David Walker and Sanford Greene Deliver Friendship and Fist Fights in ‘Power Man and Iron Fist’ #1
Sanford Greene's art is just uncommonly charming, right? That was my first thought when the earliest images were released from the upcoming Power Man and Iron Fist, and seeing this preview has only strengthened that opinion. The new ongoing series, featuring Greene and writer David Walker, will be in stores on February 17th.
I love seeing Luke and Danny having a friendly moment on one of the preview pages, complete with a flashback to what they looked like in the 70s. And I love seeing them vastly outnumbered, fighting a whole crowd of guys who, let's be clear, don't stand a chance. I also love their new looks — tracksuit-striped Iron Fist and dapper dad Power Man.
Honestly, the only thing I don't love in this preview is the brief appearance of Jessica Jones, who's home taking care of little Danielle. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Jessica and Luke's relationship, but at the same time I can't stand that this always seems to be the only role Marvel has for her, even now that she's a TV star.
Nevertheless, this comic looks like a whole lot of fun, which is pretty much always what I'm looking for from Marvel. Hopefully when Marvel gives Jessica Jones a solo comic again, it will be just as appealing.
Here's word from Marvel:
