    In the end, The Invincible Iron #14 is a must read issue. While it may go unnoticed amid the myriad of Civil War tie-ins, fans of both Iron Man and comic books in general, owe it to themselves to read this issue and get a first hand glimpse into what may very well be one of the most prolific and creative superhero runs in years.

    Without Larroca, the story would not feel as larger than life. With Larrocas participation, this series and the current story arc have the potential to dethrone previous highlights of Iron Man, like the armour wars and much of the run by David Michelinie and Bob Layton. Whether its technology, regular folks or super models, Larroca knows how to render them well. Read Full Review

    I’m really digging this storyline and am ready to be baptized into the Church of Fraction. The guy hasn’t let me down yet and he’s even got me into Iron Man, a character I really haven’t been interested in for a long time. There really isn’t an aspect of this story that doesn’t interest me, from Tony to Pepper to the Black Widow: its good all-around (except for the fact that I can’t recognize anybody until someone calls their name). And it’s only $2.99, a factor that will soon be as outdated as the armor Tony is wearing in this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 17, 2009

    As usual, it's hard to find much of anything to complain about when it comes to Fraction's scripting. This series finds him very much in his element, full of espionage, intrigue, tragedy, and off-kilter humor. But also as usual, the art never quite holds up its end of the bargain. Salvador Larroca's pencils are light, wispy, and don't bring enough to the table. They do too little, so Frank D'Armata's colors end up doing too much. There has been some improvement in recent months, I'll admit, but the same unnatural look to the human figures remains. Armored characters are much better off, with the lone exception of Pepper's hideous suit. The flow of action in this series is fluid and often gorgeous. It's a shame the garish coloring and wonky characters so often detract from the story. Invincible Iron Man is getting better and better each month. With the art the way it is, though, the series is quickly going to hit a ceiling it can't crack. Not even with an Iron Man leading the charge. Read Full Review

    This has been a strong series so far, but I hope the Dark Reign thing is wrapping up soon. Even the Fugitive was allowed to stop running eventually. Read Full Review

    Sure it's a bit slow, but Invincible Iron Man #14 is still a clever, intelligent, and compelling slice of entertainment that's well worth it's cover price. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Chris Partin Jun 22, 2009

    I could probably read only one Marvel series and have it be Invincible Iron Man. The writing is great. The art is superb. I’m looking forward to a long, adventurous run on this series from Fraction, Larroca, D’Armata, and Caramagna. I hope Marvel lets them. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 15, 2009

    This title is high-octane excitement and the repulsor rays have this book set for "fun." As the world marks time until the next "Iron Man" movie, this title can be relied upon for a monthly dose of iron-clad excitement. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jun 24, 2009

    Invincible Iron Man #14 was another average issue. There are signs of improvement by Fraction, but so far "World's Most Wanted" has simply felt like a poor combination of older Iron Man stories. For the most part, this is a story that will be enjoyed much more by new Iron Man fans than those that have been reading Iron Man before the Iron Man movie was released. Read Full Review
