Danny Rand is back in action as Iron Fist courtesy of Marvel's new ongoing series which coincidentally hits shelves shortly after Iron Fist's Netflix debut.
My Take: I am looking forward to this new Iron Fist series as the new plot reminds me of the many old kung-fu films I'd watch growing up where a young martial artist must fight various masters on a path of vengeance. The only difference in this series is that the masters have the vendetta against the Iron Fist. I feel the plot of the book is more in line with a miniseries versus an ongoing series. We won't have to wait long to see how it's received as the book hits comic shop shelves next month.
