Iron Man 2.0 #9 (Kidneys. Liver. Tendons. Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Sep 29, 2011 11:02 am

Interesting to see Joshua Hale Fialkov co-writing with Spencer on this issue, I liked his work on Tumor a lot. But despite the co-writer this issue wasn’t much different from the others, I assume Spencer just got swamped, he’s writing like 10 books or something. The idea behind Palmer Addley turning himself into an infection is genius, and Spencer, Fialkov and Olivetti do a great job of getting his spread across, mostly without words. I liked that stuff wasn’t fully spelled out for the reader, it was cleverly and subtly shown, especially at the end when Haylie is Palmer Addley without even knowing it. I had to re-read that scene a couple of times before I got it, but I don’t mind, it’s cool to have a book that doesn’t talk down to you. I do have one complaint about this issue however, and it is that once again Rhodey doesn’t actually do anything, heck, he doesn’t appear until the very end. I like what Spencer is doing in setting up Addley as a unique threat, but I would like more of a focus on the book’s title character.

I'll be surprised if this book makes it past issue 12.

As much as I am generally "meh" toward most of what Spencer writes, I have to admit that I am intrigued about where this title is going.
