I thought DC’s Eternity Girl #1 was amazing! And here’s why:

DC’s Young Animal imprint brings us a new title, Eternity Girl. It’s the story of Caroline Sharp, recruited years ago by a secret ops group called Alpha 13. Sent to the Middle East to combat Madame Atom, (great name!) things go wrong, and Caroline’s newly acquired, immense power is short circuited, causing her no end of difficulties.

Enter issue 1, where her powers have become uncontrollable. Shapeshifting, power radiating through structural concrete at random, it’s a disarming mess!

The title is written by Magdelene Visaggio, with art by Sonny Liew and coloring by Chris Chuckry. The visual style is captivating. This book has a beautifully minimalistic look, especially considering the mind-warping story. It’s a wild ride,  but well structured, and told with restraint. Caroline copes with her ‘life is hell’ situation, with her adventures laid out and beautifully colored, page after page.

Who will enjoy this comic? If you like original, offbeat stories that center around personable characters, give this one a try! It’s a freshly told bouquet of fun!

DC Eternity Girl #1, $3.99 for 28 pages of Mature content

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
