    This title is currently without equal. The imaginative scope is breathtaking! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 16, 2008

    So this issue sounds pretty much perfect at this point, right? Unfortunately, there's a third artist on board this month, one that doesn't mesh well with the other two. Javier Pulido was probably chosen for his ability to mimic Aja's style. Mimicry it may be, but none of the subtleties are present in his work. Compared to Aja or Kano, Pulido's pencils are a downright bore. Hopefully with a new one-shot issue taking the place of issue #13 next month, Aja will find enough time to avoid unnecessary fill-in artists for the big finale. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jan 16, 2008

    Asie from minor art issues, this was simply perfect. This arc seemed to be dragging a little the last couple issues, but it is firmly back on track and looks to be a powder keg ready to explode at this point. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Jan 22, 2008

    Regular artist, Dave Aja is joined by two other artists this issue and only handles a few pages himself. As you can imagine, he's given the task of rendering the action shots, and it's just so brilliantly done that the rest of the issue suffers; the other artists are completely dwarfed by his brilliant work.

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Jan 15, 2008

    Every great series has to have the occasional less-than-great issue, and Immortal Iron Fist #12 is just that: it's not a bad comic by any means, but there doesn't seem to be as much concern for story or unbridled imagination present in this issue as usual. The spark that has been apparent in other issues of the book doesn't seem to be burning as brightly here, and the result is a more predictable and less dazzling comic than we've come to expect from this creative team.

    Very inconsistent art hurts this issue’s rating as Aja only draws part of it. Lei-Kung recruites Danny for his revolution against Yu-Ti. We finally get to see the Prince of Orphans in action and, on the last page, Prince of Orphans joins the revolution, revealing himself to be Orson’s Thunderer

    Prelude:
    Time for the fifth part of the Seven Capital Cities of Heaven. Brubaker and Fraction have ensured this has been a blast so far, let's see how it continues.

    The Good:
    The Prince of Orphans was bad ass.

    Wendell is an interesting twist and it shows the difference between him, Davos and Danny.

    Aja, Kano and Pulido's art is good but it is a drop from the last couple of issues.

    The Bad:
    Nothing.

    Conclusion:
    Thought the revolution aspect needs time to grow on me to have an impact on either side, I enjoyed this issue. Can't wait to read the next one.
