Eternity Girl Reviews

    Jul 05, 2019

    Much like the rest of DC's Young Animal line of books, Eternity Girl is a cheap knockoff of Grant Morrison's and other prime 90's Vertigo books. While it doesn't directly use any existing characters, this book touches on the same philosophical and existential themes as, say, Morrison's...

    A tiresome and dull story exploring a superhuman's depression and desire to kill herself. Desperately tries to ripoff 90's era Vertigo titles filled with metaphysical bullshit. Honestly, this whole thing was beyond pointless. ...

    Remember the Element Girl issue of Sandman? Never met anyone who said it was their favourite, but it's quite good. Well, if you wanted the serial numbers filed off and that turned into a miniseries, you're in luck. It also has meta elements familiar from Alan Moore's Supreme and much o...

    What if Flex Mentallo and Enigma... but bad? ...

    This book is frontloaded with some very Grant Morrison-like commentary on the endless cycle of reboots, retcons, and resurrections in superhero comics and how that, like, totally connects to spiritual concepts of reincarnation and eternity. Once you get past that, it turns into a more ...

    4.5 stars Visually and narratively stunning! Can?t say much without getting into spoilery details. But Visaggio and Liew really outdo themselves here! Only one thing missing: The book should have a trigger warning/content note at the beginning "suicide, self harm". ...

    I couldn't really get into this, did not finish, but open for another try sometime because deep down I believe it is pretty good. I just hated how depressing it was. The artwork is beautiful. ...

    Creative, inventive, scattered, oblique, impressive, and underwhelming. This was a little too ?out there? for me. In hindsight, I suspect the ?real? world events might have been paralleling (Is that a word?) the ?other? world events but ultimately I just didn?t care that ...

    Was the philosophy of this book complex? Not really. Does it resemble previous work by Grant Morrison? Sure. Is the story and art a little "out there"? You bet. If these are the reasons for people giving this book a bad review, then consider me the Chaos to their Order. I think the ...

    Eternity Girl is a serious acid trip of a book, all vibrant colors, shifting perspectives, and unclear timelines. It also made zero sense and I think I liked parts of it? So yeah, an acid trip. The general idea is that Eternity Girl is an immortal shapeshifter who wants to die. Soli...

    Sooo good, at times it is all a bit weird and strange and even confusing but it just keeps pulling you through. It's a story about purposelessness and purpose. How we have more control and direction and choices then we realize. Though theologically, it's not exactly or really what i th...

    I didn?t dislike this as much as I found it repetitive. 150 pages of hitting the same note becomes tedious. The idea is solid, although we?ve seen its like before by Gaiman, Starlin, Moore and Morrison, and the art is cool. Liew does an excellent job of portraying fractured reality...

    i say this as someone with depression: damn, that was unpleasant ...

    Blé... I think that I already ready a lot of stories that looks like the same, kinda generical for me. ...

    It showed potential in the middle but in the end it's disappointing. Another rushed ending and the story got wrapped up with a fat chunk of words explaining. If I want to read another chunk of philosophical words trying to show the alternate to depression I'd read a book. I read a comi...

    This was.... okay. Interesting concept, but unnecessarily wacky storytelling, flat characters, and merely okay art made this a bit of a drag to read. (Some of the covers are ffffantastic, though!) I was not surprised to find that Visaggio has also worked on Kim & Kim, which is anot...

    This book takes some effort to get into, but it's well worth it. This is an inspirational story of a young woman dealing with depression and attempted suicide. What I ultimately liked about the book was how Visaggio and Liew conveyed shifting realities. It reminded me, in a very good w...

    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 ...

    I read this for my book club and it?s so refreshing to read about female protagonists and their struggles outside any realm of romance. The art also highlights some of the absurdity of early character designs, without sexualising the characters. That?s a huge positive for me. T...

    Caroline Sharp, who is, apparently, "short for an elemental superwoman," is struggling, mightily, with death. This is an understatement. Ms. Sharp is a cauldron of anger and discord, abandonment and indecision, relationships defined by angles too acute to make sense of what lies in...

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but I really liked it. One of the rare books chosen by the comic book club I attend that I liked, so there's that! But first, this book needs to come with stronger content warnings for discussions on suicide. I know the blurb mentions that...

    I picked up the first issue of this miniseries when it was a ?pick of the week? at my LCS and I thought the cover looked interesting. After I read it I was hooked and added it to my pull list. Now that all the issues have come out it ended up being a pretty great series overall. ...

