Sadly, this is the final issue of the Immortal Men. I guess it failed to grab a readership, despite being a very enjoyable book.
At least the storyline does come to a conclusion, with the final battle between the team and the Infinite Woman.
It’s frustrating, though. The issue clearly was not written to be the last one of the run, and a larger number of secret “houses” get briefly introduced. It’s easy to tell that these would have been explored in later issues.
There is also a teaser ending that brings in the Justice League. I hope this means we will see the team again, in the pages of Justice League, but I’m not going to hold my breath.
Aside from one panel in which a leg is drawn to absurd proportions, the art remained solid and reliable. It’s difficult to say very much more, as I feel I am giving some sort of eulogy for the book.
So let’s just go that way. Kind of absurd to bury a book about immortals, but there you have it.
We got introduced to a secret society spanning the millennia, and followed a young boy as he was recruited and manipulated, who wound up gaining powers never intended for him. Long time DC hero Immortal Man was killed off, in a way, and I hope that instead of completely ignoring this book, Caden gets brought back as that character eventually, blood mask or not.
Timber, Ghost Fist and the others will probably not be seen again, which is a shame. At the very least the characters in this series had interesting visuals. Of the lot, Timber is the one I would most want to see again.
So an early demise for the Immortal Men. But it was fun while it lasted.
