This April, Tony Stark gets a new lease in life with INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #25, and that includes not only brand new armor, but a fresh trade dress created by acclaimed designer Rian Hughes and featuring the incomparable art of Salvador Larroca.
"The concept here was to show the 'reassembled' Iron Man," explains Hughes. "So we have a gleaming, Stark Industries showroom-fresh Iron Man, all reflective curves and gorgeous chrome, evoking some kind of high-end supercar brochure from Porsche or Ferrari."
The issue also kicks off "Stark: Resilient," a story arc that will throw a variety of threats in Iron Man's path as he makes his way into the Heroic Age.
"'Stark: Resilient' kicks off a new era for Tony Stark, back in top form, with a bleeding-edge new suit of Iron Man armor and a new direction for INVINCIBLE IRON MAN as a book," promises editor Alejandro Arbona. "Tony's been in a downward spiral since as far back as issue #8, becoming the world's most wanted, going on the run, and disassembling himself. But we're about to get back our true Iron Man like a breath of fresh air. It's a turning point and it calls for a new design to mark the start of a redefining new period."
"I'm the luckiest jerk in jerktown to get to work with guys as gifted as Rian and Salva," says writer Matt Fraction. "I can't believe there's a comic book out there that looks as cool as this, and I can't believe I'm writing it."
The excitement begins on April 28 with INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #25!
