Tony Stark continues to roughly dismantle the fancy, shiny and sophisticated ways of his past... but the world doesn't seem quite convinced that he's changed his rich guy tune. As Iron Man, he takes the fight to the streets, looking to sacrifice himself on the altar of super heroism again and again-first with Arcade and Absorbing Man then with medical vigilante Cardiac - all in hope of redemption in the eyes of the public. Only trouble is he might get himself killed in the process, and there are still plenty of people in line with an ax to grind. Old friends like HELLCAT try to help him find pea more

    Big Comic Page - Jonathan Mullen Oct 24, 2020

    So bear with me, because I know that what I am about to say might seem hyperbolic but if youve been fortunate enough tyo read any of this series so far, I doubt you will disagree. If this book continues with its current level of quality, we will be talking about it for years to come. Its rare to see a creative team not only completely understanding a character the way they do Tony here, but also understanding superheroes in general. This is probably my favourite comic of the year so far, and it makes me trust Cantwell and CAFU completely to give us the best look at Tony since Matt Fraction. I honestly cannot recommend this book any higher. You should all be reading this. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 21, 2020

    Christopher Cantwell and Cafu's Iron Man feels revolutionary in its approach for the character. This is an Iron Man who has real problems going on inside of him and he's not sure how to fix it. That's exciting, especially if you've read Iron Man for the last 30 years as he seems to have always had an answer for anything. Iron Man has been rendered human again, and for that, Iron Man is more relatable and interesting than ever. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Oct 21, 2020

    In their second issue, the creators of this volume of Iron Man make it clear that they're hunting bigger game than a one-two-three plot. The selection of scenes may seem arbitrary -- until you step back and examine the huge themes that are building up. The thematic comparison between Iron Man and Korvac is already looking promising enough; the fact that the individual scenes are delightful makes this issue a rewarding read by itself.

    If Tony Stark's self-effacing jokes in "Iron Man" #2 don't melt your heart, Patsy Walker's subtle jabs will. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 22, 2020

    A shaken Tony Stark faces threats that he doesn't understand and a world that doesn't quite trust him, with one of the most powerful villains in the universe pulling the strings. Combined with beautiful art, it makes for a good read. Read Full Review

    Cafu's art is amazing. From the action to the character moments, the art is beautifully detailed and matches the tone of the story perfectly. Read Full Review

    IRON MAN #2 has great action and fantastic art but fails to build on the story potential from the first issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Oct 28, 2020

    Similar to that run some may not click with a book that has these types of aspirational goals. Character studies allow for significant character growth but could limit the bigger action moments people are accustomed to especially within the Marvel universe. The lingering threat linking these issues does need some work as so far it is rather lackluster. Still, the work being done here does bold well for the future. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - clayhinojosa10 Oct 21, 2020

    If Christopher Cantwell wants to take this "Tom King" type of story telling for a character like Tony Stark he needs to quickly move away from whatever he is doing now and shift before it's too late. Readers of this generation can only take so much set up for so long, with little "one-offs" that do nothing for the story or character, this Iron Man series will be dead in the water by issue six.
