Marvel Comics has released a preview of Iron Fist: The Living Weapon #1, from Kaare Andrews.
A call from Danny Rand’s homeland of K’un Lun forces Iron Fist to revisit his dark origin, steeped in blood, vengeance and betrayal.
“Danny is going to be put through the wringer like never before,” says Kaare Andrews in an interview with Marvel.com. “I love to punish my characters. To make them bleed. Watch them struggle against impossible odds, and see if they can find the strength inside themselves to survive—the truth that will be the biggest hurdle of them all. He's been hiding from it for too long. He doesn't have to uncover it, so much as survive it. The truth will be coming for him like a freight train. And there will be a reckoning.”
“It’s pretty incredible to have such a singular vision on a comic, but what’s even more astounding is how much Kaare’s pushing himself at every turn,” says Editor Jake Thomas. “He’s experimenting with color, taking risks with his writing, investing the layout of every page with meaning. This is an artist firing on all cylinders, then building strange, radical cylinders on top of those cylinders. Kaare is the genuine article, if you cut him he’d bleed comics, and IRON FIST is him bleeding all over the page.”
“It is beautiful visual storytelling, personal and compelling, and I cannot wait till readers get a chance to see it for themselves.”
Danny Rand, Iron Fist, fights for his survival when Iron Fist: The Immortal Weapon #1 ships this April.
