Back in the 1970s it was all about grindhouses and blaxploitation and kung fu films, and even Marvel couldn't resist playing this pop culture game. That's how Luke Cage came around, and also his eventual partner and best bud Iron Fist, not to mention the likes of Shang-Chi and the Daughters of the Dragon. Daniel Rand, Iron Fist's civilian identity, has always been my dude. But, even though he made a few half-hearted runs at a series, no one actually thought he'd be anything more than a lower tiered superhero. Was like that for years. Marvel even killed him off, but then brought him back. Then came Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction and David Aja, with some ideas for a new series. And, since then, they've made THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST monthly series unto a thing of beauty.

Here's the thing, here's what they did. These guys managed to revamp Iron Fist without really doing much to change the character of Daniel Rand. Danny's still pretty much the same cat, an unassuming Western kung-fu fighting billionaire.What co-writers Brubaker and Fraction did instead is inject a pulp-era feel to the framework, without taking away the gritty, street-level elements and the mystical Eastern stuff. They also added to the legacy of Iron Fist, now making Danny only the latest of a long line of Iron Fists. Which then paved the way for the introduction of Iron Fists in the past, including Orson Randall, Danny's Iron Fist predecessor and a hell of a cool guy for a fallen hero. It's also stated that K'un-Lun is merely one of the seven mystical Capital Cities of Heaven. All this stuff, you can read about in the first trade (Immortal Iron Fist Vol. 1: The Last Iron Fist Story (New Avengers)).

The principle thing that makes me give this book 5 stars is what it isn't. It isn't typical superhero fare, it hasn't typical superhero art and when you see the story is going to end with the typical "death match with the evil baddie getting his comeuppance", it doesn't.

Fraction is the writer on the rise at Marvel Comics and Brubaker is, well, Brubaker. He's the guy that killed off Steve Rogers and is still selling the book to fans (like me) who cannot get enough of it. In this tale, he is channeling elements of the pulps, from Argosy-type adventurers to tales of the "Mysterious East". Together, they are working genres filled with stereotypes and yet making it all feel fresh and new.

David Aja's art is perfectly suited to the story being told. His martial arts choreography is solid and his noir style fitting. If you like the pulps - hard-boiled detectives to tales of exotic places - or even the old movie serials, this is the book you're looking for. The story is rich and complex, but easy to follow, and the art is superb. All in all, a perfect melding of pictures and words.
Throw in Luke Cage and the Heroes for Hire and how can you go wrong?

Seriously, who would have thought that a lower-tier character like Iron Fist would ever have gotten his own series that is this good? The writing team of Ed Brubaker (Captain America, Daredevil) and Matt Fraction (Punisher War Journal, The Order) deliver a title that combines nods to the 70's kung-fu era that helped birth the character, and just plain great storytelling. The Seven Capital Cities of Heaven, the second collected volume of Brubaker and Fraction's run on Immortal Iron Fist, finds Danny "Iron Fist" Rand possibly in over his head as there are those seeking to end the Iron Fist legacy. Continuing with flashbacks, backstory, and the fleshing out of one of the best supporting casts in all of mainstream comics today, The Seven Capital Cities of Heaven ends up reaching heights that you may not expect. The story may be a bit too convoluted and the mix of mysticism and martial arts mythology may be nothing new, but Brubaker and Fraction manage to weave a storyarc that is ever-twisting and even more enjoyable. David Aja's artwork continues to impress as well, as he stands as the absolute best artist to ever render Iron Fist, and his action sequences are simply spectacular. All in all, if you've been missing out on Immortal Iron Fist, you are doing youself a great disservice, and you deserve to check out one of the most surprising new series' to come out of Marvel in quite some time.

If you grew up during the 1970's Kung Fu craze you will love this series. If you grew up during the 1980's ninja craze you will love this series. If you grew up with Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter II in the 1990's you will love this series. Iron Fist has been a hit and miss character in the Marvel Universe for about 30 years. His longest run was as friend and partner to Luke Cage in the Power Man & Iron Fist series. The current Immortal Iron Fist takes the character in a new direction and brings back memories of those wonderful cheesy Kung Fu movies I grew up with.

The Seven Capital Cities of Heavens follows a tournament between the living weapons of seven mystical cities which only are accessible from Earth every decade. A KUNG-FU TOURNAMENT BETWEEN MYSTICAL CITIES~! For Pete's sake what more do you need to know?

Fabulous characters too like:

Dog Brother #1~!
Bride of Nine Spiders~!
Tiger's Beautiful Daughter~!
Prince of Orphans~!
Fat Cobra~!

Seriously, how can you not love this series?
