really liked it

I picked this up for Immonen's art and it did not disappoint. As an author Fraction has outdone himself on Iron Man, so I was hoping for more in this epic Fear Itself. It was enjoyable, but it lacked any real pathos, and felt much to discordant to really be dramatic. It was classic sturm und drang, but did little in terms of character development and world building. Fraction usually excells at this in Iron Man, and this just fell flat.

But the art was gorgeous. Four stars for that alone.
