    Immortal #15 tells the story of Bei Bang-Wen, an Iron Fist on a quest for redemption, and the people he meets along the way. It’s a one-and-done issue and it’s quite good in terms of the script. The execution damages it somewhat. Like issue #7, because of the type of story, it’s mostly in dialogue boxes with very few interjections from the characters themselves. Often, this makes for somewhat bland character development. You’re being told everything rather than shown. Also, by nature of this being a one-shot story, the characters sort of come off as one-dimensional. On the surface the overall tale is fine, but as we race through their lives in a short span of time I don’t really get a sense of who they are.

    Khari Evans’s art isn’t usually to my tastes, but it works well here. There’s some very good color work from Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic and Paul Mounts to help it out as well. Towards the end when things get more mystical and left-field the art begins to go off the rails a bit, but for the most part Evans tells the story decently enough.

    Still, not up to the book’s usual standards. Most will probably be thankful for the breather after the “Capital Cities” arc that dominated Immortal’s world for over a year, but this one probably isn’t necessary reading material.
