The Iron Man
A modern fairy tale sizzling with genius. Mighty heroes, terrible villains, incredible black-and-white art. Imagine a superhero story written by one of the greatest poets ever. Now you needn’t just imagine: this is it. At first, the Iron Man wreaks dreadful destruction. He cannot be kept down. But then the terrible Space-Bat-Angel-Dragon attacks Earth from outer space. Only the Iron Man can save us… Written by former Poet Laureate Ted Hughes, this is utterly dramatic storytelling that burns with fierce power.
