5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly entertaining masterworks volume July 13 2011
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The logical title to be the first of the martial arts masterworks would have been the longest running and by most accounts the best, Master of Kung-Fu. However, that title has licensing issues because of the use of trademarked characters like Fu Manchu. As a result we must make do with Iron Fist introduced in Marvel Premiere 15. This book is a middling 244 pages which seems a little short for 13 issues (Marvel Premiere 15-25, Iron Fist 1-2) but is a reflection of the low page count of 1974-1975.

The first part of the book (MP 15-22) is the origin arc which is very fast paced and features a bevy of writers and artists. This is usually a recipe for mediocrity but surprisingly the arc holds up very well, as good as the second part, in my opinion. The second part is written by the celebrated Chris Claremont of X-Men fame and is slower paced and more intricately plotted. The last three issues features art by Claremont's X-Men collaborator, John Byrne. The arc has not played out by the end of the book but is very well done.

There are no extras besides the standard creator biographies.

Curiously, Marvel's showcase title, Marvel Premiere has now been masterworked through issue 25 in various Warlock, Dr. Strange, and Iron Fist books.

In short, highly recommended despite the creator merry-go-round in the first half.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow July 2 2012

I had never read an Iron Fist comic book before this. I bought it because the character was a in a game and I thought he was cool. I must say, he certainly is. Iron Fist has become one of my favorites now! This is a superb collection, but it leaves you hanging. The story ends on a cliffhanger and now I can't wait to get volume 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron Fist is a great read. July 21 2011
By Comicfan40 - Published on Amazon.com

This Marvel Masterworks piece of Iron Fist is absolutely amazing. Marvel needs to continue to produce lesser known characters in this highly collectible series from the silver age of comics when they were actually fun and simple. I highly recommend this to anyone that is crazy about the kung-fu explosion of the 70's and bruce lee's appearances this will not disappoint.
4.0 out of 5 stars Kung Fu action in the mighty Marvel manner Jan. 27 2014
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
This book reprints the first 13 Iron Fist comic book, in Marvel Premiere and his own title, in a hardcover cover with high quality paper. In 1974, Marvel already had Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu, but he was more or less a traditional martial arts master. Iron Fist, on the other hand, was a superhero who used kung fu. These comics are quite entertaining, despite frequent changes in the creative team. In 13 issues, there were five different writers and five different pencilers. But the definitive Iron Fist creative team was writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne, who worked on the last three issues here and went on to do the rest of the Iron Fist comics until it was canceled. Claremont and Byrne later went on to become what many people consider to be the definitive X-Men creative team.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun kung fu memories Dec 22 2013
By Rich M. - Published on Amazon.com
This was another semi-accidental purchase on eBay, but I'm glad I got it. Iron Fist was my first real exposure to kung fu as a genre, though I missed getting a mess of the issues in this collection just because newsstand distribution in a small town stinks.

Great artwork by Gil Kane, Pat Broderick and Larry Hama, and the first collaboration by Chris Claremont and John Byrne - the probable reason why this was reprinted - makes it worth the price (at least an eBay price; I wouldn't pay fill price for ANY of the Masterworks or Archives hardcovers today). Good, solid seventies storytelling.
