    Essential Iron Fist, Vol. 1 Comment

    1. Fun 70 s Kung fu Marvel comics, most of which is illustrated by John Byrne and written by Chris Claremont Claremont does over do it sometimes with the words, and the first couple of writers write the stories in a second person narrative like style, which is pretty good for when it s going into his origin, and not drawn out too long so it becomes annoying One bit that did seem a little forced was Misty Knight being a room mate with Jean Grey, which was done purely because Claremont was also writi [...]


    2. I like fringe superhero characters the odd ones who exist on the outskirts of the Marvel DC comics playgrounds With the exception of Spider man Batman, I relate to the second tiered superheroes than I do with the major characters on the main stage of their worlds I find myself gravitating towards Moon Knight than Capt America or Vigilante over Superman note Superman sucks ass Why Because I find their worlds far interesting sometimes they are darker or full of quirks or both that appeals to me [...]


    3. Born from the karate craze of the 70s, this book is probably cliche today, but I gotta say, I really enjoyed it The villains were pure 70s cheese but they were throwaways for the most part Their main purpose was to showcase Iron Fist s fighting skills I have two big takeaways from this volume one storytelling and one sociological In the Marvel Presents issues, and the first few Iron Fist issues, the narration is done in the second person Things like You spring into action and You focus your chi [...]


    4. Oh my gosh, this book I m really not sure what to say about this book.I wanted to like it And I kind of did, especially once Claremont took over the writing duties But it has a couple glaring flaws which fall into that valley between books which are genuinely good and books which lack in straight up quality but are nonetheless deeply amusing, sometimes even because of their lack of quality.The first bit of this book, where a variety of writers had the reins of the character Marvel Premiere No 15 [...]


    5. Howdy folks, Just got back from a long business trip and decided to stop by the comics store for some mental popcorn Lo and behold, I see a new Marvel Essential title For those of you not familiar with this line, they are big THICK Like an inch plus books that reprint several key issues of a given character group from the Marvel Universe They are in black and white, no color It usually is rouhgly 25 or so issues in one book and the price seems to be about 17 bucks these days Now I ll admit to be [...]


    6. I have a cheese filled love for this character from my years reading the 80 s Power Man Iron Fist title so I was happy to get the Essential compilation with his whole origin story It s an interesting read on a lot of levels, and is a great example of Scott McCloud s discussion on how the US Comics market would warp anything into being a super hero book The first story arc is straight up Kung Fu movie pastiche It s followed by a second kung fu magic fight That ends up being popular enough to get [...]


    7. Iron Fist was spawned as a result of the popularity of the Kung Fu TV series according to Roy Thomas First there was Shang Chi, then a Caucasian hero idea followed After some ho hum beginning efforts by various writers, Claremont seized the storyline and the book quickly became one of the better ones of the late 70 s Early John Byrne art gets better as each issue progresses both foreshadowing and continuing the memorable work over on Uncanny X Man as well as Marvel Team Up by the same creative d [...]


    8. In questo volume abbiamo i primi lavori di John Byrne per la Marvel, spesso su testi di un Claremont non ancora assurto a demiurgo delle testate mutanti, che in effetti non esistevano Le storie hanno la tendenza ad essere ripetitive e spesso quasi inconcludenti, ma sono comunque una buona lettura passatempo.


    9. It seems impossible to me that mid seventies Chris Claremont John Byrne work could be so mediocre But here s the proof The Marvel Premier stories in the beginning are great, but as soon as the 2nd most successful team in comics history takes over the book takes a nosedive Bummer.


    10. It s a fun read, it has a lot of 70 s charms I definitely recommend it for people who want to laugh and have good time The story still has some serious and touching moments which makes it even the enjoyable.
