Exclusive First Look: IRON FIST THE LIVING WEAPON #3

Who is the villain behind the attack against K'un Lun?

There's a new issue of IRON FIST: THE LIVING WEAPON coming out this week. We really dug the first issue and how it took Danny down a different path. There was plenty of insane over-the-top action and a lot of ninjas as well.

We'll have writer/artist Kaare Andrews on next week's Invincibly Super Massive Comic Book Podcast of Stuff. So if you have any questions for him about the series, feel free to ask away in the comments below. You can wait until you read issue #2 but we'll be recording early Thursday morning.

And for now, here's an exclusive first look at IRON FIST: THE LIVING WEAPON #3.

KAARE ANDREWS (W/A/C)

variant cover by Jerome Opeña

K’UN LUN IN RUINS!

• Ninja nurses versus killers in suits!

• Our villain’s face revealed, and it’s one terribly close to Danny Rand’s heart!

32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

Wow! I don't read Marvel stuff, but this preview has such a Tarantino feel from the Title to the Layouts and colors that I'm starting to feel the urge to buy this series.

Looks incredibly cool!

I cannot wait for issue 2 and this issue. Issue 1 knocked it out of the park as far as I am concerned.

Loved the first issue. Can't wait to read this and the art looks awesome. It's going to be awesome to see one of comics most badass MA get to cut loose.

I thought it was good, nothing special though.

@madeinbangladesh: I thought the art was good and all, but I wasn't really into it. So many, in my opinion, better new series that I'd rather read. New Warriors, Nightcrawler, Daredevil, among others.

I just really want to hug little Iron Fist in that panel with his tears. I learned (the hard way) that once you get tears from someone when sparring, you better run because full on rage is about to be unleashed. Still want to hug him though.

This looks awesome!

In case you missed it, if you have questions for Kaare for next week's podcast, ask away.

Well, I have Two: How is his name correctly pronounced? & Does he get inspired by Tarantino's movies? Because, even though i haven't read this title, from this preview the Tarantino vibe is visible, at least for me.

The art is sick! That is some great art it's own unique art style pretty goofy but also seems classy in a way. Th efirst issue was great issue 2 will probbably be good can't wait for issue 3 of this awesome solo series.

@lcazt1996:

Read what you want dude Marvel has so many awesome solo series coming out basically like 2 new series every month and almost all have been good so far so go with what floats your boat. I thought with only one issue out Iron Fist is easily in my top 5 solo series going on right now along with Magneto,Ms.Marvel,Captain Marvel and of course my favorite solo series Deadpool.

I have 2 questions for Kaare.

1. You probbably can't answer this but any talk of a Luke Cage solo series coming? He's my favorite minority superhero and i would love for him to have a solo series again.

2. Will any other heroes appear in the series? Like the already mentioned Luke Cage, Maybe Jessica Jones?

NICE!

@thewalkingdeadpool18: Oh yeah I'm not saying NOBODY can like this series. Hell, I'm GLAD people seem to be liking this series. It's a non-"mainstream" (as in Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, Cap. America, Thor, Hulk, etc.) series so I'm all for it doing well. :) I was just saying I wasn't that into it. :P

I do have a question, It is as follows.. I personally love your style of art and I just wonder, which artist has inspired you the most?

Hello! My question is how do you approach writing and drawing the series? I can't imagine its stress free but how are you able to coordinate, do you first write the script and then do layouts or vice-versa? I want to write and draw my own story but I really can't draw and don't know how to start.

I'm a Chinese, actually I'm not very interested in KongFu, but the only famous Chinese Kongfu master ShangQi is lame. Iron Fist is pretty cool, though.
