In August, we welcome a third title to our survey of the X-Men franchise, as we finally reach the launch of the X-Men spinoff X-Factor in an otherwise straightforward month. No annuals, no specials; just four straight weeks of Uncanny X-Men, New Mutants and X-Factor fun.
(Incidentally, I'll discuss the final two issues of Secret Wars II in contemporaneous X-Men or New Mutants posts, as I don't think the events of those issues have enough bearing on the X-Men narrative to warrant their own post).
