Pretty solid, traditional comic book starring Iron Man after the Heroes Reborn saga. This volume deals with Tony Stark getting settled back into his life, the new turns he takes with his business career, and kicking the ass out of some bad guys.

The Black Widow co-stars in one storyline, and Warbird, aka Carol Danvers, aka Ms Marvel, aka Binary, also guests when Iron Man decides to visit her and find out what is going on with her over in the Avengers title. Carol is shown to be very messed up, em

Iron Man: Deadly Solutions (Collecting Iron Man #1-7) is the first Iron Man I have ever read, and I'm pretty impressed. What I especially love about Iron Man's character is that he is incredibly intelligent on the battlefield. Iron Man, aka Tony Stark, is an engineer, and he uses his intellect whenever he is fighting his enemies. Stark is always calculating several steps ahead and anticipating his opponents much like a chess game. In fact, Stark reminds me a lot of Sherlock Holmes. They both use ...more

So I have to send up a pretty big disclaimer on this rating/review: I may be the the least qualified person around to be commenting on this or any other graphic novel. My daughter gave me this book as a gift after learning that I was something of a Marvel Comics nerd back when I was in high school -- in the 1970s! I'm sure she gave it to me to re-kindle a bit of nostalgia and I'd have to say that it worked. I really did enjoy reading this book and discussing it with her. I do have to confess tho ...more

I have been a fan of Kurt Busiek for quite a while now, from Marvel with Alex Ross to Astro City with Ross and Brent Anderson, and much in-between; including his fine run on The Avengers. During that very same period, he also had a run on Iron Man (the third incarnation of the title) and this volume collects the first seven issues of that series.

Much like his Avengers work, Busiek shows his insight in to Marvel characters and a great respect for the superhero genre, which delivers quality storie

Heroes Reborn (1-6). A nice new start for Iron Man. I like the creation of Stark Solutions (though Stark forming a new company seems to have become obligatory in years since). I also appreciate the inclusion of Pepper in the supporting cast. Finally, the stories are exciting: I was impressed that Busiek even made a two-issue slugfest with Firebrand exciting [7/10].

Live Kree or Die (7). This arc starts off strongly in Iron Man, primarily because of the great interactions between Tony and Carol [7

Iron Man is back from the dead and has to change with the times. Stark's company has been sold while he was dead, and he has to decide which way his life should go. This is a good series of short stories, with Stark going up against various bad guys and teaming up with Black Widow. I like the idea of him having a consulting company. A good read.

I thought I'd like Iron Man, but I guess I don't. Despite the length of this volume and the amazing artwork (I love Sean Chen's work), the story lacked depth and I had to give up once Iron Man survived hot lava. I'm sorry, but no matter how advanced your cooling technology, lava trumps it. It's lava. Molten rock. You die just from being close to it. As affected by super hot attacks/explosions as Iron Man was throughout the earlier parts of this book, he should have been done in by the lava. The ...more

This was slightly better than the BW compilation I picked up, I think because it contained more issues and a more complete storyline, but it still ended unresolved, with the storyline continuing into some Captain America issues. (Although at least there was a "what happened next" summary page at the end. Saved me the trouble of going to Wikipedia.) It seems to me, though, that if you're going to collect a number of comics into one hardbound book, you'd put together all of the ones necessary for ...more

Kurt Busiek is an American comic book writer notable for his work on the Marvels limited series, his own title Astro City, and his four-year run on Avengers.

Busiek did not read comics as a youngster, as his parents disapproved of them. He began to read them regularly around the age of 14, when he picked up a copy of Daredevil #120. This was the first part of a continuity-heavy four-part story arc;
