What could be called Preview Week here at CBR continues today with previews of three new series from Marvel Comics! Check out these previews and then head on over to the CBR Marvel Comics Forums to discuss these new series with your fellow fans.


THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST #1 (SEP062117)

Written by ED BRUBAKER AND MATT FRACTION

Pencils and Cover by DAVID AJA, TRAVEL FOREMAN, and DEREK FRIDOLFS

Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun' Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass -- the garb of "the Immortal Iron Fist" -- and knew that he was destined to wear it. But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future?

The answer to those questions will stun both him and his readers, as Danny Rand leaps from the pages of his breakout hit in DAREDEVIL to his own series - a history-spanning kung-fu epic that will shatter every perception of what it means to be the Immortal Iron Fist! Brought to you by top-ten writer Ed Brubaker and breakout talent Matt Fraction (Punisher War Journal), with action-packed art by David Aja (Daredevil, Giant-Size Wolverine).

A searing vision of Spider-Man's future, brought to you by superstar Kaare Andrews (INCREDIBLE HULK).

They finally did it. Kicked them to the curb. The "capes and tights" crowd -- there's no place for them in the Big Apple anymore. Peter Parker? He can't even remember what it was like to don the red and blue and swing through the night sky. Doesn't want to, anyway. After all, there's nothing left to fight for, is there? That is until an old "friend" appears on Peter's doorstep, bearing a package and a message -- and everything changes. If it's not Peter's responsibility, then whose is it?
