June 10, 2010 - Josh Flanagan, Tom Katers, and Jim Mroczkowski tuck in for a nice long discussion on Marvel's Invincible Iron Man. The first Omnibus covers the first 19 issues of the impressive run by writer Matt Fraction and artist Salvador Larroca. The discussion covers the characterization of Tony, as well as the inclusion of major storylines involving Pepper Potts, and her 'Rescue' armor, and the once maligned Maria Hill. Even Norman Osborn came out OK in this one. This story is certain to be essential Iron Man reading as the movies continue to total ever higher box office receipts, and the book does it without Robert Downey Jr.
