Travis Parham was a soldier, injured while serving his country, but now, a family of former slaves is caring for him. After recuperating in their home, Parham goes west, finds himself a plot of land, and settles down. But when Parham returns to visit the family, he finds them murdered.

Determined to get revenge, he hunts down the men responsible, one by one, but it seems he is always too late. Someone or something is cutting down the murderers before Parham can reach them. Who is this mysterious spirit of vengeance and what does he seek?

Immortal Iron Fist #2 Sells Out

Everyone agrees…The Immortal Iron Fist is poised to be the breakout hit of 2007! Marvel is happy to announce that Immortal Iron Fist #2 has sold out at Diamond, following in the wake of the premiere issue's sellout. Currently, Marvel has no plans to go back to press on issue #2.

Mike Williams of SilverBulletComicBooks.com says Immortal Iron Fist #2, "continues the quality work most readers have come to expect from Brubaker. His and Matt Fraction's new series definitely is making a case for thinking 2007's going to be the year of Iron Fist."

Kenneth Gallant of BrokenFrontier.com says, "this series will probably be the breakout title in 2007 for Marvel Comics."

Hop onboard Immortal Iron Fist now as Iron Fist is in store for one heck of a 2007 as he becomes an increasingly important player in the Marvel Universe. Not only is there a second printing of issue #1 on stands now, featuring a gorgeous Gabrielle Dell'Otto cover, but Marvel is releasing a Director's Cut of the first issue in the coming weeks going behind the scenes of Iron Fist's return to an ongoing series. The cover for the Director's Cut will be the colors-to-pencils fade of Immortal Iron Fist #1's cover as seen on other Director's Cuts.

Also note, copies of Immortal Iron Fist #2 may still be available at the retailer level.
