by Marie Javins | Read by Richard Rohan and a Full Cast

The best part about this audiobook is that it requires no apology to fans of the comic book on which it is based. The GraphicAudio production is faithful to the original story. Richard Rohan, as narrator Iron Man, will make fans of the Iron Man and Avengers films happy with his spot-on characterization of Tony Stark, the wisecracking, womanizing reformed alcoholic who undergoes a metamorphosis that changes his armor forever. He’s ably assisted by a talented full cast that turns the comic pages into a feast for the ears. The explosions, sirens, computer voices, and other sound effects sound real. Dialogue is so crisp and true to character that this feels more like a movie than an audiobook. Now where have we heard that line? M.S. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
