That cover is a flat-out lie. A beautifully drawn and colored lie, but a lie nonetheless. Ironheart is in this issue. But she and Tony do not, in fact, go “one-on-one.”

Naturally, the plot thickens in this issue in regard to the plot to kill Tony Stark. I can’t say I was particularly moved one way or the other on this one. Much like issue #1, issue #2 was just sort of…there. I’m waiting for business to pick up.

The Invincible Iron Man #1 Micro-Review – A Passing Interest

This issue is something of an oddity for me, in that I’m a fan of the handle Gerry Duggan and the artists respectfully have on the Iron Man character and his world. I also like the framing device Duggan is using, i.e. Tony Stark writing his autobiography.

But somehow, the story just didn’t hook me. It didn’t turn me off, and I’ll likely still come back to check out issue #2. But I’m not dying to see what happens next. It’s more like I have a passing interest in seeing what happens next.

Epic Covers: The Invincible Iron Man #1 by Kael Ngu

It’s tough to go wrong with the classic red and gold Iron Man suit. It’s just that iconic, especially in the last 15 years with the advent of the MCU.

With that in mind, did Kael Ngu play it a bit safe with this simple straight-ahead shot of Iron Man mid-battle? Maybe. I’d counter that it’s simple, yet no less effective. There’s certainly nothing simple about the level of detail Ngu put into this cover. For my money, it’s very much worthy of the character and his rich legacy.
