I thought it'd be interesting to see which one you guys thought was better. Both titles came out in November and since then have been great. Immortal Iron Fist is off to a great start, with all first three issues selling out. Punisher: War Journal is doing great as well with the Punisher returning to the MU.

For me it'd have to be Immortal Iron Fist. I like Punisher and all but personally like the MAX version better. Immortal Iron Fist has been just a fantastic read. Brubaker and Fraction are doing a great job writing Iron Fist and the way they are doing the story is awesome. I love the whole legacy idea. The titled is fueled with martial arts action and added to the book is amazing art by David Aja. With great writing, art, action and storytelling, Immortal Iron Fist gets my vote.

Which one do you choose?

I love both, but War Journal is much more unique IMO. Iron Fist is like a second Daredevil comic (which I don't mind at all, DD is the best comic on the stands)

I will almost always go for the funnier book, so it's Punisher. But I really like Iron Fist.

Punisher for me, too, specially now that the CW tie-ins are over.

4 for Iron Fist and 3 for War Journal.

Keep up your thoughts guys. :D

I have to go with Iron Fist. I may be to used to the Puniser MAx series which is awesome so the War Journal seems to hokey/jokey for me.

Yeah, I don't really like the art on War Journal that much. The first issues of War Journal were ok though...the fourth one seemed to pick up a bit.

Iron Fist. I've already lost interest in War Journal, whereas Iron Fist is one of the first books I read.

That was a completely different artist......

A much less enjoyable artist to my eye, frankly. Not a Deodato fan... not sure why so many people seem to dislike Olivetti, either...

Yeah, I might drop War Journal after #5. I gave it a chance, but just don't have that much interest in it. Maybe though, maybe...

I know, and I thought it was much better than Ariel's art work.

Iron Fist. Both are great but it came out to the art and I like Aja over Olivetti. I just don't like the gigantic arms that he draws on the Punisher.

War Journal all the way.

I like Iron Fist a LOT, but Fraction is writing the Punisher book I've been waiting for my whole life without ever even knowing it.

I agree.
I have yet to read Iron Fist, but I didn't really enjoy War Journal. I prefer the MAX version.

Exactly my point.

I highly recommend Immortal Iron Fist. It's one of the best books Marvel has out right now.

I've always liked Iron Fist, and always disliked Punisher. I continue to feel that way.

I don't consider War Journal to be the "real" Punisher.

Fair enough.

Yeah, I think Ennis writes him best.

i'm far more intrested in Iron Fist than i am with Punisher, thanks to Bendis/Brubaker for having him in Daredevil


but i do enjoy reading Punisher and i do enjoy both book, you have to had it to Fraction for bringing the funny in his book cause i highly doubt thats an easy thing to do with Punisher

I agree. I think what Brubaker and Fraction are doing with Iron Fist is awesome. And Bendis having Iron Fist on the New Avengers is cool to.

Yes that's true. But I just prefer the MAX series way more. Punisher is a maniac killer, and it's best shown in the MAX series.

I buy them both and I enjoy them both, but if I had to pick one it would be Iron Fist. Mainly because of the art on it. The writing on both books is supurb but I like Aja's art more than I do Oliverti's (sp).

I tried Punisher. Didn't care for it. I prefer the more down to Earth version of the character. And I totally hate that he was anti-registration during Civil War, and this is an extension of that stupid idea.

Iron Fist is currently one of two Marvel U books in my pull list. I'm enjoying it.

Yeah, Fraction's writing is ok. I don't know though, after reading #5 I'm still undecided what I want to do with War Journal.

The new suit for Iron Fist was introduced in #3 and will ofcourse be seen in #4 just like the preview shows. So yeah, it's a great new suit for him.
