IMMORTAL MEN #1 paves the way for what’s to come for the DCU in the wake of DARK NIGHTS METAL!

The flagship of the NEW AGE OF HEROES titles arrives, featuring art from superstar JIM LEE!
With METAL #6 bringing one of DC’s biggest and best to an extremely satisfying conclusion, we are super eager to see what’s on the way from our pals at DC for 2018, and one of the earliest glimpses as to what we can expect from the DCU as a whole is the incredible debut issue of IMMORTAL MEN!
In IMMORTAL MEN, there is a secret history to the DC Universe of heroes who have protected humanity from the shadows since the dawn of time…and who can live forever.
Enter the Immortal Men!
The team, headed by the Immortal Man, has waged a secret war against the House of Conquest for countless years-but Conquest has dealt a devastating blow.
When their base of operations, known as the Campus, is savagely attacked, the Immortal Men must seek out their last hope-an emerging metahuman known as Caden Park!
Caden’s emerging powers may be able to ensure the Immortal Men’s survival-but will Conquest get to him first?
The exploration that began with DARK NIGHTS METAL continues in this incredible new series illustrated by comics legend JIM LEE (BATMAN HUSH)!

VENOMIZED #2 continues the mini-series that concludes what began in VENOMVERSE with the POISONS & sets the stage for what’s to come in Donny Cates & Ryan Stegman’s new ongoing VENOM series this Summer!

In the VENOMIZED mini-series, the story that began in VENOMVERSE reaches its epic conclusion with VENOMIZED! The POISONS, a species that hungers for super-powered symbiotes and their hosts, have picked their next target…THE MARVEL UNIVERSE ITSELF!

This will be the big finale to all the crazy symbiote-planet stuff that’s been running through the VENOM books for the last year or so, and will set the stage for what is easy the most anticipated VENOM series since the iconic RICK REMENDER & TONY MOORE run from a few years back!
In VENOMIZED #2, Venom and the X-Men have returned from the extraterrestrial adventures of “Poison-X” to find dozens of heroes and villains bonded with Klyntar symbiotes – and none of ’em are happy about it!

The government made every attempt to recover them, but after many years, they gave up. Nathan Cole…won’t.
He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those still living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe…Nathan is looking for something else?
Why can’t he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?
Jump on board, and find out why this is one of the biggest must-have releases of 2018! Great storytelling, great artwork, and a little slice of comic history in the making – trust us: you’re gonna want to grab a copy (or two) of this one!
