Martial Arts Week: Kung Fu Nomenclature (with the Immortal Iron Fist)|
First post after finally migrating to the new community.
One of the best martial arts book on the market right now is Marvel's Immortal Iron Fist. Heavily inspired by classic Wuxia films and literature, this book has brought back into the mainstream one of my favorite tropes of martial arts fiction: crazy names for combat forms.
14 scans from The Immortal Iron Fist: The Seven Capital Cities of Heaven trade paperback.

Von Eede Interview Extras|
The Trevor Von Eeden interview I conducted is finally out today! It’s in the latest issue of The Comics Journal (#298) and like the cover states, it’s a brutally honest take on Von Eeden’s early years, working at Marvel Comics, the demise of Thriller, his relations with Lynn Varley & Frank Miller, industry politics, racism, lawsuits, and much more. An excerpt can be seen at The Comics Journal website: http://tcj.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1042&Itemid=48
Behind the cut there are a few interview responses that were edited out from the final piece, a slew of artwork that complements the interview, and creator quotes by Mark Waid, David Mazzucchelli, Tony Isabella, and Erik Larsen. Major thanks to Johnny Bacardi aka jbacardi for his help in connecting me with Von Eeden and for his fantastic Thriller website. Check out his side of the story at: http://johnnybacardi.blogspot.com/2009/06/looking-for-thriller-news-and.html

One Perfect Moment: Iron Fist - warning for epic under the cut!|
As soon as I saw that a One Perfect Moment week had been launched, I knew that I had to post this page.
Daniel Thomas Rand-K'ai has (obviously) had a plethora of One Perfect Moments over the years. This should be evident just by reading, oh, any panel with him in it. That's putting aside his extraordinarily cracky backstory with paradise pocket dimensions, mystic warrior poets, aliens, snatching the molten heart of Shou-Lao the undying in order to gain the title of Iron Fist, and all the other things that make him such a perfect distillation of everything that was and can be so good about the House of Ideas.
Thus it's exceedingly hard to pick just One Perfect Moment for obvious reasons; be it a frenzied duomachy or Danny taking on the teeming hordes of HYDRA or Danny flinging himself at a ginormous dragon and felling it with one punch*, it's so difficult to pick.
But there exists an exquisite page from Danny's early days that distills the essence of what it is to be Iron Fist. I read this issue when I was a small girl, and this page is what made me fall in love with Iron Fist as a character, because it blew my mind.
And this page? Is EPIC in both art and writing.
Yes. That is, in fact, Danny Rand delivering a curb stomp in one page to a dude fully powered up in a suit of Iron Man armour with naught but his bare hands.
And that, my friends, is why Danny Rand is the baddest motherfucker in the world.
...Not to mention that that page proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Danny has the finest posterior of any male in the Marvelverse.
Edit: Wait. I have to add one more page, because no One Perfect Moment post featuring Iron Fist is complete without showing Danny wrecking three people's faces with just one kick.
I'm pretty certain that this page was the direct inspiration for Matt Fraction and David Aja's Danny-and-Orson-vs.-HYDRA sequence in Immortal Iron Fist #5.
We just might need to have a Rudy Nebres week here on S_D. His work was both seminal and gorgeous.
* Oh, yes. You'd best believe that I'll also be posting those pages.
** The same issue has the distinction of also containing the very first appearance of Jack of Hearts. Who does Jack fight in his very first canonical appearance? The White Tiger. No, I am not making this up.

Yes, I know it was just Deadpool week, but...|
I feel this is merited.
So for those of you who don't know yet, there's been a Deadpool movie confirmed as a spinoff of Wolverine... check here for more information: Deadpool Movie
In honour of this, I felt it necessary to post a couple of my favourite scans from Cable and Deadpool issue 21, featuring Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Weasel and the deliciously campy B.A.D. girls, contract mercenaries who were hired to steal the same thing that everyone else wants.

Marvel Holiday Special 2005 - Yes, Virginia, There is a SANTRON|
Guys, I really hate the awkward InsaneJournal posting format, and although I can finally insert images I can't control the size, so I'm putting this issue up at my journal. This is a repost basically straight from the archive.
It's a complete story, but there are three stories in the Holiday special, over a hundred pages. They're all pure fluff, and this one is the best.
