The second part of the climactic “Young Avengers.” It really is pretty much all climax. Jamie and his art army did magnificent and beautiful things, charting the fall of the dominoes.
Preview here. You can buy it in a terrestrial shop or the digital comixology shop in the heavens.
Iron Man 19 is the second part of IRON METROPOLITAN, with Tony taking his first cheery steps towards building his city. Includes cheerful distraction from emotional issues, Pepper meeting Arno, Marc proving useful, columnists being naughty and Mandarin Ring chaos.
Preview is here, and you can buy it from your local comic shop or via Comixology.
Actually, while we’re talking Iron Man, associated press have just announced the next arc – RINGS OF THE MANDARIN. I’ll write more down the line, but basically “Malkeith the Accursed versus Iron Man.”

First issue of a new arc, and the second year on the book. In Young Avengers terms, the first 17 issues were the first season. This is the start of the next. As such, it places certain demands on it.

At last. The Marvel Summit has moved everything out of order. Worth noting, there’s nothing to say I won’t necessarily skip one in future but I suspect this one was one worth doing, even late. Sorry for the delay.

This post comes to you live from the Marvel Summit…
The start of the second year on the book. IRON METROPOLITAN is the story of the Starks trying to build the city of the future, and what gets in the way. It’s a good place to jump aboard if you wish to join this one, as it’s very much me setting up the Status Quo as well as setting a lot of balls in motion. I’m pretty pleased that thanks to everything else that’s been happening in the book, I haven’t even had to spoil what I’m doing with the villains here, meaning the last two pages should be a genuine surprise.
Preview here and you can buy it digitally here.
(Yes, I Haven’t finished notes for 17 yet, I know. I’ll catch up in the next week. I’ve been off at the Marvel Summit, so everything is pretty crazy.)
The second part of our Pacific Theatre arc, and is basically about asymetrical warfare. We’ll come back to the Pacific Theatre in a big way in the second year of Uber.
You can buy the comic digitally here.

IRON METROPOLITAN starts next week which is the start of the second year. A fine jumping on place. Also, very happy with Tim Leong’s design on that title page.
Full preview here.

Big week. Whether or not you’ve managed to avoid spoilers on this pair, it’s a big week.
The end of THE SECRET ORIGIN OF TONY STARK and my first year on the book, and the start of the new direction for the second. Very happy I managed to get to this point without accidentally blurting anything out in twitter. While it’s the climax, we’ve tried really hard to make it as self-contained as we can so if you just want to grab this one, you can.
I’m really looking forward to writing the notes on this one. Lots I can finally talk about.
Preview here, and buy from your local shop or digitally.
And this one is oddly depressed and also important, all the stage nerves before the next two issues which are… well, fucking enormous. Even if you’ve found bits of the comic leaked, I hope there’s much to entertain you in our cheery mix of Internet flirting and body horror.
I’m really looking forward to writing the notes on this one too.
Preview here. Buy from your local shop or Comixology.
There’s a few more comics with my fingerprints on coming out I want to mention. Firstly, the Infinite Comic IRON MAN: FATAL FRONTIER continues. It’s up to issue 3 now, and as a whole should give you a good idea of what Al and I are up to. Also, Shockworker For The Win, etc.Get ‘em here.
Also, for those who are tradewaiting on Uber…
This baby came out last week. The whole first 6 issues (0-6), which is basically 7 issues of comics. This limited edition hardback includes 160 pages of making-of material (concept art, script pages, pencils, essays, interviews, notes, etc, etc). It’s a pretty handsome package. The paperback won’t be out until April, so this is a good way to jump aboard. While it is $35, considering the price of other hardbacks and the amount of extra stuff, I think that’s a damn good deal.
You can get it from your local comic shop, or order it. Here’s Midtown (US) and Forbidden Planet (UK) as examples, but should be from all of ‘em. Oh – and they’re available digitally now too.

The start of the second arc of Uber. The following six issues basically move between three theaters, each forming a two issue short story. This one is about Okinawa in the Pacific theatre. If you’re looking to jump aboard, this would be a good place to do so, especially as the hardback collection is out next week.
The cover above is the wrap-around one, but there’s a bunch of them. Other covers can be found here.
Approaching the end of the Secret Origin Of Tony Stark, we have our final Godkiller adventures and some time back on Earth. This is the penultimate issue of the story, all heading towards our climax.
Buy online here.
