A much tighter and better told story than the previous volume. X-Factor has relocated to NYC and taken back up its primary role of being a detective agency. of course how does one find an invisible woman? A combination of technology and psychometry enables the team to solve the case. Along the way very sharp dialogue is provided for Valeria Richards, and Victor von Doom (best portrayal of Doom since Warren Ellis).

Recommended to Federiken by: Lo anterior.
No tan bueno como la saga anterior pero mejor que la siguiente, que no llegué a terminar por un capítulo. Y mucho mejor que otros comics Marvel contemporáneos. Lástima la sub-trama de Monet y Guido en Sudamérica, que es bastante entretenida pero me molesta justamente porque transcurre en esa selva indefinida que es "Sudamérica" y que ni siquiera termina en este tomo.

Is there a more tired, empty, and mined-out superhero team than the Fantastic Four? They long ago passed the divide between 'classic' and simply 'old', and teaming them up with the anonymous collection of third-stringers that comprise X-Factor Investigations makes for a story that not even a writer as good as Peter David can breathe life into.

It's the bog-standard FF conglomeration of Ben Grimm getting angry and flying off the handle, Reed Richards being replaced by a double and nobody noticing

This series gets better with every volume! :D This story is AMAZING and the art fits it well! It was great how they wove the Fantastic Four and Doctor Doom into this story. Valeria is a fascinating and creepy child. Her and Layla Miller should hangout. Shatterstar's fight with the Thing was AWESOME! I reread it a few times it was so good! Longshot's power's get more and more interesting. Also, hungover Longshot is great. Monet, Shatterstar and the Thing going off to fight Doom head on was great! ...more

What David has going for him is his complete and total grasp on the characters in this book. That, and he has the best cast out of any current X-book being published. He's pile up all of the misfits with nowhere else to go and turned them into the most fun and entertaining read on the X side of Marvel Comics.

What pushes this volume up a notch is an artist who understands what it takes to tell a story. Although the art is heavy on Photoshop for the finished pages, it is light years ahead of the

iFanboy, my favorite podcast, always encourages people to just jump in and try new comic series. Since I've had an itch to get into X-Men with First Class being so good, I thought I would give X-Factor a shot. First off, Peter David can write some good dialogue. There are moments that are clunky, but for every one of those there is a killer piece of banter. As far as the story goes, I really enjoyed reading about the Fantastic Four and X-Factor together. Since I've seen the movies, I knew who th ...more

Fino ad ora quello il ciclo che mi ha convinto di meno ma credo sia dovuto alla mia mal celata insofferenza verso i FF

I'm only losing interest in this title because of the long wait between volumes. Id switch to online digital comics if Marvel would wise the fuck up and sell them that way at decent cost. X-FACTOR collections of late have also defied logic in their contents, breaking stories across multiple volumes and thus making it that much harder to remember what I was reading earlier.

Some nice characterization for the X-Factor team and for Valerie. However, there's too much crossover with other Marvel heroes for this volume to really stand out, and I'm pretty annoyed by the Guido & Monet story stopping in the middle after a pretty thin volume.

It was ok. The series is starting to get dull ever since that Layla showed up ... BORING! Hopefully now that Havok and Polaris are on the team, it will get better.

The writing was above average but the art was well below.

But the title alone is worth it, amIright? :)

Another fun volume. Cansino's art isn't great, but David's writing is crisp as ever.

I got distracted and kept waiting for Deadpool to show up. Sadly he didn't.
