SDCC ’17: Marvel And ComiXology’s First In Line Of Original Comics Will Be The Immortal Iron Fists
by Hannah Means Shannon
The Immortal Iron Fists was one of the series announced by Marvel at SDCC ’17, but what makes the project unique is that it’s the first time that Marvel and comiXology have worked together to produce an original, digital comic series. And it will be the first in an entire line of collaborations.
Available free to comiXology Unlimited subscribers and only available through comiXology and Kindle, these comics will be part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content.
Marvel and comiXology’s team-up kicks off with Immortal Iron Fists, which will be a 6-issue bi-weekly series written by Kaare Andrews with art by Afu Chan. Immortal Iron Fists is on sale today for $2.99 on comiXology and Kindle or free to comiXology Unlimited subscribers as part of their subscription. New users to comiXology’s subscription service can also access Immortal Iron Fists for free as part of their 30-day free trial. Additional exclusive series will be announced soon, ComiXology says.
Immortal Iron Fists tells the tale of Pei, a young female monk from K’un-Lun and the youngest person to ever bear the mark of the Iron Fist. While Pei tackles the trials of high school, Danny Rand, the Immortal Iron Fist, faces his greatest challenge yet: training the inexperienced Pei. All the while, a growing threat appears that will take more than one pair of Iron Fists to defeat.
Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications says:
Immortal Iron Fists serves as a perfect starting point for those new readers who are just discovering the world of Marvel Comics. We’re loving working with Marvel on this line of exclusive content as part of our comiXology Originals program. Giving new and current fans the option to buy or read for free as part of our comiXology Unlimited subscription service is a huge win. We can’t wait to hear from the fans.
