    After the first two issues, the pacing had me thinking this would be better read in a trade format, but Tynion and Benjamin accomplish a lot on their third attempt. I'm interested in seeing where this book is going to go as opposed to patiently waiting to discover a reason to truly get invested in this title. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Travis Tucker Jun 17, 2018

    This issue took the time to provide a bit of background for the heroes we've been following, and even then it feels like its just go go go in the pacing. For a month to month series, I think we need slightly more time to take in such vital informartion. Outside of that this was a great issue, the little bits of background we did get were very nice, and the ones that weren't rushed have me really asking question about what we will see in the coming issue. The illustrations feel extremely reminiscent of WildC.A.T.S. so you old comic buff out there can pick this up along with the newbie and be a part of this new age of heroes. Read Full Review

    A good, solid, dependable third issue. Not the most exciting thing possible, but definitely some needed ground work for the series to build on. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - George Chrysostomou Jun 13, 2018

    Overall, this issue slowed down the title whilst still keeping us interested. The Immortal Men are clearly a team that will have longevity if this type of storytelling is to continue. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 14, 2018

    All of the New Age of DC Heroes titles have had a vague 90s vibe to them, but I don't think any has embraced it quite as much as Immortal Men. Its team of ancient warriors in an endless war have designs and origins that largely feel straight out of the "xxxtreme" era of comics. Read Full Review

    Three issues in, and it's still a little hard to tell exactly what to expect with The Immortal Men. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Garrett Hanneken Jun 13, 2018

    The Immortal Men #3 serves as a much-needed break from the action as it focuses on characters. However, I still don't feel any connection or care for the main protagonist, but regardless it was still beneficial to learn about The Immortal Men. I am just not sure if it is too late for me to feel connected to these characters since the story is starting to feel slightly bland. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Quinn Morris Jun 14, 2018

    I want to like it " The Batman Who Laughs is playing an interesting role " but good lord, Tynion, this needs to be character-driven and you have created a mind-numbing plot here. Read Full Review

    A little bit fragmented in terms of story and the art is a lot less consistent than the first two issues. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Louie Hlad Jun 13, 2018

    I think this book was mishandled from the beginning. It came out four months late and for all the Jim Lee hype, he only contributed to part of the first issue. I hope I'm in the minority and people are really digging it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jun 13, 2018

    I don't recommend the Immortal Men after three issues and actually, find each issue more frustrating than the one that came before it as the series progresses.  We have an under-explained, extremely slow-paced form of storytelling, that no longer has the draw of Jim Lee art to bring people in.  I don't anticipate this title hanging around long, no matter how many Batman Who Laughs cameo's Tynion is going to include ... 2 in 3 issues if you're counting at home.