    Somewhat fittingly, I felt like I had read this story before.... In a number of ways this bears a resemblance to Sandman Issue 20, where Death helps a similarly immortal Element Girl find peace. Although the graphic novel pulls in alternate universes, Morrison-tinged meta-commentary...

    It's a real shame that Mister Miracle got all of the attention from DC and its readers last year, because in my humble opinion Magdalene Visaggio does something very similar with Eternity Girl, and she does it at least as well. Much like Tom King's miniseries, Eternity Girl is a time a...

    It was visually arresting and had some real standout moments, but it didn't quite work for me. Part of what held it back was the the concept that the was at odds with itself in three ways. The first is unfair. The idea that there was this plucky superheroine in the 60's is at odds ...

    I don't often read graphic novels, but when I do, my favorites are stories that I can't imagine being told as well in any other format. "Eternity Girl" written by Magdalene Visaggio and illustrated by Sonny Liew fits easily into that category. The story of an immortal super-hero grappl...

    Shade the Changing Girl is my favorite of the Young Animal books. Eternity Girl is very similar, the same kind of surrealist thoughts and meditations, but further dislodged from traditional storytelling. I loved the way the scenes were kind of deconstructed, with dialogue from the "rea...

    Fun, quirky story that starts like most dreary deconstructions of super heroes and gets cosmic, trippy and nicely bittersweet. There's a brief bit of 'is she crazy or is she really a super hero?' and the minute that goes away it goes full on weird and philosophical. People compare it...

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but I really liked it. One of the rare books chosen by the comic book club I attend that I liked, so there's that! But first, this book needs to come with stronger content warnings for discussions on suicide. I know the blurb mentions that...

    I picked up the first issue of this miniseries when it was a ?pick of the week? at my LCS and I thought the cover looked interesting. After I read it I was hooked and added it to my pull list. Now that all the issues have come out it ended up being a pretty great series overall. ...

    It's a real shame that Mister Miracle got all of the attention from DC and its readers last year, because in my humble opinion Magdalene Visaggio does something very similar with Eternity Girl, and she does it at least as well. Much like Tom King's miniseries, Eternity Girl is a time a...

    It was visually arresting and had some real standout moments, but it didn't quite work for me. Part of what held it back was the the concept that the was at odds with itself in three ways. The first is unfair. The idea that there was this plucky superheroine in the 60's is at odds ...

    Much like the rest of DC's Young Animal line of books, Eternity Girl is a cheap knockoff of Grant Morrison's and other prime 90's Vertigo books. While it doesn't directly use any existing characters, this book touches on the same philosophical and existential themes as, say, Morrison's...

    A tiresome and dull story exploring a superhuman's depression and desire to kill herself. Desperately tries to ripoff 90's era Vertigo titles filled with metaphysical bullshit. Honestly, this whole thing was beyond pointless. ...

    Remember the Element Girl issue of Sandman? Never met anyone who said it was their favourite, but it's quite good. Well, if you wanted the serial numbers filed off and that turned into a miniseries, you're in luck. It also has meta elements familiar from Alan Moore's Supreme and much o...

    This book is frontloaded with some very Grant Morrison-like commentary on the endless cycle of reboots, retcons, and resurrections in superhero comics and how that, like, totally connects to spiritual concepts of reincarnation and eternity. Once you get past that, it turns into a more ...

    4.5 stars Visually and narratively stunning! Can?t say much without getting into spoilery details. But Visaggio and Liew really outdo themselves here! Only one thing missing: The book should have a trigger warning/content note at the beginning "suicide, self harm". ...

    Creative, inventive, scattered, oblique, impressive, and underwhelming. This was a little too ?out there? for me. In hindsight, I suspect the ?real? world events might have been paralleling (Is that a word?) the ?other? world events but ultimately I just didn?t care that ...

    Was the philosophy of this book complex? Not really. Does it resemble previous work by Grant Morrison? Sure. Is the story and art a little "out there"? You bet. If these are the reasons for people giving this book a bad review, then consider me the Chaos to their Order. I think the ...

    Eternity Girl is a serious acid trip of a book, all vibrant colors, shifting perspectives, and unclear timelines. It also made zero sense and I think I liked parts of it? So yeah, an acid trip. The general idea is that Eternity Girl is an immortal shapeshifter who wants to die. Soli...

    Sooo good, at times it is all a bit weird and strange and even confusing but it just keeps pulling you through. It's a story about purposelessness and purpose. How we have more control and direction and choices then we realize. Though theologically, it's not exactly or really what i th...

