    Where this issue falls painfully short is the art. Howard Chaykin has been all over the underbelly of the Marvel Universe lately, and his style obviously works better on some series than others. I'm rather spoiled by David Aja's fluid pencils, and Chaykin doesn't strike me as the most suitable replacement. In fact, I'm convinced Danny Rand is a Skrull now. Why? Well, take a look at the wrinkles below his lips in every panel and tell me it doesn't look a little bit Skrully. The flashbacks are handled by Dan Brereton, who doesn't impress except for a short sequence that is painted over by Jelena Djurdjevic. Her style is close enough to that of her husband's so as to be nearly identical, and this is a very good thing. If both Djurdjevics would do more interior work at Marvel I would be a much happier comic book fan. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace/Paul Brian McCoy Oct 1, 2007

    Paul: Dont worry, I think Ive raved enough for both of us. I think this is another consistently strong effort by the entire team of writers and artists. Immortal Iron Fist may consistently be the strongest title Marvel is publishing, and Ive yet to be disappointed with an installment. I highly recommend the series as a whole, and this annual, in particular. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 26, 2007

    While a fun look back at the life of Orson Randall, it offered no major developments and does not seem to have any impact on current events or the tournament currently going on in the regular series. Iron Fist fans will enjoy this issue, but everyone else should just stick with the main book. This barely compares to the excellent issue #7 flashback story and I'm kind of let down by what I got here. I guess too much of a good thing is an apt saying for two Iron Fist issues this week.
