I’ve (half) watched the first 10 episodes of “Iron Fist” and it is true. “Iron Fist” in not was good as the other “Marvel” “Netflix” shows. Keep in mind that’s a HIGH bar to measure up to. “Daredevil”, “Jessica Jones”, and “Luke Cage” were each unique entertainment experiences. “Iron Fist” is not quite that.

What it is, is above average. I would say “Lucifer” is an average show. If they took it off I wouldn’t care but it’s enjoyable. It’s a procederal with some gimmicks that keep it interesting. “Iron Fist” is better than that.

So what are the problems?

  • There’s a lot of “been there done that” in the first few episodes. “Batman Begins”, “Arrow”, “Dr. Strange”, and even “Legion” had covered this territory
  • There’s not a lot to “Danny Rand” as a character.
  • “Danny” does something kinda messed up which I’ll get into tomorrow
  • The best characters on the show are characters we already met
  • The action isn’t great. It’s not terrible, but especially after “Daredevil” you expect more
  • “Iron Fist” seemed to have to do the “heavy lifting” as far as setting up “The Defenders” show. Bottom line, it’s not great but it’s pretty good. Nowhere near as bad as critics have rated it.

Tomorrow Luscious Trapp replaces Apex and Quickie. Then Hazard Hands tries to figure out one specific criticism about his show. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Happy 50th comic people!  I decided to rename the comic “The History Of Comics With Q-boy” from “Q-boy Shorts” because I think the title was confusing and didn’t really work anymore.  When I originally started this comic I intended to do a long-form Q-boy comic and a short comic that would be posted more often.  I also had a completely different story I wanted to do that really made no sense the more I thought about it.  So I changed that story to the what we have now which is this messed up version of the history of comics.

This specific comic is about the artist Carmine Infantino who among many other things created the Barry Allen version of the Flash (which basically started the Silver Age of Comics); and the Barbara Gordon version of Batgirl.  He didn’t create Spider-Woman but he did draw some issues of the comic. He also drew many Adam Strange comic which is where all the jet pack stuff comes from.  Now let’s break down the panels…

All that and I barely got Q-boy in here. That’s it for this one. Next time on “The History Of Comics With Q-boy” we meet the White Swallow, and I have a feeling we’ll meet her even sooner though.  Tuesday-Thursday check out “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations”.  Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
