Up until this point, an Iron Man book has never grabbed my attention. the title alone had me. While the news about this suggests Tony Stark being all James Bond with cool suits, drinking, and Gadgets. The first issue is a Flashback story. We go back to Tony as a college student flirting with a girl at a party and eventually meeting her parent after they connect over their shared upraising. Pretty good issue, Tony feels like Tony without being annoying as some might tend to do. His relationship with Cassandra seems full and real. This Bendis guy has a future ahead of him I tell you.
I thought the art in this book was really strong and the colorist should be praised for the most part. I’m definitely considering reading the next but I might wait till the trade based on issue 1.
