    You really can't go wrong by picking this issue up, especially if you have been following this series since it debuted. The payoff is great and everything comes together extremely well. A near-perfect read for new, casual, and hardcore fans alike. Also, as a side note, be sure to pick up the David Aja variant. It rocks! Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Oct 8, 2008

    As the latest in the string of renumbering/relaunching tactics Marvel has employed recently, Invincible Iron Man at least makes a case for itself as a title deserving it. Whether you like the character or not, the book is edgy and engaging enough to suck almost any reader in. When it comes to first-class superheroics with a bit of a twist, it doesn't get much better than this title. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Erik Norris Oct 7, 2008

    Because this issue was mostly comprised of a fight sequence, it does read rather fast. The issue is also very well paced which makes the pages fly by even faster maybe leading you to question if your $3 was well spent. Well, I'm here to reassure you that it was. "The Five Nightmares" has been one of the better Iron Man arcs I have read in recent memory, and I hope Fraction's hot streak continues on this title so I can enjoy some more Iron Man stories of this caliber.

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Oct 13, 2008

    Fraction, and artistic collaborator Sal Larroca, haven't done anything shockingly new in this series, but it's a very good portrayal of the Iron Man universe in all of its sleek beauty and moral uncertainty. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 8, 2008

    As a concluding chapter to this opening arc, I think the issue accomplished what this series set out to do ie. remaking the comic Iron Man so it is more in line with its movie counterpart but I'm still a little disappointed they threw out all the work done in Director of SHIELD and took several steps backwards with the character, much like they did with Peter Parker in Brand New Day, to do so.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Oct 10, 2008

    Fraction's Invincible Iron Man is simply an unintelligent read. And Invincible Iron Man #6 clearly continues that trend. The Knaufs gave us a thinking man's Iron Man and now Fraction is following that up with a story that barely passes as mindless entertainment. Fraction's opening story arc has been derivative and predictable. Read Full Review
