Read full description of the books:
Tony Stark just had his brain rebooted to get him out of a vegetative state, but he’s got a few problems to deal with. Since his back-up data was a little dated, he doesn’t remember some recent events like Marvel’s Civil War or that his company was destroyed. With the loss of his fortune, his reputation in ruins and half the superhero community pissed at him, you’d think Tony would want to go back into the coma.
Ah, but you can’t keep a good Iron Man down. Tony hits up Reed Richards for some parts and soon has cobbled together his most advanced Iron Man suit yet, and he launches a new company called Stark Resilient. But Tony is changing up his business model. He wants to make a non-weaponized form of his repulser technology cheap and available as an energy source for the world, and he’s got a lot of plans as to how to make that happen. Some of his old business rivals from Hammer Corp. have their own ideas about using all the Stark tech they’ve collected to make a fortune selling arms to anyone with the cash.
Yet another great Iron Man collection from writer Matt Fraction. I particularly like how Fraction portrays Stark. He shows him as an ambitious genuis with a do-gooder streak, but still gives him a giant ego while keeping him likeable. There’s a great bit in this one where Tony explains how he still thinks he was right about the things he did that caused the Civil War and will only concede that he probably should have gone about it in a different way.
I also find it intriguing that Fraction hasn’t even had Iron Man fight anybody in about a year’s worth of issues, but it’s still one of the most entertaining storylines I’ve read in a superhero comic in some time.

Read information about the author"How he got started in comics: In 1983, when Fraction was 7 years old and growing up in Kansas City, Mo., he became fascinated by the U.S. invasion of Grenada and created his own newspaper to explain the event. "I've always been story-driven, telling stories with pictures and words," he said.
Education and first job: Fraction never graduated from college. He stopped half a semester short of an art degree at Kansas City Art Institute in Missouri in 1998 to take a job as a Web designer and managing editor of a magazine about Internet culture.
"My mother was not happy about that," he said.
But that gig led Fraction and his co-workers to split off and launch MK12, a boutique graphic design and production firm in Kansas City that created the opening credits for the James Bond film "Quantum of Solace."
Big break: While writing and directing live-action shoots at MK12, Fraction spent his spare time writing comics and pitching his books each year to publishers at Comic-Con. Two books sold: "The Last of the Independents," published in 2003 by AiT/Planet Lar, and "Casanova," published in 2006 by Image Comics.
Fraction traveled extensively on commercial shoots. Then his wife got pregnant. So Fraction did what any rational man in his position would do -- he quit his job at MK12 to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time comic book writer.
Say what? "It was terrifying," said Fraction, who now lives in Portland, Ore. "I was married. We had a house. We had a baby coming. And I just quit my job."
Marvel hired Fraction in June 2006, thanks largely to the success of his other two comics. "I got very lucky," he half-joked. "If it hadn't worked out, I would have had to move back in with my parents.
