After the harrowing conclusion to "The Last Iron Fist Story," Danny Rand (the man known as Iron Fist) has lost a friend and a mentor-but the worst is yet to come! In Immortal Iron Fist #8, a brand-new story arc begins as the titular hero must enter in the combat tournament to end all tournaments! The Seven Capital Cities of Heaven align for the first time in a generation and with it come new threats for the last Iron Fist. As Danny studies the Book Of The Iron Fist, the forces of Hydra manipulate the kidnapped Jeryn to their ends and…the truth about Wendell Rand? Red-hot scribe Matt Fraction and Eisner Award-winning Ed Brubaker join acclaimed artist David Aja for the kung fu epic of the year! How can Iron Fist possibly defeat six other immortal weapons?

Congratulations are in order for the Iron Fist creative team, as critics continue to rave about the series, with Entertainment Weekly awarding the series an "A-" and gushing, "The Brubaker-Fraction brain trust drums up a skillful script that jauntily grants a peripheral Marvel character some hard-earned days of glory."

"This series has been incredibly satisfying," said Matthew Peterson of MajorSpoilers.Com. "Freakin awesome."

Humphrey Lee of Aint-it-Cool-News exclaimed, "Dave Aja draws the #$%@ outta this book."
