    A great issue that explores the inner workings of characters while progressing the bigger story. Read Full Review

    Infamous Iron Man is one of the best comics on the market today. Bendis has taken the Reed Richards/Doom relationship (as well as the Doom/Stark one) and turned them upside down, shook them up, and produced a great story. Let's hope it lasts. Read Full Review

    INFAMOUS IRON MAN #8 is one of the strongest issues in this series. Bendis does an excellent job pacing his plot with dialogue-heavy scenes, and the artwork of Maleev and Hollingsworth assist the tension amongst characters well. This issue is a must. Read Full Review

    Surprise, surprise. The latest chapter of Infamous Iron Man is another slow, methodical read. But more than ever, the strong characterization is making up for the glacial story pace. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure how long Marvel can keep Doom in the role of one of it's biggest named heroes, but if Victor's visions are to be believed Marvel may have other ideas for the character rather than simply returning him to his old status once this arc plays out. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark May 26, 2017

    Alex Maleev's art continues to be criminally underappreciated. What he lacks in flash he makes up for in subtle character work and phenomenal acting. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson May 27, 2017

    It was after I finally lost interest in his Avengers comics a few years ago that I thought I'd outgrown Brian Michael Bendis's writing. While I'd considered his take on the Avengers sharp at first, and edge dulled, and I wasn't taken with All New X-Men either. I never bothered with his Guardians of the Galaxy. But then I realized, I still loved Bendis's writing, and still do. Spider-Man, Invincible Iron Man, Jessica Jones... these were among my favorite Marvel titles. And Scarlet – oh, Scarlet, one of the finest modern comics that I fear is sadly overlooked due to Bendis's 21st century rep as the Man from Marvel. I realized Bendis's writing is as great as ever, when it's more focused. Team books aren't his fort. Solo titles are where it's at for this particular writer, and I'll continue to follow his work in that regard. Read Full Review
