    It's a little darker than it was then, and the supporting cast isn't as lively, but it still works. It still works quite well, actually. This is a book that is still worth paying attention to and it is still one of the best titles in the Marvel line-up. Read Full Review

    Next issue is the last issue of Immortal Iron Fist... sort of. The book will continue as a series of one-shots featuring the Immortal Weapons, and is supposed to be relaunched soon after that mini concludes. Still, this issue is an odd one, and hard to process for me. I like the intrigue and political maneuvering, but a relative lack of character depth (at least for anyone who isn't Iron Fist) leads to a lack of practical consequences for Danny and for the reader. There's never a sense of heavy tension that they might fail, and Davos' near-betrayal isn't really a surprise. It's nice to see Danny win over his opponent, and I like the idea of the original Iron Fist returning to a city of lies to show them the truth, but the writing feels very remote, and the practical upshot of the moment is muted by that. The art, by Travel Foreman, is okay, evocative of 90's era Jae Lee, with huge pools of black and sharp angles everywhere. Overall, it's a good issue, but not a great on Read Full Review

    With glaring pacing problems and disappointing art, the fun mysticism and enjoyable character work of this issue get lost in the shuffle and so does my interest, sadly. Read Full Review
