There is no letting up and the book is consistently great!! I'm so glad this book has picked up many more readers in the last few months which means it has secured time for Ewing to keep telling his story with some special Bennett and Mounts art.

It's pretty good and a must read Taylor and Cabal are great together! But I still feel that Spectacular Spider-Man 310 is still the best modern Spider-Man single issue.

It's good and Coates delivers some good lines and scenes but I have high expectations so I'm still waiting for it to reach next level. Kubert is a legend who delivers some nice panels but I'm ready for another artist. He loses me in some scenes where the art is sub-par. Martin's colors are great and help the art a a lot.

This checks all of my Fantastic Four elements and it would make Stan and Kirby proud! Yes Doom is back to his old self but based on all that happened before It was expected. I never knew why? Bendis never delivered a real reason anyway. I'm sure the council of RRs will come into play eventually and we will see that version...I hope. The art was fantastic! Kuder being mixed with Paco and Caselli is more

Outstanding issue! I loved the Justice League of America's introduction into the Marvel Universe :-) Since the Squadron Supreme was wasting away, this is a nice way to bring them in. YES the idea has been done before but man is the execution done well. Ed McGuiness is a Master of his craft and he elevates this issue beyond the satirical one it would have been. Morales and Ponsor shine as well!!

I've been following TS:IM since issue 1, which was my first Iron Man comic. It feels like a lot of issues, including this one, rely heavily on previous Iron Man lore, and don't do a great job explaining it as they go (as opposed to, say, Nick Spencer's current run on Spider-Man, which almost over-explains its own lore). That being said, if I just sit back and except the things I don't understand, more
