This Week in Comics 4/28/10 – Iron Man and X-Force
Invincible Iron Man #25
WRITER: Matt Fraction
PENCILS/COVER: Salvador Larroca
Issue #25 comes out this week and with the new issue and story arc, a new armor for Iron Man! This issue was pretty heavy with info and exposition but Matt Fraction keeps it interesting even without much action in the book. The sci-fi fans of Iron Man will be happy because this issue introduces a lot of big concepts to the science of Iron Man, mirroring Warren Ellis’ Extremis story. Usually Larrocadoes a good job drawing Iron Man and is foes in armor, but I really had to get use to how he drew faces and people. They just looked kind of chubby and deformed at times. In this issue it seems like he’s upped his style, since his faces don’t bother me as much.
The new armor is sweet, and Fraction actually gives readers a good reason and story behind the need of it. And man-o-man the marketing and timing of this release cannot be perfect for the Iron Man 2 movie because I AM SO STOKED about watching it in theaters next week!
-Cover of the Week-
I haven’t read it but I love almost anything Adi Granov does. Especially his Iron Man work.
Ok I guess that’s it guys, there wasn’t many exceptional picks this week for me but I’ll be back on Saturday to talk about FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
