“A new, cybernetically enhanced War Machine becomes like an international Punisher. He's a one-man war on worldwide crime...Manco's work is a good fit for this series, with its scratchy detail illustrating a world that is anything but bright and shiny. This is a sordid, tarnished Marvel Universe, and Manco 's style suits it perfectly.”—Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.Com

“Leonardo Manco does a great job capturing a gritty technological feel, and Greg Pak does a great job keeping the pace up. I think this series will be one to watch.”-- Brendan McQuirk, Newsarama.Com

“Leonardo Manco's beautiful art matches the subject material perfectly, giving Rhodes a rough, gritty world to rocket through and providing some gorgeous splash pages...(for the) shoot-'em-up comic with a sci-fi/tech twist.”—Bryan Joel, IGN.Com

“The lines between man and machine, hero and monster, justice and murder can be entertaining and interesting to explore under a talented pen and Pak certainly has that talent…[Manco] provides a gritty realism to the horrors of battle as well as to the horrors of Rhodey’s situation.”—Tonya Crawford, BrokenFrontier.Com

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on War Machine, as the series continues to draw acclaim from all corners.

You guys want a great new series, check out the new X-Force. Trust me. To me, War Machine is only good when applied to Ironman. Art looks nice, but how does that suit hold all those reloads for that many profectile weapons. Just curious.

Looks HOSS. Okay boys, here's what I'm thinking, they already have an idea for what they want this NEW war machine to be like in Ironman 2, and theres a REASON they chose DOn Cheadle, like how they baffled us by chooseing Heath as Joker. Its to match a character in their minds not just the comics, and I think we'll be inpressed