    I didn?t dislike this as much as I found it repetitive. 150 pages of hitting the same note becomes tedious. The idea is solid, although we?ve seen its like before by Gaiman, Starlin, Moore and Morrison, and the art is cool. Liew does an excellent job of portraying fractured reality...

    It was visually arresting and had some real standout moments, but it didn't quite work for me. Part of what held it back was the the concept that the was at odds with itself in three ways. The first is unfair. The idea that there was this plucky superheroine in the 60's is at odds ...

    I don't often read graphic novels, but when I do, my favorites are stories that I can't imagine being told as well in any other format. "Eternity Girl" written by Magdalene Visaggio and illustrated by Sonny Liew fits easily into that category. The story of an immortal super-hero grappl...

    Shade the Changing Girl is my favorite of the Young Animal books. Eternity Girl is very similar, the same kind of surrealist thoughts and meditations, but further dislodged from traditional storytelling. I loved the way the scenes were kind of deconstructed, with dialogue from the "rea...

    Fun, quirky story that starts like most dreary deconstructions of super heroes and gets cosmic, trippy and nicely bittersweet. There's a brief bit of 'is she crazy or is she really a super hero?' and the minute that goes away it goes full on weird and philosophical. People compare it...

    Wow. I loved this comic even moreso than I thought I would. Surreal without ever losing heart. The art always work in service of the story, and it's the rare comic that leaves me feeling empowered to do better in the way Mind MGMT did when I read it. I more often than not feel disappoi...

    Much like the rest of DC's Young Animal line of books, Eternity Girl is a cheap knockoff of Grant Morrison's and other prime 90's Vertigo books. While it doesn't directly use any existing characters, this book touches on the same philosophical and existential themes as, say, Morrison's...

    A tiresome and dull story exploring a superhuman's depression and desire to kill herself. Desperately tries to ripoff 90's era Vertigo titles filled with metaphysical bullshit. Honestly, this whole thing was beyond pointless. ...

    Remember the Element Girl issue of Sandman? Never met anyone who said it was their favourite, but it's quite good. Well, if you wanted the serial numbers filed off and that turned into a miniseries, you're in luck. It also has meta elements familiar from Alan Moore's Supreme and much o...

    4.5 stars Visually and narratively stunning! Can?t say much without getting into spoilery details. But Visaggio and Liew really outdo themselves here! Only one thing missing: The book should have a trigger warning/content note at the beginning "suicide, self harm". ...

    Was the philosophy of this book complex? Not really. Does it resemble previous work by Grant Morrison? Sure. Is the story and art a little "out there"? You bet. If these are the reasons for people giving this book a bad review, then consider me the Chaos to their Order. I think the ...

    Eternity Girl is a serious acid trip of a book, all vibrant colors, shifting perspectives, and unclear timelines. It also made zero sense and I think I liked parts of it? So yeah, an acid trip. The general idea is that Eternity Girl is an immortal shapeshifter who wants to die. Soli...

    Sooo good, at times it is all a bit weird and strange and even confusing but it just keeps pulling you through. It's a story about purposelessness and purpose. How we have more control and direction and choices then we realize. Though theologically, it's not exactly or really what i th...

    I didn?t dislike this as much as I found it repetitive. 150 pages of hitting the same note becomes tedious. The idea is solid, although we?ve seen its like before by Gaiman, Starlin, Moore and Morrison, and the art is cool. Liew does an excellent job of portraying fractured reality...

    This was.... okay. Interesting concept, but unnecessarily wacky storytelling, flat characters, and merely okay art made this a bit of a drag to read. (Some of the covers are ffffantastic, though!) I was not surprised to find that Visaggio has also worked on Kim & Kim, which is anot...

    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 ...

    I read this for my book club and it?s so refreshing to read about female protagonists and their struggles outside any realm of romance. The art also highlights some of the absurdity of early character designs, without sexualising the characters. That?s a huge positive for me. T...

    Creative, inventive, scattered, oblique, impressive, and underwhelming. This was a little too ?out there? for me. In hindsight, I suspect the ?real? world events might have been paralleling (Is that a word?) the ?other? world events but ultimately I just didn?t care that ...

    Was the philosophy of this book complex? Not really. Does it resemble previous work by Grant Morrison? Sure. Is the story and art a little "out there"? You bet. If these are the reasons for people giving this book a bad review, then consider me the Chaos to their Order. I think the ...

    Eternity Girl is a serious acid trip of a book, all vibrant colors, shifting perspectives, and unclear timelines. It also made zero sense and I think I liked parts of it? So yeah, an acid trip. The general idea is that Eternity Girl is an immortal shapeshifter who wants to die. Soli...

