The fine folks at Marvel Comics will be releasing a brand-new “Iron Fist” comic book series next month and not only do we get some insight into the series but also a wealth of covers and some preview pages. Let’s take a look.
The Press Release:
This March, prepare for a hard-hitting, fist-flying, high-octane epic as Danny Rand faces a gauntlet of deadly kung-fu masters in the all-new IRON FIST #1! Creators Ed Brisson (Bullseye) and Mike Perkins (Deathlok) put the titular hero through the wringer as he squares off against foe after foe – each more lethal than the last!
Danny has always straddled two worlds – Earth and the mystical realm of K’un-Lun. Now, with K’un-Lun in ruins, he’ll question his place in both more than ever. The chi fueling his fists is wavering, yet still he fights on. Fighting to prove his worth, he’ll push himself to his breaking point. But a bigger battle than he can handle may have found him first. Whisked away to the mysterious island of Liu-Shi, he’ll come face-to-face with the fight of his life! With nothing but his fists and his feet, the Immortal Iron Fist will step into the ring with the island’s deadly Seven Masters! Each possessing mystical power and each with their own vendetta against the Iron Fist, what hope does Danny stand against the Bull, the Bear, the Eel, the Rabbit, the Rat, the Snake and the Wolf?!
A trial of mythic proportions awaits, True Believer. Fists and feet will fly when IRON FIST #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices everywhere on March 22nd! For more information, visit Marvel.com for an exclusive interview with Ed Brisson complete with never-before-seen character designs!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Over the years I’ve always been more of a casual fan of the adventures of “Iron Fist” but I did love the series from years ago that paired him up with Luke Cage, Power Man back when they were “Heroes For Hire”. Closing up on this announcement I wonder what you all think about this upcoming series and the fact that Iron Fist will be the next Marvel Netflix series to come to pass next month as well. He joins Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage who have all had compelling series so far. You can toss your topical notions down in the comments section below.
