    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Nov 1, 2018

    Despite the changes in the art, I could not recommend this book enough. The story is just so much fun. It is rare you pick up a comic that all three acts of a story are perfectly displayed, in roughly twenty pages. If you know nothing about Arno Stark, it won't matter at all. He will be a character you understand and appreciate by the time you put this book down. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 31, 2018

    Slott shifts the focus away from Tony and the issues at Stark Unlimited and devotes some time to creating an intriguing character in Arno Stark. There are layers to this character and when the reader discovers the questionable things that he does in the course of his mission, it adds additional drama to the story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicolas Duncan Nov 8, 2018

    Tony Stark Iron Man #5 is a great quality of intensity to the Self-Made Man storyline. Arno Stark, super-genius with the perfect vision of the task on hand. However, be careful as his sweet goodies may leave a dirty sour taste. Great read! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Nov 1, 2018

    Despite my enjoyment of the previous free-wheeling issues with Tony, Slott effectively takes us down a darker path that doesn't sacrifice quality and adds another layer of complexity to an already great series. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Nov 11, 2018

    Surprisingly enough, Tony Stark: Iron Man is still engaging to read and taking us to places we have never been with the Iron Man mythos. Hats off to the art team, nothing groundbreaking but at least a few chilling panels in there toward the end that really give you an idea where Arno's head is these days. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Chase Magnett Oct 31, 2018

    What this issue does have in common with prior installments is an overall sense of messiness, now with an unnecessary factor of poorly considered ethics. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 3, 2018

    An entire issue dedicated to introducing an insufferably boring villain to the otherwise stellar Iron Man comic. Read Full Review