    Sooo good, at times it is all a bit weird and strange and even confusing but it just keeps pulling you through. It's a story about purposelessness and purpose. How we have more control and direction and choices then we realize. Though theologically, it's not exactly or really what i th...

    This was a beautiful story about depression, identity, and the potential end of all existence. Visaggo's portrayal of depression was one of the most relatable, even with a character as unique as Eternity Girl. And Sonny Liew and Chis Chuckry really bring the story to life with their ar...

    I didn?t dislike this as much as I found it repetitive. 150 pages of hitting the same note becomes tedious. The idea is solid, although we?ve seen its like before by Gaiman, Starlin, Moore and Morrison, and the art is cool. Liew does an excellent job of portraying fractured reality...

    i say this as someone with depression: damn, that was unpleasant ...

    Blé... I think that I already ready a lot of stories that looks like the same, kinda generical for me. ...

    It showed potential in the middle but in the end it's disappointing. Another rushed ending and the story got wrapped up with a fat chunk of words explaining. If I want to read another chunk of philosophical words trying to show the alternate to depression I'd read a book. I read a comi...

    This was.... okay. Interesting concept, but unnecessarily wacky storytelling, flat characters, and merely okay art made this a bit of a drag to read. (Some of the covers are ffffantastic, though!) I was not surprised to find that Visaggio has also worked on Kim & Kim, which is anot...

    This book takes some effort to get into, but it's well worth it. This is an inspirational story of a young woman dealing with depression and attempted suicide. What I ultimately liked about the book was how Visaggio and Liew conveyed shifting realities. It reminded me, in a very good w...

    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 ...

    I read this for my book club and it?s so refreshing to read about female protagonists and their struggles outside any realm of romance. The art also highlights some of the absurdity of early character designs, without sexualising the characters. That?s a huge positive for me. T...

    Caroline Sharp, who is, apparently, "short for an elemental superwoman," is struggling, mightily, with death. This is an understatement. Ms. Sharp is a cauldron of anger and discord, abandonment and indecision, relationships defined by angles too acute to make sense of what lies in...

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but I really liked it. One of the rare books chosen by the comic book club I attend that I liked, so there's that! But first, this book needs to come with stronger content warnings for discussions on suicide. I know the blurb mentions that...

    I picked up the first issue of this miniseries when it was a ?pick of the week? at my LCS and I thought the cover looked interesting. After I read it I was hooked and added it to my pull list. Now that all the issues have come out it ended up being a pretty great series overall. ...

    Somewhat fittingly, I felt like I had read this story before.... In a number of ways this bears a resemblance to Sandman Issue 20, where Death helps a similarly immortal Element Girl find peace. Although the graphic novel pulls in alternate universes, Morrison-tinged meta-commentary...

    It's a real shame that Mister Miracle got all of the attention from DC and its readers last year, because in my humble opinion Magdalene Visaggio does something very similar with Eternity Girl, and she does it at least as well. Much like Tom King's miniseries, Eternity Girl is a time a...

    It was visually arresting and had some real standout moments, but it didn't quite work for me. Part of what held it back was the the concept that the was at odds with itself in three ways. The first is unfair. The idea that there was this plucky superheroine in the 60's is at odds ...

    I don't often read graphic novels, but when I do, my favorites are stories that I can't imagine being told as well in any other format. "Eternity Girl" written by Magdalene Visaggio and illustrated by Sonny Liew fits easily into that category. The story of an immortal super-hero grappl...

    Much like the rest of DC's Young Animal line of books, Eternity Girl is a cheap knockoff of Grant Morrison's and other prime 90's Vertigo books. While it doesn't directly use any existing characters, this book touches on the same philosophical and existential themes as, say, Morrison's...

    A tiresome and dull story exploring a superhuman's depression and desire to kill herself. Desperately tries to ripoff 90's era Vertigo titles filled with metaphysical bullshit. Honestly, this whole thing was beyond pointless. ...

    Remember the Element Girl issue of Sandman? Never met anyone who said it was their favourite, but it's quite good. Well, if you wanted the serial numbers filed off and that turned into a miniseries, you're in luck. It also has meta elements familiar from Alan Moore's Supreme and much o...

    What if Flex Mentallo and Enigma... but bad? ...

    This book is frontloaded with some very Grant Morrison-like commentary on the endless cycle of reboots, retcons, and resurrections in superhero comics and how that, like, totally connects to spiritual concepts of reincarnation and eternity. Once you get past that, it turns into a more ...
