A beautifully conceived idea with some flashes of true brilliance, as well as nods to hard core Marvel fans. The Thor castle, for one. There was a big element of Indiana Jones here, which in some ways is no bad thing. The Dieselpunk feel to this mixed well with the 1930's cliff hanger type of mythos. Fans of The Rocketeer will also love this. The art in places is a little weak, & the script very pulp like, but isn't that what this era was all about? Better art, more emphasis on character rather than style, & you'd have got 5 stars. ( )

I picked Iron Man Noir up because I'm a fan of Iron Man. I really enjoyed the steampunk aspects of this graphic novel, but as the previous poster pointed out, this isn't noir. The book itself isn't horrible, but it wasn't the noir I was expecting. However, Iron Man Noir is still enjoyable and the "twist" was unexpected. Plus, the artwork is very nice! All in all, I'd say that Iron Man Noir is an average graphic novel at best. I'd probably recommend it to already established Marvel or Iron Man fans, but it wouldn't be my first choice for someone uninitiated to start with. Perhaps the other titles in the Noir series are better. ( )

Entertaining, but not noir. This is pulp fiction in the classical sense of the term, straight out of the pulp rags that birthed Doc Savage and his kind. ( )
