Immortal Iron Fist #6 was like a worthwhile award winning movie that played in my brain! The art and story was like concession stand candy for a sweet tooth! The whole production was gets the HIGHEST rating with 5 stars (not mention Danny,Orson,Luke,Misty,& Colleen)!

Perfect cover. Presentation of the 'new' and 'instory' Iron FIst. Silhouettes of the major players. Background of the great city backdrop. A logo I've liked since getting into the series. And no extra charge for the awesome story. That's 5 more stars.

Not to mention the names in the corner that shine. Yep, 5 stars.

Usually passover Previously but last issue had confusing elements with some of the 'origin' revelations. It cleared up FIVE tidbits of information... uhm... okay, the 'FIVE' part was just a guessitmate to keep the review theme going but, really, this page was very helpful.

The things I liked: (trying to be SPOILER-lite but there's a LOT more than 5)

Nepal prelude. L.P. intro(?). Chalice choosing. Xu-man & Me-Lao. White Boy Wendell. Shake your hand.

The title page, oh shoot!, the title page. Aja,Heath,&Hollignsworth had drawing gunplay down to an art(no pun intended, well kinda...) all issue! Beautifu. Ditto Brubaker&Fraction with Danny's narration squares!

The believable against-all-odds numbers.

Jeryn (though Danny's devotion seems a tiny bit too kind). Colleen's red hair (please dye the blond back in H4H!)! Luke's Sweet #%&%$!! Christmas (and he put a little bling back on). Aww, yeah, Misty too! Plust the sound effects mixed in.

"Say 'Hail HYDRA' one more mother --" \:\)

Luke givin' orders. And the "Y'all should get gay-married" line and comeback.

Bionics and blades in action.

Using the Iron Fist so freakin' timely and effectively!

In the blink of an eye.

DING right on cue!

Bloody elevator ride. Bloody heroes for hire, baby, Bloody hell to pay.

Poignant moment. (Appreciate the 'Don't be an idiot' humour to mask the pain moment but kicking myself 'cuz it seems like it might be a homage/parody of a 'Are you my Grandfather' movie moment ottomh can't think of)

The cover moment come to life. Daaaamn!

Flashback and fond last look at Orson as he tries to teach a lesson that readers know to be history to Danny's father who's not listening. Will Danny be the same...

That tiny panel of the 5th floor(just a made up theme #) illuminating after the small, simple silouetted sidekicks, was a bigger than the whole page in my brain. The 5 star movie climax!

The comic book cliche exit.

Counting on freinds to prevent a cold blooded killing. And other freinds to respect a big decision.

The upcoming tournament.

The next issue cover.

To summarize, I give this comic 5 stars!
