Eternity is a new Valiant four-issue miniseries from writer Matt Kindt and artist Trevor Hairsine (with colorist David Baron).

What’s it about? It continues the story of Abram Adams from several generations of Divinity mini-series’. Eternity is about gods and their followers. It’s told on a cosmic level, where gods can transport themselves to the surfaces of worlds, and interact with the citizens, and then freely depart. Their departure is not always under ideal circumstances.

Eternity is also about the kidnapping of one of a God-powered family, from their home in Ugra National Park, Russia.

Meanwhile, elsewhere, a being called The Observer has been murdered. There is considerable concern for both of these events, in particular, that of the death of The Observer. It’s feared that intergalactic chaos will result from his passing.

The look of Eternity deeply channels two visionary comic creators, Jack Kirby and Moebius. It’s a tough comic to ‘crack’ unless you are familiar with the characters from the previous mini-series. Check into Valiant’s wiki page for more backstory on this new title. The artwork is spacy, clean-lined and beautiful; highly reminiscent of French comic book illustrators Moebius and Druillet. Be sure to check out the stunning front cover by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic, which alone is worth the price of this issue.

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!!
