Eternity Girl Reviews
Could this be the best book of the year?
Visaggio and Liew has pulled of a masterpiece using the background of superheroes to solve the existentialism of the human condition through a hero that cannot die
2.5 bumped up to 3 for intriguing art, but the story falls flat for me

Yes, it’s a Morrison knockoff. But at least it’s an attempt.
One of the best graphic novels I’ve read in a while.

One of the best miniseries I've read in a long time, Eternity Girl is a thought provoking examination of identity, depression, and suicide told through the lens of a superhero comic. Sonny Liew's art is incredibly detailed and layered with creative layouts and paneling, it truly brings Visaggio's story to life. If you enjoy the works of Grant Morrison and Jack Kirby this is an absolute can't miss.
