The Immortal Iron Fist Annual #1

Ed Brubaker & Matt Fraction // Howard Chaykin, Dan Brereton, & Jelena Djurdjevic
November 2007
***

Fist is hot enough & good enough to merit its first annual in its 3+ decades. The tale feels more Brubaker than Fraction, & a little self-indulgent: a set of two-fisted flashbacks to the pulpy career of the Jazz Age Iron Fist. These include a fight set on a dirigible above Harlem, malefic Asians & a team of sidekicks (a la Doc Savage). The square-jawed heroism gets a boost from Chaykin’s brawny style.
