Luke “Power Man” Cage and Danny “Iron Fist” Rand used to be one of the Marvel Universe’s great superhero pairings, but it’s been years since they joined forces on a regular basis. Sure, they served as New Avengers together for a while and have teamed up for shorter adventures, but they drifted apart as Luke split time between raising a family and leading a superhero team and Danny dealt with the ghosts of his mystical past. That finally changes with next week’s Power Man & Iron Fist #1, which gets the old gang back together with an exceptional creative team at the helm, launching a bold new era for the former Heroes For Hire.

Writer David Walker’s best works in comics have been his two Shaft miniseries for Dynamite Comics—the second, Shaft: Imitation Of Life, begins this week—and his talent for engaging, character-driven street-level narratives makes him an ideal writer to tackle the Power Man & Iron Fist revival. He’s teaming up with artist Sanford Greene, who did especially remarkable work on last year’s Runaways miniseries, creating a highly expressive cast of characters and rendering environments with textured detail. Greene’s art looks better than ever with Lee Loughridge’s coloring, and Loughridge’s skill is even more impressive considering the multitude of titles he’s working on right now and how distinct each one looks. Luke and Danny are in great hands with this creative team, and this preview of Power Man & Iron Fist #1 shows that they have a firm handle on the look and sound of these superhero besties.
