Issue Review
 
by RikerDonegal: 1st story. - Above-average Iron Fist story. Shakes things up with supernatural element. 7/10

2nd story. - An ugly story brings the series to an ending. Thereís lots of self-important dialogue, but itís just a dumb fight over a woman. Nothing here to care about. Thereís a prologue which doesnít work at all, and jars with the tone of the story. 3/10
 
 
 
 
by malmantile2729: Hard for one of these anthology mags (two strips and three articles in this case) to earn an above average rating, but I believe this one deserves 4 stars. Closer to four than three, anyway.

Start with the beautiful and powerful cover, Iron Fist's bare knuckles in your face! Never heard of Bob Larkin before seeing this, but he won me over.

The Sons of the Tiger episode was the stronger of the two comic entries, a very intense issue which sees the trio break up after Abe Brown splits and Bob Diamond picks a vicious fight with Lin Sun. Racial slurs, bloodletting, and finally a meeting of the minds. But no reconciliation, and the story ends with Puerto Rican Hector Ayala finding the discarded amulets, putting them on, and transforming into The White Tiger.

  -"Si! That Perez is Great! But Mantlo's stories! Quien puede entender los?" Indeed!
-Aww man, it's the break-up of The Original Beastie Boys! Oh, well...

  Here's hoping White Tiger is an improvement of Sons.

  That was excellent, I even liked Mantlo and Perez, the only down bit for me was the random chance element to the creation of White Tiger, that seemed lazy.

  I hope this is the end of the Tiger Club Gang.

  Good beginning to a hopefully epic 6 part story. I quite like Iron Fist.

  An interesting start, though like most other first issues of longer story arcs (especially of the black and white variety) there's a whole lot going on that the reader just doesn't understand yet.
