INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1
Superior art! Justin Ponsor’s colors are particularly nice, luxuriously illuminating Tony Stark’s after-midnight Manhattan penthouse world. David Marquez can draw subtle changes of expression and so he holds up to Brian Michael Bendis’ parades of talking-heads-in-boxes. Panel sequences on some of the two-page spreads are hard to follow. As is common with Bendis books, the characterization and dialogue is strong, while the plot moves at a … languid … pace. Limited action. Nice reveal at the end. The new armor design is a snore.
Approachability For New Readers
Good! If you know Tony Stark from a comic or a movie or a cartoon, you will be instantly up-to-speed.
Yes. Iron thumbs up!
