Marvel Entertainment announced Thursday it will launch a new Iron Fist comic book series written by Ed Brisson with art from Mike Perkins, and will feature covers by Jeff Dekal in March.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will pick up from events in the 2014-2015 Iron Fist: The Living Weapon series and sees Danny travel the world to find new meaning after the near-destruction of K’un Lun, the mythical city where he first got his powers — only to discover a mysterious island whose inhabitants seem to know all about the history of the Iron Fist, and those who’ve used it in the past.
“I tend to have a habit of putting them through the wringer. As for where K’un-Lun is and how that affects Danny… That’s going to be a large part of what this first arc is about. K’un-Lun is the source of his powers and now that the city lays in ruins, Danny’s connection is severed. This affects his ability to actually be Iron Fist. His whole identity seems to be slipping away from him and he doesn’t know how to hold onto it,” said Brisson to Graeme McMillan of Heat Vision.
Perkins shared a sneak peek of his work on his Facebook wall.
