    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Feb 21, 2008

    This issue answers a lot of questions currently being addressed in the current Iron Fist series. It also offers a wealth of information and backstory to Iron Fist mythos. Iron Fist was never this rich of a character (in terms of history and depth) until Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction restarted his series. Here, Fraction goes the extra mile, painting a lush tale and bringing so many mysterious characters to life. This is one of the best Iron Fist stories ever. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Feb 20, 2008

    A great trip through the various adventures of Orson and some much needed background info on the Prince. I'm still left wondering what happened to Orson to have him end up in that opium den at the beginning of Bru and Fraction's run on the book, though, as it's drastically different portrayal from here with the Confederates.

    Comics Bulletin - Keith Dallas Feb 19, 2008

    If you're a fan of the regular series, you'll certainly want to check this out, as it provides a bumper-sized issue's worth of Orson Randall goodness, as well as offering new background information on the history of K'un-Lun and shedding more light on the motivation of the Prince of Orphans (who has recently become one of the more significant characters in the book). And if you're not a regular reader of Immortal Iron Fist, this is a continuity-light collection of fun adventures which exemplify the tone of the monthly book perfectly, and should be a good indicator of whether you'd enjoy it. This is exactly the kind of book that I'd like to see Marvel and DC produce more often: an enjoyable, self-contained issue which acts as a perfect gateway book for new readers, and provides a satisfying treat for loyal followers of the regular series.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 20, 2008

    Even with the absence of most of the regular creative team, this issue is another fitting entry in the Iron Fist saga. Short of Captain America, The Immortal Iron Fist is easily the best Marvel book that ships on a monthly basis. Read Full Review
