    Unfortunately, legend Jim Lee did not return for the art on this issue. Hopefully that changes by the next, but Ryan Benjamin did a great job of channeling his style. It may not feature as much detail as Lee puts into his careful lines, but the action is just as exciting. He takes advantage of the colorful characters Tynion gives him to help makeThe Immortal Men #2even better than the previous issue. With how great it's going so far, hopefully Caden Park's journey is just getting started. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 9, 2018

    So far my biggest gripe with the book is the uninspired code names. Reload, Hunt and Kill are more verbs than aliases. If that remains the biggest issue, Immortal Men will be just fine. Read Full Review

    Its not always easy to come up with a good second issue. I am very glad that this book succeeded at the challenge. Read Full Review

    So far its still quite young, as much as I am personally compelled it does not have the clout just yet to be great. However its making the steps need to be such. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 10, 2018

    The Immortal Men #2 took big steps forward in addressing what both sides are fighting for. There's still a lot for them to explain about this secret war, but for now every bit makes a difference. The character development as well makes a big difference where now we can decide what our investment in what more this story has to offer. So far the balance is okay between character, plot, and action. Read Full Review

    The second issue sets a crazy pace as we're introduced to more of this world and characters. There's a lot packed in here and though the first two issues feel decompressed, they are also entertaining in what's presented. Read Full Review

    Immortal Men probably won't be the strongest DC team-up book you could check out this week, but it's still unique enough to stay with. Read Full Review

    Mysteries are revealed, and the art is quite good. If only we didn't have that cover (and maybe more of Timber!) Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, so far, Immortal Men is a spectacle but it doesn't feel like much of a story yet. Read Full Review

    Whether The Immortal Men will be timeless is up for debate, but there is a lot of work still to go before these characters resonate with readers. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alan Buxbaum May 14, 2018

    Although this series has a lot of potential, its being dragged down by lack of flow and direction in this issue. Hopefully the series will capitalize on its strengths in the future so it can turn into a mainstay of DC Comics. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman May 9, 2018

    Packed with interesting characters and not much else, The Immortal Men is shaping up to be another New Age of Heroes miss; there's still time, but it's not looking good. Also, where's Jim Lee? Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Garrett Hanneken May 9, 2018

    The Immortal Men #2 enriches the team members but sacrifices the attention given to the main protagonist. There is still more to be done to flesh out this team and the stakes at risk, and I still have hope that this comic will do just that in the future. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 9, 2018

    Immortal Men continues to limp out of the New Age of DC Heroes gate and hasn't done much to get readers attention after two issues. New characters are introduced before current characters are even developed in the least, especially Caden, which for the books focus so far is unforgivable.  These first two issues can be boiled down to 40 pages of Caden running from things so far. If you're in the mood for a slow burn, with new characters in the DC U, this might possibly be up your ally, but so far to me, I haven't seen enough to recommend it's worth jumping into at all just yet.

    An okay issue with clear details on superpowers, but not enough done to make you care much at all about who these characters are. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck May 11, 2018

    A book about immortal characters should be so much more than this. An examination of how history affects the modern world! The sights they've seen! The people they've met! Instead, it's just lots of explosions and car crashes. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Seth Singleton May 10, 2018

    Learning about the House of Action through Infinite Woman was a nice storytelling device, though it was not enough to overcomethe limits that were intentionally placed on the development of characters like the Immortal Man.I need more reasons to care about Caden, other than to feel he is the vehicle that gets me to the Immortal Man. The series can get there and I hope it will. Read Full Review
