Sidenote: This review is for those who may have not yet read Eternity Girl. If you’d like a more in-depth review please check out our full review that contains spoilers by clicking here.
Eternity Girl is about a superhero that cannot die, but that’s all she wants to do. That’s just scratching the surface though. Caroline Smart is a multi-faceted character that you can’t help but fall in love with. As you read this issue you will find yourself instantly connecting with her and if you’ve ever had to live with a fear of judgment for who you are or have found yourself struggling with depression this book is one you should most definitely check out.
Like the other titles in the Young Animal line, Eternity Girl isn’t afraid to beat down doors and take risks. And such as the theme of other Young Animal titles, this one also delivers a powerful message about mental illness as we watch the lead character suffer with a strong case of depression.
Don’t get me wrong though, mental health isn’t the only message this book is packing. The story is entertaining, witty, easy to read and follow along with (especially if you’re new to comics), and will leave you wanting more. The characters are written flawlessly and in totally believable ways. The art is absolutely stunning as is the gorgeous coloring that helps paint the world so vividly and using many skillful techniques. If you’re like me you’ll find yourself fully immersed in this book and struggling to find one thing about it that you wish was done better (aside from maybe sooner release dates…can we make this a weekly comic??).
Definitely give Eternity Girl a try. You’ll be glad you did!
