    Tony Stark makes you feel he's a cool exec with a heart of steel. Or rather a heart of gold and a brain of pure imagination. This issue, Tony and friends are headed into cyberspace. Take a journey into The Great eScape. But be careful, because Machine Man wants to crash the party. A thrilling third issue that sets the stage for more to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Duncan Aug 23, 2018

    Tony Stark Iron Man #3 is an awesome look into his new pet project while shifting the focus from himself over to Jocosta and her feelings to become more human. Dan Slott and his creative team are doing a great job with the characters and giving Tonys secondary cast some great development. I am really looking forwardto the next issue! Read Full Review

    An issue that further's the interesting premise of robots requiring rights. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 15, 2018

    There is a whimsy to Stark in this series and it is refreshing to witness. What's more interesting is that there might be more under the surface that Slott has yet to reveal and the clues to that make the story more interesting and the mystery more compelling. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 20, 2018

    While this issue doesn't push the overall story ahead much, I liked the art, the character moments and yes, the fun.  Dan Slott is making me like Tony Stark, but I'm loving some of the other characters as well, especially Jocasta.  This continues being one of the books I am glad I jumped on for Fresh Start.

    This issue shows off the design of the current series at its best, building on big ideas and plots simultaneously delivering a satisfying adventure with its own conclusion. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 15, 2018

    While its virtual reality premise doesn't sparkle in its own right, this issue resonates thanks to the twisty developments it delivers to the plot and the characters (one in particular). Tony Stark gets upstaged an awful lot for a protagonist with his name in the title. As long as the upstaging is this compelling, though, I'll happily come back for more. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 18, 2018

    The story is in danger of going off the rails a bit in this wild issue, but some really strong character-based storytelling keeps the adventure on track. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 16, 2018

    The ideas are all there, but the characterization still feels a little ephemeral, which hopefully Tony Stark: Iron Man can correct soon. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Aug 20, 2018

    While the story is fun and easily accessible and the artwork reminiscent of early works, overly colloquial tone and at times overly harsh colors take away from "Tony Stark: Iron Man" #3 Read Full Review

    Another good story. It's great to hide to Tony the true ennemi behind. It was a great issue to deepen this new Tony.

    Cover - I take the FF version because I didn't like the regular. Now I understand the link so I regret. So nice but not related by my fault only. For Once I will put 2/2 but for the regular.
    Writing - It was a very fun story to read. A good use of the cast. I love Andy & Amanda relationship. There is some part I didn't understand, but I think it's me. 3/3
    Arts - I'm not a fan of the effect for the virtual world. But I understand why this is like this. I love the character in the reality. I'm in love with Jocasta image inducing persona. A technology Mutant don't use anymore sadly. 2.5/3
    Feeling - I wo more

    First issue that really gets me hooked. I like the atmosphere this run try to create and in this issue, it works also with the story.

    My favorite character so far is Jocasta and the feeling she that she's transporting. She is the reason why I continue to read this run.
    Also I like Andy Bhang point of view.

    This is the best issue of the series in my opinion. Project eScape was a nice departure from the first two issues, offering originality and unique visuals. It was a fun setting that hope we get to see more of in future issues. I appreciate the characterization, as with most of Dan Slott's comics. Jocasta is one of, if not the best characters in the series in my opinion. It is disappointing we don't get to see Rhodey in this issue, as he was such a great character in the last issue. I like that the issue revealed a much more human side to Tony Stark as previously in the series, he appeared like an untouchable billionaire, and even if it is just one panel, I appreciate the step towards a more fleshed out Tony. Machine Man was a pretty weak vi more

    I’ll go with the consensus, it’s a fun book.

    The Stark team weathers the beta test of their virtual reality eScape, even when Aaron Stack crashes the party. Jocasta makes a superb star turn, and Tony reveals a fascinating worry about his humanity. There are great potential parallels between their stories, but the comic hasn't really explored them yet. Instead, we get too much focus on the "blah" antagonism of the Controller. Another hole in the story: The fundamental rules of the beta test aren't explained very clearly. That makes this issue's plot seem more complex than it really is. Solid but subtle visuals help keep the story enjoyable despite its shortcomings.

    This was a fun issue. Nothing to fancy and some good ideas being tossed around. It just feels like something is missing.

    Yes the story is pretty decent and there's plenty of great characterisation, but I'm still not hooked on this.

    very meh. a few vaguely interesting plots going on at once. just.. too much to really let any one of them emerge and be as interesting as it should be. the Jocasta story is the closest one to being "interesting" right now.

    and the art is just.. meh too. not bad. not good either.

    still hoping this gets better.

    This was fine. Machine Man deserves better than this.

    I don’t like Dan Slott’s writing, he has great great ideas and knows how to do a good plot, but he is terrible with characters when he is not inspired, that’s why we got a Spider Man run in which Peter Parker rarely evolved as a character despite intricate plots, even brilliant ones like Spider Verse.
    So far it’s the same with Iron Man, this book is about everything but Tony, and three issues in we have gotten more Rhodey, Jocasta and Machine Man, and even that terrible character Amanda Armstrong.
    Also it feels like a knock off of Ready Player One. And do we need another Are Robots Humans when this type of story hss been done to death elsewhere?
    Mediocre so far.
