Format: Hardcover
As much as I read Marvel comics, I never really had any prolonged exposure to Iron Fist (Danny Rand) before this title. I knew he was one half of the "Power Man and Iron Fist" team back in the seventies, but since that was a little before my time, most of my experience with this character came from Wikipedia. As a result, I really didn't know what to expect from this new comic.

Well, I can easily say it's definitely in my top five being put out right now. As the reviewer before me said, it does spend a lot of time setting the plot up, but I don't think it's for the worse, since I personally appreciated the time to get what was going on. You get to see Danny interact with his main supporting characters like Luke Cage (who thankfully has been brought to the forefront of books like New Avengers), but the "Immortal" aspect of the title is also played up, with short glimpses into the lives of the other people to bear the mantle of Iron Fist. One of these other people plays a major role in the arc collected, so the fact that while the continuity is clearly important (the closeness of Danny and Luke, his former relationship with Misty Knight), it isn't necessary to know all of it in order to follow what goes on. Honestly, I originally read it because Ed Brubaker's name was on the cover, and he could rewrite the telephone book and find some way to make it awesome. I am glad to say his combined efforts with Matt Fraction (who has been a great job on The Order) make this an excellent read.

That good writing is coupled with the more than excellent art of David Aja and Matt Hollingsworth is an even better deal.

After enjoying Ed Brubaker's work on Captain America of late I was interested in taking a look at this series so I decided to pick up this collection to catch up on the first few issues (issues 1-6 along with a Civil War tie in are collected in here). The book itself is nicely packaged as a hardcover with a glossy slipcover.

Iron Fist is a product of the martial arts craze of the 70s and has been mostly a minor character in the Marvel Universe never able to hold up a book on his own for very long. His longest lasting series was the shared Power Man and Iron Fist that ended with Iron Fist's undignified death. Later he was found to not really have died (you haven't come full circle as a character in comics unless you have died or appeared to have died) and resumed life once again without much added character development.

The Immortal Iron Fist series expands upon the Iron Fist storyline revealing new history that makes Iron Fist a much more intriguing character. The Iron Fist is shown to be a legacy power passed down through generations of warriors across the centuries (this isn't much of a spoiler as you are shown this on the first page of the series) and Danny Rand is only the latest of those warriors. The central conflict in the series involves what happens when one of those warriors doesn't follow the tradition laid out by the rulers of K'un L'un.

Overall I found this to be a very entertaining start to a series and a great reinvention of an older character. I immediately went out and picked up the subsequent issues (up to issue 10 at this point) and have not been disappointed. The artwork is stylized, but suits the character and setting very well.

With the Iron Fist story coming to Netflix I wanted to get an idea of what the hero was all about before I plan my weekend binge when it comes out. I really enjoy Matt Fractions work so I chose this series to start. Great story. A lot going on here but it was well thought out and easy to follow. The art is great! On to book 2

This was a christmas gift for my fiance and he thought this book was good. He got into the whole Iron Fist thing from MVC3 which he plays all the time and he had picked up a few old issues of Iron Fist as well.

As I stated in my review of Vol. 2, not every comic book needs to be Watchmen. Sometimes it's just good enough that Iron Fist kicks an Hydra Age through the windows of a train car. I went in without a lot of knowledge about Iron Fist, but it's really a fun story and culminates in V2. Both are worth the buy for $10 or less.

I've never been a fan of the original Heroes for Hire until Bendis reinvigorated Luke Cage in New Avengers. Now Brubaker has done the same for Iron Fist and made him a New Avenger as well.

This book explains where the Iron Fist powers originated, and hints at much greater possibilities than "fist as of iron" abilities. Be prepared for flashbacks, unexplained characters, and a cliffhanger ending as this sets the stage for issues to come. If you want to see Kung Fu in Film Noir style, come and get it!

Don't let the title fool you. The first volume of Immortal Iron Fist, entitled The Last Iron Fist Story, isn't the end of our hero at all, but rather a new beginning. First off, the character of Danny "Iron Fist" Rand has quite a history, mainly being paired with Luke "Power Man" Cage in the old Power Man & Iron Fist comics. In recent years though, Luke Cage's stock has risen in the Marvel universe, and now finally, Iron Fist's has as well. Scripted by Ed Brubaker (Daredevil, Captain America, Sleeper) and Matt Fraction (Punisher: War Journal), The Last Iron Fist Story finds Danny Rand learning more about himself and the power he wields, as the history of those before him is laid out. Despite some slow moments, Immortal Iron Fist is a surprise treat that makes great (and even new) uses out of a critically underused Marvel character, and further paves the way for new adventures and a new direction as well. The artwork from David Aja is what's really worth noting here, and is worth checking this handsome hardcover out for alone. All in all, longtime fans of Iron Fist should definitely give this a look, and those unfamiliar with the character, but are getting familiar thanks to his new exploits in New Avengers, should check this out as well.
