We will be doing the current issue, but I think you should review the first 20 issues. Start with a plot synopsis for each issue. Then detailed breakdowns of the plot and overall themes of the series. After that, discuss the quality of the art, comparing it to how the storytelling would be different using three other artists of your choice. Finally, detail how it relates to events happening around the world today, and how the book will affect the future of the human race.

Then on the second day, you can review #21. ;-)

I have yet to read a fraction book that has been enjoyable but, I'm willing to give this a try.

You just liked it because Larroca photo-referenced Josh Holloway for Tony during the first two arcs. :P

LOL, no, but I did laugh when I first saw it..

I've just never been an Iron Man fan. I thought the most interesting he'd ever been was during Civil War when he was made to look like a fucking dick, and it seemed for a while that he may turn into more of a Norman Osborn like character than a hero.. but they didn't follow through with that, and kept him a hero.

But Fraction's book made me actually like the guy.

I gave 5 Fists of Science a try, it was ok but not superb. I actually didn't like his characterization of Sam Clemens.

Well, the #50 1:10 variant is selling well, and the regular Cooke cover is selling briskly on eBay UK only.

So rather than attempt to flip it for a biscuit, if anyone who hasn't insulted me in at least 3 review threads really wants to review this but couldn't find a copy I'll send it off to the first address with an US zipcode I get. You should get it in a few days, in time for a slightly late review.

The whole run of those covers does, anyone who buys the more traditional covers is a philistine!
