Recent Marvels

Greg McElhatton at Comic Book Resources has some kind words about Swierczynski's IMMORTAL WEAPONS #4:

"I've been increasingly pleased... a thoroughly enjoyable group of one-shots focusing on the other mystical martial artists that Danny Rand hangs out with on occasion.

This month's installment brings Tiger's Beautiful Daughter to the foreground... When the climax hits, it's satisfying; not only because it's a good ending, but because it's a perfectly paced origin story. Everything you need to know about Tiger's Beautiful Daughter is there, and it's easy to look ahead and see where her life is going. It's a pity all origin stories aren't this concise and interesting.

Swierczynski and company are bringing back that same amount of fun that Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction initially infused to the title. With stories like this, I'll keep coming back."

And, by the way, this is the same Swierczynski who recently had an adventure, "smoking some incredibly potent form of crack" while time-traveling. Man, those writers have all the fun...!
