    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 21, 2018

    This comic is good. It's damn good! Freed from 10 years of his own built-up Amazing Spider-Man continuity, all of the joy and creativity of a Dan Slott comic is allowed to roam free in Tony Stark " Iron Man. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Duncan Jul 27, 2018

    There is simplicity to this issue with much room for imagination. It seems that Slott and his creative team are building up to some major events for the rest of the arc. How did Tony come back wrong? Im ready for Tony Stark Iron Man #3! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 21, 2018

    Valerio Schiti's art is beautiful. I loved all of the action panels and the use of certain camera angles and close ups works really well. All of the details are awesome to look at and there was a great flow between the art and the story. Read Full Review

    The series continues to be happy-go-lucky, but there's a twist at the end that hints at a much darker reality on the horizon. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jul 18, 2018

    Despite all his suits of armor, it's pretty incredible to see how unencumbered Tony Stark: Iron Man is - even compared to Slott's earlier work on Amazing Spider-Man, there's a particularly light touch to the stakes that admittedly some hardcore fans might take umbrage with. Still, Slott's handle on concept work continues in fine form here, while Schiti continues to step up his game from issue to issue. Read Full Review

    I have to say, I was skeptical about this run once it was announced, but at the rate it's going Tony Stark: Iron Man may just end up making me eat my words. Read Full Review

    It will be interesting to see what Stark feels is 'missing' and how he will go about fixing it. The various subplots add to the mystery and I for one want more. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jul 19, 2018

    Dan Slott is only two issues into his run but so far, so good. Tony Stark: Iron Man #2 adds some interesting layers to the story as it continues to unfold. Dealing with Tony and Rhodes coming back from the dead and the psychological effects of that while still having this background plot slowly boiling to the surface with the Controller makes for a great ongoing story. Slott obviously likes to play the long game with his stories, so we will see where this goes. The art is solid. While it is a little too clean and pristine for my personal taste, I do really like the armor designs. Overall, Tony Stark: Iron Man #2 is off to a solid start. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Jul 21, 2018

    Issue #2 ends, leaving the reader with real deep insight into the complex fabric of the Stark Unlimited family. It also shows us the many loose threads in that tapestry and tugs a little at each one. Slott sets the pieces up slowly and with great care, and Valerio Schiti delivers visuals with a golden age feel matched with clear and expressive dynamism. There's a simplicity to this story that I think is the prelude to some intense events for the rest of the arc. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Jul 18, 2018

    Just like its titular character the series has a lot of great ideas to work with and some notable vices; it's still unclear which half of that equation will win out as it continues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Jul 23, 2018

    Tony Stark " Iron Man #2 is an issue that has the kernel of a fun story but that is ruined by shallow writing and poor character work. This issue is not worth the $4.00 cover price. There are so many better mainstream super hero titles on the market. This is a shame since I do think that if Slott could make a few changes that Tony Stark " Iron Man could be a fun read.

    This is a very strong story. I loved the start with the morning of four of the supporting cast.
    I really love more & more Jocasta. I'm not fond of the idea that Friday have a body too now.
    I think is very cool to give Rodhes a fear to be once more in the armor.
    I want more of this title.

    Cover - Love this cover, not related. 1/2
    Writing - Well written. Love the book even if that look like a minor story. Slott seem to construct step by step his story. And I prefer that to a grandstanding scene like in both the Avengers 1 & JL 1. 3/3
    Arts - Love the art even if there is some panel without any background. 3/3
    Feeling - I love this ongoing so far. 2/2

    This was content packed - with GOOD content and dangler followups.

    This was an issue that I didn't expect to enjoy, due to some problems I had with the first issue, but in the end, I ended up liking a lot more. This series is at its strongest when it focuses on the characters, as writer Dan Slott is best at writing characters, and this issue does exactly that. It focuses on War Machine, a take that I enjoyed and hadn't seen before and Tony Stark is enjoyable as ever. Jocasta was a character I enjoyed in the first issue, and liked possibly even more than the first issue. She has some good conflicts similar to Tom King's Vision, just not that amazing or to that scale, but still, reminiscent. I'm curious to see where her story goes after the reveal relating to her at the end of the issue. Although nothing mak more

    What a way to save a series. The first issue in the series for me was very middle of the road. While not bad at all it was just so generic and the art was just so corny looking, I told myself I was going to drop it if the second issue did not deliver. Well, it did! I thought this was a big step up from the first. We get direction, ideas, a cool Rhodey side story and just an overall good read. I'll definitely be sticking around for now even though the art is still not much of my style.

    Same thing as with the last issue - the story itself isn't the best, but the characterisation and interactions between characters are very strong and interesting.
