“Issue 3 of The Eighth Immortal gives us a glimpse of the fraught history of Kikan and Curipan, and the Pillan children they have raised as their own in an effort to stitch together the wound that was left by the loss of their son. The vow that forbids the emergence of other immortals means their time playing house will ever be short. On the day the child’s eyes turn green it will fall upon Curipan to strip the child of his immortality – a task that wears upon their hearts more with each passing generation. ”
