    All this being said, the most confusing part of the entire issue was this name, Jerrica Benton. Is Tony truly fighting Jem from Jem and the Holograms? Is Jem at Marvel Comics now or was that just a snarky retort to make fun of the villain? I need to know Anyway, overall, I think Iron Man fans will enjoy the heck out of this issue and I feel that this creative teams enthusiasm and creativity shine through masterfully. I Am Iron Man #1 is an easy read for any age and any fan of the character at all levels. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Mar 1, 2023

    I AM IRON MAN #1is the earnest start to honest celebration of Tony Stark that isn't attempting to appropriate and regurgitate stories of the past. With their own narrative stepped deeply within the eras of Tony and an art style that idealizes the character, its a validating showcase of why Iron Man has room to still be a compelling hero in 2023.

    While this individual story might be too self-contained for its own magnitude, it does have me excited to see what else Murewa Ayodele and Dotun Akande have in store for future issues. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Mar 1, 2023

    Even if I dont totally understand whats happening here, it certainly looks great, with Akandes art doing a lot of the work to keep the reader visually hooked and wanting to keep reading. His lines are soft and expressionistic, even when depicting the man sometimes referred to as Shellhead in his aforementioned shell, and his lighting is gorgeous, giving a photorealistic feel to what are increasingly out-there and surreal images. Its really quite an impressive overall package for two relatively new names in the industry, and theyre definitely worth keeping tabs on moving forward. Read Full Review
