Cancelled?

Has the Immortal Iron Fist been cancelled or what? I'm confused... 
 
I swear we thought it was, ages ago, then it turned out it wasn't... But the Prince of Orphans (dude... JUST realized that could be shortened to PoO... XD) issue was released AGES ago, and still no Iron Fist at my comic store... 
 
Is Immortal Iron Fist done?

@-Eclipse-: It's been done for quite some time buddy, they finished it and moved on to the Immortal Weapons mini which is almost already finished.

The Immortal Weapons is finished but I thought Immortal Iron Fist or at least something with Danny was supposed to start up once it was over.

What was originally said was that Iron Fist was on break while the Immortal Weapons mini took over for a while. 
 
The mini is now over and Iron Fist has not returned. 
 
Well, if it's officially cancelled, I suppose it's a blessing in that I don't have to put up with the crappy art anymore. But I shall forever hate Travel Foreman for ruining my favourite series.

He showed many times he had the potential to draw a good picture. But clearly he was either lazy or lacking time, and the majority of the comic (basically, everything after the first page of the first issue of a new story arc) was a piece of messy-looking crap. 
 
I just don't understand how Marvel decided that Foreman would be a good replacement for Aja. 
 
Can you spot the difference here?

 


 


 


 


 
The difference is, one of the artists makes me oggle at the picture for five minutes, while the other makes me look away as soon as possible. And try to scratch my eyes out. Guess which is which :P
 
Those two of the only Foreman pics I could find on the Vine. And they're not his worst examples either.

I prefer the first two pictures. 
 
I read that the book was on hiatus, so, it hasn't been cancelled but no new issues are being released for the time being.

I liked most of the art in Immortal Iron Fist. They kept a certain mood when it came to the book and I liked most of the art all the way through, even the guest artists on the stories that involved the past Iron Fists.

I'm ignoring that.

I assumed the hiatus would last until the Immortal Weapons mini was over... Clearly I was wrong, but I'm just curious whether it IS still merely on hiatus or whether the series has been quietly cancelled. I do remember reading that Joe Q was not a fan of the book somewhere...

If you are referring to the first two arcs, I definitely agree with you. Aja was a great main artist, and while the guests artists weren't quite on his level, their input on the past Iron Fist flashbacks was great. When Swiercheezini (however you spell it) and Foreman took over, however... My opinion of Travel Foreman is that he worked fine when he was doing the occasional page or two splashed between Aja's work. But he simply can't carry the book on his own. The 'last' issue of Immortal Iron Fist was one of my least favourite issues ever, almost entirely due to Foreman's art. 
  
A big issue for me was his fight scenes. He just didn't make them as exciting as Aja did with his, not to mention that with Frubaker no longer writing, we don't have many of those little captions for every attack.

@Eclipse
 
I completely agree with you. The first two arcs, in terms of story and artwork, were really good. the last two were sloppy, undeveloped and kind of felt rushed. The Mortal Iron Fist arc was a cool concept, but I felt they didn't develop the ideas enough. The last arc was a big let down to me. The end was anticlimactic. I really didn't like the idea of the 8th city being a prison. 
 
Very disappointed if this series doesn't come back in one way or another. I would be interested to see what new powers or techniques Iron Fist learned from the book.
