This Story Stays Just As "Resilient" As The Last
The story that Tony tells where he talks about how he acted after winning Playboys Man of the Year award is funny, sad and telling all in a couple of pages of dialogue and art.
As usual Fraction writes with a lot of dialogue that I really enjoy seeing for a change in a comic these days.
The flashback scene showing how Tony fired an employee during a public demonstration is really enthralling and a touch funny. This scene also sets up the back story of Tony’s newest business move.
It’s been said before and it will be said again, Larroca’s art at times is off putting especially when he draws faces. This issue has a lot of one on one conversations between characters which makes you see a lot of Larroca’s faces, so his strong points aren’t shown this issue.
You feel like you really get your money’s worth when you by an issue of Fraction’s Iron Man, and this issue is no exception. This is part 2 of this story arc so you will definitely need to read the last issue to get this one at all. Pick this one (and the issues before it) up if you aren’t already.
