- My Immortal Enemy!!! The Denon is a tour de force for Jack in his career... but what makes it so confounding is that the series was merely created to fulfill contractual obligations to DC Comics. Despite that being why the series was created, the 16 issues that exist are packed with some of the greatest quality art and stories of Jack's career.
Jason Blood aka Etrigan the Demon has been in a struggle over time with the evil witch Morgaine Le Fey. This dates back to the era of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. But in the series Morgaine is back in modern times and Etrigan is trying to stop her at all costs.
Unfortunately in #Issue16
(which was published in January of 1974) he is captured and rendered helpless from a spell by the sorceress. Never one to take her capture of an enemy for granted, she also imprisons Etrigan in a weird harness like metallic trap.
This is Kirby being Kirby, as the trap is very bizarrely constructed and puts Etrigan in quite an awkward physical alignment. The trap also looks EXACTLY like something that would have be used to imprison Mister Miracle!!! Le Fey is the villain, so of course she can not win... so eventually The Demon escapes his temporary imprisonment to defeat her. Although the story ends on a decent ending note... it's definitely not a series finale that we deserve. Not for something as well written as drawn as The Demon was over 16 issues.
