The First and second cover is cool... but the other covers and the interior art is hideous.
HelaGood - 4/4/2014, 8:12 AM
Looking forward to this! Comes out next week!!

I cant wait for the show. If you think about it, the Iron Fist show should be the best show out of the 4 because of the mystical, karate, and fantasy elements in it

How many covers does one book need?
Mothchild - 4/4/2014, 8:28 AM
About time. One of my favourite characters. The Netflix series hopefully will be amazing

I would love it if Shane Black could do a Heroes for Hire movie

I'm not familiar with Iron First. Isn't Danny basically an Asian-America guy (like in his very early 20s) that lives in the poor Asian areas of New York who finds out he has some grand ancestry and shit? Is that the sum of it?
sameoldthing - 4/4/2014, 8:38 AM
Looks pretty badass.
Gonna get it.

I think the art is really good but the colours are horrible. it's a trend marevl seem to have at the moment; really flat 60s- esque colours

Sid, Hal Jordan is the
greatest hero in the
history of all literature.

Gusto - 4/4/2014, 8:50 AM
But, as for Marvel...

1. Nightcrawler.
2. Iron Fist.
3. Silver Surfer.
4. Spider-Man.
5. Deathlok.

Invincible Iron Fist is one of the first comic runs I ever read...

This looks..ok, not a huge fan of the art. Will wait to gauge reactions before reading this, but do intend on it, always liked the character.

Hoping Dr Strange gets a title sooner rather than later, given a film announcement is all but inevitable

First few covers are nice. 3rd is creative/funny. Artwork though...
LEOSTRATOR - 4/4/2014, 9:10 AM
Look good. I'm working on a character similar to Iron Fist, maybe i'll post a picture of him on this site. Maybe I'll post a few of my version of some comic characters I would like to see on the big screen. Hmmmmmm.
RajunRemyLebeau - 4/4/2014, 9:14 AM
Dat art...
blkchi - 4/4/2014, 9:55 AM

Iron Fist is my favorite Marvel character, but this just looks horrid. I haven't bought a new comic in close to four years, but I know I wouldn't have picked this up even if I was still active. It's like Frank Miller drew this with a freezer marker. I also have not followed what Marvel did with the character recently, I only know him through the PM/IF series of which I have every issue and pretty much every IF appearance prior to 1998. The only thing above that's even remotely decent is the Dale Keown cover, and even that is average.

@MetahumanAbominationKlone Here is the origin of Iron Fist from Marvel.com.

Danny just PUNCHED A GODDAMN HELICOPTER OUT OF THE SKY. How is that not what y'all are talking about?
DatScarletPimPerNeLL - 4/4/2014, 10:51 AM
He is the living weapon...
He is the blade that cuts both ways...
He is Peanut and Butter...
He is Ham and Burger...
He is Boy and George...
He is Gusto and Pasto
He is a walking contradiction... Danny Rand is..

Third cover makes me think of Kung Fu Panda. 4th cover Scottie Young really got into his cover.

"Directed BY"? What does that mean. Is that like the editor or the writer or what in this case. First I've hear of a comic book director. I must seek out this new position and learn what it takes to fill it.
damntree - 4/4/2014, 2:44 PM
Iron Fist looks cheesy as hell; what happened to his ballet shoes?
HorrorPilot - 4/4/2014, 4:18 PM
Enough of the Scottie Young bullshit. Please?
marvel72 - 4/4/2014, 5:10 PM
this is gonna be good,can't f*ckin wait.
Mercwitham0uth - 4/4/2014, 5:18 PM
I'm picking this up when I go to Fan Expo. Kaare Andrews will be there so he can sign a copy for me.

I like that interior art. Different but reminiscent of something I can't put my finger on.
loki668 - 4/5/2014, 2:53 AM
Someone said this looked like "Frank Miller drew it". Damn! That's pretty harsh!!
dethpillow - 4/5/2014, 5:49 AM
this looks cool.

a lot of the new titles they got are turning out to be pretty good, actually. different stuff. impressed with the second issue of Magneto, and also second Moon Knight. interesting stuff. oh, and really surprisingly, the third issue of Loki is great. totally a continuation of Journey Into Mystery/Tales of Asgard type stuff, and they got old Loki running around, popping up in different times and seemingly plotting against the new young Loki. but the whole issue is pretty much a story about young Odin Borson and also has to do with Sigurd. great stuff and well written, i think. i wasn't expecting much good out of that title, but it's something to keep an eye on for me now.

Inhumans i thought sucked to embarrassing levels. great art, but the whole Inhumans pod people thing is really lame so far. It's so lame and silly and it's hard to read with a straight face. I don't see how any writer could salvage that premise. and it's all bringing itself on the past Inhumans so it's just annoying me. u have to see Medusa pretending to be involved in all this junk. and just awful junior high type stuff going on. maybe it'll get better once they get past this whole Inhuman pod thing, but i seriously hate that story line right now.
