    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden May 5, 2021

    Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #5 ramps up to what should be a wild ride of a finish but if you haven't hopped on the train yet either start from the beginning or hold out for the trade to see what the hype is about. Read Full Review

    Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #5 hasn't let off the gas since issue #1 and this penultimate issue is no exception. It would have served better to get the villain reveal sooner and add some motivation for his realm-ending plan, but you can't argue it hasn't been exciting every page along the way. Read Full Review

    Hama always knows how to tell an enjoyable story, so I'm sure he's saving the best for last. As for Watcher's destructive and great illustrations, they speak for themselves. Do yourself a favor -- if you're not reading Heart of the Dragon already, go get it. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 3, 2021

    Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #5 is an investing martial arts comic that has the hallmarks of an event. The reader may find themselves losing much of the story at times, but there are lasting consequences within this series. The fight scenes are where the issue truly shines as it allows for the characters to express themselves through more than just dialogue. The art is astonishing and captures the combat expertly. But it may just require the pace to slow down just slightly so that the impact of what is at stake can truly be assessed. Read Full Review

    I'll check out the last issue to see how things end up, but I'd probably only recommend this for hardcore Iron Fist fans or Bronze Age nostalgic's. Read Full Review
