The Invincible Iron Man #1

Marvel's big new "Iron Man" series is a welcome return to form for the character of Tony Stark. This is Matt Fraction's best Marvel writing to date for a very high profile title.

"Aqua Leung" is a new take on the tale of Atlantic, blending classic mythological storytelling elements with modern comics storytelling. Highly recommended.
