Mini-Run Review: Invincible Iron Man #25-33
The 9-part "Stark Resilient" was quite the story arc! Do I mean that in a good or bad way? Read on...
Let's get this out of the way, 9 issues for this arc was a bit much, when some of the earlier more talky-issues could have been compressed down to a point where this became 6 or 7 issues. To be fair, all that set up in the first 5 parts (#25-29) helps make the action-packed moments pay-off in parts 6-9 (#30-33). Basically Tony Stark is engaging in a battle of wits and tech-skills with Justine and Sasha Hammer (the daughter and granddaughter of his deceased rival Justin Hammer):
4 out of 5 stars.
Invincible Iron Man Vol. 5: Stark Resilient, Book 1 for the slightly slower beginning issues.
Invincible Iron Man Vol. 6: Stark Resilient, Book 2 for when things kick into gear and get exciting.
