    So what do you think of Matt Fraction's handling of IRON MAN? Flowers, pints at the pub, brickbats, or even stray sports tickets links can be left here.

    Never really cared for Iron Man before so I don't know how Fraction's handling compares to others outside of Bendis' Avengers, but I'm liking what I've read.

    The Knaufs' run on Iron Man has been pretty awesome. They don't have the kinetic energy that Fraction always manages to bring, but he's been a pretty interesting character all around since Extremis.

    @Egon

    Agreed. Iron Man has definitely been my favorite comic of the past year.

    My only frame of reference for Tony Stark is the Millar/Hitch Ultimates, which is probably not fair to compare to (being the greatest superhero comic ever created).
    That said, I like Fraction's Iron Man just fine.
    I guess Ultimate Human counts as an Iron Man story I've read...

    solid awesome. immense even. liked the 'iron man 2.0' idea, and as i said elsewhere it is a great jumping on point for new readers. am frantically checking out back issues of fraction's CASANOVA as a result.

    CASANOVA is the gold youve been looking for in the sea of shitty comics.

    its the real Invincible Iron Man #7.
    And i love the Knaufs runs.

    Invincible Iron Man #1 was very tight, finally taking advantage of the killer set up Extremis gave the character, and with that special Fraction sauce...

    I'm glad that someone other than Casey in The Inevitable has finally acknowledged the Extremis stuff. The Iron Man-based suicide bombers are very interesting, too.

    All in all, great issue. I shall keep reading.

    Loved it. Surprised how much I enjoyed the preceding run and like another poster stated, Fraction's first issue vaulted off that perfectly. Assured us he got the character relationships, punctured Stark's ego nicely, and left us on a nice cliffhanger.

    Off to a damn fine start, in my opinion.

    Fraction’s run on Punisher has been solid and so will give IM a try. Picked up the first issue of the IM limited series by Jon Favreau and it is funny as hell.

    I think it's doing rather well. I MIGHT pick up the 3rd issue. MIGHT. Stane is a compelling villain, but I've never been a big-time Iron-Fan.

    Still need to pick up the Extremis trade.

    I am truly enjoying it.

    I'm consistently loving it. I've grown into the ultimate Fraction junkie, I'll buy ANYTHING with the boy's name on (a courtesy I only extend to select company: Mike Carey, Gail Simone, Jason Aaron, Scott Lobdell, Pete Milligan, Joss Whedon, Grant Morrison - I know, odd pairings)
