Iron Fist #5 - John Byrne art

Iron Fist v1 #5, 1976 - Searching for Colleen Wing in London, Iron Fist must contend with a master swordsman calling himself Scimitar. John Byrne employs small, sequential panels to showcase the hero's martial arts moves. Though a bit overdone, it seems more appropriate than other Marvel super-hero titles. The story's highlight is the opening splash (see interior page below), depicting Iron Fist moving stealthily along the rooftops. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane (cover). This is number 5 of 15 Iron Fist issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Iron Fist issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
