Peter David Launching All-New X-Factor

all-new-x-factorPeter David will launch All-New X-Factor, his first new title since the cancellation of...well, of plain-old X-Factor.

The All-New Marvel NOW! title will kick off in early 2014 and feature art by Carmine Di Giandomenico, as you would expect from the previous teaser announcement that the pair were working on an X-title together.

"It picks up sort of directly after X-Factor #260," Peter David told CBR. "I dropped some reasonably obvious hints in that one as to what direction we were going."

The series will feature Polaris, Quicksilver and Gambit...among others as-yet-undisclosed. Unfortunately, no Strong Guy, because someone else beat David to him.

"Just because we've only announced three members doesn't mean the team is staying at that number," said David. "Over the first six issues, we will be bringing on three more members of the team."
