    The latest storyline of Immortal Iron Fist is solidly fun entertainment, even if Foreman's art keeps it from being great. If you've never read the book before, now's the time to give it a try! Read Full Review

    But all this aside, Immortal Iron Fist is by far my favorite work from Swiercynski since his arrival at Marvel. He continues to prove that the Fraction/Brubaker run was more than just a flash in the pan, and that Danny Rand is more than capable of supporting an ongoing series for years to come.

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy/David Wallace Feb 3, 2009

    I don't get that impression when I read interviews with him, but every single comic I've read by him has this same sloppy quality that I really don't like, even last month's futuristic Iron Fist adventure. It's the exact opposite of Fraction and Brubaker's work on this title and their other books. With Brubaker especially, you get the sense that he gives the highest priority to making sure everything in his stories is there for a reason, and even if we don't know that reason initially, we will find out. Fraction can be a little more loose with his plotting, but again, nothing is wasted and every page is about respect for the medium. I don't get that yet from Swierczynski, but I'm giving him one last chance. If this story doesn't hold together, then I'm cutting it loose. Read Full Review

    "The Immortal Iron Fist" continues being exactly what it is: a supernatural martial arts comic. It embraces that role and while it may not have regained the heights of the sublime Brubaker/Fraction era, it's still very good. And if you're looking for a Marvel comic that's not tethered to the event or "Reign" de jour, then this comic might be for you. Read Full Review
