invincibleironman_11_secondprintingMarvel is pleased to announce that Invincible Iron Man #11 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level) and will return with Invincible Iron Man #11 Second Printing Variant, marking the third straight sell out for the series! New York Times Best-Selling author Matt Fraction and superstar artist Salvador Larroca present Tony Stark as he has literally fallen from the top of the world to the bottom of the barrel. As Norman Osborn basks in the adulation of the public during Dark Reign, Tony Stark fights to piece together his life, or what’s left of it. Things couldn’t be worse for the world’s most wanted man…until he faces off against an old friend! This new printing features Larroca’s powerful interior art on the cover, as Pepper Potts takes her new armor for a spin!

Critics and fans alike agree that Invincible Iron Man continues to be a great success:

“Fraction continues with his excellent characterization of Tony Stark.” – Gamerscircle.net

“Fraction’s Tony Stark has been one of the most well-defined portrayals of the character ever. Larroca and D’Armata really are at their best with the mechanical aspects of this series.” – Timothy Callahan, Comicbookresources.com

“Suave and cool…Matt Fraction is doing a good job of making a book about the most hated hero on the planet a pretty fun read.” – Chad Derdowski, Mania.com

“The script is tailor-made to Larroca’s strengths.” – Bryan Joel, IGN.com

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all Invincible Iron Man issues as well as all Dark Reign related tie-ins, as the series continues to generate quick sell-outs and great praise.

Review: Invincible Iron Man #4

August 3rd, 2008 Comments off

Ezekiel Stane has a grudge. Li’l Zeke blames Tony Stark for the death of his dear old dad, former Iron Man villain Obadiah Stane, aka the Iron Monger. Zeke is making it his life’s mission to bring down Tony Stark as well as the company he has built, and all the while using Tony’s own Iron Man technology to do it. Can Tony stop Ezekiel in time before he destroys Stark Enterprises, as well as bringing down the Iron Man himself?

The hunt for Ezekiel Stane continues in issue four of this explosive new series from writer Matt Fraction and artist Salvador Larroca. Fraction continues to deliver a pretty solid story. I wasn’t as thrilled with this issue as I was the previous issues, but I still very much enjoyed it. The only problem I had story wise with this issue was that it seemed to slow down considerably compared to the other three. I was looking for more of the explosions, chases and action that made the first three issues a blast. Don’t get me wrong though, there are some really great moments in this issue. I loved the interaction of Tony and Maria Hill. I think Fraction has a really great grasp of both of these characters, especially Maria. And, being a big fan of chess, I loved the opening with Tony and Reed Richards playing chess on five boards simultaneously. Really, really good stuff there!

I would have to say my biggest problem with the book comes from the art. I don’t want to sound like I’m bashing Larroca’s work. I have always enjoyed his stuff in the past, especially when he was on Extreme X-Men. But his stuff in this issue just didn’t really hit with me. I thought his first three issues were much, much stronger. There were some moments with the some of the characters that I thought just didn’t look right to me, especially the scenes with Reed. Overall, it was still a good read. I would have liked a little bit more action, but their were some really great character moments that made up for it. If you haven’t checked this series out yet, it’s definitely worth giving a shot!

There’s only one superhero everyone’s talking about — Iron Man — and today you can check out three new series featuring the Armored Avenger! Debuting in stores today, Invincible Iron Man #1, Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas #1 and Avengers/Invaders #1 feature Iron Man in all new stories from the industry’s top creators!

An all-new era for Iron Man begins with Invincible Iron Man #1, a brand new ongoing series from rising star writer Matt Fraction (Immortal Iron Fist, upcoming Uncanny X-Men) and red-hot artist Salvador Larroca (Amazing Spider-Man).

A perfect jumping-on point for all fans of Iron Man, this series also features all your favorites such as James Rhodes and Pepper Potts!

Jon Favreau, director of the hit Iron Man film, joins with acclaimed artist Adi Granov for Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas #1 (of 4), the newest limited series from the Marvel Knights imprint. When Tony Stark heads to sin city for some much needed rest, he plans to enjoy the many pleasures of the city — but he’s about to discover a much larger threat hidden behind the glitz and glamour! What do a fifty-foot dragon statue, beautiful archeologist and plague of lizards mean? Well… it’s time to power up that armor!

The super heroes of WW2 have arrived in our time and they’re about to clash with Earth’s Mightiest in Avengers/Invaders #1 (of 12)! The award winning team behind Project Superpowers, Justice and Earth X — legendary writer/artist Alex Ross and acclaimed scribe Jim Krueger — team with fan-favorite artist Steve Sadowski for a twelve-issue Marvel Comics event, packaged by Dynamite Entertainment, that’ll leave the Avengers forever altered! But will these two teams of heroes be allies… or enemies?

Marvel Noise Episode 33

May 6th, 2008 Comments off

We’re short and sweet this week. Okay, the sweet may be my exaggeration, but this is a shorter episode than you’re used to. Because Backwards Dave was kind enough to send in a Bring ’em Back and Carlos called in with comments on New Avengers #40, you are rewarded with my ramblings for a few minutes. Somehow, that doesn’t seem fair…

Comics mentioned this week include Invincible Iron Man, X-Factor: The Quick and the Dead, Young X-Men, Iron Man: Viva Las Vegas, Avengers/Invaders, Logan, Mighty Avengers, and Secret Invasion.

Get it here.

Ezekiel Stane, the son of Tony’s late business rival and archenemy Obadiah, has set his sights, his genius and his considerable fortune on the task of destroying Tony Stark and Iron Man. What’s worse, he’s got Iron Man tech, and he’s every bit Iron Man’s equal and opposite…except younger, faster, smarter…and immeasurably evil. Rising star writer Matt Fraction (IMMORTAL IRON FIST) and superstar artist Salvador Larroca (UNCANNY X-MEN) join forces to repulsor-ray your comic books to a cinder!
