X-Factor 259 by davidyardin X-Factor 259 by davidyardin
I had a lot of fun with this cover. Throwback to some old Arthur Adams/Whilce Portacio Longshot, Rob Liefeld New Mutants, and Jim Lee X-Men, mixed in with some of the newer X-Factor stuff.

Pencils, inks and colours all by me.

i was drawn in to this cover from a distance... mostly glimpsing Longshot. 
I know the secret now... I wish it wasn't so. It's kinda... confusing. Time Paradoxes.

Shame we have to get the forced cancelation of a great series to get answers to some of these long standing questions, but that being said, you are knocking it out of the park with these final covers.

Wow, awesome! I want that as a poster! :D
As a major Longshot/Shatterstar/Mojoverse fan, I hope this issue finally resolves all the mystery surrounding those two!

This cover will get me to the comic shop for the first time in forever. I'm equal parts excited about this storyline and nervous as to how PAD will handle the characters/plot.
