Issue Review

Very different to anything else the series has done. Half is about Tony losing control of his company and half is about his increasing dependency on alcohol. And while it can be a bit over-the-top there's no denying that it works, and it packs a punch. This is not how we usually see our Marvel heroes. 9/10

  This arc was definitely not as amazing as it was hyped to be butt I suppose when it was written it was more powerful. I expected it to get dark. Still enjoyed it.

  I think it's safe to assume Tony has drank most of his adult life, they only started showing the reader recently.

I'm surprised there aren't more positive comments about such a highly rated book. His cry for help alone hit me hard enough in the feels for 5 stars.

  He should install a breathalyzer on his armor.
