    The last plot line ended with more of a whimper than a bang, but this issue gives us high hopes that Bendis can turn things around. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Terrence Sage Feb 4, 2016

    The second arc of Invincible Iron Man kicks off, and Bendis has switched gears to deliver not a shiny, crystal clear, Dave Marquez drawn adventure of magic and exorcism, but a technology based gripping noir mystery that will only take Iron Man and company into a different genre's territory with exciting results.

    Invincible Iron Man may have lost its superstar artist, but Bendis is not slowing down with the compelling characters and interesting story. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Jonathan Helmke Feb 8, 2016

    The writing is phenomenal on Bendis' part. The art style had a drastic jump from last month when Marquez and Ponsor were illustrating the story. This month we have Deodato and Martin drawing our story, and honestly, I'm not that big of a fan. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 4, 2016

    David Marquez dropped the mic with the first five issues of this series, and that's not an easy act to follow by any stretch. Unfortunately, the decision to bring Mike Deodato, Jr. on board for the second arc means that Invincible Iron Man looks like a fundamentally different comic Read Full Review

    Invincible Iron Man #6 gets the second arc off to a solid start as “The War Machines” gives us a mysterious tale of espionage. The creative team also allow for some thrilling character development, as despite there being little of real excitement, there was more than enough to leave me eager to dive into the next installment.

    ComicList - Richard Gratton May 21, 2016

    Invincible Iron Man #6 is a solid start to a new story arc that leaves me intrigued and wanting more. Is it a fantastic issue? No, but it's definitely worth the read. I prefer Marquez and Ferry's art, but Mike Deodato and Frank Martin are well suited to the clandestine tone of this story arc. And for me, the ongoing Doom subplot is enough of a draw to keep me coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 4, 2016

    Invincible Iron Man #6 is not a bad comic, but it is a downgrade from what we've seen in the series so far. The writing and art battle to control the tone of the comic, and Bendis' work is the strongest part of the equation. Deodato's work actually detracted from the story for me, which hurts the issue on the whole. From a character & writing perspective this is still a must-read for me, but I'll be looking for stronger artwork in issue #7. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Kyle Pitman Feb 5, 2016

    While Invincible Iron Man #6 " and the entire previous arc " transformed me into a Shellhead, I'm just not the biggest fan of this run's particular style or writing. I'll be keeping a finger on this one's pulse to stay in the know, but I'll most likely delve into Stark's back catalogue to get my fix. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Nov 30, -0001

    I want to love Invincible Iron Man. I purchase each issue faithfully. I set it at the top of my teetering stack of "must-reads", and I open it with enthusiastic anticipation every single time. And somehow, with each successive issue, I find myself deflated. Just a little bit. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Feb 4, 2016

    Bendis' usage of a newly-handsome and well-coiffed Victor Von Doom was clever and made for a worthy surprise in earlier issues, but Von Doom's constant stalking of Tony is starting to wear thin. Bendis has already succeeded in establishing doubt regarding Von Doom's apparent reformation, but continuing to do so here is little more than redundant. The whole issue has a feeling of redundancy, and -- coupled with its somewhat stagnant pace -- "Invincible Iron Man" #6 is the most stretched out issue of the new series so far. Read Full Review
