    A very busy issue as there's a wealth of ideas at play in these pages, and for the most part Robin Laws manages to keep things interesting. Now from an entertainment standpoint Tony's battle with his possessed armor should been extended, as while the solution makes perfect sense, it's hard to develop a sense of danger when the solution presents itself on the very first page, and the crisis is resolved one page later. However, the new armor that arrives to replace the suit that Tony destroyed features one of the cooler gimmicks I've ever seen a writer introduce in this book, and while the story has this feature disabled a bit too easily, I do hope that the technology isn't a one time deal, as it's a pretty solid gimmick, that I'd like to see incorporated into future armor designs. The cliffhanger is a bit low key though as the book hasn't really established why Tony getting infected is such a dire event, though presumably next issue will offer up this explanation.

    Overall, this issue has some entertaining character moments and effective atmospheric art, but demands a lot of attention to decipher the action. Read Full Review
