The Invincible Iron Man 19 (December 2009)

Fraction finally gets himself a great cliffhanger… too bad it’s in the “last” issue of the arc.

Apparently, Fraction learned a lot when he was working with Brubaker, including how to make one arc lead directly into the next, to the point the only reason it’s an arc is because you’re calling it an arc. In some ways, if it weren’t for the… ahem… gradual pacing, these Marvel books would be just regular seventies and eighties comics. One leads to the next.

Only, they make a big deal out of the trade branding.

Anyway, it’s an amusing issue. Tony’s real smart–knowing Pepper will succeed (she finds Black Widow wherever Fraction misplaced her) and J.A.R.V.I.S. will call the media to interrupt Tony’s inevitable fight with Norman. He also knows Norman will respect U.S. law and not pull the plug on his respirator.

And the important hard drive? Obviously, a backup.
