    In a more minor aspect, I like seeing Split Lip hanging out with Tony still. In his own, foul mouthed way, Split is charming. It should be fun seeing him in this series going forward. Read Full Review

    Iron Man isn't just fighting super-villains in this story arc. The antagonists also include a voracious press, hungry for a scandal but not nearly hungry enough for the facts. And another villain is Tony himself; he's forced to contend with his own mistakes here. Despite the manipulations of his enemies and the willingness of the news media to be manipulated, it's only possible due to the missteps Tony's made, not only recently but in the distant past.

    Ah the good old Daily Bugle and their headlines... You'd think they'd have gotten more classy after JJJ became mayor, but I guess not. This comic was a great set-up issue. It moved briskly, and the story is pretty simple... The Mandarin is out to ruin Tony(again) and along with another one of Tony's enemies(Stane) is willing to go further than ever before. Personally, I'm delighted to see the Mandarin here, as he's probably the most well rounded villain in Iron Man's rogue gallery. Sure, I could do without the dwarf, since it adds NOTHING to the series, but what can ya do? For the most part this was a really good issue, one that has me interested in this storyline, dwarf or not. Read Full Review

    Now that "Fear Itself" is behind us, Fraction is able to focus on Tony Stark being Iron Man and fighting against menaces that only Iron Man can face. About damn time, I say. This book is clicking once again and I'm looking forward to where it goes from here as Fraction is getting ready to run Iron Man through ringer. Read Full Review

    Larroca executes the visuals well. Hes to be credited for this book still being one of the top one at Marvel Comics. Its his vision and continuous work the last three years that has made this book with it is and allowed Fraction to get away with poor and unimaginative stories. Fraction owes Larroca a lot for making his pitiful work, the last two years seem better than it really is. Read Full Review
