    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 26, 2008

    This creative team made me read a comic about a guy who does kungfu in a pair yellow slippers and it was awesome, that's how damn good they were. With how much they set up in this issue, I can't believe they're actually leaving the title, but I guess all good things come to an end. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy Jun 24, 2008

    So, goodbye Matt and Ed and David. In sixteen issues (and a couple of one-shots) you did what I never would have imagined possible. You made Iron Fist one of the coolest, smartest, and most entertaining books on the stands. It's going to be a tough act to follow, and I don't pity the new guys at all, but I'll give them a chance.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Jun 27, 2008

    Outside of a nice twist at the very end of the book, Iron Fist #16 is a low key passing of the torch between creative teams. If you're looking for an action-packed romp, then steer clear of this one. However, if you want some fantastic writing highlighted by some great character moments and unbelievably complimentary art work, make sure you don't pass this one up. Oh yeah… keep an eye out for a cameo by two of the best writers in the business. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 14, 2008

    Or - "Swan Song, Anyone?"So. I'm back. Those of you who listen to the podcast may have heard my oblique references to having a swollen arm and generally whining about something or other. The clinical diagnosis is "tendonitis," which means that my left arm swells, and throbs, and basically makes life miserable, and fine motor work (like, say, typing?) has a tendency to cause agony. I'm mostly over this bout, thanks for asking, just in time to go on a bravado run of reviewing unmatched by any man, woman, or energy being in a tiny scale model spaceship in recent memory. Provided, of course, that I manage my pain. In any case, my return to active duty coincides (in a general sense) with the end of Brubaker, Fraction and Aja's run on Immortal Iron Fist. Danny Rand has been through the fire over the last year and a half, and now he's ready to change his lifefor the better. The problem is fate, as always,has a surprise or two up her sleeve for our Daniel Rand-Kai...Previ Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 28, 2008

    "The Immortal Iron Fist" #16 ends this part of the series with a figurative bang; here's hoping the new guys can pick up the torch and do even half as well. I'm really going to miss the Fraction, Brubaker, and Aja era. I suspect everyone else who's been on board will, too. This was a great book. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Jun 25, 2008

    It's a shame to see Fraction leave Immortal, but he gave it a send-off that matched the level of quality the book's enjoyed for the better part of its run. Some really first class stuff here. Read Full Review
