Good old Orson Randall. It's a shame we only got to see him in the current Marvel Universe for so short a time. I do like how we are getting glimpses into the past of the man that knows "gun-fu." It is a little weird that he was out running around having all these adventures but it doesn't seem like people really knew there was an Iron Fist out there before Danny. Oh well. I'm going to enjoy this regardless. To top things off, there's a credit for Mike Allred! Sure it'll probably just be a pin-up or something since he's not mentioned in the bit below but I'll take any little bit I can get.
Experience the kung-fu powered action thrill ride that Entertainment Weekly, WWE Magazine, Aint-It-Cool-News, IGN and more can’t stop raving about in The Immortal Iron Fist: Orson Randall and The Green Mist Of Death! Red-hot scribe Matt Fraction teams with the all-star art team of Mitch Breitweiser, Chris Brunner, Russ Heath and Lewis Larosa, not to mention beloved cover artist Kaare Andrews! Featuring the Golden Age Iron Fist (Orson Randall) against the deadly Prince of Orphans, this is the battle that’s echoed through the ages—and will affect the current Iron Fist, Danny Rand!
In the action-packed Immortal Iron Fist Annual #1, Danny Rand and readers alike discovered the truth behind the Rand fortune—so just what kind of explosive secrets will be revealed this time? One thing’s for sure—you can bet your kicked butt that it’ll reverberate through the pages of Immortal Iron Fist and impact the deadly kung-fu tournament currently unfolding!
“It's a cul-de-sac off of the main book in the truest sense-- there's a surprising reveal at the end of Immortal Iron Fist #12 and this special fills in how that came to be,” Fraction teased. “Best of all, we get to tip our hats to the life and legacy of Mr. Bill Everett, to whom we are in tremendous debt.”
Combine the red-hot Fraction with a bevy of the industry’s best artists, add in a cup of suspense and a pinch of everything that is awesome about life, and you’ve got the extra-sized The Immortal Iron Fist: Orson Randall and The Green Mist Of Death. Suit up, assume the stance and get ready for the battle of your life as more secrets of Orson Randall’s past are unveiled!
