YOUTUBE VERSION.

Before seeing the 2nd season of Netflix Iron Fist series, I wished to seek out a good comic book story based on the character.   This was initially published in 2007.   The leading writers and artist were Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction and David Aja.

Before seeing the 2nd season of Netflix Iron Fist series, I wished to seek out a good comic book story based on the character.   This was initially published in 2007.   The leading writers and artist were Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction and David Aja.


My notes from this book(there are spoilers).

-The Netflix show was recently canceled.   I don't doubt Iron Fist season 3 would've borrowed heavily from this arc.    At the end of season 2 he is looking for Orson Randall.    This book is Orson Randall's backstory.

-David Aja's art is beautiful.   I love the way he draws slender, muscular figures.    When I first saw his artwork(in this comic book), it reminded me of Jae Lee's work.    Check these links for Mr. Aja's work  (https://binged.it/2RQv71k)and this one for Mr. Lee's work (https://binged.it/2IXS8eH)and tell me what you think.

-First buying this book, I noticed how slim it was.   I thought 'is this going to be a quick read?' It was.

-You're thrust right into this world.   It doesn't fully expect you to know who Iron Fist is.   It does go into a brief version of his origin.   I've never known much about Iron Fist until the Netflix series.   I learned through this book that there have been many Iron Fists throughout the centuries.    The first season of the show hinted that there were previous holders of the Iron Fist mantle.   What's not covered in the show is that they seem to live an extraordinary amount of time.    More than a normal human lifespan.

-Great to see cameos from Luke Cage and the Daughters of the Dragon.
Davos, Hydra, the Crane Sisters.   I didn't know Jeri Hogarth was initially a guy!   It cements the characters of the TV show a little further for me.

-Orson Randall was a bad-ass and not one to be crossed.   I liked him mentoring Danny.   It feels like a 90-minute action movie.    With Danny and Orson kicking all kinds of Hydra ass.

-As I read the book, I began thinking 'I might have to pick up volume 2.    I'm enjoying this.'

-Where I changed my mind about getting volume 2 was the end.    Danny and Davos kick each other after Orson's death.   There's an explosion and Davos runs away to fight another day.    Most of the book Davos was getting prepared to finish Danny and Orson putting himself through self-imposed trials.   In the end, He finishes Orson in a few panels.   One kick at Danny and now he has to run away?   In his aforementioned preparation, he ordered a large group of Crane sister clones to his side to suck their life force and empower him.   Bringing Davos kick-ass levels to new highs.   He killed a bunch of Hydra soldiers for practice.   Just to run away at the end? What?

I came into this book curious about Iron Fist.    That curiosity turned into interest.   This was dashed away by the anti-climactic ending.   I might still check out volume 2, but not anytime soon.
