Power-Man and Iron-fist #1 (Marvel)

Well it all starts with the cover...It does not sing a sweet tune!
The artwork is O.k. in parts but is a very tired in others.. That's until i saw Tombstone drawn like he had bloated fish lips (don't mess with one of my favorite villains Marvel).

The story isn't much better i'm afraid, Has the boys sorta training, Sorta talking to friends, Sorta getting back together & sorta walking around...Zzzzz... What.. Ahem. Sorry i fell asleep there.
They meet & greet Tombstone where a fight ensues & Luke Cage one punches Tombstone out of the building. They find a gem that was stolen & yeah!

Sorry this was a huge missed opportunity from the Marvel crew, It could have been a hell of a lot better. The colours are terrible, It looks & reads like it's been done on the cheap. The heading on the cover is stiff & has no character, If your a fan then go for it. It may get better i hope, I don't think i'll be getting anymore soon.

Rating 6.5/10


  1. What a shame.

    I was excited for this - and it is already ordered.

  2. You may find it better then i did Tex! Good luck with it.

  3. I got it in and read it.

    Good part - I loved the relationship between Danny and Luke. The story brought it back down to the street-level and the art was quirky. I like that. The bad part - it just wan't an engrossing enough story arc to kick off a book. Not in the slightest. I would have preferred a mystery. For example, D.W., Luke's old friend is murdered (or maybe his wife is), and Luke and Danny start the case solo, and end up back together on the last few pages. you know, a getting-the-band-back-together type of deal.
