E74: Men of Wrath #5 | Ivar, Timewalker #2 Reviews [Devil Comics Entertainment]

The final issue of Men of Wrath is released as Ira wakes up and discovers his son Reuben was killed by the same family that hired him the Polks. Realizing they will come after him because he helped his son get away, Ira prepares against the onslaught of the Polks and later kills their boss. Ira wakes up half burned in a hospital bed dying of cancer as his Lizzie and her child visits. Ira tells Lizzie his grandson will have the same generational curse as the previous Raths before him. Lizzie tells Ira there will be no more Rath fathers or sons. Ira realizes he has a granddaughter and asks Lizzie what’s her name as she leaves. Writer Jason Aaron and artist Ron Garney brought a complete tale to a satisfying conclusion. 

The second issue of Ivar, Timewalker brings Neela and Ivar through a series of time arcs from the prehistoric past to not killing Hitler. Ivar teaches her that killing Hitler would make her a murder just like him. They head towards Hitler’s bunker and find themselves captured by the Eternal Warrior. The best aspect of the Ivar series is the humor by Fred Van Lente and gives personality to the series and the characters.
