“Who really wants eternal war?”
Immortal Men is quickly becoming one of my favorite series so far. Its developed amazingly and the art by Jim Lee has yet to disappoint me. Big reveals and introductions this issue leave me on the edge of my seat with what’s to come in this series. The more I learn of these immortal factions the more I need to know this section of DC mythos. I can’t say too much with spoiling but please check out this series if you already haven’t it’s in issue six and so far is a substantial addition to the DC canon.
