"I Fart Mystical Powers"

Recently Marvel comics relaunched the series Power Man and Iron Fist by writer David Walker and artist Sanford Greene bringing together again Luke Cage and Danny Rand.For those of you who never read the original series and might only know of Luke Cage from his appearance on the Netflix series Jessie Jones I'll give a quick break down of their story.Luke Cage was wrongfully imprisoned and was experimented on the experiment ended up giving him super strength and his body virtually invulnerable.Luke used his powers to break out of prison and clear his name and went on to become the superhero know as Power Man. Danny Rand was a orphan who ended up in the far away mysterious city of K'un Lun where he learned their mystical martial arts and as his name implies he can channel his " Chi" to make his hands a powerful weapons. Years later he moved back to America and discovered his farther was owner of Rand Corporation that he took over but still rather spend his time being the hero Iron Fist.The two became partners known as Heroes for Hire until eventually going separate ways.
David Walker and Sanford Greene have reunited the duo in the new series  if you like movies like Lethal Weapon,48 hrs,etc you'll like this book .The dynamic between the two is fun,Danny is all too excited to team up with his old partner while Luke is very reluctant now that he's a husband and farther,spoilers for those of you who watch Jessica  Jones. Walker's writing style is funny and realistic and full of great lines like Iron Fist's "I fart mystical powers" or Power Man's "Fiddle Faddle". Green's art is unlike any I've seen and I've been reading comics since the 70's...yeah yeah you do the math. Unlike some artist he doesn't have a "cookie cutter" way of drawing body's each character has their own shape and face which is refreshing.I highly recommend this series which is only on issue 2 and from what I've heared from a interview Walker and Greene did on a podcast there's something big about to happen in the Marvel Universe  and it involves Power Man and Iron Fist so jump onboard now while it's still early.
Until Next Time my friends stay geeky and hungry
