Pick of the week (Nov. 26th): Superior Iron Man #2

This week was a pretty solid week for comics. The winner for me though was Superior Iron Man #2. Last issue we saw the debut of Tony Starks new sleek suit and his burgeoning narcissism (thanks to the red skull and fall out from axis), as well as his (dis)utopian app extremis 3.0. This issue starts and ends with a confrontation with daredevil for Tony. Sandwiched in between are more examples of just how far off Tony has strayed from the straight and narrow. This new series asks the question: What would you pay/do to be perfect? All around the Orwellian feel is working on all levels for this comic. The art is fabulous with an overall cohesiveness between art and story that has the makings of something special. I’ll be looking forward to more Superior Iron Man in the weeks to come.
