Book Description

11 May 2010 Omnibus (Book 2)
Experience the original adventures of the sensational blockbuster of the silver screen - the Invincible Iron Man! To the world, Tony Stark is a playboy scientist leading the jet set life - the envy of every man and the object of every woman's desire. But what they don't know is this debonair arms developer is secretly the Armored Avenger, Iron Man! That secret may not last for long when the U.S. Senate forces Stark to divulge the secrets of Stark Enterprises. It's not just political intrigue, though. There's a host of villains and action galore including classic battles with the Mandarin, the Incredible Hulk, the Crimson Dynamo, the Titanium Man and A.I.M. - not to mention the first appearance of the sultry Madame Masque and, soon-to-be star of Iron Man 2, the villainous Whiplash! Written by Stan "The Man" Lee and Iron Man heir apparent Archie Goodwin, with art by the master of the pencil, Gene "The Dean" Colan; the iron man of Iron Man artists, George Tuska; and E.C. Comics great Johnny Craig, these tales are the creme de la creme of Iron Man adventures. Collected in the oversize Omnibus format - including every story, every letters page, and a host of extras - The Invincible Iron Man Omnibus is a must have for every Marvel Comics aficionado! Collects Tales of Suspense #84-99, Iron Man & Sub-Mariner #1, and Iron Man #1-25.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than volume 1 21 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a thirtysome (almost forty) reader, it's thanks to the marvel offerings of the classic comics that I'm meeting again with comics I first read in the late seventies on spanish black and white comics books.

I've got memories of one of the stories collected in this volume on wich Iron Man is imprisioned on a sub and sliced layer after layer of his armour by Whiplash: Armour batteries are running down and Stark is helpless as, with every lash of his whip, parts of the armour fly around.

This is how I recall the story in the difussed black and white of my childhood and I hope to find it in beautiful colors in this volume and, of course, find out how did he get away with it.

Apart from memories alley, the first Ominibus volume contained the cheessy seminal issues of Iron Man and it was not until the coming of the "Dean" Colan when the stuff got hot. The first Omnibus stopped right there, so this second volume offers the following numbers, with a mature drawing and a sense of closure of that ternure. Later on would come "The demon in the bottle saga" and the tech stories of the 80's, but I think that this two Omnibus offers a good perspective of the classic Iron Man previous to extremis, civil wars and armours everywhere by a dozen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant Iron Man Omnibus 20 May 2010
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm so glad to see Marvel is continuing the Iron Man Omnibus series. These massive hardcover collections of classic Silver Age comics are perfect for those of us who want to read the original material but can't afford the vintage back issues. Volume 2 of the Iron Man Omnibus series finishes off Iron Man's Tales of Suspense run, collecting (the Iron Man halves of) issues 84-99. It also includes the Iron Man and Sub-Mariner one-shot plus the first 25 issues of the Iron Man ongoing series. The Omnibus also includes the original covers, letters pages (a real treat) and some bonus material like unfinished pages and reprint covers from the Marvel Double Feature issues, all in gloriously restored color and on high quality paper stock.

Most of the Tales of Suspense stories collected here were written by Stan Lee, though Archie Goodwin took over towards the end and continued into the Iron Man issues. The stories are dated and fairly cheesy, but they're still incredibly fun to read. There's a certain magic to Stan Lee's storytelling that's timeless. I think Iron Man's encounters with the Mandarin are the book's highlights, but there are plenty of memorable guest appearances and new villains introduced here.

Gene Colan provides all of the artwork for the Tales of Suspense issues, and George Tuska took over the Iron Man issues. Looking at their work in such brilliant color only reaffirms why their runs are so highly regarded. Colan in particular had a dynamic style that was perfect for a book like Iron Man, and he had a lot to do with what would become the iconic Iron Man look.

Kudos to Marvel for another well put-together collection of vintage Iron Man issues. I only hope they continue this series on through the 70's and 80's material, as there are so many great stories there that would be great in this format.

5.0 out of 5 stars INVINCIBLE 3 Jun 2010
By Aaron Stack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If all it included was the sublime Gene Colan Tales of Suspense issues ( TOS 84-99) it would be worth the money but it also includes 1 - 25 of the self titled Invincible Iron Man series putting this Omnibus into the must own category. Artist George Tuska and inker Johnny Craig ( of legendary E.C. comic fame ) take the Golden Avenger in a different ( yet still interesting) direction after Colans departure to Daredevil. Although the Tuska/ Craig team suffers in comparision to the earlier Colan artwork, it still has it's very enjoyable moments especially when combined with Archie Goodwin taking over as writer!

The reproduction quality on these issues is superb and the sewn binding allows the reader easy access to each page. Plenty of alternative covers included in the back. I would have liked to see a few more essays on the character but that is a minor complaint. When grouped with the earlier Omnibus vol 1 this book can become a cornerstone of any serious Silver Age Marvel enthusiast library. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Daily Dose of Iron 9 July 2010
By Ruud Krol - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
IMO vol.2 continues where vol.1 left off. So you have the essential beginnings of Iron Man, featuring the writing of Stan Lee and his two bets pencillers Jack Kirby(vol.1)and Gene Colan (vol.2) These volumes cover shellhead's silver age run and are totally enjoyable to any Marvelite wanting to relive the history of one of comicdom's underated characters. The high quality of the books make them better than the orginals in presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book looks incredible! 9 Mar 2013
By TT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Well, I never opened this volume and when I got around to wanting to read it, the price I paid for it tripled! So I am defiantly not opening it now LOL! I guess my rating is based off the fact I got this at an incredible value, especially with Iron Man 3 around the corner.
