Award-winning I KILL GIANTS storytellers JOE KELLY (Deadpool, Savage Spider-Man) and KEN NIIMURA (Eisner Award-winning Umami) return to yank on your heartstrings with IMMORTAL SERGEANT!

On the eve of his unwelcome retirement, Jim Sargent (aka "Sarge") a grizzled, old-school detective, catches a break on a murder case that's haunted him for decades. Unfortunately, Sarge must drag his anxiety-riddled adult son, Michael, along for the ride or risk losing the lead forever. Can this dysfunctional duo overcome their own hang-ups, blindspots, and secrets to catch a killer?

    James Sargent makes a big impact as a main character. He walks a fine line between ridiculous and serious (leaning more to the former than the latter), and will be quite memorable. With Immortal Sergeant #1 Casey and Niimura have created a fun, energetic, and highly original new series that you wont want to miss. Read Full Review

    While Niimura tries to make some lemonade out of the lemons of a character with his kinetic action pieces, Immortal Sergeant goes nowhere in its script, despite being oversized at 40 pages. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jan 12, 2023

    Immortal Sergeant #1 left me with mixed impressions. While part of me is interested in finding out what Kelly and Niimura have planned for their protagonist, the thought of spending enough time with him to find out holds much of my interest in check. If gruff, moderately unlikable main characters are something that doesn't bother you, though, this story will have much more promise for you than it did me. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Jan 21, 2023

    Immortal Sergeant #1 is full of promise for the series as a whole, but it doesn't do much other than introduce the main character, on its own. It's hard to recommend someone buy this, when it's basically a cold open. Read Full Review
