Here’s the blurb:
“Up-and-coming talents David Michelinie, Bob Layton and John Romita Jr. joined forces to take on Marvel’s Golden Avenger in 1978 – and captured lighting in a bottle! Now, their history-making first run is collected in one massive volume! From Tony Stark’s taboo-shattering struggle with alcoholism to Iron Man’s legendary clash with Dr. Doom during King Arthur’s time, this one’s got it all – including Justin Hammer’s introduction; a brutal battle against the Hulk; the menaces of Madame Masque, the Melter, Blizzard, Whiplash, the Dreadnoughts, the Titanium Man and more; and the debut of Tony’s outer-space and stealth armours!”
Collecting Iron Man #115- 157, the omnibus features the ground-breaking Demon in a Bottle storyline, which inspired the movie, Iron Man 2. As Bethany Cabe says:
“Can’t you see you’re becoming your own worst enemy? And you’re trying to kill that enemy with a bottle…”
I’m sure this one will be popular…
