The Last Iron Fist Story - Part 1
Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun? Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass -- the garb of ?the Immortal Iron Fist- -- and knew that he was destined to wear it. But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future?
The answer to those questions will stun both him and his readers, as Danny Rand leaps from the pages of his breakout hit in DAREDEVIL to his own series - a history-spanning kung-fu epic that will shatter every perception of what it means to be the Immortal Iron Fist! Brought to you by top-ten writer Ed Brubake more

    Iron Fist #1 was an impressive read. Brubaker and Aja make an excellent team and compliment each other's styles. This was a strong debut issue that definitely hooked me into putting this title on my permanent pull list. I definitely recommend giving Iron Fist a try. It is an impressive combination of writing and artwork. Go on, go out and get this issue! Read Full Review

    In one issue Brubaker and Fraction capture what was essential about Iron Fist before (mysticism, action-packed battles, robot foes like Mechagorgon) and promise to up the stakes on the very colorful life led by a fairly normal, bland young man. The last page reveal is suitably enigmatic, promising more to come from Dannys newly mysterious heritage. There are challenges ahead to keep this rather reactive character vital, but this is a solid beginning that could lead to a new era of greatness. Read Full Review

    Perfect issue. Brubaker and Fraction write a gritty Iron Fist series that also examines the history of previous Iron Fists. The art is absolutely amazing. Like no joke this is some of the best art in comics ever of all time by David Aja and it fits the series and tone perfectly. I enjoyed this series so much. On the last page though, when we meet the Iron Fist from the WW1 era, I wonder how he is still living. We’ll probably learn why in a later issue but incredible comic right here

    Prelude:
    It's time to read Fraction and Brubaker's Immortal Iron Fist. Two writers I have loved reading and a strong art team. Hopefully that will balance my extremely low knowledge of Iron Fist.

    The Good:
    I love the historical aspect to this issue. It let's me get a sense of history with the character and it intrigues me.

    Without knowing anything about Danny, I'm intrigued in his character here.

    David Aja's art is good here.

    The Bad:
    Story feels a bit off and confusing here.

    Conclusion:
    While I'm definitely intrigued by the story and it's possibilities, I'm left a bit too confused from this issue and it feels a bit off. That's my impression at least. But otherwise s more
