monet doing a striptease, the only person who stands between a crippled Rictor and a would-be assassin is… Layla Miller?

In addition to handling the interior art chores, Ryan Sook also managed to come up with this stellar bit of cover art, featuring Guido Carosella aka Strong Guy and Rahne Sinclair aka Wolfsbane!
