    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Oct 4, 2007

    In Marvel's stable of books, Immortal Iron Fist seems to be rivaled only by Daredevil and Captain America for being such a reliably satisfying read, month in and month out. The only real criticism of this particular issue that I have is that I'm not a huge fan of Koblish and Martinez's work during the flashback sequences, but it's a minor complaint, and I'm actually finding myself warming to their style a little more each time I see it. The best thing I can say about this book is that I simply can't imagine anyone not enjoying it, so I'd recommend anyone who hasn't tried it yet to give it a shot. Excellent stuff. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 26, 2007

    It was another great offering from Brubaker and Fraction with plenty of twists and unexpected turns that keeps me wanting more of this great book. Excellent fights, plenty of action and enough story progression and mysteries to keep me coming back for more. Definitely a great issue and one of my favourite books month in, month out.

    This is the first issue (to my knowledge) to feature only David Aja on pencils. The various fill-in artists have always been well suited to their flashback sequences, but I'm more than happy to see Aja carry the book completely on his own. Frankly, I'm surprised Marvel hasn't snatched him away to draw a book that actually sells well. Maybe comic fans are actually listening to all the praise and are finally starting to give this series the love it deserves. Read Full Review
