Marvel has revealed that the next round of one-dollar True Believers comic books will surround the Ravencroft Asylum for the criminally insane. These issues bring the Marvel Universe’s most insidious of super-villains into your home and will span 32 pages. It’s always great to grab a bunch of comics for a buck apiece and now let’s review the issues being presented and the cover art.

Opening Today: “Iron Man 3” (5/3/2013)

Poster - Iron Man 3

And now the second big wave of Marvel Cinematic Universe films begins and comes to us via “Iron Man 3” where Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as both Tony Stark and Iron Man. I know I’ve broadcast about this already when we got the first official trailer, but you should know that I eat this stuff up. Iron Man will be going head to head with The Mandarin who is being played by Ben Kingsley and we can also count on Don Cheadle reprising his role as Rhodey and donning an altered version of the War Machine armor we saw in “Iron Man 2”. While this looks exciting, I am a tad skeptical about a non-Chinese Mandarin but let’s see how they work this explanation out if they do it at all.

I’ve closed the means to comment on this one so I avoid any spoiler reviews being left here. My hope is to see the film as soon as possible but I don’t think I will add any sort of review to the site until it comes out on DVD. A link to the trailers can be found HERE if you have not yet seen one.
