THE SEVEN CAPITAL CITIES OF HEAVEN keeps kicking and punching its way toward the brutal finish line. Danny fights for survival --- for the centuries-long legacy of the Iron Fist against the other Immortal Weapons; for his own life, as Davos the Steel Serpent makes his deadly move behind the scenes; and for K'un-Lun itself as the sinister Mr. Xao and his legion of Hydra science-terrorists conspire to wreak havok on the mystical city. Can even an ultimate warrior like the Immortal Iron Fist fight a war --- and win --- on three fronts? Even with the classic HEROES FOR HIRE working behind the scenes? Yeah, no, probably not.

    Easily the best book this week. There's not much else to say. If you aren't reading this, you must have no money because this should be the first book on your list every time it comes out. Read Full Review

    Keeping the focus away from fighting also has the bonus effect of keeping the actual tournament scenes quick and fresh, with no scene or panel going to waste. This issue's fight is particularly transfixing and brutal. David Aja's art is as impressive as ever, while Kano handles the flashback scenes admirably as well. With a great unpredictable plot and equally polished art, I can't recommend this title highly enough. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Dec 27, 2007

    David Aja is fully on board with his grounded style, perfect for an action/spy/exotic locale sort of tale. Hes proven surprisingly spry in coming up with inventive designs for the quasi-mystical combatants in the escalating competition. This book has about seven things going on at once, and each is balanced and clear with through-lines and narrative climaxes hitting not predictably, but satisfyingly exactly where they should. Immortal Iron Fist continues to be one of the years revelations, proof that theres life in the old dogs if theyre revived in style. Read Full Review
