    The artwork and the use of tonal colours really elevate this comic on another level. They're used to signify the feelings and spirits of the two main characters in interesting ways. Danny's in jail but his spirit is high, and his artwork is met with lots of bright shades. Whereas Cage is stressed, so he's seen around plenty of shadows and spends time in a dark room. It's a clever contrast between best friends in different situations who are on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of emotion. Read Full Review

    Power Man and Iron Fist continues to be one of Marvel's most consistent books along with being a complicated and nuanced read. This issue managed to move things forward and set up some possible big stuff to go down next issue, which is always a good combination. Read Full Review

    This issue really stacks the deck against Luke and Danny, and in different ways, to really see them struggle in different circumstances. The characters in this comic are just so human and wonderful that I kind of want to look up some of Walker's other work. Has he done other superhero stuff? Because he's nailing this comic!

    Still, though Walker does a brilliant job fitting them in without over doing it, I still prefer them to be on their own. While Power Man & Iron Fist #7 was still as good as the six preview issues, the forced inclusion into CWII knocks it down a tiny bit from what was going on before and what will hopefully continue after. Regardless, this is one of the best comic books on the shelves each month and everybody should be reading it. Read Full Review

    I won't say that this issue didn't have promising moments, but none of them seemed to follow through. Power Man and Iron Fist should be good, ass-kicking fun, but this was just a bunch of talk without much movement forward. I'm over the tie-in craze at Marvel and just need them to focus on the stories they're telling. Read Full Review

    While there are some highlights to the art, it's a shame to see Power Man and Iron Fist swing and miss like this. Given the clearly defined personalities and philosophies of Luke Cage and Danny Rand, you'd think there would be a lot of grist for the mill when it comes to Civil War II, but that winds up being largely window-dressing here, as Walker takes way too long to get to the real meat of his storyline. Flaviano's artwork alone should draw some eyes here, but that doesn't feel like a sufficient hook for this well-intentioned but ultimately flawed book. Read Full Review
