Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all gods’ creatures for profit.

It’s also a darkly comedic fantasy series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Hobbit Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!

Press Release

You think know the story of Tony Stark. Billionaire genius. Armored Avenger. But this October, everything you know will change in an instant as The Secret Origin of Tony Stark comes to its shocking conclusion in IRON MAN #17!

From blockbuster creative team Kieron Gillen, Carlo Pagulayan and Scott Hanna, evil android 451 has all the answers when it comes to Tony Stark — or does he? Nothing will ever be the same as the true secret of Tony’s past is revealed!

“Building this has been an incredible experience on many levels”, said series editor Mark Paniccia. “I asked Kieron to come up with something big for IRON MAN’s 50th Anniversary and he came back with an idea that was big and extremely bold. I didn’t think it would fly with the higher-ups. But they saw the potential to expand Tony’s character and knew what Kieron had was not just great but an important story…a story that embraced the kind of realism that Marvel is known for. Tony’s world will change…hell, anybody’s would.”

“We’ve got a character coming into Tony’s life that no one will expect—but fans will love”, adds Paniccia. “There’s a sense of destiny here, and the stories that will follow are leading to more intense moments and some really cool new villains.”

With his life turned upside-down and his enemies closing in, can the Invincible Iron Man live up to his name? Everything changes in the mind-blowing IRON MAN #17!
