    Gripes aside, I really enjoyed this issue. I think it has a lot going for it and I look forward to reading the rest of this arc. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    It's disappointing, but not entirely unexpected, to see that Roberto de la Torre's art isn't quite up to the standard he set last issue. It's becoming apparent that de la Torre's art requires more time and care than a monthly schedule will allow. More disappointing is that he shares art duties with Carlos Pagulayan. The inker and colorist do a decent job of masking the random shifts, but it's still pretty noticeable. By and large, though, this issue was a pleasant surprise. If nothing else, Stuart Moore is doing a bang-up job of keeping the Iron Man chair warm. Read Full Review

    For an opening chapter, issue #29 is a success. It has me intrigued enough to pick up next month's issue, and that's what comics are all about: the hook. The writing is strong, helped by tonally fitting art that makes for a comic that you can't get anywhere else besides Captain America at the House of Ideas. Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. needs more readers. I hope this review proves how new reader friendly this series is, helping gather the audience this title so rightfully deserves.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 21, 2008

    Simply put, this has the plot and story of the more super hero-like Invincible Iron Man, but is written in the dark / gritty / realistic / noir style that the Knaufs employ, making it read awkward for me. Maybe it's just the fact it's different that's throwing me off and others will enjoy this more than I did. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt May 27, 2008

    Moore provides a near-seamless changeover from the Knaufs' work on the title -"" if you didn't like it then, you're not going to find your opinion changed, but fans of their work should come out pleased. New, post-movie fans should still be focusing on "Invincible Iron Man", but if they're desperate for more, this issue would be a more-than-accommodating choice. Read Full Review
