Invincible Iron Man #21
Well this is totally awkward. I have nothing but praise for Fractions run on this series. In fact, I would put it right up there with Demon in a Bottle at this point. On it's own, this issue is probably a bit on the weak side. It's not like a lot doesn't happen here, it does... kind of. Still, if you haven't really been reading this book, it may not appeal to you at all.
Still, it's solid in delivery, and yes, I'm going to take a bit off for the appearance of Steve Rogers. Sure, we all know he's coming back, but I'd rather have seen his triumphant return in his own book first before seeing him guest starring in others.
All in all, a great continuation of a great run. Tony Stark has come a full three sixty from his pre Civil War days and Matt Fraction has a lot to do with that.
My Score: 8
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."
