    I'm probably in the minority here, but I liked this collection of old Iron Man comics, they had some interesting story ideas and took no prisoners, with several support characters dying during the course of the story arc. I was also interested in their take on the contemporary issue of identity theft. It was both simplified and magnified in the comic, of course, but considering when these stories were published, it was an interesting experiment with a suitably ironic resolution.

    Quizá lo más emblemático de esta saga es que sienta el precedente de varias historias bastante típicas para Iron Man: Tony Stark pierde todo, Tony Stark abandona el traje de Iron Man. Esas dos junto a "Tony Stark es fuerte por fuera, es un hombre acorazado, pero en su interior es débil, ya sea por un problema del corazón o porque su debilidad viene por otro lado" y "un científico loco crea un traje para enfrentar a Iron Man" creo que podrían abarcar todas las historias de Iron Man que he leído.

A lo mejor yo he leído muy poco de este héroe en particular. Archie Goodwin y George Tuska no son de mis artistas favoritos (al menos lo que he visto hasta ahora de ellos), pero hacen un trabajo adecuado.

    It gets a tad repetitive reviewing the ‘classic’ volumes of this collection; just about every pre-Claremont volume comes with the caveat that the writers and artists are tapdancing frantically to get a comic printed every month. That’s the priority; not art, not a coherent story but filling the newsstands. Equally any ‘arc’ plots are rudimentary and don’t necessarily cohere. The result is that we’re running frantically in an eternal present; the cumulative toll of events on characters isn’t even It gets a tad repetitive reviewing the ‘classic’ volumes of this collection; just about every pre-Claremont volume comes with the caveat that the writers and artists are tapdancing frantically to get a comic printed every month. That’s the priority; not art, not a coherent story but filling the newsstands. Equally any ‘arc’ plots are rudimentary and don’t necessarily cohere. The result is that we’re running frantically in an eternal present; the cumulative toll of events on characters isn’t even a question the writers are considering. This early Iron Man story is entirely typical of that; it solves Tony Stark’s heart problems then reinstates them immediately. It has him giving up Iron Man but switching back immediately. It has him losing his fortune and company but getting them back, you guessed it, immediately. In other words it’s pretty much the template for all Iron Man stories that come afterwards, particularly when the emphasis moves from commie-bashing to the evils of big business. Tony Stark is resourceful and surprisingly likeable for the Bruce Wayne-esque playboy he is; but that’s the consequence of the story living in the moment and the ‘out of the frying pan into the fire into the barrel of boiling water into the vat of acid into the villain’s cunning Heath Robinsonly elaborate trap’ nature of the storytelling. The art and writing is terrifically energetic but it’s all almost entirely ephemeral and evaporates in the mind moments after reading. Fun as it is it shows that it was aimed at youngsters and teenagers; the literary equivalent of a fast food burger. Quick, cheap and satisfying in the moment but entirely unmemorable.

    Překvapivě hodně dobrý a objevuje se tady spousta typických IM motivů (Goodwin je mohl víc rozvést, ale tak máme furt šedesátky). A Gwen nebyla první!
