Quick Thoughts on: Invincible Iron Man #30

Invincible Iron Man #30: Writer: Matt Fraction. Pencils: Salvador Larroca.

Quick Thoughts: Tony Stark drives Sasha Hammer away from the big Stark shindig and tells her that he knows that Sasha and her mother were working with Ezekiel Stane in an attempt to destroy his private and public life. Now exposed, Sasha reveals that she had been altered by Stane and forces Tony to crash his car. Tony armors up and battles Sasha, gaining the upper-hand until she begins attacking innocent civilians. Tony diverts his attention and winds up at Sasha's mercy, until the timely arrival of Rescue(Pepper Potts). Tony allows Sasha to escape(mainly so she could tell her mother that he was on to them)and helps the injured civilians. The following day, Tony prepares to test drive his new fossil fuel free car in front of the media. Before he can begin the test though, the Hammer girls have Detroit Steel(via his drones)destroy the car with Tony in it.

This was the first issue of this series that I actually enjoyed the whole way through. Granted I've only been reading this comic for 4 issues, but prior to this issue I was pretty lost. This one was the first one I understood from beginning to end. So for the first time in who knows how long I can honestly say that I am looking forward to next issue of Iron Man!

Score: 8 out of 10.So do I!
