Iron Man’s New Armour

Tony Stark’s had more suits of hi-tech armour than I’ve had hot dinners. He’s had his current one for a while though, so it’s time for another update. Looks pretty spiffy I gotta say. Details from Marvel below.

Marvel Unleashes Iron Man’s New Armor

Marvel is proud to unveil a new look for Iron Man, signaling a new era for Tony Stark and the Marvel Universe! From the minds of Eisner Award-winning series writer Matt Fraction and Ryan Meinerding, designer on the Iron Man and Thor films, comes the most bleeding edge, out of this world armor you’ve ever seen! Following the sold-out “Stark Disassembled” storyline, the Marvel Universe still needs its armored champion and a new mission requires a new kind of armor! But when you see just what Iron Man has planned for the Marvel Universe, your jaw will be on the floor! There’s never been a super hero like the new Iron Man!

“The inspiration for the new design came from thinking about a sleeker, leaner, tougher Iron Man,” revealed Fraction. “If technology is increasingly getting smaller and lighter it seems like the Iron Man should do the same: ergonomic and aerodynamic. We were looking for something that felt as sleek and glossy as a sports car Tony Stark would covet.  I love what we’ve come up with. It feels like the next evolutionary step in the Iron Man’s design.”

A bold new direction for Iron Man starts here with the perfect jumping on point for readers old and new alike, as the all-new Iron Man makes his debut in Invincible Iron Man #25, on-sale this April!

Punisher Wars

Something strange is going to happen with the Punisher in November, judging by Marvel’s latest teaser simply image entitled Frankencastle. Also just released is Steve Kurth’s variant cover to Ultimate Armor Wars #1, which is being released on September 16. Marvel describes it thusly:

Ultimate Armor Wars #1

War Machine Pics

With Iron Man occupied in the  Savage Land , the Skrulls may think they’ve eliminated their armored opposition, but War Machine (ie, Tony Star’ks mate, James Rhodes) is out to prove them wrong in this must-read Secret Invasion tie-in! Iron Man: Director S.H.I.E.L.D #33, from acclaimed Thunderbolts writer Christos Gage and fan favorite artist Sean Chen (Nova), kicks off “War Machine: Weapon on S.H.I.E.L.D,” which redefines War Machine’s place in the Marvel Universe as a result of Secret Invasion…and setting the stage of his upcoming ongoing series! A major new chapter in Tony and Rhodey’s history begins right here!

The ish goes on sale September 17. A preview art of the first four interior pages below, and the cover by Adi Granov, courtesy of the fine folks at Marvel.

Tony’s New Covers & Tori’s New Blog

Tony Stark’s new series, Invincible Iron Man #3, from writer Matt Fraction and artist Salvador Larocca has sold out. So Marvel have provided three new covers for the second printing of that issue, which is on sale now.

All three new covers are supplied by regular artist Larocca and represent a different stage in Tony Stark’s life.

Shellhead has had more costume changes than a fashion show. Here’s a look at three classics.

Tori Amos’ Comic Book Tattoo, a massive 480 page anthology book is getting a lot of buzz these days.

The tome from Image Comics is a collection of well-known and indie writers and artists who are using some of Tori’s songs as jumping off points for their own unique tales.

It’s an interesting cross-over between the two worlds of music and comics. There is a nice piece on the beginnings of the project and an interview with Tori herself and spearhead of the project, editor Rantz Hoseley in the latest issue of CSN (a pamphlet/mag which should be available for free at your local comic shop). A new blog has also been launched detailing the creative process and excerpts from scripts and artwork. For those interested in the project or just the working of a comic creator’s mind, this may be an invaluable resource.
