I like the fight scenes at the beginning, even though it's devoid of backgrounds. Normally this technique makes the characters look as though they are floating in a colorless void. But somehow it works here and intensifies the action. I suspect it works so well because of the lush colors. They give the characters enough weight that they don't need background details to create a three-dimensional illusion. I also love the double-page spread at the end of this book. Gorgeous. The funny thing is that the interior art looks 100 times more dynamic than the cover art. Usually the opposite is the case.
There is a lot of Iron Fist in this issue and no signs of Iron Man, as far as I can tell. That seems odd to me.
STORY: Who knows? Who cares?
OVERALL: If you must buy this comic, buy it for the art. But save the three bucks and buy beer instead.
Come on man, at least read it.
