    You know that feeling when you pick up a comic book that reminds you just how incredible of a medium the art finds itself part of? Invincible Iron Man #15 provides you that feeling and then some; not because of an Eisner-worthy script or a story that tugs at your heartstrings. But because of a tale that unfolds like the classic Silver Age superhero haunts that turned sequential storytelling into the behemoth today. Gerry Duggan unabashedly embraces the silliness of out-of-the-box, near-impossible storytelling ideas. Together with Creees Lee, the duo executes a flawless comic with epic character work and even better comic-booky goodness.

    Please, please, if you have not read this book and you are even slightly interested in the character of Tony Stark, buy it now. Don’t let this one slip by, you’ll regret it.

    WARNING! WARNING! Rhodey and the War Machine armor DOES NOT appear in this issue, so if that’s what you’re here for, you’ll be disappointed. As this run, as well as the age of Krakoa comes to a rather mundane ending, Gerry Duggan keeps dragging his feet with Tony, Emma, Feilong, and how they’re going to get Stark’s technology out of these new Sentinels. Could this be setting up the new Armor Wars event to tie into the Marvel show? Maybe, but if this is the opening salvo, it needs to be a tad more engaging.

    Invincible Iron Man #15 confirms the series was designed to do little else than show Tony Stark and Feilong duke it out in giant mech suits. If you’re into robo-fighting action, you’re in for a treat. If, however, you were hoping the last fourteen issues were meaningful and necessary, I have bad news for you.
