As much as I hate Cosmic Book News, every once in a while, they get something good.
Here is an interview with Peter David about the end of X-Factor.
A few interesting tidbits...
CBN: So can you tell us just a hint or two about what will be happening to these characters we love in "End of X-Factor"?
PAD: After the end of “Hell on Earth War,” all the characters are spread all over reality. And I'm doing a series of stories that has them dealing with their individual situations.
CBN: Of course, the elephant in the room has always been the mysterious relationship between Longshot and Shatterstar. Will you solve this long-standing thread before the curtain falls?
PAD: I absolutely do. That's in issue #259. I got permission from editorial to tell explicitly what the relationship between the two of them is.
CBN: Now that it is ending, was "Hell on Earth War" all that you had envisioned over all these years?
PAD: Not really. I would have liked it to impact other titles in the Marvel line. But the opportunity to do a company-wide crossover didn't present itself.
CBN: Can you tell us anything about the new project you're working on for Marvel? It doesn't involve an X-Factor relaunch, does it?
I would happily read a company-wide crossover event helmed by PAD. It's a shame that it couldn't be worked out.
