Iron Fist, Nicolas Cage, and Killing Mary Jane: The Kaare Andrews Interview I have always had a fondness for Iron Fist, as he was one of my brother's favorite superheroes when we were growing up. I was somewhat excited when Marvel Comics announced that an Iron Fist monthly would be part of their new Marvel NOW! revamp or relaunch or whatever you want to call it, but not nearly as excited as I was that one of my favorite artists, Kaare Andrews, would be both writing and handling the art chores on the new series.  I have been a fan of Kaare's work since Ultimate X-Men and enjoyed his runs on Astonishing X-Men, Spider-Man: Reign, and anything else he has put his artistic stamp on, like the iconic covers he did for The Incredible Hulk and Amazing Spider-Man. Clearly, Kaare has a great love of comics; he took a brief hiatus to direct the film Cabin Fever: Patient Zero and returned to comics afterward (Praise Baby Jesus!), and it shows in the amazing storytelling in his first issue of Iron Fist: Living Weapon. 

Kaare was kind enough to participate in the following interview.
The All-New Marvel: ‘Amazing X-Men’ The All-New Marvel provides an overview of the new series coming from Marvel Comics’ All-New Marvel NOW! banner and the impact they have on the classic and new characters we love (and those we love to hate). With each installment of The All-New Marvel, we see what our favorite characters are up to and where they are headed in the future.


Though not technically a part of the All-New Marvel NOW! banner, this comic certainly impacts aspects of it, especially when it returns a fan favorite character to production (and life).  The life and death of certain characters come into play when a group of X-Men find themselves in the middle of a family feud that has the potential to disrupt all of reality.  But, with the help of some annoying blue creatures and a pirate on the soul seas, these mutants won’t just end up being uncanny; they’ll become the Amazing X-Men.
