    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Aug 1, 2012

    We're treated to a nice scene between The Mandarin and Tony where Mandarin reveals a bit of his backstory. Whether he's telling the truth or not is yet to be revealed however, but I'm sure we'll find out soon. Matt Fraction continues to not disappoint as he ends with a cliffhanger that leaves me waiting to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    While the tension between Tony and Mandarin continues to bubble nicely, Fraction also delivers some extended action as both Iron Man and Rescue battle their united foes. I do wish Pepper's attempts to ferret out Iron Man's identity weren't such a significant part of their interaction, given that the reader knows perfectly well who he is. On the other hand, Iron Man delivers a slightly on-the-nose speech that suggests there's a much deeper reason for all the deception and conspiracy. One thing is certain -- there's more than enough incentive to keep coming back for each issue of Future. The rapid shipping schedule is just one more bonus. Read Full Review

    Overall, this arc is so much stronger than the last and we're only two issues in. There's still a lot more to see, but I'm definitely on board to see what happens next! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Aug 1, 2012

    Overall, the past two stories have been a 5/5 for me. This one hit a little bit of a slump with me because I found the Mandarin/Tony Stark scenes so much more intriguing, but it was still a great book. We got to see a great possibly updated history of the Mandarin as well as what Tony Stark's real plans are. I loved the art and writing on this book, as always. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Aug 2, 2012

    Another very solid outing for one of Marvel's best series, even if it is a bit guilty of being a chapter in a trade paperback more than an issue in an ongoing series. Still, lots of cool stuff here. Read Full Review
