This is a story that redefines Iron Man for me for the 21st century. I've re-read this story multiple times, and every time it gives me chills and makes me respect Tony Stark a little more.

Moreso, it makes me respect Ellis as a writer more each time. This is a very tight, compelling read that wastes no time on filler panels, just keeping us sprinting alongside the characters trying to keep up.

Granov brings a very different technique to the visuals - balanced precariously between hyper-realistic and fluidly just-out-of-focus. It was jarring to see such clean visuals the first time I read this, but I've since found it is a great way to keep me focused on the core action & storyline.
