The S Factor #4 Review
There is a panel at the top of page five that shows the crew of The S Factor running away from what is happening. The looks on their faces are priceless. Panda did an excellent job with character expression in this series. There are so many pages with great facial expressions.
One thing that I love about supervillains is that they often embody the characteristics they claim to hate. They often see their cause as righteous, and their downfall is typically attributed to their hubris. This definitely comes into play in the final issue of The S Factor.
After the battle, we see all of the superheros coming together to decide what to do next. I really loved this scene because the heroes are all wearing grey sweatshirts and sweatpants. This is very different than the mostly nude outfits they had to wear on The S Factor. London and Panda really know how to juxtapose characters and themes. This is one of my favorite examples of this.
I really can’t express how much I enjoyed reading this series. Those who know me know that I am not a huge fan of superhero stories. However, The S Factor had all the right pieces to make me fall in love with it.
I am sad to see this series end, but I am also glad that it did. A problem with many comic books is that they drag on for long periods of time. In my opinion, this makes it difficult for the creators to keep the impact of the themes and ideas in the story.
The S Factor doesn’t have this problem. This four-issue series delivers its message in a very concise and powerful manner. Everything comes full-circle while the ideas are still fresh and bouncing around our heads.
London and Panda really knocked it out of the park with this series. If I wasn’t a huge fan before, I would definitely be one now. The S Factor is a must-read for anyone into superhero comics, offbeat comics, and any comic that has a strong message. Superheroes have been around forever, but it takes talented creators like London and Panda to bring them into the modern age.
