'I have whiteboard next to me that I can turn and look at, and I have 23 books right now that I would like to do, that are not Batman meets Buckaroo Bonzai, not bullsh*t like that. It’s fully fleshed out. I don’t think I have an off-switch, and stuff just keeps popping up. So I don’t think any idea I have is precious or worth holding on to. I want to deliver a product every month. And sometimes I try to pack too much into an issue; I overwrite. But it comes from a good place.' - Jonathan Hickman

'Hickman has the long game down pat. When he first came into the Marvel offices, he had note books that were like the ones from 'Seven' and he'd say 'here's what we're gonna do' with that Texas drawl of his. It's phenomenal! He knew his last issue of "Fantastic Four" before he wrote his first.' - Mark Waid

ComicBookResources has the new title, as Nathan Dayspring Summers returns to action, and has his own squad behind him again.

Most of us will not be happy about it.

Where is the science?  )

So for the last few issues, Tony Stark has been working FOR the Mandarin. Because Stark has plans within plans, and he also has trust issues.

One of those is revealed.

SPOILERS.

Didn't see it coming.  )

Greetings True Believers!

Fear Itself rages, Paris is crushed and Iron Man needs help.

So he turns to Odin and his own oldest skill.

Tony needs to make some weapons.



(Even in Asgard, they must adhere to OSHA standards!)

I've already posted about Tony Stark's AA meeting and Drinking in Matt Fraction's Marvel work.

It seems that, as part of Fear Itself and Iron Man's involvement in the horrors of Fear Itself in Paris, these scenes might be important going forwards.

Fear Itself: Iron Man has actually been a good story. It's definitely better than the main event itself, which has been largely underwhelming.

As a brief rundown, Tony travels to Paris to take on one of the worthy who used to be the Grey Gargoyle.
As a longer rundown... )
Yes, it's going to be interesting.

Especially when we can look forward to Odin watching Tony in a molten hot jacuzzi )
Very interesting.

So yeah, it's the End of the Big Epic Battle issue, where the Status Quo Will Never Be the Same!, which in Thor-land means it must be Tuesday. Thor broody Odin snarky Loki snotty World Tree fungi nasty boom de yada boom de yada...look a double page spread oh look another double page spread wow these double page spreads make picking just four pages tough boom de yada boom de yada...

But we do get one cryptic page with a beloved minor character.

Words that jangle in your head )

I'm finding that rather ominous myself. Thoughts, Thor fans?

Still working my way through my back catalog and just finished the latest Iron Man. The reason I started buying the series is because of Fraction's plots and Larroca's pencils. They made me actually care about Tony Stark. And the latest issue is just as outstanding as their previous efforts. Click on the cut to see the awesomeness of the interaction between Otto Octavius and Tony Stark. Yep. Somehow Fraction manages to deliver a coherent premise involving Iron Man and Dr. Octopus.

Peter Parker never made Octavius this mad. )

Last month Invincible Iron Man 500.1 came out and was ... an odd one. I found it a good introduction to a character that I already knew. I'm not sure how effective the story would have been for introducing new fans to where Tony Stark is now and how he got there. It's possibly worth reading my Drinking in LA post for a rundown of the use of alcohol in Fraction's IIM run.

Fraction said in an interview with John Siuntres that the hook for him in writing Iron Man was that Tony Stark was an alcoholic who didn't go to meetings. As he's taken Iron Man apart and put him back together, those meetings have played something of an important role

My name's Tony and I'm an alcoholic )

I liked this because Fraction has a really good way of writing concisely and getting ideas across with an economy of words that just works.

However, I'm not sure that new readers would be able to understand all of the events and ideas being put across. It's still quite vague and would be more like a starter for reading up on Iron Man than a book to get you caught up on Iron Man's history. It's also not that good at pointing out which bits are in the distant past and which pieces are current and relevant to the ongoing story.

If you're an Iron Man reader, or a Fraction fan, I'd recommend it to you.

Invincible Iron Man's been liking to do that, and to keep on; post-500's seeing a focus on Stark Resilient's work in rebuilding Broxton post-Siege, which'll most likely continue through Fear Itself.

But that doesn't come calling until #503, so what's Tony to face other than the travails of futurist civil engineering in #501-502?

The former's solicit promises a "..familiar threat [from] other corners of the Marvel Universe.."

The latter's is obviously more explicit, but let's just say Spidey's role in #500 is opposite to the fellow's.. )
