Truly gripping writing, revealing an alternate origin (i.e. Ultimate universe origin) for Iron Man. I've never been an Iron Man fan but I loved this book. The Davidson Co. library has it in softcover with different cover art than the one shown here.

Totally hilarious collection of stories from a writer for the Harvard Lampoon. Each story is one or two pages long and a good 1/5th of them are laugh-out-loud funny. Very quick read, and the format allows you to pick it up and put it down several tim ...more
