Iron Man star of free comic book at BX

Iron Man, the world-famous Armored Avenger, joins the U.S. Military to defend America from the dastardly dragon Fin Fang Foom in Marvel Comics’ 15th free, military-exclusive comic book, available at the Luke Air Force Base Exchange.

In the all-new 36-page comic, an evil energy conglomerate awakens the ancient beast while illegally drilling in the Alaskan ocean. When the enraged creature makes its way to Seattle to wreak havoc on the citizenry, it’s up to Iron Man, the U.S. Military and Tony Stark’s allies Pepper Potts and Col. James Rhodes – also known as Iron Patriot – to stop the monster’s path of destruction.

The issue, created by the team of writer William Harms, penciler Tom Grummett, inker Cory Hamscher, colorist Chris Sotomayor, letterer Joe Sabino and cover artist Adi Granov, will be the first Iron Man title in the series, which began in 2005. One million comics will be distributed to exchanges worldwide.

“We are excited to bring the fifteenth military-exclusive Marvel comic book to service members and military families worldwide,” said Pete Alaniz, Luke AFB Exchange general manager. “It’s hard to believe this partnership started eight years ago, but if the reception to the prior comics is any indication, we should have another winner with this latest, action-packed publication.”

“A 100-foot tall, rampaging dragon,” said Bill Rosemann, Marvel Custom Solutions editor. “Not one but two armored heroes. This one has it all. Everyone here at Marvel truly appreciates the men and women of the U.S. military, so we pulled out all the stops to top ourselves and deliver an action-packed adventure starring the world’s most popular movie star. Who will win the Battle for Seattle? Stop into the Luke exchange and find out.”
