Fun Fact: The first Iron Fist story I ever read was an issue of Marvel Team-Up pitting Spider-Man, Daredevil, Moon Knight, Power Man, and Iron Fist against the Purple Man.

1 - Danny Rand turns down a billion dollar deal with China and goes to investigate the Chinese investors as Iron Fist!

This was a solid way to kick off a new ongoing Iron Fist series, lots of Kung Fu, lots of intrigue, lots of HYDRA. I think the idea that there have been many Iron Fists throughout history gives the character som

The Iron Fist's have a long and violent history and The Last Iron Fist story covers much of that history in a shallow fashion. The present story involves Danny Rand trying to protect his company from some Chinese business he just can't seem to trust. Neither story really gripped me.

I was hoping to find something interesting and unique with Iron Fist, but unfortunately it's very familiar which isn't what I was hopi

I picked this up because I really enjoy a lot of Brubaker and Fraction's work.

Given that I didn't know anything about Iron Fist before I picked up the book, I think it was a success. By the end I was interested in the character, and eager to pick up the next trade to find out what happened with the rest of the story.

Plus he was fighting nazis in the book. You can't really go wrong with that.

I’m a huge fan of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s multi-Eisner Award-winning Hawkeye series so when I saw an earlier book they’d done together - with Ed Brubaker, no less! - I jumped at it. That said, having read Immortal Iron Fist Vol 1 just a couple of days ago, I’m really struggling to remember what the book was about - and I’m not sure I had such a great handle on it while I was reading it in the first place!

This might be partly because I have no history with the Iron Fist character. His hand

Iron Fist is a character that's been around for a long time, but until now no writer has managed to give him a personality or reasonable motivation (after all, the revenge backstory that started his comic series was resolved within the first few issues). He's always been defined by the people around him (Power Man or the Daughters of the Dragon) and his "superpower" was absurdly one-trick (a one shot punch, always delivered when he was on the brink of defeat).

This series has the daunting task of

Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun’ Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass – the garb of the “Immortal Iron Fist” – and knew that he was destined to wear it. But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future? The answer to those questions will stun both him and hi

So this is not a book to jump into with no knowledge of the Iron Fist or Marvel's Civil War. I had a tiny bit of knowledge about each and that got me through but it took me a while to figure it out. That being said story was still interesting if a bit confusing. I am wishing that there are some books out there on the previous Iron Fists though I think it's unlikely.

You can absolutely see Iron Fist's roots in the 70s kung fu craze, but I think the characters update was pretty good (of course I n

This is a pretty cool book. I'm familiar with the street level heroes at Marvel except for Iron Fist. I wanted to get an idea of who he was before the Netflix show starts. Basically he's a cross between Batman and Daredevil but with magical Kung fu powers and a long lineage of Iron Fists. I love old Kung fu movies so his character was really appealing to me. The mythology behind him with k'un l'un and shou Lao and the brief glimpses of old Iron Fists was pretty interesting too.

After reading all of Brubaker's Captain America run, this feels like a knock-off of the whole epic, history-spanning story arc we saw there. Other than that tho, Fraction brings these characters to life with modern, natural-sounding (and funny) dialogue, and the action is suitably fluid and compelling in the art.

This is one of those stories that doesn't make you feel like you need to know more about the character or that you are missing something. Brubaker creates a solid story in a style that generates an experience that maximizes the use of a limited page count. An excellent stand alone trade - highly recommended.

Well, this was disappointing.

I've read the first volume but I still don't know who Danny Rand is, as a character. He kind of seems out of it. He doesn't know much about his company, anything about the Iron Fist history or his own abilities.

I quite enjoyed Iron Fist, and I'm surprised that even Brubaker, Fraction, and Aja were able to breathe life into such an "uncool" superhero as Iron Fist. I love the action and hand-to-hand combat in the series. The series maintains some of its camp as a sort of tongue-in-cheek, self-deprecating homage to the original, for instance through the cheeky comments from the Danny's afroed black ex-girlfriend (novel when the character first appeared in the 1970s) making a crack about loving her teammat ...more

While I always have a soft spot for any of Marvel's B-list "street level" heroes, I have really warmed to Luke Cage and Iron Fist lately. I get jazzed any time they make an appearance, and I'm sure it's due to Brian Bendis and his spot-on characterization of them over the last few years in "New Avengers."
Building off of that exposure, Brubaker and Fraction have created an outstanding solo book and possibly the best new title Marvel launched this year. We get a deeper look than ever before at Dan

Even without knowikg anything about the Iron fist this comic is entertaining and fascinating. We go through the ages and follow the story of the original Iron fist while getting to know the actual one. I love Aja's drawing and way of dealing with the pages. Combining his work with Brubaker and Fraction is perfect. Other drawers work on the story to illustrate each flashback. Overall a really cool comic book and i can't wait to read the next one.

