Iron Man : Armor Wars (tpb)

by lucstclair on January 22, 2012

Millionaire playboy industrialist Tony Stark’s Iron Man technology has been stolen and duplicated. A lot people could get hurt as a result and Tony will not rest until he gets it all back. Friends, colleagues and even the government, these are just obstacles in the way for him to set things right, at any cost! Featuring Jim Rhodes, Stiltman, Controller, Stingray, The Raiders, Nick Fury, The West Coast Avengers, Titanium Man & Crimson Dynamo.


This is a classic old school Iron Man story. Back in the day, Armor Wars was my first introduction to the world of Tony Stark & Iron Man and I’ve been a fan ever since. Comics have evolved since the 80’s with less thought bubbles, better hair styles (yes Tony had a perm), intricate plot lines, painted illustrations and a more modern approach to sex & violence. I'm not saying that the old stuff was bad, it was just different and for a 15-year old kid, it was pure comic book magic. Written by David Michelinie (Amazing Spider-Man), Bob Layton and Barry Windsor-Smith. Illustrated by M.D Bright (Green Lantern : Emerald Dawn) and Barry Windsor-Smith (Weapon X). Originally published as Iron Man #225-#232. From Marvel Comics.
