Marvel confirms that one week after its release, Invincible Iron Man #1 has sold out and will return with a second printing in February 2023. The issue, from writer Gerry Duggan, artist Juan Frigeri, colorist Bryan Valenza and letterer VC’s Joe Caramagna, will receive two new covers, one from superstar Marvel artist Mark Bagley and the other from definitive Iron Man artist Bob Layton.
2023 is a big year for Tony Stark, as it also happens to be the character’s 60th anniversary. The series features a frame of Tony working on his autobiography after the adventures of the previous run, and Duggan has hinted this story will serve as Iron Man’s Born Again.
In an interview with IGN, Duggan stated this about the connection to the seminal Daredevil storyline “It’s very much evident out of the gate that someone is gunning for Tony Stark,” Duggan teases. “He’s been in that position before, but Tony doesn’t really have a Lex Luthor opposite him at the moment… I think the writer secret that we never try to keep a secret, that we want to tell everyone when they want to break in, is be generous to your villains. Be good to your villains because they will nourish your story. And we do. We have a very big new threat that has Marvel DNA in it that is coming gunning for Tony. And it’s a different version of a future. So we’ll have competing visions of the future on display. And it is a real nice mystery out of the gate.”
Marvel has shared a look at both the new covers, along with some details about the first issue:
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1 ended with Tony Stark hitting rock bottom, having lost it all: his wealth…his fame…his friends. But don’t count Stark out just yet. In upcoming issues, Stark will navigate his new status in the Marvel Universe in surprising ways. Readers will see Iron Man court new allies, embrace bold solutions, and make startling moves that will affect his relationships with the Avengers and mutantkind. Is he building towards a brighter future or will he be the architect of further destruction?
