Immortal Iron Fist

Immortal Iron Fist #reflection

Immortal Iron Fist I’ve been reading The Immortal Iron Fist (Marvel Comics, digital release between 2012 and 2013) collection over the past few months. I read it in its five-volume run that covered close to 30 comics. To start off, when I think of Kung Fu epics and a warrior …

Bloody Doors Off

The Bloody Doors Off #reflection

The Bloody Doors Off So, to start off, I am at a point where I am doing a bit of change up. If you hadn’t noticed, I didn’t post this on Sunday like I have been doing for a while now. Basically, I have been thinking about it for a …

Punch with the Iron Fist

Punch with the Iron Fist Here I am, thinking of how I want to go into this, and I realize I am a bit remiss. See, I didn’t talk about the last in the series (this will change). But I talked about the others. But as I move into this …

death and rising stars

Death and Rising Stars

Death and Rising Stars It has been a strange week. We already know about the trip and the phone that almost blew up, but that isn’t even the craziest thing to happen recently. I won’t be going into full details about this but I am going to give a bit …

Assault on our Sensibilities

Assault on our Sensibilities

Assault on our Sensibilities Comic book worlds are tied together through their different universes. At least that is how it used to be. Except when it comes to the big and small screen. Translating all of comic imagery and ideas into live action works seems to be just as difficult …
