Iron Fist #1 - John Byrne art


Iron Fist v1 #1, 1975 - Graduating from Marvel Premiere #25, Iron Fist premieres in his own self-titled series. John Byrne's second attempt at the character falls disappointingly short. His inexperience shows in the lack of dynamism and draftsmanship. Still, Byrne shows glimpses of artistic potential that would eventually turn Iron Fist into one of his signature characters. Iron Man guest stars in a not-so-subtle attempt to attract more readers, leading to an eventual battle between the two heroes. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane (cover). This is number 1 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.
