Marvel continues to invigorate the creative landscape with writer David Walker and artist Sanford Greene

Luke Cage and Danny Rand – heroes for hire – return to Marvel Comics next year with an all-new on-going series, POWER MAN AND IRON FIST lead by writer David Walker (Shaft) and Sanford Greene (Runaways, Uncanny Avengers).

Luke Cage and Danny Rand, once a dauntless duo of street-fighting justice, have drifted apart. But when an old friend comes to them in trouble, the boys are back! Can the former besties best brutal bad guys, dangerous weapons, and sinister plots all while rekindling Marvel’s mightiest bromance?

“I’ve loved these two characters since before they even teamed up,” exclaims series writer David Walker.  “When Power Man and Iron Fist first teamed up back in the late 1970s, their title quickly became one of my favorite books, and it was always something I fantasized about writing. Seeing them back together is like being reunited with your oldest friends. ”

The passion for this heroic duo has withstood the test of time through the all of Marvel fandom and Marvel is confident in enlisting a creative time that is primed to take Luke Cage and Danny Rand on exciting new adventures. “David and Sanford are both extremely well versed in the background of these characters, the world they’re from, but they’re also bringing their own style to this,” explains series editor Jake Thomas to FastCompany. “Expect some solid, old school Marvel characters—both enemies and allies like, say, Tombstone and Black Mariah—to show up.”

David Walker and Sanford Greene deliver so much fast action and wild adventure it takes two heroes to handle it! If you need help, if you’re lost and alone, if you need a champion, the brawler with unbreakable skin and the kung fu fighter with chi-powered fists are for hire! Just tell your local comic retailer that you want your copy of POWER MAN AND IRON FIST.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
