A Review of:
Iron Man 3 Prelude #2
Concluding the prelude into Iron Man 3, issue #2 of this limited series picks up where the first issue left off. After reading this I am now even more excited for Iron Man 3, than I was before.
Writer: Christos Gage
Artist: Steve Kurth

The perfect prelude to the upcoming highly-anticipated Marvel Studios film, Iron Man 3 • As Tony Stark prepares for his next venture, he tasks War Machine with a mission of his own. • War Machine faces his biggest test as a hero, while Iron Man takes on the Battle of New York!
I love the story in this prelude, because it takes place during what happened in Marvel’s The Avengers. It continue the story of War Machine on a mission to find out just who is behind all the attacks, with crazy defective HammerTech.
The Good: Once again the art in the book is fantastic. It sets up the third Iron Man film very well. Do you need to read this, and the #1 issue, before seeing Iron Man 3? No, but if you want some behind the scenes looks into what has happened between The Avengers film, and Iron Man 3, then this 2 issue series is for you. The writing is very well done, and I love home they just bring the Marvel Cinematic Universe into comic form.
The Bad: There isn’t much bad to say about this second issue. I love Rhodey’s attitude towards everything, and even though he gets into a few tough scrapes, he always bounces back. I can’t even say anything bad about the dialogue, it was well executed. I still think the designs on all the characters out of costume do not resemble the actors, but it’s understandable if they couldn’t get them to pose.
After reading both prelude books, I can definitely say you should pick these up in anticipation for Iron Man 3 in theaters May 3, 2013!!!!
