Taking Tony Stark back to and making him the pulp ideal of his science hero roots is a fantastic juxtaposition for the character. The title Iron Man Pulp would’ve likely been a bit more accurate, though
I imagine it would’ve stirred up some weird images in readers. The integration of villains better suited for science pulp stories adds
greatly to the feel of the book, as does the appearance of a gruff and handlebar mustached Jarvis.

Writer Scott Snyder takes Stark in a more Doc Savage direction, seemingly moving to the far edge of the Noir label. Garcia and Ruggero’s art and pencils feel a little wrong for this style of book at first, more Spider-Man Noir than X-Men Noir, but their work grew on me as the issue progressed.

It’s got a great ending too, drawing Tony and Rhodey into a pulp explorer adventure that I can’t wait to read.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 3 - Good
