Back in August, I had put up a post about how Tony Stark (aka The Iron Man) was going to oversee the building of the world’s first commercial Space Elevator. The release date (according to Bob Layton’s website) for this issue of Iron Man has now been set for November 5th – the day after election day.
From the preview:
“It’s the middle decades of the 21st century. After a lifetime fighting crime, corporate evil and super-powered villainy as Iron Man, industrialist and inventor Tony Stark faces his biggest challenge ever: building the legacy he will leave humankind after he’s gone. But when his world-changing project comes under attack, Tony must fight espionage and super-villainy once more…perhaps for the final time.”
I’ve included two graphics from Layton’s website. One looks like a Space Station, perhaps at the end of the tether (though I can’t see the tether) while the other looks like an earth-port under-construction. But I could be wrong on both – we’ll see when the comic book comes out.
Mark your calendars!
