Spurred on by my somewhat-recent love affair with Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye comics, my interested was piqued for what other books he’s written. And as luck would have it, I found that he’d also done a series run on another character (like Hawkeye) with whom I was a little bit familiar, but had never read any of the comics: Iron Fist.
Bonus: this series was also a team-up with famed writer Ed Brubaker and David Aja, the main artist from Fraction’s Hawkeye books. How could I say no to that?
Filled with action, adventure and a touch of intrigue, The Immortal Iron Fist: The Complete Collection Volume 1 is able to weave together multiple stories that span lifetimes into a single, coherent and fun tale. I loved this read and would highly recommend it to anyone who has even a little bit of interest in the Marvel Universe. Although I know that the rest of the Immortal Iron Fist series was done by a different team, I can’t wait to pick up the second (and final) volume to see how Iron Fist’s story evolves from the excellent groundwork that Brubaker and Fraction have laid down.