How Ed Brubaker took a D-list superhero with a humorous-at-best origin, whose best stories were pulpy or downright cartoony, and came up with this, I'll never know. Yet Brubaker takes the concept of the Iron Fist and expands the vague mythos is a rich world of mysticism and martial arts that doesn't even feel set in a comics universe. It could be Asian Fantasy, with a world worthy of prose novels. This volume draws us out of the traditional Marvel New York and into a dark but creative underbelly ...more

I took a plunge and read this, though my knowledge of Iron Fist and Danny Rand was limited to what I had read in Daredevil.

I was immediately impressed and hooked. Brubaker tells a compelling story of the origins of the Iron Fist and, while telling something new, introduces the hero to new readers where I didn't have to read hundreds of back issues (though now I WANT to) to enjoy it. The art is gritty, which is something I've always loved about comics these days, and kept me looking on. I especia

Daniel Rand looks like a young billionaire playboy (or maybe a flightly businessman, I can't tell), but secretly--get this--he's actually a superhero. Through a great deal of training in the ways of the mystical Orient, he--wait, don't walk away, come back.

After reading this first collection, I spent a little time online reading up on the history of the Iron Fist character, who started (surprise surprise) as Marvel's attempt to get some of that sweet sweet 1970s Bruce Lee/kung fu excitement.

3.5 stars.

I'm pretty conflicted with this series. Brubaker is one of my favorites, but that's usually in the noir genre. This new series is a hodgepodge of superhero, chinese mysticism, and bastardized ancient teachings. It feels forced. When Brubaker writes noir comics everything he does feels like an homage to the genre. When tackling this genre it feels like he is reliant on kitsch and is not respectful to another culture's traditions. I find the writing to be decent, it's highly readable. Fr

First: I got these individual issues back when they came out, so that's what I'm reading.

Second: 2006? Jesus Christ thats so long ago now. Chances are I was 15. That's pretty much a decade ago that feels like yesterday.

I initially got this book because I thought it was a spinoff of Daredevil. It's a reboot, with both Brubaker and Matt Fraction as the writing team. Fraction was still coming up then but I was a huge fan of Daredevil and Criminal and kind of knew what to expect.

This wasn't it. I he

I scored this one as a free-be without knowing anything about Iron Fist. It's a throwback to the old school cheesy Kung-Fu movies of the 60's. What's interesting, though, is its hardboiled artistic tone and Matrix's inspired Gun-Fu action.

True to the cheesy Kung-Fu tradition, there's hardly a story outside of a legion of ninja goons and an ultimate martial arts bad ass trying to kill the hero. The hero himself has almost no personality when compared to rest of Marvel's heroes and villains. Nothi

Predictable and somewhat dull . Thought it would be better since it came from brubaker , although i enjoyed the first couple of issue , but the rest really wasent of much interest. Not sure if i am supposed to continue reading the next vol , maybe its to early to judge a series from its first 6 issue .


But anyway , was reading frank millar Ronin the other day .Found it to be better in every way , even the story was captivating and more interesting .

This is actually the first Iron Fist story I have ever read, apart from his major event appearances like in Civil War. And to be honest, his whole mythology is quite interesting. It's compelling and for some reason Ed Brubaker wrote his take on the character brilliantly. Brilliant since in a way, it wanted me to continue reading on and figuring out more about the character. The art within the pages of this book were quite astonishing too. The team behind it revived the character so well that I t ...more

I think I'm in love. I grew to appreciate the combo of Matt Fraction (writer) and David Aja (artist) in Hawkeye and I wanted more. When I discovered this I knew I had to give it a go, despite knowing next to nothing about Iron Fist. This duo knocked it out of the park all over again. Not to mention Brubaker is one of my all-time favorites and his finger prints are all over this gem of a book. You really don't need to know anything about Iron Fist going into it, it does a serviceable job laying t ...more

Living in China has made me more inclined to automatically love stories set in China or involving Chinese culture or history or, well, you get the idea. For this reason, Iron Fist quickly rose trough the ranks to become one of my favorite super heroes.
This is a well-told story; I liked everything in the illustrations from line work to colors to lettering. Danny Rand is delightfully endearing, and it was easy to care about him and his companions. A fun book, it makes me want to read more.

Enter Danny Rand, otherwise known as The Immortal Iron fist. Our first glimpses of him feature the striking green and yellow gear that makes him such a visually interesting character and right away it becomes clear that this will be a very beautiful piece of graphic fiction to enjoy. Rand is the owner of his own company, but he's not really a billionaire as is the case with other heroes such as Tony Stark. Rand is a humble, if a bit snippy, honest businessman who wears his moral compass as proud ...more
