So, now to take a step back from the silliness. And then a step forward again. It's a part of who I am and I have no regrets when it comes to writing a more rambling, thought centred review of graphic novels. Part of
I really have an incredible love for the Iron Man Vol. 3 issues. Busiek really turned Tony Stark into one of my favorite characters, who is struggling with his private live, his life as charming playboy millionaire and businessman and his life as super hero Iron Man.

The single adventures (leading up to an overarching plot in later volumes that aren't collected here) are typical 90's comic's fare and nothing to deeply dwell on, but the characterizations and character interactions pulls all of it
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
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;
