razzatazz's Invincible Iron Man #510 - Demon Part 1: The Beast in Me review

Not as it seems

This issue starts off with pretty much everything the series was missing in Fear Itself.  Strong characters, a plot that is engaging and even a bit of action.  The duality of the predicament at the beginning was well conceived as well - Tony has just started drinking again (though sober at the moment) but the city of Dubai is dying for a drink of a different kind.  As the issue progresses it is clear this is one built more off of the characters and really the character development here was quite well done.  As it gets towards the end each of the plot pieces comes together quite nicely into an excellent lead-in for the next issue and the story arc as a whole.  This series may be up-and-down at times but with Fear Itself over it is finally allowed to be itself again, and at the moment it is at a peak.  

Those are some heels, I would guess eight inches.

They're bringing the heat and Tony Stark is at another one of those low points in his life. Getting his drink on while in armor during Fea...

    Dwarves Against Drunk Flying 0

    Following the events of Fear Itself, Tony Stark has been sober for three days. Spitlick has joined Stark Resilient and even accompanies Tony to AA meetings. In the meantime Mandarin and Stane are organizing a plot that involves exposing Tony’s alcohol levels during The Serpent’s War. This issue was really little more than a follow up and only serves for the purpose of leading into the next event: Shattered Heroes. Though it will be interesting to see what Mandarin and Stane have planned Tony, no...
