Comics Out December 17, 2008

I did not pick anything, but do tell me about comics out this week. I am thinking about picking up the post-Fraction Iron Fist at some point -- worth getting?

I dropped Iron Fist have two post-Fraction issues and one special. It just wasn't the same/all that good. However, others, like Tim Callahan, have really enjoyed it. It's not all that different, but I found the subtle changes in tone and language to be the thing that made me dislike the writing.

It's fine. Not as idea-rich, as I found Fraction's to be. And I think that's kind of sad. It's not bad, but it's not great either.

It's good kung-fu 'sploitation fun, with some of the Brubaker/Fraction tropes still being used (but with considerably less grace). It's not in the same league as the first 16 issues, but it's good as its own thing. I find myself drawn to it, each and every month (although I found the noir-ish one-shot from a couple of months ago to be unreadable, so maybe Foreman's art does it for me.)
