Synopses & Reviews
Archaia Black Label and Relativity Media are proud to present an all-new, epic collection based within the world of the upcoming Tarsem Singh-directed film Immortals, starring Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke, and John Hurt. This OGN is not an adaptation of the film, but rather an anthology of original tales that expand the mythology and introduce fans to the exciting world featured within the movie. Witness the epic battle between Gods and Titans, with the future of Mankind in the balance! Featuring two painted covers by superstar artist David Mack (Kabuki), this unique hardcover flips, separating the book in two: half dedicated to tales of the Gods, the other half showing Man's struggles to claim the Earth as their own. These amazing myths are brought to you by some of the greatest creators in comics: Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray (Jonah Hex), Chris Roberson (Superman, iZombie), Jock (The Losers, Detective Comics), Ron Marz (Green Lantern, Artifacts), Dennis Calero (X-Men Noir, Batman), Jim McCann (Return of the Dapper Men), Steve Lieber (Whiteout), Francesco Francavilla (Detective Comics, Black Panther), Jeff Parker (Hulk, Thunderbolts), and many more!
Boasting 10 all-new, untold tales, Immortals: Gods and Heroes avoids the trappings of the usual lackluster film-to-comics adaptation and actually enriches the world of story soon-to-be presented on the screen.” — Nostalgic Books and Comics
Almost every page is graphically top notch in its own way. The medium is truly visually varied and this is a great display of that.” — The Daily Blam!
Awesome.” — Nerd Rage
If only more publishers of film-to-comics adaptations, prequels or sequels were to take the approach of Relativity Media and Archaia Entertainment, graphic novel companion pieces would surely fortify rather than subvert the films they spin out of." — Nostalgic Books and Comics

Additional contributing illustrators: Dennis Calero, Kevin Colden, Steve Ellis, Trevor Hairsine, Scott Hampton, Phil Hester, Jock, Rafael Kayanan and Patrick Scherberger
