Caden Park comes to grips with his immortal lineage, thus launching a bold new era for the Immortal Men! However, this new epoch is threatened right out of the gate, as the Immortal Men must battle an unstoppable army of their fellow immortals in a floating war-city miles above New York City. That's one bite the Big Apple may not survive! Meanwhile, this war of immortals draws all kinds of unwanted attention, starting with black-ops badass Amanda Waller. Gulp!

    All in all, this was a great follow up to last week's compelling and heartfelt assault on what's left of our heroes. We now have reason to actually hope that the House of Action has a chance at turning the tide of this war, and with these five rag-tag superhumans, this will be a glorious and heartfelt battle. These last few survivors have a lot of justice to deliver. Read Full Review

    Timber has become my favourite member of the Immortal Men. Thats a good thing, as Caden has not grown on me as much as he might have. Still, its early days and the kid only really finds his footing in this issue. Read Full Review

    Immortal Men is getting into a nice groove and its taking a book that seemed in need of direction to one thats starting to gain momentum. Slowly, but steady. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Seth Singleton Aug 8, 2018

    We are starting to see Cadens purpose on the team. Its a change from the original plan, but most stories prefer to play that card because it makes everything unpredictable for the heroes and the villains. I like the move and the development, but it will work best when the details play a key role and avoid gratuity. We all know things can slip through the cracks, but for this book to survive its infancy, it would be better to catch them now rather than later. Read Full Review

    A forgettable issue with a memorable moment, the slower pace allows for a needed breather and some character moments, but won't stand out when compared to the title's past and potential future. Read Full Review

    The concept here was good, and the writer certainly is one of DC's best, but the execution just wasn't there on this title. Read Full Review

    The penultimate issue of this series is definitely building to something, but the impact of it all still feels hollow. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Aug 8, 2018

    Immortal Men shows all the signs of a dead series and canceled book.  The already tough to digest story is only harder to chew on here as it becomes truncated and almost nonsensical at points. Even the art is far from the artists involved best work.  There's very little here to celebrate and if I ever see the Immortal Men again after next issue it will be too soon. Read Full Review
