-THE ART OF THE ANNIVERSARY ISSUE

I have grown used to paying five dollars for Marvel’s big renumbering issues and getting little in return.  It’s usually a 32-page main story that follows the previous issue’s events, and then a number of subpar backups from different writers, or worse, the reprint of an issue you most likely already own.  Invincible Iron Man #500 doesn’t do this;  its main story is woven through a directly-related future story shown from three different perspectives.  It’s all written by Matt Fraction, drawn by four different art teams.  And it’s fantastically done.  I think you could jump directly into this story with no prior Iron Man knowledge and enjoy the crap out of it.  And perhaps you should.
