Immortal Weapons 2.0 #5
I don't care about War Machine. Not even a tiny little bit. The concept of Iron Man with more guns... meh. It's a good thing then that Rhodey was only in this for about 5 pages.
Rather than being a War Machine issue, what this comic really was is a return to Swierczynski-era Immortal Iron Fist stories and my only response to that can be a resounding Fuck Yeah! If it takes a second tier tie-in to a suckfest of a crossover for me to get my Immortal Weapons fix, I'll take it. Even though this issue was all setup, I had a lot of fun with it, especially the opening. Count me in for the rest of the arc.
There aren't a lot of artists I genuinely dislike, but Ariel Olivetti is at the top of that list. The over-rendering in his digital coloring completely puts me off. Add in the CG style backgrounds and it creates a distinctive and unappealing green screen effect. It's a shame that Olivetti so overuses the digital tools because his layouts and figure work are solid otherwise, it would be interesting to see the results if he were to simply pencil a book.
