It's Iron Man vs. Mandarin. How will Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca end this battle?

It's hard to believe we are approaching the end of Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca's run on INVINCIBLE IRON MAN. Mandarin has been doing some crazy stuff lately and Tony Stark's been taking a beating. As Fraction and Larroca are headed in different directions, you know this is going to be an explosive issue as we prepare for Marvel NOW!

Marvel has shared a first look at the next issue due in September.

Marvel is proud to present your first look at Invincible Iron Man #525, brought to you by the Eisner Award Winning creative team of writer Matt Fraction and artist Salvador Larroca! Tony Stark is deep in the clutches of the Mandarin, being forced to build doomsday weapons against his will! And when his only hope is to aid his old enemy Ezekiel Stane, things begin to look even grimmer. Can this unlikely duo bring an end to the Mandarin’s mad schemes? Get ready to suit up in Invincible Iron Man #525, hitting comic shops everywhere, the Marvel Comics app, and Marvel Digital Comic Shop this September.

the iron man on the cover is in a really weird position.

It sucks that we have to wait a whole month for this.

I'm starting to dislike Salvador Larroca's art... Every time I see it, it looks weird to me....

The cover needs work.

and there i was hoping melter would switch sides.

fraction obviously didn't read a thing about the character beforehand or can't write him worth a damn. or both probably.

The artist really don't put a lot of effort in the background...

Love that cover, but why has Iron man got a neck brace on his armour in the panels?

I've been waiting over a year for this fight to go down.

While I am not much of a fan of Mandarin as an Iron Man villain I do admit this looks very good.

I was a hardcore supporter of this title up until Fear Itself. After this all wraps up I'll pick up the back issues on the cheap.

Looks great! Digging the cover, but not so much the interior.
