    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.

      I'm just going to be honest. I don't like this series so far. Sure it's only the second issue (in a month), but still it's two bad issues.The first issue set up a storyline that was done before with Matt Fraction's run on the series. The art was not good (I didn't realize that was Tony Stark at first), but the Iron Man suit was cool.Here we get a story were Tony goes off to the island of New Camelot and fights a bunch of guys named after knights.I thought this was dull, and uninteresting. The la...
