Some thoughts about Iron Fist #2
Danny has been asked to participate in a secret tournament where the winner can become stronger but this might be more difficult he anticipated.
Well, at least improved a few aspects from the first issue.
Ed Brisson brings a new chapter where he continues the story of a secret organization that wants to provide Danny of a new challenge. This nicely follows the premise the author was going for and includes some interesting aspects of worlbuilding by introducing the multiple houses that Danny will have to face which is similar to Matt Fraction and Ed Brubaker's Immortal Iron Fist run so is appropriate at least.
Plus, this fixes the lack of content from the last issue by including more plot-points and overall story in the chapter while presenting solid fight scenes.
Mike Perkins' artwork is really good with a lot of detail for the characters and battles.
Solid overall, is probably not that creative since is reusing old themes but at least is interesting so far.
