Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Matt Fraction started creating comics with the smaller publishers, like AiT/Planet Lar and IDW Publishing. He is also known for his work on The Five Fists of Science and Casanova, as well as a number of series for Marvel Comics. Fraction is currently working on Marvel's Uncanny X-Men, Thor and Invincible Iron Man, the latter of which led to his consulting work on the set of the film Iron Man 2.

Salvador Larroca worked as a cartographer for several for several years, after which he began working as a comic artist. Larroca began to work on mainstream comics, such as DC Comics Flash. Afterwards, Larroca did a three year run on Marvel Comics' Ghost Rider, during the mid 1990s. It was not until after his run on Ghost Rider, that Larroca would gain the exposure needed to become known as one of the most prominent comic book artists in The United States.

More About the Author

Before joining Marvel Comics, writer Matt Fraction had already established his reputation as an emerging new talent with his work on Last of the Independents. Fraction's tale of a bank robbery gone wrong earned him a coveted "A" grade from Entertainment Weekly, as well as interest from Marvel. After taking on a short story assignment in the anthology title X-Men Unlimited, Fraction was handpicked to launch two of Marvel's biggest projects for 2006: Punisher War Journal with artist Ariel Olivetti, and Immortal Iron Fist, with co-writer Ed Brubaker and artist David Aja. Both series met with overwhelming critical and fan acclaim, selling out their respective first issues within days of release. This led to two even bigger projects: The launching of Invincible Iron Man, a high-profile first issue premiering the same month as the blockbuster film; and Uncanny X-Men, written in tandem with Immortal Iron Fist partner Brubaker. In addition to his Marvel work, Fraction writes Casanova, an off-beat series illustrated by Gabriel Bá which recently moved to Marvel's Icon imprint. He is also a talented filmmaker and graphic designer, heading up the MK12 firm with a worldwide client base that includes Adidas, MTV and Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Fraction remains one of Marvel's most popular writers; other credits include The Order and Thor: Ages of Thunder.

Not gonna spoil anything but is pretty interesting story.

I already read it and actually he doesn't, but it still made this volume more suspenseful, to think that he may be turning the tables soon.
Ross Sidor
Just when things couldn't get any worse for Stark, they seem to, and that drama plays so well in this book.

Matt Fraction is a gifted writer, but his talents are never more obvious or better suited than his run on The Invincible Iron Man. No doubt inspired by the strong characterizations of Tony Stark in the recent movies, Fraction has truly fleshed out the character. We see Stark's bravado and genius but also his pitfalls and humanity. Because Tony is mostly a step behind his nemeses throughout this collection and throughout this whole run, he seems truly human. He is "super" but not inerrant, and his losses make him seem that much more "invincible" when he does eventually persevere and wins the day in ways that make sense and that surprise; after all, Tony Stark is brilliant and Fraction actually has his character come up with strategic and inventive wins. Stark really seems like, well, a genius, even if flawed.

In this volume, Tony is particularly human and is still reeling from his recent fall off the wagon in the previous volume of this series and in "Fear Itself." This collection nicely weaves Tony's battle for sobriety and regret with the overall challenges posed by his rivals and villains. Speaking of villains - SPOILER ALERT - this features the long-awaited return of classic Iron Man enemies like Blizzard, the Living Laser, Melter, Dreadnoughts, and a host of teaser villains who will, no doubt, play a bigger part next arc. Though suped up "Secret War" style and lacking their old costumes, these revamped baddies make up for the more-realistic yet less memorable costumes with a bigger punch. Just when things couldn't get any worse for Stark, they seem to, and that drama plays so well in this book.

Fraction also has a tremendous grasp of the supporting characters. The dwarf Splitlip has come back with Tony from Asgard and is a riot.

Not gonna spoil anything but is pretty interesting story. We see some action, a spice of drama, and the wonderful charecter Tony Stark come together well in this story.

Format: Paperback
Title: Invincible Iron Man Vol 9: Demon (HC)
Publisher: Marvel
Writer: Matt Fraction
Artists: Salvador Larroca (pencils, inks, covers), Frank D'Armata (colors, covers)
Collects: Invincible Iron Man #510-515
Price: $19.99

Fraction keeps the action coming fast and furious in this trade, which details more of the Mandarin's plan to discredit, break, and ultimately kill Tony Stark. The Mandarin has assembled most of Iron Man's old foes, including The Melter, Living Laser, Firebrand, Blizzard, Titanium Man, Crimson Dynamo, Whirlwind, Dreadnaught robots, and others who all want a piece of him. The problem is that all of them are forced to do the bidding of the Mandarin under his own terms. At the head of them all is Ezekiel Stane, who is forced by the Mandarin to give all of these villains major upgrades, while at the same time building a sort of doomsday weapon for The Mandarin. Clearly, The Mandarin is an insane narcissist, but he's got the power and the determination to take down Tony Stark, and it's not yet clear how all of these parts of his master plan are going to fit together.

While the story continues to be a fun read, the art by Larrocca and D'Armata also continues to impress. I would say the art has slipped just a bit since the re-launch of the series when Larroca first took over art chores, but it is still very high-quality. I would consider D'Armata to be one of the best colorists in the industry, but I would also have to say that this isn't his best work. In the past, he has really blown me away with his coloring talents, especially on books such as Annihilation, Book 1 (Marvel Comics) (Bk. 1). Here, though, he's just OK.

Format: Hardcover
I find Invincible Iron Man to be the most approachable comic by Marvel, mainly because it stays out of most of the events that are happening in the other books. If you liked the Iron Man movies, then you should like this book as the events in the comic seem to be leading to the same storyline that will be in the next movie, or at least the same villain. The Mandarin.

In this volume Mandarin launches an intricate plan to destroy Tony Stark with the help of Tony's nemesis, Ezekiel Stane, son of Obadiah Stane. The Mandarin's assault hits tony on all fronts, business, political, physical, and emotional. The plan is flawless and works to perfection, the only question is if Tony can think, fight, and politic his way out of the Mandarin's noose once it's already around his neck.

Nine volumes into this series, and there's finally some serious armor-on-armor action of the type that I would expect from an Iron Man story.

Sure, Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 1: The Five Nightmareswas good and started the series strong. But then in Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 2: World's Most Wanted, Book 1 and Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 3: World's Most Wanted, Book 2 Iron Man is on the run the whole time and getting his ass kicked. Then,in Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 4: Stark Disassembledthere's basically no Iron Man at all. The Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 5: Stark Resilient, Book 1and Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 6: Stark Resilient, Book 2 had a good storyline, but it dragged way too long, and then Iron Man and War Machine battle a fleet of unmanned drones and get their asses kicked. Invincible Iron Man, Vol. 7: My Monsters was a boring volume with various filler material basically. Then in
