    Despite the drastic change in course for the series, it’s as enjoyable as ever. Even if people aren’t hyped about this new direction for Iron Man, I have a feeling this series is important for Marvel’s new direction. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 1, 2016

    Alex Maleev's artwork is always at its best when he's drawing people, not super-heroes. His gritty but realistic style allows the audience to see the characters as people – vulnerable but determined, ordinary but accomplished. I enjoyed his work here, but I have to be honest, it's not as powerfully striking and convincing as what he offers up on and Bendis's creator-owned Scarlet series. Nevertheless, he and the writer demonstrate there's plenty of potential in a flashback S.H.I.E.L.D. series, including but not focusing on the more recognizable super-spies from the 1960s and '70s.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 29, 2016

    Even though not a lot happened in this issue, I found it enjoyable to read. It was a real quick read that provided a lot of information going forward with the story. This is one title I didn't really expect to like, but I seem to come away from every issue feeling satisfied with what I read. Read Full Review

    The reveal of Tony's biological mother's true identity was an important moment, to be sure. Unfortunately, it also means that an already-slow-moving story has to slow down even more to go back and show how Amanda Armstrong met Tony's father. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Aug 28, 2016

    International Iron Manwas the series that was supposed to determine that reason. Six issues in and we are still waiting. By itself this issue is a fine little story. If I did not know any better I could see it as a nice introduction into a small scale series surrounding a low level part time S.H.I.E.L.D. agent part time rock star. I was kind of getting excited to read that comic. When this is meant to be the introduction into who Tony Starks parents really are it is rather underwhelming. Everyone wants to hear the story about how their parents met until they do. Apparently that notion is also true for Tony Stark. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 24, 2016

    Don't make the same mistake I did, and spend your cash on a book that at least makes an attempt at going through the motions - because at the end of the day, Bendis and Maleev are creators who are capable of great things, but International Iron Man #6 is absolutely not it. Read Full Review
