Review: Eternal #1 (of 4)

Eternal_001_coverAIn 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—or Pures—is longing to enter the real world. But she has no idea the danger she is stepping into.

Talk about being thrown into the action. Writer William Harms throws the reader right into the tick of it with Eternal #1. And as such, the reader is forced to piece together what’s going on and what this world is about.

Like an action movie that dives right into it, we’re presented a high-octane sci-fi tale that feels a bit like a Fast and Furious film mixed with Neil Blomkamp. That’s not a bad thing as its lots of fun. With raids, and talk of Pures, and DNA harvesting, it not only draws you in, but also begins to present some interesting philosophical questions, something that science fiction excels at doing.

Harms is helped with the art of Giovanni Valletta which solidly mixes the sci-fi and action aspect. There’s lots going on in numerous scenes, and Valletta’s style brings out the kinetic feel of it all. Its particularly helped with some of the choices on how to present the panels as far as perspective. It’ll be interesting to see how the art pans out over the next four issues.

Overall, the series has a great concept, some cool art, and a hell of a start for a first issue. For folks interesting in science fiction, or action films, it’s well worth picking up and checking out the first issue.

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—or Pures—is longing to enter the real world. But she has no idea the danger she is stepping into.

William Harms (Impaler, Infamous) is crafting a gripping, sophisticated story about what happens if science completely changes the rules of life itself. This is a story where characters’ ethics and loyalties are tested, for society has changed but human failings remain the same. The next step in humanity is brought to glorious life by Giovanni Valetta (Dark Horse Presents).
