Summary – In a world of clones, the Human Liberation Army wants to free people from New Life’s grasp. Their leader Gail will take the most drastic, personal measures yet to do so. Rathmann, a former homicide detective turned New Life enforcer, is on the case, and is asking tough questions. Violet, a young girl and one of the few non-cloned humans (Pures, they’re called) left, is longing to enter the real world. But she has no idea the danger she is stepping into.
Review – Eternal #1 is a brand new series from BOOM! Comics which deals with themes of fantasy, sci-fi and action. The story is based around a universe in which people can clone themselves and the government in power (New Life) is wary of those who are Pures (non-clones).
The story is exciting from the very start as we are thrown straight into this new world and all the problems that exist within it. The characters we are introduced to (Gail and Rathmann in particular) seem like good characters and i am very interested to see how they are developed.
The artwork for this series by Valletta is very lovely. The colours are bold and their vividness is wonderful. The attention to detail is good and the design of the futuristic world makes for an interesting read.
Overall – Eternal #1 is a really interesting new series which is accompanied and accentuated by lovely artwork and i am looking forward to the next entry in the series to see how the plot will unfold.
