    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny May 28, 2008

    I am what you might call an irregular reader of the Immortal Iron Fist series, so these stand alone stories fit me just fine. If you're looking for a solid story that's complimented by some nice visuals and needs little commitment, do yourself a favor and pick up this issue. You will see why Fraction is considered one of the rising stars of the comic industry and why the Iron Fist series has been a surprise hit. If I have any real complaints about this issue as a whole, it's that the story is fairly predictable and that it has next to nothing to do Danny Rand – the main character of the series. Still, a great read nonetheless. Read Full Review

    I'm not as worried about what will happen without Brubaker and Fraction on this title. Read Full Review

    Still, not up to the book's usual standards. Most will probably be thankful for the breather after the "Capital Cities" arc that dominated Immortal's world for over a year, but this one probably isn't necessary reading material. Read Full Review

    That being said, the issue is still a welcome addition to the small but incredibly vibrant universe Brubaker and Fraction have created in this title, an impressive feat considering they did it over the span of less than twenty books, all told. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Erik Norris May 27, 2008

    While issue #15 is still a good comic, worth the three dollar price tag, it isn't as strong as the previous sixteen issues that have preceded it. A part of me wishes Brubaker and Fraction ended their tenure on the book with last month's issue #14 because that was a kick-ass finale to everything they built upon from issue #1. Instead we get two more issues from the duo and if issue #15 is any indication, they seem to be spinning wheels to give lead way to the new creative team taking over at issue #17. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 30, 2008

    It's a simple story, but well told. However, as outlined above, I just couldn't get drawn into it like I should have. Too much narrative distracts from the actual story instead of helping it along. Read Full Review
