Being too hard
Being to hard on what? This book. I read a few reviews before going in to see what the general mindset on the issue was and I see folks upset. Most folks are referring to how great Fraction`s run was, but I disagree. I was never a fan of his Iron Man, but that isn't why you're reading this, if you are at all, so let's get to it.
Issue 2 of Iron Man is a strong issue with a great story, but it does have weak points. Kinks in the armor, no pun intended. I'm not sure about anyone else but I was a tad bit confused on how we got to this issue from the ending of issue 1. I also wasn't sure when the thought boxes were Tony or the villain. The story was good, and very entertaining but it wasn't the best ever. As for the artwork, I like Land`s work, it has a ritzy feel that fits the book and even sometimes reminds me of Steve Epting which is not a bad thing. It isn't the best work I have ever seen but it's okay. I guess, in the end, it is an okay issue. The story is good, not stellar, but good and the artwork is about average. I say it's a buy for any shell head, so enjoy it for what it is.
