This is one hell of a good book. Now, I’m not actually a big Iron Man fan, so perhaps I was more predisposed than some “true believers” to enjoy this story arc, which focuses on some strong female supporting characters and a very atypical portrayal of Tony Stark. It also ends on a big cliffhanger, and while there’s no real question as to what will eventually happen, I’m almost curious enough to start subscribing to the monthly title. Almost.
Side note: I was fortunate enough to see Matt Fraction at w00tstock 2.1, where he gave a great presentation about creating comics and his personal history with the medium. He might be giving a repeat performance at w00tstock 2.4 (San Diego Comic-Con) next month. If you’re in the neighborhood, you’d be a fool not to check it out.
