    Leonardo Manco struck me as an odd choice for a superhero book, given his past slate of work. Manco doesn't entirely transition well from the world of Vertigo. His characters generally look great, but his storytelling becomes muddled in the larger action scenes. I also don't particularly care for his interpretation of the War Machine armor. It's essentially a recolored version of the Iron Man movie armor with about 50 cannons strapped to the shoulders. Pak has hinted a new suit by be forthcoming, and I hope it is. Overall, I chalk up the book's visual problems to Manco's inexperience in the area of super-heroics, and I'm hoping we'll see some steady improvement to the storytelling aspects. Read Full Review
