    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 10, 2012

    Fraction's Iron Man has been a series of mysteries wrapped in intruiges dipped in tempura and fried golden brown, and this issue merely ups the ante. Both sides of this fight are playing high-speed chess, and by the end of the issue, it's unclear who is really ahead.

Once these various conflicts converge more, then Long Way Down should truly hit its stride. Read Full Review

    Fraction's story is relatively ambitious to have all these things going on in the same arc. Salvador Larroca's art is still stellar, but I wish some of these separate stories could have been distilled down into their own arcs or broken up a little more. Read Full Review
