Man, I don't know how I missed this great story! (...well, Iron First was never a grade A super hero...well, that's my excuse).
This is a great storyline. Beautifully written and drawn. Definitely a great addition to my collection
I have read NOTHING about Danny Rand, and did not feel out of the loop throughout this collection. Great little snippets about past Iron Fists, and a great way to get started on this hero.
And then Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction and David Aja realized the truth behind Iron Fist: That he is a kung fu billionaire. And it all clicked into place.
While we knew from Danny Rand's origin as Iron Fist (who can channel his chi into his fist until it "becomes a think like unto iron." Thus the name.) that there had been possessors of the Iron Fist before him, but it was not until now, in the Immortal Iron Fist, that anyone thought that worth exploring in any significant fashion.
This is a tremendous compilation of a far-too-short series. Brubaker and Fraction create compelling stories about the Iron Fist tradition, how Danny Rand fits into that tradition, and tell tales of the Seven Cities of Heaven. David Aja, the artist, however was the true breakout star of this series. The man is a revelation. His sparse, spare style is perfect for capturing the motion that is the hallmark of good martial arts. Watching the product of Aja's obviously deep thoughts on representation of motion in an inherently still medium gave me goosebumps.
I read this series when it came out in the initial periodicals and purchased a few of the initial compilations, but I just had to buy this compilation that collects the entire series. It is, without doubt, the best Iron Fist story ever. When it was coming out monthly, though, it wasn't just the best Iron Fist story, but one of the best stories that Marvel put out, period.
