    Comic Watch - Nicholas Duncan Jul 2, 2018

    Slott and his creative team capture the energy and voice of Tony Stark and the Iron Man idea persona. This issue uses tropes that made the first Iron Man film great. The art is kinetic and vibrant much like the title character. The style allows the story consistently flowing at a face pace. Slotts reputation could only guild on the success of this first issue to be a tremendously successful arc. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Jun 20, 2018

    This comic, despite its nearly prohibitive price tag, is a wonderful introduction to Tony Stark, Iron Man, Stark Unlimited, and Dan Slott's tenure on one of Marvel's most recognizable properties. It offers a little more for readers more versed with Iron Man's mythology prior to this issue, but there's plenty here for everyone. Read Full Review

    Tony Stark: Iron Man #1 is a fun, easy entry-point to the Iron Man universe for any reader, no matter their familiarity with the recent workings of Marvel. Schiti and Delgado are an excellent artistic team whose vibrant work mesh perfectly with the more comedic aspects of Slott’s script, and collectively, this team has created a debut issue that feels incredibly welcoming, especially in a comics landscape that has churned through seemingly innumerable reboots and renumberings in the last few years.

    This brand new introduction to the world of Tony Stark is off to a phenomenal start! Though this is just beginning, I can see the new Stark team introducing grand adventures to readers. Tony himself is back to a more likable state and the RDJ-like attitude appeals to old and new readers alike. I'm excited to see what this brand new run has in store for readers. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jun 24, 2018

    A solid introduction to this character and his supporting cast. It does mold the comic book character into the film persona a little too often, but this is obviously being done to attract and keep new readers. Old time readers will find plenty to enjoy, though there are instances which might skew too far to younger readers. If Marvel keeps Tony this way, they are sure to have a long run with this series.

    There are maybe a few ways in which the comic plays things a little too safe, at times " but for a first issue of a new series, after the character has been MIA for a while? That's not a bad thing; the comic can take its time and shake things up later, after re-establishing the status quo. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jun 20, 2018

    There is a lot of potential in Tony Stark: Iron Man #1. Schiti is an undeniably great pick for the first issue, executing new concepts like a nesting doll arrangement of armors wonderfully. Slott is charming in the exact ways that fans have come to expect. His story aims big, taps into the history of Marvel, and offers plenty of jokes. The direction is unclear though, and it's difficult to understand how this presentation of Tony Stark aligns with concerns of ethics in technology, mass corporate control, and egoism.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Jun 22, 2018

    Tony Stark " Iron Man #1 was a frustratingly disappointing read. I wanted to love this issue and I do think that Slott has some really cool concepts for this title. But, Slott's shallow story, poor character work and hellbent focus on getting out a message over delivering a quality story really hurts this title. At this point, I cannot recommend Tony Stark " Iron Man. There are too many other super hero titles on the market that offer a superior bang for your buck. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Jul 5, 2018

    Bhang applies his operating system and even adds a little flair he got from young Tony twenty-five years ago. “And the day is saved. Thanks to…” This is some very saccharine exposition and a cliche ‘last-minute save' brought to you by an uninspiring view of a beloved and complex character. The last few panels riff off the press conference of the Jon Favreau's MCU-creating Iron Man movie, leaving off with the idea that everyone at Stark Unlimited has a hand in Iron Man's destiny. This is an awkward and sanitized comedic take on a very nuanced and layered title. Read Full Review

    My last reading & reviewing for this week. At first I have the need to run very far away from it. I have enough of Tony stark. But I had to try. So their I am.
    My reading was very chaotic. I didn't like the starting point retconning once again tony past. And I didn't like the Tony we see going in Andrew home. Once more too narcissistic ! But I think a take me in when I see Bethany Cabe (Once again) as chief security. And with all Jocasta panel. And yeah also that this d... of Tony send a hologram !
    But in a way this book, and I understand it at the end, wasn't about Tony. It's not him the heroes, it's Andy. And I kind of like Andy.
    So yeah Slott don't hesitated to go all the way with the Meca-Iron-Man (I will not call him foo more

    Saint Tony of the Church of Iron Man breathlessly sweeps up an old competitor and installs him in the new Stark Unlimited Robotics Division. There's a Fin Fang Foom fight and some back-burnered corporate espionage, but for my money, the most promising novelty is Jocasta as the company's robo-ethics specialist. This script is ambitious, particularly in its "one step past tolerable on the cocky-meter" characterization of Tony. Exceptional art NEARLY sells this as all-time great; I'm held back by a little uncertainty as to whether this issue's patronizing tone comes from Tony or the author.

    Tony Stark: Iron Man #1 is fun and exciting new direction for Iron Man going forward, with a new character in the supporting cast, along with an unknown threat that is targeting Tony Stark.

    The story kicks off with Tony recruiting new character Andy Bhang into his company, Stark Unlimited, due to the latter's creation of letting robots work together to create solutions to problems they are faced with. After showing a stunned Bhang around the company building, things go from zero to sixty as a colossal and unexpected foe begins attacking the Big Apple, forcing the Golden Avenger to suit up.

    Right off the bat, the characterization of Stark here is not unsimilar to that of the version portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. in th more

    Recent years of Iron Man books have been a little more serious in tone, but this new book seems to be a bit more lighthearted. Granted, this was only issue #1. Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about that. It was hard to take seriously and if that continues I'm not sure I'll stick with it. I'll give it a couple of issues before I make further decisions though.

    This is alright. I dunno. I'm going to keep reading it, but nothing in this first issue was really captivating. The music thing was sort of dumb. I'm gonna stay on, but this book is kind of on a short leash.

    Not bad of a start, quite lighthearted but that's not a bad thing at all. Tony Stark's name in the title for a reason and it's definitely apparent in the story. Artwork has been great and it suits the story very well.

    Don't like the art style. Also the tone and style of the cover doesn't match the inside. Never judge a book by it's cover, but you get a wrong expectations.

    A pretty bad start for a series I already didn't have too much faith in. Let's face it: Dan Slott cannot write complex characters, and he really shows it here, with the most cliché issue #1 in the whole Fresh Start relaunch. The art was nothing special either.
