The Queue

Savagely disappointed by the lackluster Iron Fist television series on Netflix, I decided to revisit the glory days of the Immortal Iron Fist comic book. Rather than climb up into my mom & dad's attic to dig through my old boxes of comics, I find it more convenient to borrow collections from the library; these collections also contained stories that were never part of my library of individual issues. Immortal Weapons is a collection of one-shots based on characters, the eponymous Immortal Weapons of the Seven Capital Cities of Heaven, introduced in The Immortal Iron Fist.

A number of spiritual books have recently been added to the queue, reflected in a fifty-per-cent expansion of what had been the shrinking list of the "Presently."
