This is it, kids--the skull...busting, chest...punching, punch...kicking conclusion to THE SEVEN CAPITAL CITIES OF HEAVEN. Seven practitioners of super kung fu, champing at the bit to bloody each other to a pulp. A rogue Hydra cell, intent on destroying K'un-Lun from Earth, loads its terror train full of explosives and prepares to fire it through a warp in space-time. A schism in the leadership of K'un-Lun threatens to tear the city in two. The original Heroes for Hire, outgunned, outmanned, and out of time somewhere in Tibet. And Davos, the arch-rival of Iron Fist, intent on exploiting all more

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 10, 2008

    I'm not sure, but I think this may be Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction's swan song on this book, but even if it isn't, it's a good way to end the sprawling saga of the Seven Cities. Plus, Fat Cobra on Earth equals comedy gold. Regular artist David Aja is MIA this time around, but the chores are ably picked up Tonci Zonjuic, Stefano Gaudiano, (who I think is the regular inker) Kano, (appropriate given the Mortal Kombat overtones of this storyline) and former Heroes for Hire penciller Clay Mann, who has the kind of cool name that only pro wrestlers and cartoon characters have. I honestly didn't realize that we weren't looking at the regular artist at first, which is impressive in itself. This is one of those rare books that balances character, continuity, action, emotion, and suspense, and really outdoes itself, becoming more than the sum of it's parts. Immortal Iron Fist #14 is that rarest of beasts, a 5 out of 5 star book, and maintains Danny Rand's run as Marvel'smost quality Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 30, 2008

    I found the art much improved over recent months and the story, as the review shows, was simply amazing. It's rare to be this satisfied over a comic book or how a story turned out and if you haven't been following this book, make the eventual trade your top priority! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Arthur Cooke May 4, 2008

    There's enough good action here to satisfy any reader. We get a big revelation about an 8th City of Heaven which most likely insures a return in the future. This issue nicely ties up various loose ends from the story while pointing the way to the immediate future for Danny Rand and associates. If the next story line is anything like this last one, then it should be a blast. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 30, 2008

    I truly pity the self-professed comic fan who isn't following The Immortal Iron Fist. With a mere two issues left for Fraction and Brubaker, every last moment with these characters is made all the more precious. I don't think I'd trade those last issues for all the Secret Invasions and Final Crises in the multiverse. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy Apr 29, 2008

    The conclusion ties up everything pretty much like you expected it would, although there are a few plot points that should make for very interesting reading in the months to come. Granted, "Brubaction" will be gone, but it would be hard to mess this title up with the groundwork that is established at the end of this issue. I really like where all of the characters end up, I just wish it had moved a little more smoothly this issue. Read Full Review

    Wow. What a way to end the arc. The character development of Davos throughout this series was spectacular as, in the end, he teams up with the Immortal Weapons to prevent Hydra from destroying Kun Lun. Danny destroys Xao’s train. Jeryn’s mom is saved. Orson’s granddaughter, Lei Kung, and the Thunder army overthrow the corrupt Wu-an and his priests. Wu-an escapes, Xao jumps off a cliff while revealing the existence of an eight city, Lei-Kung becomes the new Yu-Ti while Orson’s granddaughter becomes the new Thunderer. A lot happened this issue and it was entertaining start to finish.

    Prelude:
    It's the Seventh Issue of The Seven Capital Cities of Heaven.... oh, I see what they did there. Well let's see if Fraction and Brubaker can land this story.

    The Good:
    I like Wendell and Orson's reunion.

    Some interesting plot lines and developments revealed in this.

    The art from the team is good but a step down from Aja's.

    Danny was really good in this issue.

    The Bad:
    Nothing.

    Conclusion:
    A great finish to The Seven Capital Cities of Heaven. Brubaker and Fraction tie the many plot threads together and weave new ones for upcoming issues.
