    I can't help but be further and further impressed with this developing series. Certainly, a great way to kick off a new age of heroes. Jim Lee and James Tynion seem to be on the same wavelength with how well the illustrations go with the writing. Every issue has a way to leave me hanging off of the cliff begging for more and more information on this secret society of immortals before I drive myself nuts, Alas, I must wait until next month.

    The end of this issue ensures that there will be some big changes coming up in the next one. And given how well told the book has been so far, Im sure they will be interesting and effective. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Ryan Perry Jul 11, 2018

    Tynion is thankfully able to pull the issue and this concept together at the end of The Immortal Men #4. The climax focuses on the Immortal Man and makes a very clear case as to why readers should like him. He just makes him do something cool. It's often overestimated what it takes to make characters likable. What Tynion does here was a masterclass in how to do that simply. The same can also be said, to a much lesser extent, about the treatment of Caden Park at the end of this issue. I wouldn't say he's completely gotten him over. But Tynion's finally realized he needed to explain what Park's powers are and why he's useful in this war if he wants readers to care. Read Full Review

    This one ends with the strongest cliffhanger yet. The Immortal Man was the whole reason for The Immortal Men to keep fighting. They were are part of his house. No one is strong enough to take his place. Maybe when we learn whether Caden really did receive a final message we can see if what his real role is in this story. Read Full Review

    Final Verdict: 7.5" A great story with many different elements combines with dynamic artwork, but perhaps could do with a bit more focus at times. Read Full Review

    The Immortal Men #4 does a lot to set the title up as a longstanding narrative with compelling characters. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 11, 2018

    The Immortal Men is probably the one New Age of Heroes book that's been a slow starter, but will emerge as a real contender. The elements are there and some of that potential is starting to come though. It's not there yet, but this is a book that a little patience will go a long way as it seems like it's going to be worth it in the end. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Keith OneShot Jul 11, 2018

    Ultimately I think the best part of this issue is the artwork, especially the pencil and ink work of colorist Arif Prianto. I liked the artwork's dark and detailed aesthetic, the expressive facial reactions, and brutal fight scenes. Without reading the first three issues I was a bit lost, but that's totally a fault of my own, so I'd suggest starting with issue one of the series if you're looking to read this story through. The shocking twist ending is enough for me to want to read the next issue, even if only just to answer a question raised at the story's end. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jul 11, 2018

    Tyler Kirkham provides a boost to the art duties, lending a big name to the New Heroes titles that had seemingly all but vanished, but doesn't give the book enough of a boost to make it worth a look see unless you're already invested in what's going on here.  The story is still mixing in origin tales after four issues, while largely ignoring the 'chosen' character of the title, in favor some wow moments with displays of power. While we get a decent ending the Immortal Men just don't seem long for this world.  Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 12, 2018

    Probably not the worst book in the New Age of DC Heroes line but definitely the most disappointing, The Immortal Men #4 doubles down on all the series' mistakes to this point and results in a thoroughly unsatisfying read. Read Full Review

    Immortal Men always feels like it's on the cusp of something amazing, and the events of this issue could either elevate things to that point, or just muddy the waters even more. Read Full Review
