    I loved this issue. Everything about it screams "amazing." Fraction has done a great job with this world and its characters and I can't wait to continue reading. I love where this book is and where it's heading to. Salvador Larroca and FrankD'Armata do an amazing job on art, and this book is full of depth and is so well-defined. Read Full Review

    Fraction doesn't surpass all expectations with “The Demolished Man”, he simply educates us that when it comes to “The Future”, expectations are more or less meaningless. Read Full Review

    However, this is definitely not a good place for new readers to jump in on. But that'll probably be remedied with the Marvel Now! relaunch. Read Full Review

    We might just be in the first part of this story, but it looks like we have a much better focused story as we've gotten the world around Tony mostly caught up and a lot of threads aren't going to be as distracting as they were in the last arc. I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes about in the relationship between Stark and Stane as they try to work their way out of Mandarin City. Read Full Review

    There's not much else to be said about Salvador Larroca's artwork these days. The series has practically become a biweekly book this summer, yet Larroca never falters in his storytelling. The flip side is that his work remains relatively sparse, relying overly much on Frank D'Armata's colors to fill in finer details. Nonetheless, it's impressive to see how much one consistent creative team can accomplish over the course of a mere four years. Read Full Review

    As part one of a new storyline, "Invincible Iron Man" #521 touches on the various components of Iron Man's life thoroughly enough to provide a decent recap without slavishly regurgitating origin stories or previous scenes. Fraction pours a substantial amount of ideas into this issue, giving Iron Man fans much to look forward to in the next issue. Read Full Review
