    I'd still like to see Tony Stark in his own comic, but Riri is a fine replacement - for now. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Ben Wasserman Jun 22, 2017

    The latest chapter in Riri William's life tests her optimistic and individualist nature against the more cynical world of S.H.I.E.L.D. and adults. While Bendis' story does remain a bit slow, Caselli's art direction and Bendis' characterization of Marvel's latest millennial superhero help INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #8 stand tall as a series.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 22, 2017

    This series is doing a great job of establishing Riri as a character, just less so when it comes to making her an active player in the wider Marvel Universe. But between Bendis' characterization and Stefano Caselli's gorgeous, expressive art, the positives continue to outweigh the negatives. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Jun 21, 2017

    In what has been a stellar run, this issue had some issues with consistency and pacing that made it less engaging than previous issues. Still, the book ends by opening up a conflict with a much bigger fish for Riri, so it promises to kick things up a bit moving forward. Read Full Review

    Did the critics actually read this piece of trash, or did they randomly decide that a score of 8 is good? Riri, as a character, is trash. If you don't get that from this issue, you're not paying attention.

    Easily the best issue yet, crisp dialogue, Riri finally wins a fight, lovely and rich art.

    Riri continues to be a pretty charming character, and her chemistry with A.I. Tony continues to provide fun moments. Bendis effectively uses flashback scenes to develop Riri's character. And Stefano Caselli really delivers on art. "Invincible Iron Man" continues to quietly be a pretty damn good comic.

    I have followed Ironheart from the beginning. I think each issue just keeps getting better. I am really seeing the growth of RiRi as a character. The art has been consistently good and this chapter is no different. Tony stark's A.I makes a perfect companion for her and I like to see how the relationship is evolving with each and every issue.

    Riri enlists in Sharon Carter's war with Lucia Von Bardas, but she's smart enough to ask insightful questions about why she should be doing it. The questioning of authority is rounded out with a pretty awesome fight vs. Lady Octopus and some iffier flashbacks to Riri's early days as a precocious kid. Mr. Bendis is choosing to make gags with a theme that could arguably be summarized as "silly genius-girl, black women don't face oppression any more." It's a fast, comedic treatment of a contentious subject that deserves way more serious thought. In more tactical matters, the dialogue in this issue is pretty snappy (weird plug for Freaks and Geeks, though, and a weird decision not to drop astronaut Mae Jemison's name even though two different s more

    What mainly killed the comic for me was the flashback in which Riri asks her teacher to discriminate against her so that she can play the victim. It makes Riri an even less likable character.
