    Month in, month out, I'm always putting Invincible Iron Man on top of my reading pile. It's so consistently good, I'm running out of superlatives to level on it. Between this and the superb annual froma couple weeks ago, Fraction's run on Iron Man is quickly shaping up to be a definitive era for this title and this character. Go back and get the back-issues that started this storyline,and catch-up to this issue. I gaurantee it'll be worth it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jul 15, 2010

    The centerpiece of the issue involves Tony and War Machine being duped into a PR fiasco by Justine and Sasha Hammer, a rather contrived development that doesn't really feel as devastating, or as inventive, for that matter, as Fraction intends it to be. We've seen Tony confronted with the negative consequences of his inventions plenty of times in the past, and this sequence does nothing new in that regard. Still, there are moments, such as a concise but revealing argument between Tony and Maria Hill that recalls Fraction's best work on this book. The issue also manages to end on a note that builds up this latest threat in an enticing way. Despite its flaws, and despite the fact that it involves Salvador Larroca rendering un-armored people in his awkward way for long stretches (never a good thing), the issue performs well enough to call it another winner.

    Iron Man is rebuilding his empire by creating top speed sports cars powered by his repulsor technology. Hes recruiting the best of the bunch to create his new company focused on helping the world and not creating military armament. But the Hammers have another objective and they want to shame Tony Stark and take over the business he relents. Will they succeed? This issue was talking heads. Although the artwork by Larrocca was gorgeous as usual, I had problems getting in the mood of reading the talking heads. I understand that some work has to be done to rebuild a solid core and cast for this series, but there has to be a better way of making it work than talking heads for almost 22 pages.

    I certainly recommend the issue to anyone already following the story/title. This isn't the most accessible issue by itself, so wouldn't be a particularly ideal jumping-on point...though if one can find #s 25-27 as well as this, together they're well worth picking up for anyone looking to get into the ongoing Iron Man story.

    The story beneath the surface is worth reading, but the surface is distracting more often than not. Read Full Review
