Immortal Iron Fist #21
Written by: Dwayne Swierczynski
Art by: Timothy Green II
Alright, you win Mr. Swierczynski ... I had every intention of dropping this book when the very respectable and incredibly interesting run by Mr. Fraction and Mr. Brubaker had ended. But oh no ... I had to read one more issue and see if this new guy was going to be any good ... and now 5 issues later it is still a top of the pile read (I read the books I am looking forward to the most first ... usually). This is really one of the books that has presented the most pleasant reading experience of the titles that I am following this year. Regular artist Travel Foreman has brought a sense of kinetic movement and style to the book that I wasn't sure I was going to like but lo and behold I find myself lingering on beautiful panels and wonderful pages every issue. This issue guest artist Timothy Green II brought his fantastic sense for sci-fi to the future of Iron Fist and brought a very big smile to my face (I admit that I was already a fan of his work, having read Annihilation: Star Lord). And if Mr. Swierczynski can keep things going the way that he has over the last 5 issues for the next year then allow me to assure you that it will be in the running for my favorite book of 2009!
