X-FACTOR'S LAYLA MILLER

Look for Layla Miller to have a codename by the end of X-Factor #6.

On Thursday, Marvel Comics announced that the mystery of Layla Miller will be revealed in the issue.

X-Factor #6, written by Peter David, with art by Dennis Calero and Jose Villarrubia, will go on sale on April 26.

Here's how Marvel describes the story, titled "The Bufferfly Defect."

"We first caught a glimpse of Layla Miller in the House of M, but what is revealed about her is something that neither X-Factor nor its faithful readers could ever have expected.

"Plus, witness the aftermath of Sirynıs brutal confrontation from last issue, Guido decides to go jogging, and an uninvited and unexpected doctor makes a house call."

Davis said that Mr. Tryp's connection with Jamie Madrox will be made evident in X-Factor #7.

CYBERFORCE #1 SELLS OUT

Top Cow Productions has announced that all three covers of Cyberforce #1 have sold out.

According to Top Cow, it will " will closely monitor the market and retailer demand to determine if a second print will be forthcoming."

The series' relaunch is written by Ron Marz, with art by Pat Lee.

"While it's absolutely gratifying to have a sell-out, especially less than a week after issue #1 went on sale, we're truthfully just getting started," Marz said. "Pat and I both feel like we're only beginning to hit our stride on Cyberforce, so the best is definitely yet to come as the rest of the first story arc unfolds."

The second issue will be in stores on April 19 and features covers by Lee and Marc Silvestri.

TIGHTLIP'S MONSTER SQUAD

TightLip Entertainment has announced Monster Squad as its third title, following Freedom Three and Deep Blue.

The cover of Monster Squad #1 pays homage to Peter Costanza.

"Peter Costanza gave me an appetite for comic book art and stories back during his era," Monster Squad writer Rick Olney said. "Are there any artists today that can boldly assert that? I think it is debatable. Today's artists, with few exception, cater to what they're told is the style and approach to maintaining a readership within a title. Least wise in the larger venue of making comic books."

The cover is penciled by Cesar Feliciano, with inks by Jim Tournas and colors by Dash martin.

Here's how TightLip describes the book:

"The mysterious leader of Monster Squad, Magnus Grimoire, has gathered the misunderstood monsters: Howler, Merlin, Frankenborg, Kid Mummy, Gargirl and the Spook to save mankind...and along the way find their own humanity."

The first issue is targeted for this summer.
