Iron Man: Demon in a Bottle

Iron Man: Demon in a Bottle - David Michelinie, John Romita Jr., Bob Layton, Carmine Infantino I just read my first comic book. I signed up this week to take a short online course on comic books, so I'm going to read a few. I think this could enrich the classes I teach, and it's an interesting piece of our pop culture history and current events.

I actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Yes, the dialog is weird because everyone is narrating their own actions, and everything is over-dramatized and a little on the whimsically ridiculous side. But I did find it very entertaining. This was recommended to me as a good place to start, and I'll do Watchmen next. All in all a pretty good experience for this comic newbie.
