    This pair of stories were executed very well and look spectacular. The narration, especially during the first story, was excellently written and definitely pulled you into the conflict between Jocasta, X-52, and Machine Man. The artwork was very eye-catching and the use of the colors was very vibrant. The storyline for the second narrative was a little fractured but overall it was crafted well. These stories do bring a nicer, more enriched exterior background to the overall 2020 Iron Man arc. Read Full Review

    Over all, without spoiling things, this book gets a happy ending and warms my heart as a Machine Man fan. Christos Gage writes the character fantastically well and I would love to see another miniseries from this team, especially with Andy MacDonald on art and Dono Sanchez-Almara on colors. This book was a ton of fun and worth bearing the name of Machine Man for what has proved to be a VERY good event so far. Read Full Review

Will Aaron succeed? Read Full Review

    Combining explosions, robot wars and deep philosophical moments, this book is a very good read, especially (but not exclusively) if you remember the comics it's referencing. Read Full Review

    Perhaps if I was 9 with a belly full of cereal I'd be gripped by this, but as it stands now it lacks much appeal. Read Full Review
