Comics I Love - Layton and Michelinie's Iron Man

What I would think is the main characteristic of Bob Layton and David Michelinie's Iron Man would be the sheer HEFT of the comics.

These were two guys who were not afraid to throw all their good ideas into the pot at once, and with Michelinie, they had a scripter talented enough to make the ideas work, cohesively.

Look at the alcholism storyline! Powerful stuff, and yet they managed to do it in a very short period of time, while later on, Denny O'Neill revisited the story for a long period of time.

The single issue I would point to, though, would probably be one of the Justin Hammer issues. Those were just PACKED with action.

Fun stuff.

Not the deepest of stories, but fun, action-oriented stories.

I loved it.
