Solid issue. Great cover. Good PrevPage(for quantity). Preferred the main art to the prelude art. But the proto-Jae-Lee style was too trying in spots. The layout/pacing was enjoyably energetic but a tad too scratchy.

KWAI JUN-FAN:
Not clear if Ch'i-Lin is the name of the evil Master or this Servant that kills him. Still, it was a good set up to illustrate the trouble IF will face. A tad long, added to last issues sequence for the limited canon it provides.

DANIEL RAND:
-Really deserved his own name/time label like JUN and ORSON got.
-The tilted head butt seemed physically impossible or as hardly as dangerous as Danny's "OHHHH..." reaction implied.
-Danny's irreverant humor was great.
-Odd way to incorporate two 'teats' into the dialogue.
-Unfairly unclear of how many generations of Immortal Weapons this freaky monster has faced. Why study Danny's dad who was NOT an IF?
-Bronx Sucker Punch was a great moment added to the stylish martial moves.
-Not sure why his friends wouldnt include the Immortal Weapons Now but now matter 'cuz the Heroes For Hire are back, baby! \:D
-Liked their fight sequence and the 'heart' joke.
-What is this T-shirt logo?: http://www.comicboards.com/app/image.php?msg=mub-2008083012510033&att=iif18logo.JPG&fullsize=yes
-Like the dragon border emblems but dislike their space hogging and wanting twotone contrast.
-Davos had a good interlude infodump but that did NOT look like Thunderer. Did he dump his traditional garb 'cuz he took up leadership??
-Misty is sexy here. Wing gets little face time and no 'juicy' dialogue(again).
-Patrick or Nadine is the spy is a safe bet.
-The answer-to-everything-Book should be destroyed before its too mishandled by writers like the Orb of Agamotto has become.

ORSON RANDALL:
He's okay and was entertaining in his first arc but dont see the appeal he has that warrants a second special, let alone the first one. Drugs to SAVE his life is an odd storyline but will wait to see where that goes.
