A Great Example of What Crossover Tie-Ins Should Be 0

The Fear Itself tie-in issues of Matt Fraction's Invincible Iron Man have been, by FAR, the best Fear Itself tie-in issues I"ve read.  More than that, they are easily among the best EVENT tie-in stories I've ever read, PERIOD.  So often these corporate-mandated crossover tie-in issues are an annoying detour from ongoing plot threads, and are mediocre at best so that they don't even reward you for the delay, but these past few issues of Iron Man have been exceptionally strong.  The hammer-possess...

In the hall of the dwarves 0

The concept behind this issue is entirely absurd, but it is quite interesting.  Tony is screaming at a mystical tree in a drunken stupor asking to help what is occurring.  Odin finally gives him the chance and he introduces him to the metalworking and weapon making dwarves.  The interplay between these Tony and the group of dwarves is really well paced, touches well on his character (as well as the dwarves though they have just been introduced) and has some nice moments of levity.  Conversely Pe...
