    The Story: A fun, entertaining and delightfully complicated story from Duggan. I continue to love the banter and interactions between Tony Stark and Emma Frost. There is a great “will they/won’t they” quality to them that makes them more engaging. The action is fun and I really enjoyed the lighter tone of the story both in its plot and dialogue.

    The Art: Frigeri delivers beautiful art on every page of the issue. The characters look amazing and the fight scene with Emma is stunning. Valenza’s colors enhance every moment and brings them to stunning life on the page.

    It’s taking a long, long while to get from point A to point B but thankfully, Duggan and Frigeri have plenty of stories to plant along the way. As has been teased in the past few issues, Invincible Iron Man is no longer a solo series but rather, something much more integral to the current events of the Marvel Universe. Because of that, less the spotlight is taken up by Tony Stark as more is given to the likes of Emma Frost, Ironheart, and even Forge. The story has yet to run stale, even though it’s taking its time to move from one piece to the next.

    This week serves primarily as a transitional issue, moving characters into position for the brewing war against Orchis. While not the most action-packed installment, it’s a necessary step in building tension and raising the stakes for the conflict ahead even if it feels a bit like a let-down given how many times its felt like each recent issue was setting up a major confrontation. The appearance of Forge was a legitimate surprise and I’m interested to see how he, Tony, Emma and Ironheart work together moving forward.
